We cannot tell you how delighted we are with the sleep training we received from Lucy. Prior to our sessions our daughter Rosa, 5.5 months old her day naps were awful. She would only sleep when in the car or stroller and only for a short duration. Some mornings and afternoons she would be so tired she would get so upset and would inconsolably cry until you took her out of the house...

Lucy was a truly brilliant nanny. She was lively, loving, firm, clear and cheerful with our children and they responded very well to her. She gave every hour she worked 100%. She quickly identified areas in need of improvement and suggested and implemented effective solutions. Her sleep training was thorough and thoughtful and individually tailored to each child and it worked perfectly...
Lucy was amazing! We felt very supported as she guided us through each step of the programme.
She was excellent at personalising the training and we felt she really understood our little boy and our family needs and routines. Our little boy is profoundly deaf, and Lucy was brilliant at taking this in to account and adapting things where necessary...

Just over one month ago, we had a whingy 14 month old who fought going down for his naps and woke up in the night (most of the time he would settle himself). To be honest, it didn't seem like we had much of an issue with sleep compared to others, but there had been a change, so it was a problem for us. Then along came Lucy! ...
Did you know?
That self settling is a learned skill ?
This is where a child can consciously put themselves to sleep. Parents often think that their little one can self settle when in fact, they are so tired that they are conking out! This is often the root cause of many common sleep problems including night waking’s and inadequate naps.
That there is a direct link between how a child feels and how they behave?
Sometimes it’s not as straightforward as being tired, hungry or bored. A child might be full of big emotions that they don’t yet understand how to manage or they may not be able to communicate what it is they need from us. When we can recognise the emotions we can then deal with the behaviours behind them more effectively.
That different temperaments need different approaches?
Temperament is a range of traits that define how a child interacts with the world. A child can be particularly sensitive, relaxed, persistent or intense which can influence their behaviours and sleep. By understanding a child’s temperament we can find an approach that best suits them.
