You aren´t alone! Did you know that 30% of babies have trouble sleeping? An incredible 75% of parents want to change the sleeping habits of their children, and studies show that if you don´t establish good sleeping habits early on, the problems can last up to five years: it´s recently been discovered that irregular sleeping patterns in children can even last into adulthood.
It´s your responsibility as a parent to understand the needs of your child and find ways to help them sleep well. Babies don´t come with a manual to teach you how to create good sleeping habits from day one! So that´s the role I play when working with families, I teach you how to lay the foundations to a lifetime of great sleep for your child (and in turn, for you, the parent!).
When my daughter Maya was born, she was a horrible sleeper. I suffered from anxiety and sleep deprivation for months. I found the situation exhausting and with all the masses of information and contradictory advice. I was driving myself crazy looking for a solution and getting more and more confused. All I really wanted was a plan that worked and someone to tell me what to do. So, I hired a sleep consultant and my whole family´s life changed for the better.
I have a background in nursing and teaching and I’m fortunate that I can combine these two passions alongside the sleep training and make a positive difference in people´s lives.
Having successfully worked with hundreds of families around the world I can guarantee that working with me will see a huge improvement in your current sleeping habits. Through our journey together you will also learn about your child´s sleep need/sleep cycles, age appropriate routines, early childhood brain development and much more.
I would love the opportunity to work with you to restore calm and harmony to your home. Because it IS possible to be a parent and sleep well too!
Sleep is the golden chain that ties health and our bodies together.

Sleep is vital for all of us but essential to a child´s growth and development. Children who get enough sleep are more likely to function better and are less prone to behavioral problems and moodiness. That is why it is important for parents to start early and help their children develop good sleeping habits.
I truly believe that it is possible to be a parent and sleep well too. As a mum, I have walked in your shoes. I understand the concerns you may have for your childs´ well-being. Therefore, my commitment to you and your family is to work with you in a respectful and caring way. Making the process straightforward and bringing balance and harmony back into your family life.
My approach to improving your child´s sleep is simple:
- I´ll create a bespoke, easy to follow, step by step plan.
- I´ll give you the critical knowledge necessary to effectively manage your child´s sleep cycles, awake times, nap schedules and sleeping skills.
- I´ll help you understand what are realistic expectations depending on your child´s age. It´s unlikely that your child will sleep 12 hours straight on the first night, although it does happen!
- As a professional, experienced child sleep expert, my role is to bring calm and clarity to the process as we embark on the journey together.
