Why should we work together

Hi and thanks for taking the time to click on my profile. I know you’re here because you want to find a way to help your little one get to sleep, so you as a busy parent can sleep too… well guess what… I love sleep, my husband loves sleep and my two young children really love sleep! One thing I’m certain about is that a family who are well-rested can spend the rest of their time having fun together. I would like to say my household is serene but with 2 energetic children it’s far from that… but night-time is the most peaceful time of the day.

I am a qualified Child Sleep Consultant certified by Baby Sleep the Night. I know that all families are different, with schedules, parenting styles, work commitments and other life admin – and that’s why when I am asked to work & support a family, I develop a sleep plan that is unique to your child’s needs and designed to fit around the way your family works.”

I was a sleep-starved parent, my baby girl would sleep at most 90 minutes at a time and only with endless hours of rocking, sshhing and holding to sleep. We were both shattered and I was finding it tough going. I was recommended to use a Sleep Consultant by a friend, and our family lives were changed instantly. It was lovely that we were all sleeping at night but the turning point for both of us was the advice and support she gave with naps. The days became fun again, we both had a routine (not too rigid) and without the tiredness we started to enjoy baby groups and socialising again. Even just a play on the swings felt good as we were rested and enjoying life without the nagging tiredness… I’ve been passionate about sleep ever since, and the reason I jumped at the chance to train as a Sleep Consultant and spread the zzzzz’s.

Following my further education in Health and Social care, I pursued a career as a Holistic Massage Therapist, and a Baby Massage Instructor. I’ve always been passionate about care, helping people, supporting them and therapeutic treatments. My goal as a Sleep Consultant is to provide positive gentle solutions to your child’s sleep. I’ve worked with newborns, babies, toddlers and twins with a 100% success rate.

Testimonials

Don't just take my word for it...

We contacted Kelly when our daughter was nearly 7 months old after seeing her recommended on Facebook. We were at our wits end as our baby had NEVER EVER napped anywhere other than on someone’s shoulder, needed rocking to sleep day and night and “slept” in bed with us every night (often waking for long periods in the early hours). We had no evenings as we couldn’t put her down until we went to bed with her. I also breastfed throughout the night to soothe her back to sleep. Everyone was exhausted and there was no sign of any improvement, so we decided that we needed to do something.

Kelly was very confident that she could help us but I laughed when she said that we would be able to just put baby in her cot and have time to ourselves in the day/evening. It seemed impossible. Still, we took the plunge and arranged a home visit, then got stuck in to the plan the next day.

I am not going to suggest that the plan was easy, as our daughter definitely made Kelly (and us) work hard! But, on night 1 after the first settling period she slept in her cot all night (with a few wake-ups) without us needing to go in, let alone feed her or rock her to sleep! In fact, on the whole we have now had almost 4 weeks of sleeping through the night, with a few blips here and there.

The day naps took longer and we are still working on these, but, from zero naps in the cot “pre-Kelly”, baby now gets much better sleep in the day. We have even managed a few days where she has had a full 2 hour sleep in the morning AND another hour in the afternoon!

Throughout the process Kelly was hugely supportive and kept us on track, with regular calls to check in and tons of advice over email/text. There is no way that we could have done it by ourselves - I think we would have given up on day 1!

4 weeks in and it’s hard to remember just how bad things were before we started. We wish that we had contacted Kelly sooner, rather than waiting to see if things would get better on their own. We are all so much happier and less tired!

Within a few nights of following the personalised plan that Kelly developed for us, my 7 month old baby (whom had never slept more than an hour or so at a time) was self-settling and sleeping through the night for the first time ever. We are now a few months down the line and things couldn’t be better. My baby is happy, full of energy and actively enjoys going to bed, and I no longer dread the nights. I can honestly say Kelly worked miracles for us, and I would not hesitate to recommend her to any parent struggling with a little sleep thief.

After nine months of not sleeping we decided it was time to get in touch with an expert to help our daughter MXXXX to sleep! It had got to the stage of her waking every hour at night and ‘needing’ me to offer her a milk feed or rock her back to sleep.

We were really reluctant to sleep train as we didn’t want to have to let our much doted on daughter cry but Kelly was so understanding of our situation and the crying/protesting has been minimal!

MXXXX is only two weeks into sleep training and is sleeping through the night from 7-7, it’s an absolute dream and we could NEVER have got to this point without Kelly. Her advice, personalised plan and support has been just incredible. MXXXX is so much more content; although she has always been a happy baby she is now super happy! As parents so are we! We feel like we’ve got our lives back on track, we’re planning our first date night since our beautiful baby arrived and couldn’t recommend Kelly highly enough.
