Katie has been an absolute lifesaver for us and by far the best money we have ever spent on our daughter!
Aimee, mother to Remi, aged 5 months
I was put in touch with Katie, after our initial chat we agreed a couple of steps for his first night in his cot and his own room, then kicked off properly the next night. He slept through the night on the 2nd proper night! 11 hours! My husband and I could not believe it! In our first week he slept through on 5 nights, and has also been napping in this cot, giving me the chance to shower etc in peace! I won't pretend its all been easy, but the change has been incredibly quick. With Katie's support and personalised advice, I'm totally confident I'm doing the right thing to help my baby develop. He's still a very happy smiley boy, and we have more fun for me being better rested.
Katie's style is gentle and supportive, she has built my confidence and adapted to our preferences for our baby. We've discussed all elements of his day, from recipe suggestions to resettling techniques and lighting! Working over email and phone has worked really well for me. I really feel she has been a lifesaver, I'm feeling more human again and positive about motherhood!"

Katie was recommended by one of my NCT friends and I am so glad I made that call. From the start Katie listened to what we had to say, was warm, non-judgemental, and honest in her responses. Katie's approach to sleep training was a holistic one - we went from a baby who would not eat solids or nap at regular times, to a baby who now eats three good sized meals everyday, has two regular naps, and sleeps through the night. The transformation has been amazing!
I can't thank Katie enough for her support and advice throughout our sleep training. Katie went above and beyond what I expected and was always there with helpful suggestions when I most needed them. To be honest, she helped so much, I'm not sure this testimonial does her justice!".

We were previously apprehensive about sleep training as we thought it was cruel and unnecessary. Katie's method was neither and she explained things so well. Her support throughout was fantastic and gave us so much confidence.

Thank you for giving me the confidence and reassurance to put her in her own room and the belief that she didn't need night feeds."
Sophie, mother to Emilia, aged 8 months
Rachel, mother to Cleo, aged 6 months
We got in touch to address toddler (26 months) bedtime settling (almost 2hrs to get him down some nights) and night waking separation anxiety but Katie has included a plan for our (slightly fretful) 7 month old too so their routines are complimentary which means no more juggling them at bedtime when I'm on my own!
The sleep training methods themselves isn't anything we'd not read a bit about and half tried but she has looked at their whole daily routine and helped us to identify areas to change that impact on their night time sleep. Plus given us strict guidelines for two different approaches to suit the stage that each of them are at. She has a lovely manner and is very thorough.
We're just starting out on the implementation but already feeling that it's working and importantly we feel like we are confident and in control now."

Laura, mother to Gracie, aged 7 months
Juliette is bright and bonny, and remarkably pleasant during the day, even more than before. The schedule has relieved a lot of stress from my life; as I can predict her naps, feeds and meals. I plan our outings around these.
Overall we are delighted with the results and that's thanks to your guidance and knowledge which Kristian and I are very appreciative of. I acknowledge there will be setbacks along the way so we are taking each night at a time until we get confident enough that it might become second nature. You'll be the first person I come to if we need further advice."
Joanna, mum to Juliette, age 7 months
So thank you again, we are so glad we saw you and for baby no. 2 we will definitely do this much earlier on."

Your approach was great and I really appreciate you answering my emails so quickly and with the level of detail. I’ve been telling anyone who’ll listen so you might get some calls from other Bristol mums in need!"

Thanks so much for your guidance and giving us the confidence to do the sleep training! It’s literally changed our lives!"
Nita and Amish, parents to Avi aged 10 months
My husband and I are very grateful to Katie for her simple, effective tips. I'll definitely be hitting Katie up when Baby #2 comes along in November and have given her phone number to many of my sleep-deprived mum friends. I was dubious of sleep consultants before meeting Katie but now am a firm believer. Thank you Katie!"
Cassandra, mother to Rupert, aged 2
There were inevitable bumps in the road with progress, but Katie was always so reassuring and helpful in her suggestions to get things back on track.
I must be honest, I am sure I asked Katie more questions along the way than most people would! Katie always made me feel as though they were important, never trivial, and came back to me quickly, with detailed answers.
At the end of the plan, Katie provides further information about next steps and routine development moving forward, which I was really impressed by. Katie doesn’t just deal with the here and now, but thinks ahead to help you deal with upcoming changes. I now feel really well armed in facing the next nap transition, from two to one nap (and beyond). In my view that really is above and beyond and I am so grateful for those extra tips to help me move forward with confidence.
To put it simply, Katie is exceptional at what she does and I can not recommend her highly enough. Thank you so much Katie."

I am a certified Holistic Sleep Coach qualified at OCN Level 5 (SCQF level 8/Diploma Level - Babyem). This is the only qualification in the UK at this level focussing on evidence-based literature and research with backing and training from a wealth of internationally renowned professionals in the fields of infant care/research, sleep, feeding and allergies, such as Professor Amy Brown, Professor Helen Ball, Shell Banks, Maureen Minchin and Lyndsey Hookway. I also have OCN Level 3 qualifications in Sleep Training (MNT) and Breastfeeding Skills (Babyem).
This means that I am trained in the theory of infant sleep architecture and biology, using the key models of sleep training and a wealth of holistic strategies, as well as how to support breastfeeding mothers and diagnose and resolve feeding problems.
My training also covers managing behavioural problems, safe sleeping, working with pre-term babies and multiples, sensory issues, anxiety in children and parents, and issues requiring more specific clinical knowledge, such as nutrition for sleep, infant mental health, parasomnias and allergy, colic and reflux.
I am also fully insured, DBS checked and trained in paediatric first aid.
I have a BA Hons degree in English Literature from University College London and Qualified Teacher Status. Before working with families as a sleep consultant, I taught in an inner-city primary school and experienced first-hand how vital sleep, routine, consistency and setting gentle parenting boundaries are to giving children the right environment to learn and thrive.
When I had my first son, I continued to look after children as an Ofsted registered childcarer. I therefore bring to my practice wider behaviour management training and understanding of child development, as well as a passion for nurturing children in their formative years.
I am a member of the British Sleep Society and the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants.

I am dedicated to working with you in a way that you are comfortable with. I will always take the time to fully explore your child’s sleep issue and background before recommending a course of action, and give lots of reassurance throughout, in order that you can make the right changes with confidence.
Please note that my advice and guidance is based on my training and experience working with parents and children. I am not medically qualified and you should always consult your GP or healthcare professional if you are in any way concerned about your child.
