‘You’re obsessed with sleep!’ – I’ve had this accusation levelled at me several times and you know what? It’s true! I love sleep! So, when I gave birth to my precious daughter 4 years ago and discovered that she did not share my love of sleep I was devastated! 6 months into her little life and she still did not see the joy of sleep. In fact, she much preferred being awake; every forty-five minutes throughout the night, with a two-hour play session around three am. Something had to change, and it did, thanks to Baby Sleep the Night.

Teaching my daughter independent sleep skills was a turning point in my journey as a mother, it restored my confidence as a mum, brought routine and calm to our days and as a family we flourished. I was able to enjoy those precious early years with clarity, rather surviving each day in a sleep deprived fog. My daughter was happy, contented and no longer constantly cranky, I couldn’t have asked for more.

The difference this made to our lives combined with my love of sleep ignited my passion for helping others who find themselves suffering the overwhelming effects of sleep deprivation. I have been personally trained by Karen Bramall the founder of Baby Sleep the Night who has helped thousands of families worldwide with her gentle and effective methods.

I am scientifically trained with 12 years of experience of working in genetics meaning I truly do understand that everyone is unique! Therefore, I will take the time to get to know you and your child, so I can develop a sleep plan that is tailored to your family. We will work closely together while you implement the plan, as I support and guide you throughout.

If you’d like to give your child and your family one of the greatest gifts you can, call me now for a free fifteen-minute consultation.

New-born – Get it right from the Start Package
This is a comprehensive training plan helping parents of new-borns train their little ones to have fabulous sleep skills from a very young age and can be implemented from day one! Getting an early start in establishing healthy sleep habits is a huge advantage for both babies and their parents. With this package, you will learn everything you need to teach your baby to be an independent sleeper right from the beginning. It is a fantastic gift package for new parents too and consultations can take place before or after the baby has arrived. (gift certificates available and can be posted direct to the lucky couple if required) It consists of:-

  • A private 60 minute telephone or in-home consultation. We will discuss how to establish a healthy sleep plan for your new-born, discussing sleep needs, schedules for feeding, naps and bedtime, how to help teach your baby the difference between day and night, creating the right sleeping environment, strategies to encourage sleep, when to expect your baby to be sleeping longer stretches, and common sleep issues that can be easily avoided.

  • A detailed sleep plan. If you are expecting, the gentle, caring techniques in your sleep plan will teach you how to create an independent sleeper from day one, and will give you a flexible guide to quickly bring some routine, when baby arrives, to a time of your lives which can otherwise become quite overwhelming. If you baby has already arrived, your sleep plan will be fully customized for your family.

  • One follow-up phone call. If you are following a sleep plan from the beginning then you will find your baby is naturally developing wonderful independent sleep skills, you may find you have some questions so we will schedule a telephone call within 2 weeks of the baby’s birth just in case (if you are expecting) or within 2 weeks of consultation (if you already have your baby at home).

The Refresher
It is not uncommon for babies and toddlers who have been taught to be great sleepers to ‘test the boundaries’ from time to time. This option is for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a ‘refresher’.

“We had used Lucy previously when our daughter had just turned one and was a terrible sleeper.
Her advice and support had been fantastic and so when we started having difficulties again we didn’t hesitate in getting back in touch with Lucy. 

Isabelle had never been the best at settling at the beginning of the night but it was getting progressively worse and now either my husband or I were having to stay with her, holding her hand or talking to her until she fell asleep, sometimes this would take hours. We were also having the occasional night time waking and having an equally difficult time settling her again. We needed to do something about it; evenings are precious. 

We contacted Lucy for advice and help and once again her support got things back on track. Within a few days Isabelle was back to settling herself and we were back to having our evenings again. Lucy’s advice is brilliant, she doesn’t judge for the mistakes that you make and soon gets you back on track so that everyone gets a good night’s sleep. It really is the best money spent and I am always recommending her to others.

Thank you Lucy!”

Amy – Mum to Isabelle 23 months

“We were really struggling with our baby’s sleep routine. He was waking up every hour or so throughout the night.  

We were very sceptical about using a sleep consultant, but we were pretty desperate – and Lucy was recommended by several people we know.  So we gave it a go and were stunned by the results!! 
By day 5 of the new routine, improvements started to show. By day 7, our baby was sleeping 11hrs through the night, which was such a relief.  The first 3 days were hard work, but we remained committed, and Lucy gave great support throughout.

This was a bit of a life-changing moment for us!”

Maria –  Mum to Lucas 6 months

Lucy’s advice has really changed our lives as we can now sleep without having to wake up 5 or 6 times in the night.

Even though, we were prepared to persist with the programme for as long as it took, we already saw improvements on the first night and by the second night our son had a 11 hour sleep uninterrupted. Our little boy is now falling asleep without having to be rocked or breastfed, he sleeps for 10 hours and most importantly, is a happy and rested boy when he wakes up.

As to us, we wake up rested and positive and ready to give our children our best!

Giving Lucy a call has been the best decision we ever made!

Consistency is the key and we can’t thank Lucy enough for her support and advice.

Fabiana - Mum to Thiago - 14 months


I used Lucy on my 6 month baby who needed to be held all night, fed all night and rarely slept more than 30 mins at a time. the most she had slept was 1.5 hours in 6 months.

I really thought sleep training wouldn't work but I was desperate. Within 2 nights my baby was sleeping 12 hours straight in her own room with no night feeds. She now naps 3 hours in the day too. Both she and I are transformed.

I highly recommend anyone struggling to try it. You will not regret it. Lucy has saved our relationship. It seems like a lot of money but it was the best gift I could give my baby. she is so much happier and healthier now.

Judith, Mum to Kalani aged 6 months.



Before speaking with Lucy, my little man was up constantly during the night and didn’t nap very well at all during the day. He would wake three or four times just in the first hour or so of bedtime and then throughout the night. He would always feed to sleep and didn’t know how to self settle.
My hubby doesn’t do the night shift so I was exhausted with the multiple night wakings!
Working with Lucy just changed everything. I really am so grateful to her, I have my evenings back, in fact I have my life back!!
His daytime naps are much better too. It has also meant that I have been able to have more quality time with my older daughter which has been amazing :)

It wasn’t always easy, the process takes some perseverance but it is 100% worth it. Thank you, Lucy!!

Gee, Mum to 8.5 month old boy

“Lucy came to rescue when we moved house and my 8 year old daughter struggled with her new surroundings. My daughter (who had been a good sleeper previously) had started to complain about strange noises, shadows and began waking at night.  The sleep routine was to begin reading and cuddling in bed until she fell asleep and for an easy life we allowed her to sleep with us when waking at night.  This was becoming hard in general and we were worried it was impacting on her adapting to the new house.  

My sister had used ‘Baby Sleep the Night’ for her young children and had great results so I called Lucy, who had a great profile that made us feel comfortable. After the initial call and questionnaire Lucy visited us at home, spoke to Us and our daughter about her bedtime routine and gave us some great pointers to remove the props that we inadvertently created. 

Being an older child we were concerned that our daughter would rebel as she understood more but we nervously spoke to her about the reasons behind the changes and Lucy’s gift / ‘bribe’ to sleep 3 nights was a great incentive and did the trick to entice her.  For the first few days our daughter said she ‘didn’t like the routine’, but soon she was sleeping with ease.  The big change that Lucy helped us implement was to make bed about sleeping only and reading out of bed and repeating the same pattern every single day.  

The difference in our daughter is unbelievable – her confidence and energy has changed.  She bounces out of bed in a cheery mood and is less clingy.

I cannot recommend Lucy highly enough, her advice has made us all much happier in our new home.”

Kal, Mum to 8 year old girl. Birmingham

Before contacting Lucy my daughter was a nightmare at sleeping. She would wake nearly every hour in the night, needing to be fed to sleep and was sleeping in bed with me. My husband and I had no time together as she would constantly wake up and need me to get back to sleep. Equally naps always were done by being fed to sleep, in the car or being taken for a walk. I kept thinking things would just improve but they didn’t.
When Isabelle turned one and with me returning to work I decided I needed to do something. After a recommendation from a friend to the website I searched through testimonials and that’s where I discovered Lucy. 

Lucy was so easy to talk to and I felt completely at ease, she didn’t make me feel guilty for how I had been getting Isabelle to sleep. She reassured me and made me feel more confident, she assured me that Isabelle could and would sleep through the night. After sharing the plan with me I wasn’t sure it was going to be achievable, after the first night of the plan I still felt like it wasn’t going to work! However, by night 4 things had massively improved and by night 7 Isabelle has slept through for the FIRST time ever. Incredible. Now over a month in Isabelle has continued to sleep through the night, she puts herself to sleep at night and self-soothes should she wake. She even naps in her cot in the day, which I thought would never happen. I wish now I had done it sooner!

Fantastic, thank you so much Lucy! The support that you get throughout the process is great, the plan is simple and easy to follow and the follow up support from Lucy was brilliant; answering questions and giving tips. My husband and I finally have our evenings again and Isabelle loves sleeping! 

I cannot recommend Lucy more! Thank you. 

Amy,  Mum to Isabelle, 13 month, Lincoln.

"After previously sleeping for longer stretches, Oliver had started to wake more frequently once he'd reached 3 months. He was up at least every 2 to 3 hours during the night and rarely napping for longer than 45 minutes during the day. He was starting each day exhausted as were my husband and I. We had tried to follow recommendations in a baby sleep book and although the situation had improved slightly, we needed someone to tie everything together for us. Lucy's support was invaluable - she provided a tailored plan for Oliver that helped him develop his own sleep skills. Within only a couple of days he was waking for just one night feed and sleeping for 5 to 6 hours at a time. The length of his day time naps also increased to up to 3 hours and he quickly became much happier during his awake time. He now falls asleep on his own within minutes without any need for a dummy or for us to soothe him. The support has made a big difference to our lives - thank you Lucy."

I am happy with the results achieved with the support and orientation from Lucy. Our little baby girl, who was 17 months-old when we initiated the process, had a really hard time to sleep by herself as she was completely addicted to milk bottles, dummies and heavily cuddle dependent as part of her sleeping routine. I usually took an average of 2 hours every single night to make her sleep.

Following the instructions provided by Lucy we managed to achieve good and tangible results. The new process was initiated on a Friday and after a long and tough weekend, we finally managed to make our baby forget the dummy. My husband and I also followed strictly the new sleeping guidelines provided by Lucy and as a result the overall getting to sleep process reduced to 10 minutes on average. Such results were achieved on a 10-day window so it`s also considerably quick but it does require a lot of commitment and determination from the parents to maximize results. We really thank Lucy for her support as we see our baby growing more settled and independent while my husband and I also have more extra time for ourselves during the nights.

Thank you very much!!

Kleber and Angela

Before we started on Lucy's sleep plan our 8-month-old daughter was waking up every 45 mins to 2 hours, every single night, from birth. It made me beyond exhausted. We had tried everything we could think of to help her sleep longer but nothing we tried was working, until we started sleep therapy with Lucy.

At first I was quite apprehensive that the plan wouldn't work, I thought that Lucy was being too ambitious, but we noticed an improvement after the first night. We had a few setbacks due to illness, but now she is sleeping at least 11 hours straight through the night every night.

The plan was easy to follow and understand and Lucy was a dream to work with. She was so friendly and approachable and didn't even tell me off when I went off plan but helped us to get back on track. I would absolutely recommend Lucy to anyone struggling with sleep issues. She's actually changed our lives, I couldn't thank her enough. 

Gemma – Mom to Lowenna 8 months old.

When I first contacted Lucy regarding sleep training, my 8 month old son was waking up to 10 times a night and feeding every 2 hours during the night, feeding himself to sleep and often being brought into our bed. During the day he was napping 3 times after being rocked to sleep but only staying asleep for 30 minutes at a time and often only napping on my chest. 

I kept hoping it was the 4 month sleep regression, then that it would improve when he was on solids and then when he went into his own room but none of these improved a thing and I was exhausted! Lucy straight away reassured me that we had been doing a good job and that with some guidance and tweaks we could achieve a full nights sleep, I think I laughed at her at this point, I was very sceptical but was hoping she was right. 

The initial full consultation was extremely informative, and I felt confident and excited to put the plan into practice. The first night although taking him a while to settle was fantastic and it was the first time that I had not held my baby in over 12 hours as he did not require my assistance to get himself back to sleep and didn’t need feeding through the night and it’s improved daily since then. 

We had a couple of minor setbacks with my son catching a cold on night 2 and then he learnt his new skill of rolling over but getting stuck, but with Lucys reassurance we continued with the plan and still managed to make progress. Within a few days we had mastered the day naps with him happily babbling to himself before getting himself comfortable and drifting off in a few minutes without a single cry and sleeping 1.5-2 hours a time. 

During the consultations and email follow up a few minor things were tweaked in response to how we were progressing and by night 13 he had achieved a solid 11.5 hours sleep and perfect naps. It has resulted in a huge improvement for the whole family, my little boy is generally happier and well rested, my husband has more confidence with my son due to the routine and lack of dependence on being breastfed for comfort, I feel amazing for finally getting some sleep and having energy to play all day, the house is looking cleaner and as a couple we have managed to regain our evenings getting some wind-down time after babies bedtime and no child in the middle of our bed. 

I can whole heatedly say that without the one-to-one guidance and follow up with Lucy I would not have been as successful so quickly and most likely would not have seen it through and would still be foolishly hoping that sleep would improve at the next milestone whilst becoming more and more exhausted. I would highly recommend Lucy to any other exhausted parents, we cannot thank her enough x 

Laura – Mom to George 8.5 months old.

As a mum, I recognized that my son’s sleeping was not ideal. (Never mind, my own.) By 2 and a half he had still not ‘slept through’, required about an hour to ‘get off’ to sleep, and was waking regularly, requiring co-sleeping, and breastfeeding to get back to sleep. Whilst this had worked in the short term, it was clear that things were not going to change without something drastic. I was worried that the poor sleep habit would impact on his health and education in the longer term, and his behavior, so that is why I engaged Lucy’s help. In the past, the only advice offered to us by a health visitor was to leave our son to cry, which was uncomfortable for me, so I was relieved to find there was an alternative solution.

Lucy was very helpful and approachable from the start, relating easily to our worries and without judging our decisions or parenting, which was a relief. As Lucy is a mum, she knew and understood what my worries and concerns would be and did much to reassure me as the process went.

Lucy’s plan provided exactly what we needed, it was simple and easy to follow. Importantly for me, it also did not require us to leave our son to cry or shut him away with a stairgate. The plan progressed quickly, and our son responded way beyond our expectations; by the third night he was settling quickly back to sleep after waking. Lucy called us regularly and offered her support. We had one bad night when our son was ill, and Lucy immediately offered to call to offer her advice regarding back up plans and reassured us that we could get back on track, which we did.

Lucy checked in with us over email daily and offered further advice and tweaked aspects of our routine. After two weeks our son has finally ‘slept through’ for two nights, and bed time no longer involves an hour of lying on the bed ‘demonstrating how to sleep’. This hour is now better spent playing and reading, and bed time is an enjoyable process. He has learned his routine and looks forward to all aspects of it, as do we.

I would not hesitate to recommend Lucy’s help and advice to anyone with a child who has trouble sleeping. Sleep is such an important part of development. As a parent, I needed some structure, and to have confidence in what I was doing, which Lucy provided. We are very grateful to her for her valued expertise.
