One-to-One 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 Skype/FaceTime or telephone, 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 sleep plan, that I will prepare for you after the conclusion of our meeting.

  • Four 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.

The total cost for the One-to-One Sleep Solutions package for a baby or toddler in a cot is £245 Special Offer £130! by Skype/Facetime/Phone. If your child is in a bed this package is £265  Now £150! due to the complexity of the plan. 

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Bournemouth (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 15 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 .

The total cost for the New-born – Get it right from the Start Package is £125 £80 Special Offer!!  By Skype/Facetime/Phone

Face to face consultations are available within a 30 minute driving radius of Bournemouth (further distances can be accommodated – please call for details)
The Refresher
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 phone or by Skype, 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.

  • Optional 2x follow-up emails 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.

The total cost for the Refresher Package 60 minute consultation is £95, with 2x optional emails £125

Before sleep training we were really nervous about doing it with our twins and in the end with Emma's help she gave us a huge amount of confidence and ensured that we got to that awesome stage of having a full night sleep.

Our twins were so much happier in the day too - everyone benefited!

We cannot stress the importance of being able to talk to someone directly rather than trying to just read some kind of material to do this training.
It's the best way to answer any of those small questions you have in the back your mind and crucially allay any fears. Thanks Emma!

Kieran & Claire – parents to 8-month-old twins Ava & Isla.

We are so thankful to Emma for the sleep plan she put together for us and the support in implementing it, I had a few wobbles along the way and Emma was there to reassure and keep us on track.  
Our son has gone from waking up every couple of hours and being fed to sleep to now settling himself and sleeping through the night!
We now have our evenings back to spend time with our older son and not so constantly exhausted, so much more energy and enjoying time with both boys.  

Thank you, Emma, we will be forever grateful. Thank you for giving us the confidence to follow the plan and reap the benefits. 

Helen – Mother of 11-month-old Arlo

After hearing about Emma's work through a friend, we thought we would give her a try.

Our baby boy was almost 10 months old and had never slept the whole night through. It would take over an hour to get him to sleep every night. He would then wake up crying around 4 times per night and it was a nightmare getting him back to sleep again!

We had an initial consultation with Emma and were really impressed. She took note of our usual bedtime routine and then wrote out a new bespoke bedtime routine for our boy. It was planned over 2 weeks, where Emma could make adjustments if necessary. 

On the first night it took him a while to fall asleep, but for the first time ever he slept the whole night through. We couldn't believe it! As the nights went on, he was falling asleep much faster and still continued to sleep the whole night. His daytime naps are also brilliant now too, giving us our much-needed rest. 

It has now been around 5 weeks and we now have a baby who can fall asleep within 4 or 5 minutes every night and sleep for a full 12 hours. 

We would highly recommend Emma if your child is difficult at bedtime, she has been absolutely brilliant.


James & Margorie – parents of 10-month-old Joshua.



I became mum of triplets and I already had a 5-year-old son. My husband and I had never ever used control crying to our older son and we both were very against this method. We couldn't understand how parents could leave the baby when they are crying.

When the triplets were 8 months old, I started looking for a help. I breast feed them until they all fell-asleep and I put them to bed between 7-8 pm. I was not able to spend time with my eldest Son.

Unfortunately, they woke up one another after 30 minutes. I didn't mind them waking up after 10 pm but I was so angry, tired and sad when they did it before. I wanted to spend some time with my Son, and I couldn't. I found Emma on Facebook and explained to her my feelings. I just wanted them to go to bed at 7 so from that time I could be with my Son and eat with him, bath him and read the story :).

I told Emma that I don't believe this method and I will not stand my babies cry. Emma was so nice and kind. She has so much patience. She explained everything to me and sent me some paper work I could read. Emma promised me that from 7 o'clock I would be with my son and even better triplets would sleep from 7pm to 7am.

AND YOU KNOW WHAT??? IT HAPPENED. :)))) My babies sleep from 7 pm to 7 am. Sometimes initially they woke up around 6am but they went back to sleep again. This method is amazing. It's really works. I do strongly recommend Emma to every single parent! Our children are still happy, smile a lot and are happy to see us after nap or night sleep. Emma is very helpful, and she gently gives explanations and gives you psychological support which I needed the most.
