At Baby Sleep the Night, we are passionate about helping children sleep through the night and training the perfect consultants to join our team.
Why do we care so much? The answer is quite simple.
We are mothers! Karen has three beautiful daughters and Philly, Director of Training, has two daughters and a son. That’s how we have first-hand experience of what it is like to endure months on end of disrupted sleep.
Trust us when we say we really understand what you’re going through!
How Did We Become Baby Sleep Consultants?
None of my children were very good sleepers as babies, leaving me with many sleepless nights.
However, after the birth of my third child, my sleep problems intensified. Starting from the day she was born, my baby refused to sleep. When she did, she’d wake up every two hours and left me utterly and totally exhausted.
‘Why won’t my child sleep?’ I despaired.
After months and months of sleepless nights, I almost crashed my car with all 3 of my children in it! At that point I realised I needed help to get my baby to sleep the night for all of our sakes.
I did extensive research and found the perfect baby sleep consultant for me. Within 3 days, my 5-month-old daughter suddenly began falling asleep at 7 o’clock in the night… and sleeping right through until 7 o’clock the next morning!
Even if she did wake up, she quickly settled herself again without any intervention needed from us. I can still remember my husband and I looking at each other in disbelief.
This profound (and almost instant!) transformation made a huge impact on me. I decided there and then to dedicate my professional life to helping other parents solve their children’s sleep problems.
How Do We Help You Get Your Child to Sleep?
Over the last decade, BSTN Certified Consultants have helped thousands of families worldwide by developing gentle, caring sleep solutions to get children to sleep.
Our programmes were all designed by Karen with her detail-oriented approach so each plan is tailored to each baby, toddler, and child’s specific needs. We leave no stone unturned to ensure that every child can achieve their sleep needs.
When I finally became pregnant, I read every baby and child book and thought I had prepared myself for her arrival. The only problem was, she didn’t do what the books said and she didn’t sleep.
I felt the days slipping past in a blur of thinking about her sleep, talking about her sleep, reading different advice about how to get her to sleep and very soon, me and my husband were desperate and couldn’t agree on what to do.
Like Karen, I also searched extensively for that right fit – someone to put my trust in with my precious first born. I found Karen and my search stopped!
I then enjoyed a few more years of parenting bliss and predictable, peaceful sleep (plus the birth of my son) whilst continuing work as a Primary School Teacher.
But something was missing for me. Having gone through the process of sleep training myself, and seeing the benefits for my whole family, it was something I knew I was passionate about and I found myself thinking more and more abut being able to help others in the same way that I had been helped. I knew my work in teaching; my leadership roles (as English Leader, Phase Leader and Newly Qualified Teacher Mentor) plus my degree in Psychology, would help to support me in becoming a sleep consultant and coaching others through the same process.
And so my journey began.
A few years into my consultancy, and being a member of the ‘BSTN Family’, Karen hired me as her Technical Coach, supporting and coaching other consultants with their cases. This soon led to me becoming a Director of Training; supporting the initial training programme, leading all support with business growth and cases, plus ongoing training and support for all of the BSTN certified consultants.
I feel everything in my life so far has led me to this and I can’t wait to support you on your own journey as a sleep consultant.

I called Karen and she immediately she made me feel positive, her confidence told me that we were going to come out of this alive!! After speaking to her I just couldn’t wait to get started.
At the 90 min consultation I was made to feel even more at ease and confident.. Karen had put together a plan to suit us all with a routine that worked perfectly for our family.
First night was hard but even then she surprised us with how quickly she learnt.. By nights 7/8 she was sleeping 7-7.30 with one or two little shouts in the night but she was settling herself. I never ever thought she would be doing that.. I have my evenings back and my bed.. She is a different child in the day too.. So happy and she has a wonderful appetite now too. She loves her new routine and knows what’s coming next and I think she is actually beginning to enjoy going to sleep as she leans towards the cot when we sing her bedtime song 🙂
Best thing I ever did ringing Karen, she has changed our lives completely and was worth every penny!
After trying everything we could, we decided we needed professional help. My mother in law found an article about parents struggling with their babies not sleeping, so I decided to call Karen and I am so glad I did.
After meeting Karen who is fantastic and going through a plan suitable for Max it was time to start. I was dreading it at first but things couldn’t get any worse. The first few days were hard but were so worth it, it’s been 2 weeks now and Max has been sleeping through for a few days now which is amazing. Everything about nap and bedtime has completely changed for the better.
I would 100% recommend Karen to anyone struggling, not only is she amazing at her job she’s a lovely lady too.
