Sleep Consultant Training – How Helen Did It!

Today I am ‘Sleep talking with…’ Certified Sleep Nanny Consultant Helen Farmer.

Helen has been running her sleep consulting business for well over a year now. She is a Mum of four beautiful children, three boys and a little girl, aged 10, 6, 5 and 2 and a half years old.

When she had her boys Helen wasn’t aware of sleep training or consulting, they all had sleep challenges that, at the time they just got on with.  However, as a family they placed a lot of value on sleep, despite not always getting that much!

Her youngest presented sleep challenges from the start, Helen was feeding her all through the night all the while trying to protect the boys sleep.  She looks back now and can see it really was a one woman show.  A middle of the night ‘Google’ made her aware of sleep training and The Sleep Nanny® brand and she felt like the training was for her!

The added bonus was that she had an ongoing active case study with her own daughter!

The first 6 months of running her own business was challenging. Helen was working in a 9-5 job as a Paediatric Occupational Therapist whilst trying to set up a business, and all the while being mum.  Helen was frustrated as there was a lot of interest in her services but she wasn’t always able to contact her sleep clients whilst juggling mum life and an ‘office job’.

So she took the leap and focused fully on her sleep consulting business – She has no regrets and has given it everything!

Helen’s family is now feeling the benefits from the career change as she can work around her kids and is able to do school runs and other family commitments.  If it’s a particularly busy family day, Helen can keep it clear and feels she can juggle it all now. It’s busy but in a really different and better way.

Being at home and being mum is a really important and busy job for Helen but her business has given her something for herself, for her career, to be able to develop herself but be present for her family too. Right now is a particularly busy for Helen as she is finding that many families are using the lock down to address sleep issues or challenges.

The real buzz she gets is when she has a conversation with a prospective new client who is often in a bad way.  She loves guiding them from this place of broken sleep, where it’s affecting the child’s personality and behaviour or the parents mental health/relationships to transforming their sleep and lives.

The ripples of the changes throughout the family is so rewarding to witness.

Helen’s ultimate goal is to keep building and growing her business and to keep stepping outside her comfort zone.  She has no regrets on where she is at the minute and is excited about what the future brings!

We hope you’ve enjoyed hearing Helen’s story (either on the YouTube channel or the podcast version)

What a difference ONE COACHING CALL makes!!
Mum, Michelle says.."I felt so desperate when we spoke and when you’re in that moment, it’s so hard to see a light at the end of a tunnel. Just goes to show a few small changes and consistency goes a long way!"

Lois (age 2) was waking super early every morning and struggling to nap at nursery. The family were exhausted.

We put a plan in place and this is what Michelle said..."Lois woke up at 06:40 today! I’ve gradually increased the wake-up time on her clock to 06:30, but today she woke up a good 10mins after it! I can’t believe the difference since our call 2wks ago".

You and your family could be sleeping better too. Drop us a message today to find out how we can help you solve your sleep challenges.

Is your little one resisting a second nap during the day?

If they are somewhere between 13 and 17 months then it is likely that they may be ready to transition from 2 naps to just the one.

This can be complicated and it can be on and off for a number of weeks so you need to be prepared.

Check out this weeks YouTube video where I answer the following questions;
- When is your little one ready to transition from 2 nap to 1?
- What are the signs?
- How do you navigate this when they don’t sleep at the ideal times?
- And how long will this transition take?

Drop me a thumbs up in the comments below if you think your little one is ready to drop down to one nap.
