FAQ

A helping hand in answering your questions

HOW CAN I START WORKING WITH YOU?

Simply drop me a message or arrange a free 15 minute call

 

I will guide you from there on the next steps to get you started on the gentle journey to better sleep. 

DO YOU USE CRY IT OUT METHODS?

In short, No. I work with families in responsive and compassionate ways to support our little's to sleep. I don't promise that your child won't cry (because all children cry sometimes!), but I do promise they won't ever be left alone or ignored when they are trying to communicate with us!

DO YOU OFFER REMOTE CONSULTATIONS?

Yes! Most of our consultations are remote and all done via the power of the internet!

You will be supported daily via email, Whatsapp and Call support. 

WHAT DOES A FREE DISCOVERY CALL ENTAIL?

The free discovery call is a way for us to chat about your families sleep dilemmas. I offer a listening ear to understand where your family is struggling. There is absolutely no costs involved so you can decide if I am the perfect match for your family and that you are ready to jump right into things!

MY CHILD STILL BREASTFEEDS, DOES THIS MEAN I CAN'T HAVE SUPPORT YET?

No! Holistic sleep support can happen at any point no matter how the child is fed. I can support you in your feeding journey, whatever this may look like. If you feel like you are nearing the end of your breastfeeding journey and feel ready to stop then this can also be nicely integrated into your plan to support the child through this transition.

HOW LONG DOES SLEEP SUPPORT TAKE?

Just like anything, no two children are the same. Some children are quickly encouraged to better sleep in a night or two. Whereas others take slightly longer if there are more issues that need addressing. By nature, taking a gentle and holistic approach is done slowly to allow your little one to adjust gradually to the big changes we are making to their lives! I will always support you to a better place with sleep and leave you with steps in a follow on plan to continue the responsive sleep support. 

I JUST HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT SLEEP DO I HAVE TO WORK WITH YOU TO GET AN ANSWER?

Absolutely not. Don't be afraid to reach out, I am more than happy to try and answer your questions! 

My goal is to get everyone sleeping better so ask away

WHAT AGES CAN YOU WORK WITH?

I work with Infants and children from 3 Months to 5 years old.

 

Don't be afraid to reach out if your child doesn't fall between this age bracket, I can still help to point you in the right direction!

ISN'T THE INTERNET GOOD ENOUGH?

The internet is a brilliant tool for fact finding and squashing little niggles when it comes to sleep. However, sometimes finding an answer that is really relevant to you can be a little harder (and time consuming!) A sleep expert takes the overwhelming feeling out of the equation and provides you with practical suggestions tailored specifically to your child.

WHY DO I NEED A SLEEP CONSULTANT?

Having a sleep expert by your side at bedtime can be on hand to work through any issues can be a godsend! Unlike books, or good old google, having a real life person to reassure you of what a fantastic job you are doing and to help adapt as we go will support you in reaching your childs biologically best sleep.

MY FAMILY HAS TRIED EVERYTHING, WILL THIS ACTUALLY HELP?!

Often parents reach absolute exhaustion before they reach out!
Accredited sleep training means I have the skills to objectively assess your child's sleep needs and put into practice a killer plan, throwing all my knowledge and experience at your issue. I will be there every step of the way to offer a helping hand. Most importantly I will be able to empathise and adapt with your family to get the best results.

WHAT METHODS DO YOU USE?

Methods used by The Little Sleep Company are ALL gentle, responsive and compassionate with yours and your child's needs at the forefront. Ways in which you are supported vary depending on the circumstances and challenges we are facing, but we take a deep-dive into a range of parenting topics such as diet. The sleep methods you decide to use will be entirely down to you and we can discuss these during your consultation call. Your child's temperament and your approach to parenting all play into this. Rest assured all my methods are truly gentle and NOT separation or tears based.

My Partner isn't on board with getting sleep support, what can I do?

Sometimes the idea of letting someone into your personal lives is challenging, especially when your little ones are involved. 

I am happy to support families in finding a change that works for them and more than willing to chat with family members who aren't sure about this process to put their mind at ease and share some practical suggestions for how we could work with their preferences. 

I can't afford sleep support what can I do?

I have a variety of packages available to my clients all ranging in price to support families whatever their circumstance. 

Payment plans are also available upon request to spread the cost of your purchase!

I have many free resources for families and am more than happy to chat about your circumstances and offer you relevant support free of charge.
