Tailored help for your child's sleep

Isabelle was fantastic. If we ever have a second child we will be in contact straight away as we both now have the energy to truly enjoy parenthood. My husband was initially sceptical. However he has been amazed by the transition and now we are both regretting not having contacted Isabelle sooner. She was extremely professional, kind, understanding and non-judgemental which we felt was so important as we could be completely honest. Thank you Isabelle for all your help, we couldn’t recommend anyone more highly!

Toddlers and preschoolers are my favourite clients! My consultations take a different direction. During the first consultation, it is important that I  see the parents/child interactions to work out specifically what kind of support is needed. At that age, night time behaviours and daytime behaviours can no longer be dissociated. I take a holistic approach and analyse the whole situation. During the second consultation, I advice on daytime exercises to support the toddler’s transition to a better night time. I work with the parents to  develop implementation strategies to achieve their goals through key stepping stones.

The first consultation is held with the parents alone during day time. Depending on the nature of the issue(s), the second consultation is held with or without the child present. There is a wide range of factors to be taken into considerations when helping school children. My work with school children is closely supervised by a BACP child and adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor..

Modern context

Information on parenting today has never been so abundant and conflicting. It breeds fear and doubt amongst parents who find themselves in a position of despair and confusion. More often than not, those parenting difficulties tie in with sleep issues. They feed a vicious circle that leads children and parents to sleep deprivation
