My Story & Why I Can help You
My name is Elizabeth. I live on the North East coast with my wife and our son.
I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Childhood Studies and Care & Education: Early Years, a Post-Graduate Certificate in Primary Education and have eleven years teaching experience. After becoming a parent and experiencing first-hand the detriments of sleep-deprivation, I undertook the training required to qualify as a certified Sleep Consultant.
As a first-time parent, I stumbled across many pitfalls but sleep proved the biggest challenge. Despite extensive research online and in books, I had no idea of how to help my baby regulate his body clock or how to be consistent with a bedtime routine. Wake-windows? Appropriate nap lengths? I found it all so confusing. Contradictory websites, literature and voices of family and friends soon had my head swimming. I needed a light in the dark. A single voice to guide me in the right direction. I didn’t know it at the time but that voice would be that of a sleep consultant.
It took me ten months to admit I needed support. Ten months of berating myself for the inability to get my child to sleep through the night. Ten months of telling myself that constant night wakings, catnapping and early rising was all part and parcel of parenthood. Ten months of feeling that asking for help meant I’d failed.
Now I know that seeking the support of a sleep consultant was the single most positive thing I could have done for my family’s health and well-being. Within a few nights, my wife and I had our first full night’s sleep since our son was born. We got our evenings back and began to reconnect as a couple. The life and energy was restored to our home and we’ve never looked back.
Now I guide families struggling with sleep the way we were. Taking the time to explore the sleep support you require and what you want to achieve whilst working together allows me to construct a truly bespoke programme for your family. Using a gentle sleep training method with a staged approach tailored to the individual needs of every client, your entire household could be getting more sleep in just a matter of days.

Our journey to becoming same-sex parents certainly wasn’t without its difficulties. This fuels my passion for parent equality. Every family can be certain of a warm and respectful welcome.
