Dear Theresa, I wanted to write in the first instance to thank you very much for the plan you have laid out in your email for our family. I like the plan mostly as it does not try to hugely deviate from our current routine and should be doable over time. It would seem that with a few tweaks we could get to that 20% change you spoke about and that in itself would help us a great deal.

  I really appreciate all of your help and support with …..sleep over the last few weeks!...

I recently enlisted the expertise of Theresa and I couldn't be more delighted with the results. Her compassionate approach, coupled with her deep understanding of pediatric sleep patterns, helped us navigate through our child's sleep challenges. Not only did she provide us with practical strategies tailored to our child's needs, but also offered invaluable support and reassurance every step of the way. Thanks to Theresa's guidance, our household is now enjoying restful nights and happier, well-rested days. I highly recommend her services to any parent seeking assistance with their child's sleep habits.

 

 

In Theresa's own words

I welcome the opportunity to work with both children and adults  to improve  sleep , at your own pace and at the right time for you and your family.”

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

 

What is a sleep therapist/practitioner

A sleep practitioner is a trained professional who provides guidance and support for individuals or families struggling with sleep issues. They work to identify the specifics of your sleep disorder and then guide and support you to improve your sleep.


What can I expect during my consultation?

During your consultation you will be asked about your sleep problem and how long it has been causing difficulties. You will also be asked about your mental and physical health and any medications you may be taking and GP details. Understanding your occupation and and daily routine is  also helpful when assessing  sleep difficulties. You will also be asked about previous sleep therapy you may have had.  

Sleep diaries are an essential tool for sleep therapy and as part of the consultation you will be taught how to complete a sleep dairy. 

You will get a follow up email summarising what was discussed during your consultation. 


What type of appointment do you offer?

We offer online and in-person clinic based one-to-one appointments.


Do you need to see my child?

It's always a pleasure to meet children for all or part of the consultation. This can be very helpful, especially when working with adolescents. Generally it is a parental choice.


Do you travel to my home?

We do not offer home visits as part of our service.


Do you recommend controlled crying?

We only recommend the strategies you choose for your child. We prioritise effective and compassionate sleep therapy and crying out is not a method we recommend.
