Parents who work with me are
The good news is that is doesn't need to be that way!
What can you expect
I make no empty promises of quick fixes or sleeping though the night, but will work with you to get your child to their place of great with sleep.
Why choose me
While I am a mother who has experienced first had the exhaustion with lack of a sleeping baby I am also a regulated professional working with children.
Where it all began
I am married to Graham and have two kids, Hannah (12) and Reuben (9) we live in a small village near Dunfermline in Fife, Scotland.
I was having horrendous sleep issues with Reuben and was suffering from PND and felt out of control, unable to parent the way I dreamed of, I couldn't understand why my son WOULDN'T sleep, I spent hours every day pounding the streets with him in a sling or pram to try and give him some rest, he was a miserable baby - turns out he had food allergies, cows milk protein allergy (CMPA) was the main issue for him.
I read lots of books, which at the time were too complicated in my exhausted mind, eventually I got professional help, this totally changed my life and in such a short time.
I am now happily working as a child sleep coach - I pride myself on having studied well over 200 hours specific to sleep and offer a variety of approaches based on a wide range of degree level and accredited training in infant care, my most recent being accredited at Level 6 with OCN London as a Holistic Sleep Coach. My approach takes into account your unique family values and circumstances - which even the best DIY package or book can't.
I remember the feeling of utter disbelief on the first night of sleep changes I made with my son.
We made the suggested changes and he slept from 7:30 pm to 5:30 am AMAZING for what we had been experiencing.
I even took 3-months additional maternity leave so I could spend more time with my son, I felt like I missed out on so much up until that point.
Once I returned to work, I was telling everyone who would listen about my sleep discovery and what I had learnt, I would light up telling other parents my tips and was always referring onto the sleep coach who helped me - but she was in the states!
The time came when I thought, you know what, I want to professionally help parents, so I decided to train and qualify to do exactly that.
