Hi I am Sally a mum of two gorgeous girlies. I am an advanced infant sleep consultant and an occupational therapist.
I have always been passionate about sleep and helping people with their sleep issues. Within my role as an NHS Occupational therapist, specialising in pain management, I have helped many of my adult patients with their sleep.
My passion for infant sleep began after my eldest daughter Darcey was born. I researched and informed myself of everything there was to know about infant sleep and put into place a routine from very early on. Darcey slept brilliantly. I thought I had it all figured out until Delilah came along. During a light bulb moment, I realised that my children were different and I needed to take a different approach to managing her sleep issues. By getting her into a good routine and putting some healthy sleep habits in place I was able to resolve sleep issues quite quickly. In 2021, I decided to pursue my interest in sleep further and obtained my level 6 OCN certification.
I recognise the importance of sleep for the wellbeing of the entire family and how making small changes can make a huge difference. Sleep is a biological necessity; we all need it. I want to empower parents to have the confidence to shape their child’s sleep and to no longer endure endless nights of sleep deprivation.
