I remember plucking up the courage to venture out with my son to a baby group. Whilst I was expecting everyone to look as dishevelled as me and to smell of sick, all the other mums appeared to have it together and beam about how well their baby slept and how easy and wonderful motherhood was. I immediately felt the odd one out because my son did not sleep... Ever...
Not only did he not sleep anywhere other than in my arms, he was sick all day due to his reflux.
I felt like I was the only one who had a baby that didn’t sleep, and that there was something wrong with him. What I didn’t realize, at the time, was that those mothers weren’t being particularly honest about sleep and that there was such a stigma about babies and sleep. When I finally found someone to help with my son’s sleep it was a complete game changer, I finally started to enjoy motherhood! I couldn’t believe mothers were suffering with sleep deprivation and being judged on seeking help.
I became so passionate about sleep when I saw all of the benefits from a good night’s sleep, not just for my son, but as a family.
I have worked with families for 12 years who have experienced the worst effects of sleep deprivation, during sensitive times of their lives and in a vulnerable position. I can give you the confidence, and work with you supporting you to tackle sleep situations from new-borns to older children in beds.
Bedtimes don’t have to be a battle, and you don’t have to suffer on your own.
If you'd like to chat further then call or email me now, or book into my diary at the bottom of the page, for a completely free initial consultation where I can assure you there will be zero judgement of any of any of your parenting choices. Furthermore I can help you solve any issues you may have in the most gentle effective way possible and fast.

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.
