I’m Sarah, certified Holistic Sleep Coach and mum of two. My interest in sleep began when I struggled with my own daughter’s sleep and decided to work with a sleep consultant hoping that they would help me to “fix the problem”. I was told that I needed to sleep train her and for me personally this was the wrong decision. I could not bear to hear her cry and I found that my own anxiety around her sleep went through the roof.
I quickly realised that sleep training was not right for our family and started to look into alternative ways to improve her sleep that did not involve leaving her on her own to cry. I discovered that there are many ways to improve sleep that are responsive and don’t involve tears and I felt so strongly about not wanting other families to go through what I had that I decided to train and become a sleep consultant myself.
I am passionate about helping families understand normal infant sleep and working with them to optimise sleep for their family in a truly gentle and respectful way. Every child is unique which is why it is so important to understand their particular situation before giving support, there is no one size fits all solution when it comes to sleep! I truly believe that parents are always the experts when it comes to their own children so my aim is to give parents the confidence and tools to trust their instincts and do what they feel is best for their child.
