My Story

My name is Lucy and that is me in the photo with my husband and two children. I am British and I live on the south coast of England but I serve families all over the world. Since having our son and working through his sleep challenges, I have had a passion and a fascination for child sleep and the science and philosophies that are unique to children. Previous generations have told themselves that it is all just a part of parenthood and that we just have to endure the sleep deprivation until it passes but it really doesn’t have to be that way. With a bit of help, guidance and support, you can create a well rested household and install excellent sleep skills that will benefit your child for life.

​During a nursery parents evening, my daughter’s key-worker told me of a mother whose son was nearly two and had never slept through the night. She described how worn out this poor mother seemed on a daily basis. I immediately felt compassion for this mother and desperately wanted to help her. I knew she did not need to suffer and she could feel the same relief I felt when I had some help to transform my family from tired and grumpy to well rested and cheerful in such a short space of time. This was not the first time I had felt compelled to help tired parents get their sleep back. My passion for the subject and my desire to help change people’s lives for the better, had been manifesting! It was after that parents evening in October 2013 that I decided I had to do this as a profession.

I am a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach, trained and mentored by Kim West, LCSW-C (a.k.a. “the Sleep Lady”) who has been helping tired parents for over 17 years.. The Gentle Sleep Coach Program is the first and most extensive professional sleep coach training and certification program available. The program involves over 80 hours of training with a faculty panel that includes 2 medical doctors, a psychologist, an attorney, lactation counsellor, postpartum doulas and a family therapist. I had to pass an exam and participate in case supervision with Kim West, LCSW-C.  Clinical supervision and ongoing advanced training are required to maintain certification as a Gentle Sleep Coach. The GSC Program also includes an exclusive advanced training series specifically focused on how to gently work with babies 4 and 5 months of age. This program, which I have also completed, consists of over 40 hours of instruction and mentorship.

As a mother who has been in your shoes, I can tell you that there is light, or should I say sleep, at the end of the tunnel and, what’s more, I can take you by the hand and show you the way, FAST! I appreciate any skepticism you (or more likely, your partner) might have, as I have been there also – Don’t be afraid, ask me anything you need to know to help make a decision. It won’t cost you a penny to ask. Having learnt as much as I have, I feel blessed that my Son has been a challenge with his sleep because he is part of the inspiration that made me want to pass on the gift of sleep to other tired parents.

My mission is simple – I want to change as many lives as possible for the better by giving the gift of sleep, helping families to feel refreshed and able to enjoy better quality time together.

My Methods

I have studied the many methods of sleep training which have come from pioneers, experts and their philosophies. I do not offer just one method as there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution. My job is to use my knowledge to devise a bespoke plan just for you and your unique situation because every family, lifestyle, personality and circumstance is unique. If you are thinking ‘does sleep coaching mean leaving my child to cry-it-out?’ No, I won’t ask you to do that, in fact, as a Gentle Sleep Coach, I encourage you to respond to your child. I want sleep coaching to be as gentle on the parents as it is on the babies and most mum’s especially, find it too difficult to leave their baby to cry – it’s our instinct to comfort our children. So I aim to minimise crying while maximising results. There is likely to be some tears because rarely does a child accept change without a little protest , especially if they’re very tired! But you’ll be able to comfort your child and be there for your child as you teach them the sleep skills they are so desperately asking you for.
