48 HOUR INTENSIVE SLEEP COACHING: Two days and two nights sleep programme designed specifically for you and your child. I have been providing this successful system for 20 years. By supporting you and your family on a 1 to 1 basis throughout the first days of sleep coaching, I can fully assess the problems that may have developed. Get to know your baby or child and understand their unique character. I will then work with you to put together a gently structured plan that will not only fit your baby or child, but with the whole family. I will do an initial evaluation of your baby/toddler/child sleep problems. This will be done via Telephone or FaceTime/Skype  video call.

During this assessment we will cover everything that may have contributed to the sleep problem developing. Birth trauma, preterm, breast feeding issues, reflux and other baby difficulties can all influence how babies learn to settle. I will ask you what you wish to achieve from the coaching, such as baby dropping night feeds (age appropriate), baby to learn self-settling, better all round routine, toddler routines and bedtimes, moving from cot to bed, stay in bed coaching for older toddlers or children, moving baby to her own bedroom.  We will then agree a day to begin the 48-hour period. This will be either on the same day as the initial call or a day during the coming week.

Once we begin, I will be available on FaceTime or phone any time during the following 48 hours, during the day or anytime throughout the night. I will be supporting you throughout bedtime, night walking and daytime sleeps. I will help you to follow my proven sleep system and give the confidence you need to continue.
