Hello, I’m Alison, your Hong Kong based sleep expert. My journey to becoming a certified Sleep Sense™ Consultant was created and inspired by my own struggle with insomnia which was then perpetuated by the arrival of our baby girl who wasn’t sleeping.
Our darling Aurora was not living up to her name of being a sleeping beauty. Beauty, yes. Sleeping, not so much. I had experienced months of getting up at least three times a night. I tried to be proactive and read countless articles and books. I tried taking both my mother’s advice and my friends’ advice – but nothing worked.
I found myself longing for the days when I only had to deal with the fatigue brought on from my own lifelong insomniac problems.
Something had to change. But what?
I will be forever grateful that a friend came to my rescue by introducing me to the Sleep Sense™ Program. She had used a consultant and achieved great success.
After implementing the program ourselves, my husband and I were taught how to establish healthier sleep habits for our baby. I could not believe it but Aurora started sleeping through the night after only a few days! It felt miraculous!
We were able to face nap and bedtime without the stress it had previously caused. We took back control of our evenings and were able to regain some of our much needed sleep – and general down time and me time.
It was only after I started clearing my immense sleep debt with uninterrupted rest that I started to feel like my ‘normal’ pre-baby self again. I had even found myself sleeping better than before we had Aurora as I was using the consultant’s advice to improve my own sleep patterns.
Our sleeping beauty – and also personally – is a testament to how well the program works. I wholeheartedly believe that if it solved our sleep crisis, it can solve yours too.
With a desire to return to work, I jumped at an opportunity to train with Dana Obleman to become a Certified Sleep Sense™ Consultant. My past corporate experience dealing with vulnerable clients who had been made redundant has prepared me well to help struggling parents in a sleep crisis.
Having also experienced first-hand the torture of a lack of sleep, I can understand what parents are going through and I can help them on their journey towards better sleep.
Knowing I can help people by providing the practical application of a sleep program makes me feel enormously fulfilled. I am thoroughly convinced that it was the right career move.
I love the process of solving problems and finding solutions to the sleep challenges parents face with their children.
If you are struggling and are in need of a little help, it is my desire to work alongside you to improve your child’s sleep habits which will, in turn, help improve your quality of sleep too.
You could be closer to a full night’s rest than you even realise…trust me!
