How Do Sleep Therapists Help My Baby Sleep?
Sleep therapists study child sleep behaviour and the best practises to ensure that a child imbibes good sleep habits. This helps children go to sleep consistently at night. They even self-soothe themselves back to sleep if they do wake up in the middle of the night, removing the need for parents to get up every time their child wakes up.
Parents tend to suffer through sleepless nights when their baby, child, or toddler fights sleep. They feel a child having sleep problems is a rite of passage, or that asking for help to get a child to sleep is a sign of failing as a parent.
I want you to know that this is absolutely not true!
Parents are not given enough information about something as vitally important as sleep. I’ve even heard medical professionals and health visitors give advice on the subject that is shockingly bad, and in many cases, makes things worse.
There are so many parents who have had children who would scream when put in cots. Others had exhausted babies fight sleep, or need feeding throughout the night, or babies who would only sleep when held… ALL night long.
Some parents even had children who would wake up multiple times a night. I’d know… I was one of them!
So What Does a Child Sleep Consultant Do?
A sleep consultant helps take all the trial and guesswork out of getting your child to sleep. They will design a plan for your child, using your knowledge about your baby, that you are comfortable implementing. This plan will be tailored to your child, but based on the Baby Sleep the Night™ philosophy.
I, Karen Bramall, designed the Baby Sleep the Night™ sleep plan for parents like me and you get our child to sleep really well through the night and take great naps too. It begins with a no-obligation free 15-minute consultation, for them to assess your child’s individual situation, explain how they can help you and for you to see if they’re the right fit for you. This can be face-to-face, or over the phone, Skype, FaceTime, or WhatsApp, so it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are! You have nothing to lose but 15 minutes of your time, and it will most likely be the best free 15 minutes you ever spend!
Should you decide to go ahead with working with the consultant, you would then complete a detailed questionnaire and book in a further 90-minute session.
This in-depth consultation is designed to get every detail of your child’s sleep habits. It is also used to identify why your child is fighting sleep. They will then use this information to fine-tune the sleep plan for your child and to teach you exactly how to implement it successfully.
Your child sleep consultant will then be there to answer every question that comes to mind. They will often tweak the plan as necessary to suit your child’s needs, which regularly change as their sleep skills improve. It can often be like walking a tight rope due to these changes and is where so many parents go wrong without professional help. However, your child sleep consultant will be there to and guide you through the detailed and gentle sleep training plan, step by step!
The beauty of having a network of self-employed, independent child sleep consultants is that there’s someone available to help you with almost immediate availability.
Each and every one of these Baby Sleep the Night™-certified consultants has undergone an extensive training and mentoring programme where I’ve taught them personally. They are fully certified to give you all the confidence and tools necessary to teach your child to sleep through the night and take great naps too!
Having a dedicated sleep professional on hand is absolutely invaluable! Almost every parent I’ve ever worked with has told me I’m a miracle worker and that it’s the best money they ever spent!
Is There a Child Sleep Consultant Near Me?
All of the Baby Sleep The Night™ certified consultants offer their services remotely, with the power of the Internet, it really is like being in the same room! Some people still prefer Face to Face so if you particularly want your dedicated sleep therapist to meet you in person, you can choose a sleep consultant near you. If you don’t find one very close to you, don’t worry. Most of these child sleep consultants will be happy to travel. Call them to see if that can be arranged!
Consultations are just as effective when done remotely as they are face to face, so don’t worry if there’s not a consultant near you.

We really cannot thank you enough for the help and support that you have given us with Dylan’s sleeping pattern.… For 12 months he had only ever slept through the night twice and due to personal circumstances outwith our control we had slipped into bad habits that we just couldn’t reverse. We did not know what to do or where to turn for help and so when I was given your details it was like a light at the end of the tunnel.We thought it would take a lot longer but within 2 nights of your help he was sleeping right through the night managing to get himself back to sleep and he now regularly goes for naps during the day. The plan is simple to follow but more importantly makes sense so we understood the reasoning behind it. I must admit that my husband was sceptical to begin with but he admits it’s the best money we have ever spent. In short Karen, you have given us back our lives and for the first time in 12 months we felt confident enough to leave Dylan with a friend and enjoy a meal out together. Read more “”
At 18 months Molly had never slept through the night, waking up regularly and co sleeping with me. I decided… that it was time to implement a new routine and help Molly learn to self-settle but wanted to make sure that whatever I did I followed it through and made it as easy as possible for Molly (and me!). A friend recommended Karen and I am very grateful she did as Molly now sleeps through the night for a minimum of 12 hours. The plan made a lot of sense and Karen made sure she explained the reasons for each step which made me fully confident it would work and demonstrated the importance of consistency. I really can’t believe that now, as long as I follow my routine, I put Molly into her cot, walk out the door and before I know it she is asleep and then I don’t see her again to the morning! Thank you Karen! Read more “”
“We first contacted Karen after the worst night ever!!!!! Our 7month old was having serious issues with sleep and they… were only getting worse. He would never go to sleep easily. He would be awake until 10pm sometimes, only settle being rocked or laying next to us, them would wake up numerous times a night, require 1-2 bottles per night and have his dummy constantly. When he hadn’t slept in his cot for 2 weeks (only in bed with us) we knew we needed help! I found her on Facebook and looked at all the glowing reviews, and seen as Karen was offering a free 15 minute consultation, I thought it can’t hurt to have a chat. Karen was immediately reassuring, telling me that it was nothing she hadn’t come across before and that with a little work, we could sort his sleep issues out for good, so we decided to go for it! Now if you’re reading this thinking, ‘I bet my child will be the only one that it won’t work for’, I thought the same. But it has. In the 2 weeks we have been doing the plan, Cooper now sleeps from 7pm till about 6am. If he wakes in the night he is able to settle himself. He has not been in our bed at all. He has not had a night feed at all. He has not had a dummy (night or day) at all. His naps remain short but they are in his cot rather than taking the car out to get him to sleep and I know this will come together in the next few weeks. I am currently able to write this because he is asleep in his cot at 3pm!!!! 2 weeks ago he would have been asleep on me. Was it hard work? Yes. Was there tears? Yes. Would I do it again? In a heartbeat!!! Absolutely and completely worth every single penny. We have our evenings and our bed back. But more importantly, our little man is getting much more sleep which will help him grow and thrive!!!” Read more “”
Our 2 year old son had never been a good napper or sleeper and finally we thought enough is enough!… Karen came to see us and brought a personalised sleep plan for us to follow. We felt she really understood our needs and our parenting style. With her support and encouragement, she gave us the confidence to enable our son to develop good napping and night time sleeping habits within a very short time. We are enjoying a brighter, happier toddler and we finally feel rested. We never thought it was possible! Thank-you Karen Read more “”
I contacted Karen for advice regarding our six month old. At that time he was waking 3 or 4 times… a night and could only return to sleep with milk or rocking. He was also unable to settle and nap in his cot during the day. Our initial 15 minute consultation filled me with hope and positivity and true to her word when Karen and I met for our one to one session she talked openly and honestly with me regarding the issues we were facing and how to change them. Her personal sleep plan for our son had him putting himself to sleep, and back to sleep on the first night, and sleeping through within days. I was amazed that he could adapt so quickly when we consistently carried out the plan. As Karen had advised naps would prove harder to master however two weeks later our son is successfully napping in his cot twice a day. The daily support in the early part of the plan is invaluable to discuss any issues and gain reassurance. An amazing service, from a genuinely kind and caring professional. Read more “”
I didn’t start this process entirely convinced it would work but I knew we had to try something. I couldn’t keep up… feeding every hour and I wanted my husband to move back into our bed after 3 months of sleeping apart. Nothing else we had tried had worked so we both decided to put our all into this training. On the first night, my husband sat with our son as he had his first ever attempt of falling asleep by himself. I couldn’t stay in the house and went for a walk instead and by the time I came back he was asleep. I only had to feed him once that night and from the second night on he slept straight through! I couldn’t believe it! My baby obviously was ready to sleep for longer periods but it was actually me stopping him from doing it by responding to every noise he made. This training has been the best thing we could have done for our son and it has transformed our family. Karen’s expert advice, clear explanation and encouragement means that my husband and I now better understand our baby’s needs and can read his tired signs, our son is a well rested and happier baby, and we are getting the sleep we so desperately needed at long last! I would recommend this to anyone. Read more “”
Karen’s advice and support has proved invaluable. Following two years of regularly broken sleep, we really weren’t sure what to… do next. Karen made sure she fully understood our situation before giving us strategies to use that have made a huge difference to our daughter’s sleeping habits and our ability to enjoy a decent night’s sleep. We can now deal with any problems with complete confidence. I wish we’d found Karen months ago. Read more “”
Hi Karen, I wanted to say a big Thank You to you helped my daughter with her sleeping issue. My… daughter Lilly has not sleep thought the night since she was born, now she is just over 2 years old. For the last two years, me and my partner have no life ourself, I have no more than 5 hours sleep every night, we couldn’t go out because she wakes up for dummy, holding hands and when she turned one and half years old, she started to come to our bed. Like lot of family, it is the easy opinion to do so, but gets to the point that she wanted to do it when she go down at 7 o clock, this makes us have no evening together. I did contact Karen about year a ago, I thought I can resolve the situation, I wish I did go ahead with it, but I am glad I talked to her again and made that works. Within 3 days my daughter sleeps in her cot, no dummy, no hand holding and she slept through till half 6. Now today(31th of Jan), two week since what we started, I don’t have to go in her room anymore, she sleeps herself now, it was amazing, I would never dream about someone don’t know my daughter would helped me make her sleep through the night. I would definitely recommend Karen if you experience the same as I do. She is worth every penny. Now me and my partner can go out and have our evening back, and I am not tired to handle the day anymore, I am so happy. Thank you Karen. Read more “”
I came across Karen’s details via a popular parenting forum, having spent far too many months googling sleep tips and… reading baby books with advice on how to get my baby to sleep well. We started sleep training at age 11 months, and at this stage it was becoming desperate for me as I was returning to work at age 12 months and was still rather sleep deprived with a baby who needed fed/walked or rocked to sleep in a baby carrier for naps; and sharing a bed at night – 75 centimetres of wriggling baby was not getting anyone a good night’s sleep! We had habits, which we knew were bad and weren’t working for our family – co-sleeping, breast feeding to sleep and using a dummy for naps/night wakings, and even these were not guaranteed to work as time went on and sleep time became a dread. Whilst some of these ‘habits’ were lovely in the early days, you can only learn for yourself that they aren’t ideal for teaching your baby good sleep habits, despite lots of anecdotes saying that these things never do harm! We were very much against crying methods for our family, and this was all that had worked for anyone I knew. Karen taught me that , yes you will have to listen to your baby crying and gave in-depth explanation of why, but that you can choose to be beside her so that she doesn’t feel abandoned Night 1 was very tough, but the next day held an amazing improvement and a few weeks on my baby enjoys the simple steps of our new nap and bedtime routine and reaches out for her cot to go to sleep. I can return to work safe in the knowledge that anyone can put my daughter to sleep in the daytime and that Daddy can do his share at bedtime! Karen is a great listener, with experienced ears and a ton of advice, you feel as though you are in it together and she genuinely cares – there is no judgement of your bad habits at all and I found her to be extremely professional and personable. My daughter got a bug 3 days into sleep training, but fortunately she had learned the principles already and was still able to sleep in her cot all night and for naps and Karen supported us throughout the illness. If you are concerned about the cost of paying for help with sleep training, it is understandable, given than many of us are on budgets during maternity leave and beyond, however, this is one of the best ‘baby purchases’ for me. You cannot put a price on a good night’s sleep – it is really a transformation and I would suggest that you consult with Karen rather than buying books that you won’t have time to read or follow through with complicated routines and plans that will confuse your sleep-deprived parent brain (from someone who has been there :)..) Remember before you had a baby when you used to get a whole night’s sleep? it can be very close again if you do something about it now – don’t hesitate – the change is so uplifting and most of all you will very extremely proud of your child for learning these valuable new skills so well 🙂 Read more “”
Karen, the sleep guru, is who you need if you have had enough of sleepless nights due to a baby/toddler… keeping you up at night! I contacted Karen after over two years of disturbed sleep and wish I had done so sooner, as after four nights, yes, just four nights, my daughter starting sleeping through the night. I never thought I would see the day (well night if we’re being precise!). Karen’s individualised sleeping plan meant that myself and my husband were equipped with the tools and confidence we needed to guide our daughter into learning how to sleep well, and I can honestly say, without hesitation, that she can now settle herself to sleep and sleep through the night without any parental input. Karen has been a great source of help and support throughout the process, and has been so positive and encouraging. She is worth every single penny and I will certainly be calling on Karen’s expert advice when baby number two arrives early in the New Year! Thank you so much Karen for helping us all to get our sleep back. Read more “”
