I am a certified Sleep Consultant and I can help you gently teach your child to fall asleep and stay asleep independently, a skill they will have for life!
As a Pharmacist, health and wellbeing is very important to me both personally and professionally and for several years I have been especially interested in the benefits of a good night’s sleep. I am proud to have been hand-picked and trained by Karen Bramall, founder of Baby Sleep the Night, and I am now able to teach you the techniques and help other sleep deprived families see the same life-changing results we experienced.
As a certified Baby Sleep the Night Consultant, I am able to provide individualised plans, using gentle and proven methods to help your whole family sleep and feel better. I recognise that all babies and families are individual and I take the time to really get to know you, so I can develop a sleep plan that is as unique as you are. You may have other children to consider or work commitments that mean your child spends time with a childminder or at nursery; I can develop a plan that will work foryou. Whether you have a newborn, older baby, toddler, or twins, I can help you to gently teach your child to fall asleep and stay asleep independently.
I have been in your shoes and have experienced first-hand what it feels like to get through each day on only a few hours of broken sleep. As first time parents we knew that we would be in for a few weeks of sleepless nights. Fast forward almost 18 months and we were still getting up every 2-3 hours at night to help our son go back to sleep and bringing him into our bed when he woke at 5am! I remember going to bed each night hoping that this would be the night when he ‘grew out of it’ and then starting all over again the next day. We had sought advice from books, websites and other parents, and while some of it was helpful, there was so much information it soon became confusing. I thought we had tried everything and started to believe that this was just the way he was. It was at this time that my husband was told about Karen and that she might be able to help us, which she did....Fast! The gentle techniques helped our son to sleep through the night for the first time in his life. It transformed our family and we were all happier and healthier for it, enjoying each day and not completely obsessed with sleep!

Sally and the Baby Sleep the Night programme have literally transformed our lives! Izzy was 11 months old and waking twice at night. I was feeding her back to sleep each time. I was due to go back to work in a month’s time and was wondering how on earth I would cope on so little sleep. Thankfully that is when we found Sally. We had an initial consultation and Sally really took time to understand Izzy’s routine and what she is like. Sally came up with a tailored plan for us and it was incredibly easy to implement. We just made some small tweaks to what we were already doing and the results were dramatic. We couldn’t believe that on night three of the programme Izzy slept through the night and has done every night since (two months and counting) despite starting Nursery and picking up several bugs.
Sally was on hand for questions along the way and was always very supportive and responsive. I can’t recommend Sally and the programme highly enough.
Thank you again......it really has had an incredible impact on our lives!

When I contacted Sally I had a nearly 3 year old that had never in his life slept through the night. He would take up to 40 minutes to get cuddle off to sleep after milk, wake during the night up to 4 times and always end up in our bed so I could have whatever sleep I could.
After meeting Sally I immediately felt positive that things could change, when explaining the current bedtime routine, I never felt judged that he was in our bed, or I was cuddling him off to sleep. Sally came up with a detailed plan how to change things, it was simple and straightforward and well explained. It was also adaptable to our family. After the first night of the new routine I was genuinely shocked how well it had worked. He had fallen asleep on his own without milk or a cuddle at a sensible time for the first time ever, when he woke in the night, the plan Sally had in place was followed and he settled each time in his bed alone.
A follow up call to see how things went and if I needed any extra support was always gratefully received. It was nice to have someone check in with us to make sure it was all going to plan. By day 4 he was going to bed alone, sleeping through and staying in his bed until the sleep clock signalled he could get up.
We are 3 weeks in and bedtime is now a pleasure to do. Sally has helped restore ‘normality’ back into our house. My little boy now gets 12 hours uninterrupted sleep, he isn't having as many tantrums and is generally a happier little boy to be around. I am also getting a nights sleep, I have more patience with everyone, we have our evenings back, along with our bed. Getting this help was as much for myself as it was for my little boy. I would highly recommend Sally to anyone.

I contacted Sally for help with our son’s sleep when he was 7 months old. After initially experiencing 4 ½ months of reasonable sleep Joe’s regular sleep patterns suddenly changed and he was often waking 5 or 6 times during the night breastfeeding each time, only falling asleep with feeding. It was exhausting for me and impacting negatively on our family life.
Sally was very thorough getting to know us as a family, Joe’s routine and his sleep associations. She drew up a detailed sleep plan that was unique to us and easy to follow. I was anxious at first, but Sally was able to put my mind at rest with her consistent support. I feel that we were given just the right balance of assistance and independence. She was quick to acknowledge our persistence and celebrate any progress made. Also, Sally was quick to adapt the plan when necessary following our feedback.
Within a few nights Joe was sleeping for longer stretches at night and waking less often, settling himself quickly. Before the end of the first week he was sleeping through the night. Now at 8 months Joe consistently settles himself to sleep independently at bedtime and for naps, sleeps for 12 hours and wakes happily. This has been a very positive experience for our family and so my husband and I would 100% recommend Sally to other parents with similar sleep dilemmas.

Sleep Secrets Package
Our children’s sleep can often feel like a complicated business. There are many books and websites on this subject and it can be confusing and overwhelming trying to make sense of it all!
This package is designed with you in mind. During your personal one to one call, I provide clear explanations of sleep biology and development. I can help you understand your child’s sleep needs and cues, so you can feel confident to make simple and gentle adjustments to support your whole family to sleep peacefully.
The sleep secrets package consists of a 60 minute video or telephone consultation, ideal for families looking to learn more about their child’s sleep needs and implement any changes themselves. During the call I will talk about the biology of sleep and the role of cortisol and melatonin in sleep cycles.This leads into how over- or under-tiredness can affect your child settling at night and for naps. I will discuss how to create a safe, soothing bedtime environment and bedtime routines, which will support your child’s settling at bedtime and encourage restful night-time sleep for you all.
You may have questions about specific issues such as short naps, frequent night wakes, sleep regressions or early waking. We can discuss possible causes and their solutions. If you would like an in-depth sleep analysis and sleep plan at this point, the one to one package is more suitable and you can upgrade if you wish.
Your sleep secrets package is available at the introductory price of £49for a limited time only and includes downloadable information sheets to support the advice provided during the call. Evening and Saturday calls are available.
