I was convinced Karen would tell me there was nothing she could do to help us with Zac’s sleeping. I felt like we’d tried everything. So I was amazed, one session with Karen down, Zac was sleeping in his cot for the first time during the day. Thank you Karen!

Karen was highly recommended by a friend and I decided to give her a go. She connected with Julia right away but mainly she understood me. She knew what I was struggling with and she gave me all the tools I needed to act and avoid the 4th month sleep regression. I would recommend Karen to all the parents that struggle with a baby because babies they do not grow out of catnapping but they can with Karen’s help.

I cannot recommend Karen highly enough. She is one of those special gems that we were lucky enough to find. 

Karen had my daughter sleeping through on night 1 and self-settling without controlled crying. I am pleased to announce now back in NZ her amazing sleep has continued she has not had one night feed and if she wakes in the night has been putting herself back to sleep within a couple of minutes. Thank you again Karen you are one in a million and once again you have saved us all from the world of sleep deprivation.

Karen's approach is confident and extremely knowledgable.

Her ability to recognise a baby's protest from a serious need is what I believe is her magic touch.
Karen's approachable and non judgemental interactions have always left me the mother with so much more confidence and enjoyment from my child. She is one of a kind and an extremely gifted lady.
I feel so relieved that our paths have crossed and I can't recommend her enough.
