Insomnia and sleep apnea are two major culprits causing stress and fatigue in the lives of Fibromyalgia patients. But now, an online British service called Sleepio offers an online sleeping coach called The Prof—a friendly cartoon man in glasses–to guide you through the issues that may be preventing a good night’s sleep.
The first step in the process is entering your name, after which The Prof will greet you. Then you will take a ten minute survey that provides the Sleepio system with information to analyze you. Though it’s a British company, the program can be purchased by people all over the world with a simple credit card payment, after selecting a plan. It lasts for six weeks.
The co-chair and scientific director of the company is Professor Colin Espie, Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of the Sleep Centre at the University of Glasgow. Among other honors, he also heads the World Sleep Federation’s insomnia task force.
