Does your child wake a lot overnight?
Do you want to stop feeding or rocking your child to sleep?
Is naptime and bedtime a battle?
Is your child waking before 6 am every morning?
Are you finding it hard to cope?
Tiredness is one of the most challenging parts of being a parent, looking after a little one can be exhausting. Especially if your child doesn’t sleep! Being a mother of 2 young children myself I can empathise with the stress and anxiety that comes with having a disrupted sleep routine for a long time.
My son didn’t sleep for longer than a few minutes to half an hour at a time for the first 5 months, I found it mentally challenging and I worried that not only was he unnecessarily unhappy and grumpy a lot of the time, but that his development would be affected as his sleep was so poor.
In those long lonely hours overnight I read and read and read about baby sleep and the science behind it. The more I understood, the more I was able to find ways to help him to sleep better, for longer, and we were both happier for it. I since qualified as a Sleep Coach and am here to offer you friendly, non-judgemental advice that will change how you feel, how your little one sleeps and honestly change your life.
I take a holistic, solution focused, family centred approach. I look at the whole picture and will work with you to come up with sleep strategies that will work for you and your own parenting style.
I believe that it is possible to optimise sleep whilst still being a responsive and gentle parent, with strategies that will always put the needs of your child first. I do not advocate controlled crying or cry it out techniques, nor will I suggest that you try any techniques that you are not comfortable with.
Not in the traditional sense, if anything I educate you to understand the science of sleep, rather than trying to ‘train’ your child.
My goal is for you to gain a proper understanding of sleep and your child’s individual sleep personality so that you are able to adapt your approach as your child gets older.
I take time to listen to you and the challenges you are currently experiencing and get to really understand your goals. I will then put a bespoke plan together for you and also give you as much support as you need in putting it into practice.
