My name is Catherine Thompson, and I am an experienced Baby Sleep Consultant with over 15 years experience. I am also a mother of 2 young girls. I provide families with the knowledge, processes and confidence to help their babies find sleep more easily.
My belief is that all babies have different requirements when it comes to sleep, however the frustration and anxiety caused from a lack of sleep can take it’s toll and I am passionate in helping families resolve this so they can focus on the joys of parenting.
Whilst I do believe each baby is unique with their own sleep needs, I use a ‘response based” sleep approach when it comes to settling. What this means is by responding gently and consistently you can create a more comforting and secure environment for your baby thus encouraging sleep. I believe in working with families on “slowing down” and interpreting a situation before responding. I respect that every families situation is different and that working collaboratively to achieve set goals is most effective.
From the beginning I take a holistic approach allowing me to gain an overall picture of what your family looks like and how your baby is behaving and responding at present. It is from this perspective that I can make my recommendations about how to best support you and your baby moving forward. Please give me a call if you would like to chat further.
