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’ve truly loved every single day of my work transforming the lives of families over the last decade, whilst still being there for my children.
This was a way of life that I only thought would resolve naturally and I just kept putting off dealing with it. I saw Karen’s article in a local magazine and felt I had nothing to lose by ringing her. Karen was warm and understanding and certainly gave me light at the end of the tunnel. She kept me focused when I wobbled – and I had a few – but was there for me every step of the way, confident and positive. Without her support and guidance there is no way I could have done this. She has gone over and above all my expectations. Have we had the double sleep through? Of course we have – every night is a double sleep through! I’m not sure why I let this drag on for so long but sleepless nights seem a distant memory now. I’ve got my life back, my husband back in the bed and I can honestly say to my friends ‘yes, my boys sleep the whole night and don’t wake once’ which I NEVER thought I’d hear myself say!! Don’t hesitate, call Karen, you won’t regret it. She’s my new best friend!
Just after I convinced my husband to let us spend the money on Karen’s services, we had such a rough night that he said he’d pay double! I think he nearly hugged her when he answered the door to her. We had the complete solution package and the newborn package for our two children. We expected it to be hard at first but we saw a massive improvement on our very first night of sleep training our toddler. Over the two weeks of training we have turned things around and he is now sleeping through to more like 7am with no night waking and still going to bed with no problems. We have also learnt valuable skills to help the newborn who is also sleeping through already at just 6 weeks.
The best thing about hiring Karen is that she is there for you the whole way through the process. She tailors the training to your family’s needs and reminds and advises you if you come unstuck and she makes sure you see it through. You can’t get that from any book. This service is well worth every penny and I feel we will have years of benefit from it. I highly recommend it.
My son is 16 months old and has only slept through the night 3 times. He would wake up the same time every night at around 11pm and 3am. He would always want milk to get him back to sleep. Me and husband had come to point where is was driving us mad and had to seek help. That’s were Karen came in. After having a new routine and the fabulous Karen at hand he was sleeping through after night 4! I thought it wouldn’t work and that I would cave in but no I stuck to it and the result was amazing. I have already recommended her to friends and I am sure that they will be amazed as we were.
