Helping parents overcome sleep challenges in a compassionate, non-judgmental setting

From 6 months of age onwards-working directly with me one a one-to-one basis will give you the confidence to make the necessary changes.  My support and guidance will help you implement the plan I will devise for you and motivate you to succeed. The plan is developed based specifically on your child’s, age, stage and your personal parenting preferences.  I work remotely via zoom with families worldwide. I will see you once your baby is 6 months plus of age- before this timeframe I encourage that you would use my sleep chat, online courses or books as a resource in the first few months, as very often the challenges that you report are representative of typical infant sleep. I work on a professional, individual basis so that I can safely and appropriately provide support for your specific family unit.

There are countless reasons why children and their parents experience sleep challenges….

Here in my practice, I encounter some of, or a combination of these potential issues, on a daily basis:

  • Your child may wake frequently overnight
  • Your child may wake for a long period of time overnight
  • They may wake at 4 or 5am to start the day
  • They may resist bedtime-taking 1-3 hours to go to sleep
  • They may fight daytime sleep
  • May sleep for short intervals by day
  • May need parent support, feeding,  buggy or car to achieve sleep
  • Require multiple night feeds
  • Require parental presence and high-level support at bedtime and through the night
  • Can only sleep in parent’s bed either at bedtime or overnight or both
  • Wake almost hourly once they have gone to sleep at bedtime
  • Need the dummy re-plugged multiple times during the night
  • Refuses to go to bed
  • Refuses to stay in bed
  • Wakes during the night for feeds and to come into bed with you
  • Only sleeps for 20-40 minutes at a time for day

I recognize that if you are reading this you may be over-tired and not have had uninterrupted sleep for a long time.  To begin my sleep process, you do not have to complete a lengthy sleep diary.  Completion of a simple client history review will enable me to identify core contributory emotional and developmental factors providing scope to devise a suitable, bespoke sleep plan for your family that encourages better sleep to emerge.  It is important to me that parents receive high quality information, guidance and support and I continue to invest in training, education and research to ensure that when you select me to accompany you on your journey, that you are are assured that it is the right decision.

Even if you have already tried everything-and I hear that all of the time! Gina Ford, The No-Cry Sleep Solution, Super Nanny, my own books and courses even! Cry it Out or any other sleep program or book, I will be able to help you improve your child’s sleep. I will devise a comprehensive, customized, step by step plan, designed to minimize crying and maximize your ability to address the issues that exist. I stand over my work, committed to helping you get a better night’s sleep.  I work with you for the month or so, following our meeting to help, support and accompany you, to make adjustments to the plan and ultimately get your family a restful night’s sleep.

To achieve good sleep, you do not have to give up breastfeeding, room sharing, co sleeping, get rid of dummies for example and you definitely do not have to cry it out.

With commitment, collaboration and predictability from parents and specific guidance, motivation, mentoring and support from me; you can expect to see improvement in as little as 4-6 days and most certainly within 2 weeks.  It typically takes me 3-4 weeks to complete the process, during which time it is not advisable to go on holiday, have a sleep over, vaccinations or go away for a weekend.  It can take the brain 3-4 weeks to learn a new pattern and I want you do give your child the best opportunity to learn and I want you to work with an industry leader to achieve this.
