Providing parents with evidenced based information to help them feel confident in the choices they make.

Hi, I'm Jo-Anne

Paediatric Sleep Consultant, NNEB Nursery Nurse, Nanny and Maternity Nurse. Mum of 3 (now aged 11, 19 and 21).

Thank you for visiting my website. You may have found me whilst looking for a baby sleep consultant so let me tell you a little bit about me and how I can help you…

I don’t consider myself just a sleep coach. My extensive understanding and knowledge of babies and children means that I can holistically support families.

My mother owned and worked in our children nurseries’ throughout my life and as I grew up I would visit every day after school and I would help. I would regularly babysit and nanny for many of the families. Eventually, I trained in Management and Personnel, but the pull back to working with children was too great. So, in my mid-twenties I retrained and began my new life, working with babies, children and their families. Firstly, as a Nursery Nurse / Nanny, then as a Sleep consultant.

As a sleep consultant, it would be easy to assume my children sleep well every night, but, like all parents, I’ve had my fair share of sleepless nights. As a mum of three, I vividly remember the joy of those early years – but I also remember times coloured by tiredness, stress and anxiety.

I have learned how important it is to understand how unique every child is. All of my children have very individual personalities and had very different sleep issues – so for each of them, I had to find different approaches to encourage their sleep, without ever resorting to ‘cry – it -out ‘. At this time, I would have loved to have reached out for someone’s help.

Now I have taken all of this experience, training and knowledge with me to work. There is no ‘one size fits all’ approach to parenting, nor to sleep. I work with each child and family individually, to help find the solution that works best for them.
