SophieLondon"We called The Sleep School when our second child Mia wouldn't be put down to sleep in the night. He gave us very helpful and supportive steps to follow which really helped with having a routine to follow. We enjoyed his guidance, which fitted with our parenting style and not one of those "let your child cry himself to sleep technic" but felt just right!"
HannaHampshire"Our daughter had been an early riser (4.30/5am!) ever since she was born and so my husband and I were hesitant if the changes The Sleep School had recommended us to do would work. But what a difference! Our little girl slept through the night at once and now gets up at 6.30am, with the rest of us. It's fantastic to see what a difference these changes has made on our daughter's personality. She is such a happy and content girl when she's not always tired."
JamesLondon"It's no exaggeration to say that The Sleep School helping us to teach our 14-month old to sleep has changed our lives. They listened to us and gave suggestions not just focused on bedtime but also day time routines as well as offering strategies to deal with the thoughts and feelings that my husband and I were having. After two weeks of hard work we now have a child that can fall asleep happily in her cot without us (she'd not ever done that before) and will self-settle when she wakes in the night. We also feel like we can cope with any changes that she might go through and confidently spend nights away from home. I can't recommend The Sleep School enough, they give intelligent and sympathetic advice and offered us all the support we needed to put his plan into action."
ClareLondon“After struggling for five months with a maximum of four hours sleep a night, The Sleep School came to my rescue in helping me encourage my little boy to sleep. By providing both simple yet practical steps to take, my baby's sleep was literally transformed within a matter of nights and we all got the rest we desperately needed. Nearly a year down the line, we still follow the same routine and our nights are very rarely interrupted, which in turn means we have a well rested and happy little boy. If you're wondering where to turn for advice on your little one's sleep, then look no further, I can't recommend The Sleep School enough!”
AlisonLondon“After 8 years of piling on the bed time process in an effort to get our daughter to sleep, the whole family was totally wound up by the time our daughter should have been wound down ready for bed! Thank you, for helping us re-invent our bed times and re-initialize our 8 year olds sleeping skills. We learned that less is more and in a (relatively) short time were able to not so much re-train ourselves and our daughter, as establish a new normal. Our daughter has now gained an important life skill that was missing, and we have gained experience and methods of managing and teaching that life skill that will never leave us. It took some grit and determination, but boy, it was SO worth it. THANK YOU, thank you for our new normal, The Sleep School!.”
Frequently Asked Questions
What age children do you help?The majority of babies that we see range from 3 months to 3 years of age. In certain circumstances we do see younger babies and older children.
How long does it take to work?The length of time a programme take to work depends on the severity and type of sleeping issues presented, as well as the motivation of the parents to implement the programme. On average most parents report improvements in their babies/toddlers sleep after the first few days, with consistent good sleeping habits being established within a month. In some cases, such as where the child's poor sleeping habits are well ingrained, they are reliant on multiple sleep aids or have learnt to sleep and wake at the wrong times, it may take longer.
Will we need to visit your clinic?No. All sessions are delivered via skype or phone as this has proven to be the most effective and popular delivery method for our parents. Given that you will be responsible for implementing the programme we do not need to meet your baby.
