When my eldest was 6 months old I was at my witts end; I found parenting overwhelming – my dreams of holding my bundle of love with clean hair and a loving smile were not a reality. I was shattered. She cried, she didn’t eat well and, you’ve guessed it, she did NOT sleep. Something had to change. I got in contact with Baby Sleep the Night and my life changed. Not only did I have someone to guide me through the process and make small changes to what I was doing (I had read ALL the books!), I had a voice of reason and confidence. I felt empowered. I had the support and guidance of someone with experience telling me what to do and how to do it exactly right. It changed my life.

We still say nearly 4 years on that it was the best money we ever spent. My life as a mum soon changed back into those lovely walks, play dates, clean hair and a smile that I meant. I LOVE being a mum (of a child that sleeps I should add!!).

So it wasn’t long until my son graced us 21 months later. He didn’t have the easiest start to life, struggling with illness and hospital visits but I had a foundation of sleep knowledge to start the slow, gentle and simple steps towards helping him to become an independent sleeper. With his health issues, I knew he needed to learn the skills of sleep to help him recover from his illnesses. By implementing these steps, he never needed the formal sleep training that his sister did (see my Newborn Sleep Package).

When I was approached and then hand-picked to be a Child Sleep Consultant by Baby Sleep the Night, I didn’t hesitate. My BSc in Psychology, with majors in Child Psychology, fueled my fascination about the behaviour and growth of children and what can affect them both positively and negatively. This led into a career as a Primary School Teacher which continued to develop my knowledge of children and how they learn. I love being able to positively impact on a child’s life and giving them life long lessons.

Children and sleep are my passions; let me help you! I offer friendly, comprehensive and responsive support and will empower you to become the master of your child’s sleep – you won’t look back!

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.

After 3 months you can purchase another week of email support at any time should you need it .

Eat, Sleep & Dream
A package for new mums, first time mums, anytime mums and exhausted mums.

Being a mum is brilliant; it’s the best and most rewarding job I’ve ever had but it’s also easy to feel like you’ve lost your way and got into bad habits. Whether with sleep, eating habits, behaviour or a mixture of all of these, and, especially when sleep deprived, these habits can be hard to break and can even get in the way of your enjoyment of being a mum. This package is for you!

I’m offering clear, friendly and responsive advice based on you and your family. I’ll be there to guide you each step of the way with sleep training as a primary focus, plus support with positive behaviour reinforcement and strategies, using my expertise of 12 years as a teacher in which I have also taught children the importance of healthy eating and activity as part of the personal, social and health curriculum. I also offer this expertise through advise on developing healthy eating plans and planning fun activities and daily routines. I have a BSc in Psychology, majoring in Child Psychology, and a PGCE teaching qualification, plus the experience of having my own two lively children, therefore I have the qualifications and skills to help you! This is a whole mum package – get your sanity back!

Included in this package:

  • An initial 15 minute phone consultation where we will discuss your child, their sleep, their eating and their behaviour and we can discuss the package together.

  • A comprehensive sleep, eating and behaviour questionnaire where you detail all aspects of your child’s sleep, routines, naps, family life, behaviour (positive and negative) and eating habits and other factors which may be affecting them.

  • Creation of a bespoke plan based on your child, their specific needs and your family situation, as well as your preferences as a parent.

  • A 2 hour Skype, Facetime, Face-to-Face* or phone call to further discuss your child based on the questionnaire, an opportunity for you to ask any questions and where I will explain your programme in detail.

  • Follow up phone call support; six 15 minute follow up consultations. The first will be after Night One of the plan as this is where there tends to be most to discuss. We can discuss what went well, what developments may be needed for Night Two (if any) and make any adaptations (if needed). We can also discuss their eating and general behaviour plans. I’ll effectively be your sounding board to offer a listening ear, sound advice and a system of support.

  • A week of emails will follow our last phone call; six emails of further support to secure all aspects of your child’s sleep, eating and behaviour.

  • Following these initial two weeks, a month of a weekly check in – either over phone or email - to keep things on track and offer further support.

‘Phillippa is actually magic!

My daughter has NEVER been a good sleeper and I had tried almost everything by her first birthday so when my friend said to try contacting Phillippa I thought well this won’t work but may as well tick the box before I give up. I was so wrong!

Within the first 3 nights we saw a difference! And when Chloe slept through for the first time ever on night 5 I thought this wont last its just a coincidence! But here we are over a month after our sleep training and Chloe actually likes Bed time (now one of my favourite times of day with her as opposed to the battle we used to have) and naps better in the day than ever before! Phillippa was very understanding and listened to all of my concerns before we started.

I would go as far as to say Phillippa has saved my marriage as before this bedtime was a 3 hour battle and we ended up with no time for ourselves or each other now my husband and I actually get some time together!’

Jenny, Accountant, mum of 9 month old Chloe, Guildford. 


“Hey Phillippa. Just wanted to drop you a message to tell you how grateful we are to have our lives (and sleep!!) back. Two weeks ago today we started working with you for our son Oscar. Oscar had nearly woken every hour, of every night for three months. It had really started to take its toll on us and we knew we needed to make some drastic changes.
With your support, enthusiasm and guidance we have made massive progress in just 2 weeks and have now had 5 nights solid sleep 7pm-6am. The first week was  tough and emotional for all of us but it has really paid off. Thanks so much for your professionalism and always reminding us how important sleep is to Oscar when it was difficult. “

Thanks again, Harriet & Richard, parents to 6 month old Oscar.

“I cannot thank or recommend Philippa enough! With her gentle approach to sleep training, and her dedication and support throughout the process, our baby Leo is finally sleeping through and napping better than I could ever have thought possible just a few weeks ago.
Philippa always offered a bespoke response depending on how Leo was reacting/ adapting to all the changes and it was reassuring that a generic approach wasn’t just being applied.

After six months of sleep deprivation, it feels like a miracle and we are all so much happier as a family! Thank you again!” 

Danielle, mum of 6 month old Leo.

I just wanted to drop you a short note to say thank you so much! It has been over a month since we started our sleep journey with you and the sleep our entire family is getting has improved dramatically.

If you remember my nine month old was being breastfed and rocked to sleep, would wake in the night and was not napping well during the day.
Since we went through the programme with you she now calmly goes to sleep on her own in her crib, sleeps through the night and is much better at getting her naps during the day.
It goes without saying that all of us in the house are getting a lot more quality sleep and are seeing the benefits but what really surprised me were the unexpected gains. Jo is more interested in solid foods and my husband is able to take over sleep time routines so I can go out to the gym. In fact I am so confident of her improved skills in eating and sleeping, I have booked a three day trip to New York with my best friend, something that i would never have thought of a month ago. 

I could not have done it without your clear guidance and support. Even when things felt very tough you were empathetic but firm which encouraged me to persevere.

I will think of you at the top of the Empire State building!

Natalie, mum of 9 month old Jo, Hampshire

“If you are looking for some help with your baby’s sleep I would highly recommend Philly. She was amazing!

Her calm and gentle approach to sleep training has enabled my little boy to sleep through the night every night. I wish I had found her sooner when he was waking hourly! She was supportive and understanding throughout the process and made a  bespoke plan specific to my child that was adapted during the program.

Not only did she manage to get my baby sleeping well, she also helped with a nap routine and removing the bottles and dummies.

I would highly recommend Philly and her sleep training to anyone! Thank you again.” 

Vicki, teacher, Basingstoke mum of 18 month old Arthur

“Thank you so much for all your support and energy.

I am so glad we undertook this process - it has really given me the structure and tools to help my daughter sleep well and my family life is almost unrecognisable. She is more interested in solids and is getting so many more hours of sleep than before. Thank you.”

Natalie, mum of 9 month old.

“I really cannot recommend Philly enough.

Her gentle, personalised approach was perfect for our family. I am amazed at the impact the changes to our routine have had on my daughter’s sleep and her mood, and, in turn, my wellbeing! It was so beneficial having regular contact with Philly who offered reassurance and advice, all with a very positive attitude. She also adapted the plan as we went along in response to my little girl’s needs.

My only regret is not starting sooner! Thank you so much Philly!”

Hayley, Teacher and mum of 6 month old Olivia from Basingstoke
