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!

I write articles for Ireland’s leading parenting magazine, Easy Parenting, as a member of their panel of experts. I love being a regular speaker at pre and post-natal courses and workshops. I aim to provide invaluable information and sleep advice to parents by hosting sleep clinics at venues, events and on my social media platforms.

I am available weekends and evenings. Please scroll down to view the packages I offer as well as some real-life family transformations from many of my past happy clients.

Consultations can be face to face (within Hertfordshire - further distances can be accommodated - please call for details). With the wizardry of modern technology our consultations can be video/phone calls so I can help families worldwide.
Please contact me for your free 15 minute consultation to find out how I can help you.

Packages

Sleep Solutions Package
This is the most popular package, and consists of:-

  • A preliminary evaluation. This is a comprehensive questionnaire about your child’s sleep habits and routines that you’ll fill out prior to our meeting. (Having this information in advance helps us make the most of our time together).

  • A private, 90 minute consultation in the comfort of your own home or via FaceTime/Whatsapp video call or telephone call, where we’ll discuss strategies, troubleshoot possible problems and learn how to address bedtime, naptime, nightwakings or any other specific issues you might be dealing with.

  • A detailed, fully customized bespoke sleep plan, that I will prepare for you after the conclusion of our meeting.

  • Five follow-up telephone calls during the first week following the consultation. These follow-up calls last about 15 minutes, and we’ll use this time to deal with any setbacks you might be having or answer any general questions.

  • One week of e-mail support. After your five follow-up telephone calls have been used, you still have an additional week of e-mail support where you can email me once daily, excluding Sundays I will always aim to reply to your queries within one working day.

  • Optional extra - real time text message support - at bedtime settling the first night you implement the sleep plan.  My extra support is charged at an hourly rate if you would like me personally on hand to guide and assist you as you begin implementing your sleep plan.


The total cost for my Sleep Solutions packages are:

Cot Sleep Solutions Package – if your baby or toddler is in a cot £250

Big Bed Sleep Solutions Package – if your toddler or child is in a bed £285 due to the complexity of the sleep plan.

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Hertfordshire (further distances can be accommodated with additional travel expenses– please call for details)
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). These calls typically last about 20 minutes.

  • Two follow-up e-mails I will give you my personal email address so you can email me on two occasions with any questions or concerns any time within the first 3 months of your baby’s birth or our consultation. After 3 months you can purchase another week of email support at any time should you need it .
