Who I am and What I stand for
Hello, I'm Michelle.
I am Mum to three football mad boys and along with my husband Chris live in a small village in Berkshire. I am passionate about empowering and helping parents to take them from a place of struggling to a place of thriving.
When I became a Mum I realised how much sleep (or lack of it) can affect the whole family. I know first-hand what it feels like to be sleep deprived and in survival mode. All the advice I was given was to use controlled crying or ‘cry it out’ but this went against my natural parenting instincts.
As a pharmacist with a strong scientific background I set out to learn all I could around the areas of infant brain development and the science of sleep. I discovered that there are gentle alternative methods to helping your child sleep which do not harm child attachment and connection. The impact on our family was profound and I am now passionate about helping children to sleep well using gentle methods.
After many years working as a community pharmacist, I completed the Holistic Sleep Coaching qualification which has given me the evidence-based foundations of sleep science and gentle, responsive sleep strategies. I have a non-judgemental, down to earth and friendly approach focusing on your family and your sleep goals.
I love helping families solve their child’s sleep issues step-by-step, helping them become the best sleepers they can be. With better sleep, families can enjoy life more and parents get the rest and downtime they so desperately need. If you are ready to make some changes to your family’s sleep habits and feel that my values connect with you, I would love to hear from you!
I have completed the OCN Level 6 Holistic Sleep Coaching Course which is degree level and the most comprehensive training available.
I have completed training on:
- Sleep and Autism
- Sleep and Allergy
- SIDS and caring for bereaved parents
