The program is evaluated by a cross-over study design with treatment and waiting control groups. After the treatment group has finished the course, the waiting group attends the sleep coaching session. All subjects fill in sleep logs and several questionnaires prior to (t0) and after the treatment group has finished the sleep coaching (t1), after the waiting group has finished the course (t2), and in a 3-month follow-up session (t3). Furthermore, sleep is recorded according to the AASM-standard criteria for two consecutive nights each at the time-points t0, t1, and t2. Subjective and objective sleep quality will be compared across the time-points, and between groups. In total, at least 48 participants are included in study. ;
