I’m a firm believer in ‘a house that sleeps is a house that smiles’!
I know what it’s like struggling to get your little one to sleep, trying all sorts of techniques, methods and products to help them settle and after all your efforts they wake up soon after.
Naps can be hit and miss, that’s if they even happen some days.
Not to mention if you are up multiple times overnight to help your child resettle. It can all amount to be one exhausting situation for everyone involved.
I can assure you it doesn’t have to be this way.
It is never too early or late to make positive changes to your sleep situation, it was the best thing I ever did and I never looked back, my only regret is I wish I did it sooner!
I personally love my sleep; I can’t function without it, so it was a shock when my daughter didn’t sleep for any length of time.
As a New-born she mainly slept on our chests, day and overnight! We took turns during the night to sit up in bed with her sleeping on our chests! We barely slept and the fatigue we experienced had an immensely negative impact on our family.
She was diagnosed with Reflux and after medication we were told sleep would ’get better’ but it never did. By 9 months bedtime meant lying beside her until she fell asleep for hours, gently transferring her to the cot hoping she would stay asleep. If she woke mid transfer, we had to repeat the process over again meaning bedtime was always unpredictable. I read books, spoke to Doctor’s, family, friends but any advice I received didn’t help and she never ‘grew out of it’.
After struggling for 18 months I hit breaking point. I was exhausted, my relationship with my husband became strained as our evenings were spent trying to get our daughter to sleep. I desperately searched the internet and all the things I tried failed. I decided to get help from a professional sleep expert.
With some straightforward changes my daughter slept 12 hours overnight and napped in her cot. I never thought it would work as I was sure she was unfixable, and I had a child that just didn’t sleep…how wrong I was!
She learnt to be an independent sleeper, a skill for life and it transformed my life!

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.
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). These calls typically last about 20 minutes.
Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Hertfordshire (further distances can be accommodated – please call for details)
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’. This is a popular option for past clients who have recently had a new baby – or who are expecting in the near future. It consists of:-
A private, 60 minute consultation, usually by Facetime/Whatsapp video call or telephone call, during which we’ll use to discuss any particular challenges you are having with your child. Since we’ve already worked together, a full hour is usually more than enough time to cover all your questions and concerns. Includes 1 follow-up email that you can use to send me any additional questions that might come up as you get things back on track. I’ll aim to respond to your email within one day.
Optional follow up support phone call that you can use to speak to me for 20 mins and ask any additional questions that might come up as you get things back on track.
Sleep chats is a chance to have a 30 minute phone/video call with me about any specific sleep challenge you’re dealing with. Suitable if your child is able to self-settle.
