About Me

I am a holistic sleep coach and founder of Help Baby Sleep. I work with families to create the optimal environment and setting for sleep. I feel passionately about helping parents get the rest and downtime that they so desperately need when they have young children to look after.

I am a mum to two young children and have first-hand experience of implementing many of my holistic and gentle techniques with them to help improve sleep for all the family.

Having helped hundreds of families, I strongly believe that parents hold the key to their baby’s needs. Often, they may not have the confidence and the faith in themselves to meet these needs and this is where I come in.

Approach

Using my extensive knowledge of sleep science and what is developmentally appropriate for your baby, I help identify patterns, behaviours and external factors that may be contributing to baby sleep problems.

 

I will then work with you to develop a tailored plan including practical tools and techniques focused on improving sleep routines for your baby which will benefit the whole family.

As I work holistically, my approach is very gentle and supportive of the child. It is based on supporting the child to learn to sleep on their own whilst respecting their developmental needs and without using any methods involving “controlled crying” or “rapid return”.

Very rarely is there only one reason why your little one won’t sleep which is why I always endeavour to find a bespoke plan for you and your family that takes into consideration the fact your little one’s needs are not only physical but also psychological, emotional and relational.

Expertise

I have trained extensively with both the MNT, the International Maternity & Parenting Institute and most recently with the Holistic Sleep Coaching Programme. I have also spent several years working as a nanny. I am a member of the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants and The Association of Birth and Baby Professionals. 

 

My client testimonials demonstrate my experience and my dedication to helping the families I work with. If you would like to see more feedback, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
