Tailored 

Every child is unique and so naturally they will present sleep challenges in different ways.  

The solutions that I prepare are suited entirely to your situation and will take into account many factors including temperament, age, family dynamics, comfort level and your goals as a family.  I am well versed in a variety of techniques and whilst controlled crying has its place in sleep training, it might not always be the most suitable option.  We will work as a team and together we can agree on the most suitable option.  Regardless of which option we choose, before any formal sleep training begins, I focus on realigning and implementing the key foundations that impacts sleep. This is they key to success. Without this element, sleep training won’t work in a healthy and supported way.


Holistic 

I DON’T BELIEVE THERE IS SUCH THING AS A NATURALLY GOOD OR A BAD SLEEPER.

With my holistic approach to sleep I understand that any interruption to this natural function is a result of imbalance with one or more influencing factors (physical, emotional, social, environmental, developmental).  Before starting any formal sleep training, I  like to get to the root of your child’s sleep problem by investigating all of these areas and realigning the basic foundations. I analyse everything from nutritional intake, environment, activity levels and emotional wellbeing to attachment style, routines, negative sleep associations and sleep crutches. 

 
 

Whilst there are many useful books out there, they won’t be able to address your child’s specific situation and determine if it’s the most suited solution for your child. I will teach your child how to fall asleep independently and resettle without support by developing healthy habits.  More importantly, they also can’t be on hand to tell you what to do if the plan doesn’t work.
