WHAT ISSUES CAN YOU SUPPORT ME WITH?

Gentle Sleep Support is available for a wide range of concerns and ages of child, including (but not limited to): early rising, nap timings, bedtime, frequent waking, night weaning, overview of your sleep situation & emotional & practical parenting support. 

WHAT AGE children DO YOU WORK WITH?

Gentle Sleep Support is available for infants & children from newborn to approximately 8 years old. There are different support options suitable for different ages. Please see below for more information on the various support services available. 

ARE YOUR TECHNIQUES COMPATIBLE WITH BREASTFEEDING ?

Yes, as an infant feeding specialist my gentle sleep support techniques are  protective of the Breastfeeding relationship.

What age is the online course suitable for?

The online sleep course is suitable from newborn through to toddlerhood. More information is available here

Do you use any crying techniques ?

Some techniques used with older babies may involve some resistance from your child, but they are never left to cry unsupported.

Do you have night weaning advice

I work with parents who wish to night-wean from approximately 12-18 months. I can offer support with night wakings from newborn.

I need changes fast! How long until I see results ?

With gentle sleep support, changes may take longer than typical sleep training strategies. The rewards for taking this time will benefit you and your child’s relationship and their long term physical and mental wellbeing.

Whilst I would expect you to see some improvement after the initial 2 weeks, please understand that consistency with what is implemented, and potentially further strategies, is usually required to see longer term outcomes.

What happens if I need further support?

Sleep coaching clients receive follow up support for 2 weeks via email as you begin to implement your plan. If you require further support after this period as you continue your sleep plan, a follow up call can be booked at client rate. My sleep coaching services is devised in a way so parents can determine what ongoing support they require, and makes the initial information affordable and accessible to more families.

Standalone sleep smart call clients can book in again if and when required.
