Sleeping Like a Baby
 

HOW I WORK

WHO DO YOU WORK WITH?

I work with families and babies from 6 months upwards to develop a pattern of good sleep habits. This is on a one-to-one and individual basis. Each child and each family is different and unique and is treated as such.

I believe in a building a collaborative relationship with each family so that we can work out the best solutions together. Parents are the experts on their own children. I work to guide them, support them and to give them the confidence to help their child learn good sleeping skills. 


I work with clients all over Ireland and internationally.

WHERE WILL THE CONSULTATION TAKE PLACE?

Ideally, I prefer to meet each family in person and will travel to your home.


If you are located over 1 hour's drive from Galway, a small travel surcharge will apply.


If it is not possible for us to meet in person, then I will carry out a consultation over Skype/Facetime/Whatsapp/phone.

WHAT IS THE PROCESS?

  • You, the parents, complete a client history form which outlines your child's routine and sleep issues.

  • I schedule our consultation which typically takes 1.5 hours or so. I do encourage both parents to attend if at all possible. 

  • During the consultation we will discuss the information that you have provided on your form in a little more detail and I will talk to you about your child's sleep issue and potential solutions. Together we will devise a step-by-step plan that you are comfortable with and which is appropriate for your family.

  • Following our consultation I provide ongoing support in the form of phone calls and also emails/messages for 3 weeks . Phone calls are very important to give each family the support and guidance that they need. I typically call you at a suitable time  to check how you are doing, how your night was, discuss any questions you may have and to adjust our plan when necessary. I do not limit the time that I give on my calls to each family. Neither do I limit messages or emails. 

WHAT PROBLEMS CAN YOU HELP WITH?

I can help with any sleep issues, including the following:

  • Your baby cannot sleep without the breast or bottle

  • Your baby wakes during the night and cannot go back to sleep without the breast or bottle

  • Your baby or child wakes frequently during the night

  • Your baby must be rocked or held to sleep or go back to sleep

  • Your baby will only sleep on you

  • Your child refuses to sleep in their own cot or bed

  • Your child goes to sleep in their own cot or bed but you end up bringing them into your own bed during the night.

  • You regularly have to sleep in your child's bed or bedroom

  • Your child is tired but refuses to nap, only naps in the car or buggy or has very short naps and wakes up grumpy

  • You have bedtime battles every night with your toddler or young child

WHAT IS YOUR APPROACH?

I am a Gentle Sleep Consultant so my methods involve offering families gentle options to encourage their child to sleep well and also taking a holistic approach to infant sleep. While I cannot guarantee that there will be no tears at all, my methods are specifically designed to minimise crying through a kind and supportive approach.

My work with families is my passion. I will work with you until we have reached the best possible outcome. I am very happy be able to say that I have successfully helped every family that i have worked with.

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

DO I HAVE TO STOP BREASTFEEDING, SHARING A ROOM OR TAKE AWAY THE DUMMY/DODY?

Absolutely not. None of this is necessary for a good night's sleep and I will never ask you to do something that you are not comfortable with.
