I cannot recommend Katie highly enough and I'm so glad we found her.
David and Deborah, parents to Ollie, aged 2.5 years
I am an experienced private and corporate family sleep consultant based in North London. I have 10 years in child services and education, offering family-centred, holistic and research-based advice and support on adult and child sleep issues, infant feeding and children's routines and behaviour. I have helped nearly 1000 families get better sleep.
I am a degree-level certified Holistic Sleep Coach (OCN Level 6 - Babyem). This is the only qualification in the UK awarded at this level, focussing on evidence-based literature and academic 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 a certified Integrative Adult Sleep Coach with the International Parenting & Health Institute and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia clinician. I use a highly successful combination of holistic and CBT-I strategies to help adults in all stages of their lives overcome acute and chronic insomnia.
I am 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.
