I specialise in, and only offer, in-home consults with follow-up support for at least a week. I feel it is important to meet my client and their child face-to-face in the actual environment to be able to provide the most appropriate and effective recommendations. Hands-on demonstration and coaching are available if my clients desire.
My clients describe me as friendly, enthusiastic, patient, adaptable, compassionate, empathetic, and passionate about my craft. You can read some testimonials here.
I am a mother of two boys and have worked with children in many settings for over 20 years as a professional nanny and in the classroom. My husband and I have also fostered infants and toddlers in our home over the years. Outside of work, I love being active in the outdoors. I spend time exercising and exploring New Zealand’s big backyard.
Jessica has worked with our little Patrick since he was 8 weeks old (now, 18 months). She’s been such a support - guiding us through his routine and changing needs including self-settling, solids, naps on the go, sleep regressions - you name it! And all whilst being attentive, caring and positive. I couldn’t recommend Jessica more highly; she brought a positive energy to our house every time she visited.
When Elizabeth turned 1-year old, I decided that we needed a change with our sleep situation. Jessica explained the different methods that suited our gentle approach of not wanting to leave our girl alone crying. When Elizabeth slept through the night for the first time, I felt like a new human being and it totally changed my mood and energy levels. We are not at the end of our sleep journey but with the tools Jessica has given us I am sure we will be able to handle any sleep regression. Thanks so much!
Jessica helped us develop a good night-time sleep pattern over the course of several weeks. She brings her years of experience as a mother, foster parent and maternity night nanny. Jessica was respectful of our parenting choices and gently made useful suggestions. She’s also a wonderful person to be around – friendly, energetic and kind!
Jessica gave us so many fantastic suggestions as well as a personalised sleep plan for our 8-month-old. She immediately gave us some simple but highly effective tips to help him self-soothe. She is very knowledgeable about routine setting and sleep cues.
Jessica has been fantastic, great advice.
I cannot recommend Jessica enough. Our wee lad has been sleeping through the night since she worked with us.
Can highly recommend Jess. She’s made it a lot easier for us as first-time parents. Thank you so much Jess!
As a sleep consultant, I work independently with families to explore varying techniques that help your baby discover, practice, and master their own independent sleep strategies. From newborn up to age 5, I solve family sleep issues at all stages of their sleep journey.
My philosophy is focused on the science of sleep to understand why a child sleeps the way they do. I consider both your parenting style and your child’s individual needs as part of my assessment and recommendations. There is no single solution. I experiment alongside parents to find what works in each unique situation. My goal is to leave you with the confidence and knowledge to handle future sleep issues with ease.
I am a certified professional that has completed training through an accredited, registered program. The program is evidence based, research led and is internationally recognised through the International Institute of Complementary Therapies.
I’m here to coach and educate you through this process. I will ensure you are on the right path and provide you a customised plan going forward. However, it’s up to you to implement the plan and keep consistent to achieve the best results.
Given every baby is unique and special, there is no set time frame. Each baby is so different, but if you are dedicated and consistent in applying my recommendations, then we will have your child settled into a great routine for them and you!
I’ve heard many parents say, “We have tried everything!” including recommendations that I give them. Where most struggle, is with a lack of understanding behind why children need to sleep the way they do. It takes a lot of patience and repetition. Whether it be a daytime nap, bedtime or even in the middle of the night, I can be there to observe your little one and give you guidance (or hands-on coaching if preferred) every step of the way.
During sleep training, crying seems to be a top concern from parents. Teaching your baby to sleep independently will likely involve some tears at some point along the way. Learning something new is hard work and will inevitably involve protest on your baby’s part. Transitioning to better sleep incurs some crying, but I’ll be there to provide new techniques to help soothe the cry, while the bond between you and your little one remains.
Due to safety considerations and other factors, I do not work with co-sleeping families. However, if you are room-sharing and your child has his or her own sleep space, I am happy to help you reach your sleep goals.
Get in touch by filling out the form and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can to discuss your family’s unique situation. Sleep Baby Sleep!
