Stephanie Joyce
Hello! I’m Steph. I’m passionate about little ones and seeing them thrive. Thank you for stopping by my page, and I am SO excited to work with you and your family!


The quote written by Leo J. Burke, which says that “people who say that they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one”. For a very long time, we found ourselves tip toeing around the house, while my daughter napped and slept, doing everything to try not wake her. Before you have a child, you read books about them, and then you have them and suddenly realise there isn’t a manual for how they work …


I am a mum of one child, with a background in psychology (BSc Hon) and Early Years teaching. When my little one was born, my husband and I were petrified at what the affects of sleep deprivation was going to be like on our household and relationship. We spent the first 15 months of our daughters life adamant that we were not going to have a bad sleeper, so we bought an app, and studied it and tried our very best to understand all that it was saying about sleep training. We did the sleep training from the app, but we found it so complicated that none of us reaped the benefits of a full nights sleep. We put so much of our time and energy into doing this. However, we more often than not were left feeling confused as to what her sleep needs were, and when to change things as her needs changed. It felt like her sleep needs changed every day. Every conversation, and all our time was spent trying to get her to sleep, keep her asleep or trying to get her back to sleep. It was exhausting!


I then consulted with a sleep consultant, who took the time to explain what my daughters sleep needs were, answered the questions that I had, and explained to us what the exact steps of how to do the sleep training were. Within the 10 days I began to see results, and we were for the first time genuinely getting full nights of sleep.


456 days of trying to figure it out ourselves versus 10 days of working with a sleep consultant…


But it really was the BEST feeling knowing my little one was getting a full nights sleep.


She learnt how to be an independent sleeper, which is a skill for life, and it’s changed our life for the better.


I still think it’s unbelievable the difference that just a few simple changes made. There is something very special about having everything explained to you, it takes all the guess work out, which when we were sleep deprived is exactly what we needed!


Sleep is no longer an issue for us, we just get on with our lives. My husband and I have our evenings back, and our nights back. I am no longer an anxious mum. I am able to enjoy being a mum to my little girl everyday because I am no longer sleep deprived. My little one is also reaping the benefits of more sleep, so she not only is calmer and happier within herself, but her appetite is consistent and healthy because she isn’t tired all the time.

"Stephanie has been amazing for us and came up with a great plan after our first call, that we have followed to a T. 
She was so supportive through our 2 weeks and after and touched base every day with different ideas. 

We are an extremely busy house hold with 3 kids and both working full time, but she worked around this and answered any questions we had at any time.
Jamie went from waking every 2 hours, taking a while to settle while us sitting in the room with him, to sleeping through the night a few nights in a row. We have now come out of the room and Jamie can settle himself to sleep. The progress has been brilliant. We still have a bit to go, but definitely so much better since getting Stephanie.
Thank you again for all the help, we wouldn’t have done it without you that’s for sure."
Ciara and Ian, parents to Jamie 2 years 10 months

I highly recommend Stephanie's sleep support. She first helped us in November, but due to family holidays, constant illness, and unbalanced naps in the crèche, early wakeups and some bad habits started to creep in. Stephanie tried several different nap and bedtimes/nap duration etc until she found a suitable solution for our 19 months old son. Stephanie is professional, understanding, and supportive. Our son sleeps through the night again, his naps in crèche have become longer, and his appetite and mood have improved. We are very thankful for all help, advice and support. She is a life saver.  Thank you so much. 


Milka and Pawel, parents to Viktor 19 months old.


"Stephanie was a great help for us, to help our 14 month old son sleep better. Before Stephanie, he used to wake up every 4-5 hours, either needing to be rocked or needing a bottle to go back to sleep. Sleep training really helped us all and we can't thank Stephanie enough for that. Now every one of us is getting good sleep and rest. I wish we had done this sooner."
- Saurabh and Ruchika, parents to 14 month old Kiyansh
"I recommend Steph to help with your little one's sleep for any parent.

We’ve been using Steph’s advice since Bonnie was approx 4 months old and consulted Steph again when Bonnie was 7 months to keep up with the ever changing develops of a baby.

Each time I feel as though we have the tools to help our baby get better sleep and and know what might be happening during the times when naps or bedtimes don’t go to plan.

As a first time parent, it’s reassuring and fundamental to understand how babies sleep.

We’ve seen the benefits of how better sleep leads to a happier baby and family."

- Christina and Matt, parent's to Bonnie 7 months old
"Since our son Logan was born, me and Michael have not had more than 3h uninterrupted sleep. That was 6 months and 1 week! The 3h stretches may have happened 10 times during this period. Day time naps were all contact naps, breastfeeding to sleep and sleep in my arms. Since Logan was born, we tried every time to put him down to sleep but nothing we tried worked.
After speaking to our friends who worked with Steph before, we decided (reluctantly I must add) to try it ourselves. I was very skeptical, not about Steph's ability but because I didn't believe in miracles and I had kinda gave in to the thought that we wouldn't get another decent night sleep for years.
Both me and my husband loved the contact naps, no doubt, we love spending time with our son but the sleep deprivation was getting out of hand and I was loosing focus during normal day to day activities.
We decided to give this 100% and see how it would go.
We were not willing to do cry it out and Stephanie reassured us and made sure we were comfortable with the plan.
First night was tough, 50 min of on and off cry but.. then the magic happened, the first time ever that Logan slept for over 10h, in his own bed, in his own room.
From there, we had a couple days where he was fighting naps but nights went amazing, only 1 wake a few of the nights but never needed to go in for comfort.
Our lives have changed so much, now me and my husband are able to have dinner together at the same time, watch a movie or spend some time dedicating it to our hobbies while Logan gets his much needed rest.
We are so grateful to Stephanie for all of her help throughout these two weeks. She is a wonderful person and we are so happy we picked her to help us with Logan's sleep.
After starting, Steph has helped us throughout each day to troubleshoot naps and tweak when needed.
Thank you so much for supporting us and putting up with some emotional times when we thought we couldn't do it.
If you are having issues with your little ones sleep, we recommend Stephanie with our whole heart."
- Catalina and Michael, parent's of logan 6 months old
"I couldn't recommend Stephanie Joyce more highly.
We were struggling with our 15 months old son's sleep for some time now. We were taking advices from other experienced parents, sleep training books and websites but nothing worked. Our son Viktor was up every 2-3 hours during the night, his naps were all over the place,  and we couldn't figure out, where we made a mistake.  
Stephanie was really involved and supportive since day 1. She was available to answer our questions 24/7 during our 3 weeks sleep journey. She has showed us that Viktor is capable of falling asleep on his own , without our constant presence and that he is able to sleep through without a soother. Stephanie definitely improved quality of his sleep and also our family life.
We are so glad that we have found Stephanie and we've reached for help. It was the best decision we ever made."
Milka and Pawel, parents of 13-month-old Viktor
"Stephanie was a great help with my 8 year old. With help of her detailed sleep plan, my daughter now sleeps uninterrupted through the night in her room. I would definitely recommend Stephanie's service."
Preeti and Supreed, mom to Myra age 8
"We would absolutely recommend working with Stephanie to friends or to anyone who is struggling with their little one's sleep.
Since working together our little one now settles herself to sleep and sleeps from 7pm-7am. Our nearly 3 year old used to wake multiple times per night and we saw a huge improvement in a matter of days! We now also have a great bedtime routine which really helps our little one to wind down and get ready for bedtime. 
Stephanie helped us to try various routines until we found the one which worked best for our little one. She was able to give great practical advice and she was also extremely compassionate and supportive. Thank you so much Stephanie!"
 Shauna and Eoin, mom to almost 3 year old Georgia
"As others have said …Steph is a life saver! 
We desperately needed help with Theo (2.5yrs) who had got into some really really bad habits and everything was a battle.
We started  the 2 week programme…and were amazed how quickly we started to see results! Steph was great, very engaged and communicative, offering support, advice and recommendations. Sleep really shouldn’t be underestimated!! It affects the whole family! We are now equipped to manage our stubborn 2 year old…and have our evenings back! Hurray! 
He goes to sleep seamlessly and sleeps the night!
Thankyou Steph!! 
Sign up…you won’t regret it!"
Tor, mom to Theo (2.5 years old)
"Working with Steph was completely transformative overnight.
Our little girl Lily (7 months) used to self-settle well and go to sleep independently but when I left her overnight once she had a bout of separation anxiety and rejected the cot. I ended up feeding her to sleep and having her sleep on me most nights breastfeeding as every time I put her down, she would wake up, sometimes even after 15 minutes!!! One time she woke 5 times before 9pm.
The first night on the sleep programme was hard with Lily not liking the change and multiple wakes but to my amazement on night 2 Lily slept through the whole night! Considering she was still feeding at night before; I genuinely thought it was a miracle. But Lily continued to thrive throughout the programme and has continued to do so after, she’s able to put herself back to sleep when waking at night - even when her teeth are popping through. She has two 90 minute naps and absolutely LOVES her sleep.
Steph was incredible throughout, checking in all the time,  tweaking the naps for us and helping Lily adapt to 2 naps instead of 3.
I now have TIME during her naps and in the evening to do housework / work / and spend time with my partner and the best thing I get to do is SLEEP myself!!! 
Thank you, Steph, for everything, we absolutely loved working with you!!
Lucy, mom of Lily (7 months old)"
"Stephanie is a life saver. After going through the 4-month regression my LO was waking up every 1-2 hours during the night, and we couldn’t get him to nap well during the day as well. I was completely sleep deprived and desperate! I saw Stephanie’s post on Facebook during one of these night wakes and saved a screenshot of it. A few days later, I ended up reaching out to her on messenger at 5 am out of sheer desperation. We had our first consultation where she noted our current routine and discussed various options with respect to sleep routine and schedule to determine what suits us best.
In a week, I managed to have a baby sleep for around 11 hours every night! We have needed to do some minor tweaking to suit his sleep pattern (7:00 am to 6:00 am). Our baby can self soothe when waking up at nights and we are in a much better place than when we started. It took me a while to transition and it was really hard at some moments, but I am so happy that I persisted because my son is sleeping much better at night and during the daytime.
One of the best parts about the program was the workarounds that Stephanie would suggest based on how the day is going, making note of what is working, what is not working, always looking for alternate methods if something was not falling in place. I really appreciate Stephanie’s dedication to the child and the program as well in terms of her availability and follow ups too. I would often joke with her that she might be losing her sleep over my son’s sleep.
I have now turned into that nutty person who raves on about this program and advises everyone with a baby to get it. I feel like I have my sanity back and I can be the calm, supportive mum that I want to be for my baby.
I would like to pass my big thanks to Stephanie for all her immense help and kind support. The way she guided us made things soooo much clearer and more manageable. It has really improved me and my baby's sleep and daily schedule. Wish I had found out about Stephanie sooner, it’s been absolutely life changing."
Ruchi and Amit, parents to Riaan (10 months old)
"Life changing!!!
We went to Stephanie about our 3rd child waking every hour during the night after only 3 hrs sleep. We thought we knew everything from our other 2 children, We had tried everything, even another sleep consultant, but nothing clicked. We were hesitant to try another sleep consultant, which was our first mistake. Stephanie just made everything so clear to us and made the whole process click together. From the first meeting I had confidence in the process. We can’t thank Stephanie enough, all of the family’s lives have changed for the better. 
If you're struggling in any way with your child’s sleep, get in touch with her ASAP, you won’t look back!!!
Thank you, Stephanie!!!"
Ian and Ciara Mc Gowan, parents of 2-year old Jamie 
"Stephanie is nothing short of a miracle worker, we have spent nearly three years hoping things would get better with sleep to no avail. We were absolutely exhausted so we decided to seek help.
We really wanted something gentle to help with sleep but equally structured and that is what we got. We had a detailed consultation then regular check ins and a spreadsheet to fill in daily. Stephanie is kind, friendly and on hand to support. She offers gentle tips and advice.
If you are contemplating seeking help, then I couldn’t recommend it more. Not only are we more rested but our toddler is happier and we are able to recharge.
Thanks so much Stephanie!"
 - Charlini, Andy and Elijah (2 years and 7 months old)
I'd highly recommend Stephanie to any parent wanting a better routine and night sleep for both them and their baby! Our wee girl was a cat napper during the day from birth and up frequently during the night too. She refused to sleep in her cot during the day too. 
By the time we got to 7 months we needed sleep! 
Stephanie helped us create a simple cot sleep routine that worked for baby and us and coached us through methods to get our daughter falling back asleep herself during the night. It took a bit of time but consistency and knowing Stephanie was always available to ask advice really helped! Our wee girl now naps well during the day in her cot mostly and sleeps through until 6am (approx.) most nights . 
Just knowing what to do when she has an unsettled night has given me confidence too in knowing I can deal with whatever comes up .
A huge thank you to Steph from our family!
Cheryl, mom to 7-month-old Zoe
"Our daughter Lily has always struggled with falling asleep and with constant waking during the night so by the time we reached out to Stephanie when she was 21 months, we were desperate but also incredibly cynical that anything could get Lily to sleep through.

I am pleased to say that following the sleep plan Stephanie provided us with, as well as her guidance along the way, proved to be invaluable and Lily is now sleeping through and napping in her own cot during the day without needing any external support to do so.

We feel like a new family because of Stephanie’s plan and how quickly Lily adapted to the changes and new routine that was implemented. We’re refreshed, we have our evenings back without the threat of a bedtime that isn’t happening and our daughter is much more content now that she is sleeping better.

A huge thank you to Stephanie from our family!"
Mum to Lily, 21 months
"From the age of 3 months old Lilly had been a terrible sleeper. Waking up 3 or 4 times a night was very common and could even go to 5 or 6 wakings a night. By the age of 22 months we had just had a 3rd baby and Lilly was still waking 3 or 4 times a night with our only means of getting her back to sleep was by giving her baby bottles of water. This situation was so stressful, frustrating and unsustainable for the whole house. At the time all 3 of our children were just under 4 years of age. We needed something to change.

We had seen a positive review for Stephanie's sleep training method from a close neighbour of ours and decided that we would give it a try. We had little hope that any form of sleep training would work but nonetheless went into this with our eyes wide open. We started sleep training with Lilly when our new baby was just a few weeks old. Tony took the lead with Lilly's training while Mom nursed the new baby. By closely following the training plan given and following the instructions from Stephanie over the phone and by email we quickly found the plan working to our amazement. The results were unbelievable and beyond our wildest expectations. 
Now after just 3 weeks Lilly sleeps through the night, without any assistance whatsoever and also naps during the day perfectly. She knows she is safe in her cot and is now able to get herself back to sleep if she wakes during the night. She has always been a very happy child by day and this has continued while she now gets quality sleep at night and all this while helping everyone around her to also get through the night without having to run to her room in the middle of the night.

I would highly recommend Stephanie who is very understanding and hugely helpful, giving specific instructions throughout the training period. The plan provided is very easy to follow and is great to give parents confidence and to give clear direction on how to approach getting ready for every nap and bedtime as well as how to deal with any 'bumps in the road'. If any parent is struggling with the child's sleep I would direct them straight to Stephanie Joyce. They won't regret it, it will change their family's lives for the better."

Tony & Lucy O'Neill, and 22 month old Lilly
Being accountable to someone was the only thing that worked for us in sleep training our little one. In the darkness of the night, knowing Stephanie would call us the next day to see how it went, kept me from just bringing our baby into our bed as I usually would. We could never have done it alone! We kept it gentle but followed Stephanie's advice and day by day my daughter's sleep improved until voila she slept through the night. Stephanie was so lovely and calm and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend her!
Adi (11.5 month old) 
We would definitely recommend Stephanie for sleep solutions. As time went on we didn’t even realise the bad habits that we had let creep in for ourselves and Rosie. Stephanie arranged a consultation and was never judgmental. She provided us with an easy to follow plan which was very achievable. Rosie has come a long way in the last number of weeks and has adapted to a lot of changes. So have we! :-) We can’t thank Stephanie enough for giving us not only her guidance and support but the courage to make the changes. We don’t know ourselves and Rosie is thriving - sleeping in her own room, in her own cot and through the night!
Keith, Lorna and Rosie - 18 months 

When I embarked on this sleep training journey with Stephanie I'll admit I was nervous, for what I have no idea. 

Stephanie was always so helpful and always there to answer any questions I had. 

She was always on hand to advise me in the right way possible. My son and I have never slept better and that's all down to the methodical navigation Stephanie has provided us.  

I would highly recommend to ANY parents struggling with their little ones sleep!

Vicky (23 months old)

I found Stephanie on Facebook and decided to give sleep training another go. We had tried ourselves and failed multiple times before. My three year old was waking up multiple times a night and needed a bottle to get back asleep. Stephanie set out a plan for us to follow. The first few nights were the hardest but since night 10 our daughter has slept all night. We are delighted with how well it all went and so thankful for all Stephanie's help and advice. We can't believe that we are all getting a full night's sleep now.

Niamh (3 years old)

After nearly 7 months of no sleep in our house, we had reached rock bottom. We had tried various sleep techniques and approaches and nothing had really worked. We started working with Stephanie and she highlighted inconsistencies in our approach and gave us tips, guidance and a 10 day plan to implement.  


The first night our daughter slept the best she had in her life! Over the 10 day plan, there were one or two hiccoughs which made us worry that this wasn’t going to work, but three weeks on since the plan and she’s sleeping through every single night, I’m almost scared to say those words aloud! We would definitely recommend using Stephanie to help with your little ones sleep troubles – we have not slept like this in over 20 months! It’s a cliché, but our only regret is not seeking her help sooner!

Alex (19 month old)

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 15 minutes.

  • Two follow-up emails 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 .

The total cost for the New-born – Get it right from the Start Package is £125

The Refresher

This option is for parents who have met with me in the past, but are looking for a ‘refresher’.
