little sleep coach
I am passionate about empowering parents to improve their children’s sleep.
I take a holistic approach – looking at the whole picture, then providing flexible options and extensive follow-up support.
Internationally Certified Baby Sleep Consultant
Registered Nurse - Bachelor of Nursing Degree
Qualified Breastfeeding Peer Supporter
Qualified Nanny - New Zealand National Nanny Certificate | Diploma ECE
I have worked with babies and children my whole working life. As an infant and child sleep coach, I get to do what I love: working with families to improve their quality of life, by achieving better sleep for the whole family.
I am an experienced Registered Nurse and mother of two young children. My time as a stay at home mother, and international experience as a live-in Maternity Nanny, are also invaluable for my work as a baby sleep coach.
When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, and playing hockey.
Little Sleep Coach is based in Christchurch, however I provide Phone and Email packages for clients throughout New Zealand and overseas. If you live in the Greater Christchurch area, Home Consultations (day, evening, overnight) are also available.
complimentary 15-minute consultation
Contact me to arrange a confidential, no obligation chat to discuss your child’s sleep issue/s and to help you decide whether Little Sleep Coach is the right ‘fit’ for your child, family and parenting style.
sleep assessment & sleep plan - how it works
Sleep Assessment Questionnaire
Initially, I will need you to complete a detailed questionnaire - this will allow me to evaluate your current situation and concerns.
I'm a firm believer that there is no one size fit's all approach when it comes to working with babies and children. I work with parents who identify as having more a gentle style of parenting as well as those who consider themselves more mainstream.
Customised Sleep Plan
I then work with you to develop a holistic Sleep Plan that meets the needs of your child, their temperament and your parenting style. I will also be available for follow-up support (e.g. via phone and email) to answer questions, spot issues and fine-tune the Sleep Plan, if needed.
All Little Sleep Coach Consultation options include extensive written information in regard to:
Understanding your baby/child’s sleep
Their sleep environment
Advice about feeding & nutrition
Nap patterns & routines
Current nap issues & how to address them
Methods to help your baby/child learn to sleep independently
