The beauty of working with me to solve your sleep problems is that my method does not simply consist of just one philosophy. My programme, unlike many other sleep solutions, is far more holistic.
My process requires a thorough and sensitive understanding of one’s environment, lifestyle and personal circumstances. Through this knowledge I create a personalised routine and provide advice in order to determine the best way to develop independent sleep skills.
Most of us understand that learning a new routine and new habits takes consistency and time. Initially, we can expect to protest a new process to some extent. It is completely normal to experience a period of adjustment.
For babies and young children this discomfort is communicated through crying which can be unsettling for parents. However, it is important for my clients to understand that every step of my method is aimed at alleviating anxiety – not exacerbating it. This process is a journey we embark on together – with kindness and love.
The good news is that the protesting is temporary. We know we are working towards the greater goal of getting your family the quality sleep they deserve. The process will be worth it in the end
Sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone
Many people believe that sleeping through the night is a developmental milestone. It is not. It is actually a skill that is learned. Luckily we have the ability to pick up these necessary habits at any age, but the best time is when we are babies and small children as we learn so quickly at that age.
As parents it is our duty to keep our babies alive, healthy, safe and protected. We are the chosen ones to nurture and encourage their physical, emotional and spiritual growth. We should be able to teach them the skill of sleeping too – right?
This isn’t as easy for some as it is for others.
New baby = no sleep
It is a popular notion that when you become a parent you say goodbye to sleep and you will henceforth be exhausted until your children leave home.
Fortunately I have discovered through my own experience that this needn’t be the case. With a little bit of guidance most children, and adults, can learn the techniques and strategies needed to sleep through the night. How wonderful it is for parents to finally be rested enough to be able to keep up with the demands of life and parenting.
There’s nothing I can do about it and nothing helps
If you are reading this, you may need some help. I needed help too, and there is no shame in admitting that. I only wish I had found the right kind of help sooner.
It is my desire to come alongside you as we work together to improve your and you child’s sleep habits. You could be closer to a full night’s rest than you even realise. Trust me!
What I Provide
Whether I am treating you, or your child, ultimately we need to ensure that everyone is comfortable with the new sleep plan in order for it to work for your family.
I give my clients the necessary tools to create a suitable sleep environment and an age appropriate routine. I also provide guidance to encourage a child’s healthy sleep habits both at night and at nap time.
This is a journey we will go on together.
My services will all be available to you for the duration of your program that would include a detailed assessment to begin with, followed by a 90 minute consultation on Zoom, follow up phone phone calls and support via the Rested App.
I will lay out an easy-to-follow, step-by-step customised plan that lets you make some choices about what the right approach is.
Everyone is different, and nobody knows your needs better than you do. I will encourage you to use your knowledge as I create your unique sleep plan. We will also set some goals and targets in order to measure your progress and success.
I am confident I can help you and your family recover some much needed rest!
