About Our Site

Insomniacs was formed to offer a unique reference point on how to overcome insomnia, sleeping problems and sleep disorders.

Suffering from a sleep disorder on a short or long term basis is extremely stressful and can also affect your loved ones or those you work with. Insomniacs.co.uk is intended to help you tackle this challenging and often debilitating condition. Many of our contributors have themselves suffered from sleep disorders, so we have a keen insight into what does - and does not - work. We understand the problems faced by those with sleep disorders, and how those difficulties can be carried over into daily life.

This site isn't aimed solely at insomniac sufferers, but also at those who care about them. If someone close to you has a sleep disorder, we want to help you to help them too.

Our mission is to provide a dynamic, top-quality website that will help you, and those closest to you, get a good night's sleep.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

Insomniacs was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding Insomniacs and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
