Sleep Support Consultation

I provide Email, Telephone , Video call & Face to Face Consultations
with issues concerning Sleep
Even though it is biologically normal for babies & young children to wake often during the night, parents understanding of how normal infant sleep develops, can contradict this, resulting in unclear or unrealistic expectations. Comments from others may worry parents & lead them to wrongly believe their child has a 'sleep problem'. Parents may question, 'Am I doing it right?' 'Is there something wrong with my baby?'
And then there is the parents sleep deprivation, which can have a major effect on parents physical & mental health, impacting on family life & relationships. Parents may search for bright ideas for getting a 'good night's sleep', or be tempted to try out the suggestions of family, friends, or well-wishers. But how do we know these ideas or suggestions are safe, that they won't affect our infant's health, or have long-term consequences?
My sleep support consultations help to balance the natural & normal needs of your child, the importance of being a response parent & reducing sleep deprivation for you without unnecessary & potentially harmful 'sleep training' methods.
Your can find more information on the latest research evidence about biologically normal sleep for babies
Sleep consultations are only suitable for older babies & young children. I practise Gentle Parenting Methods & follow the latest evidence based information for what is biologically normal & age appropriate for your child.
I do not endorse any methods that involve leaving your child to cry. My support puts the needs of your child first & involves a gradual process working with the family as a whole to get more sleep.
If you are looking for a fast solution or Sleep Training, this is not for you.
I offer an Initial FREE Consultation by Phone to discuss your issue & how I can support you.
