For children in a bed

Aged 2 ½ years and up
"I’m delighted to say that after just 3 weeks (having endured some good times and some really tough times) we seem to have cracked it! Our child now settles down to bed at night with no fuss and stays in their own bed all night too."
Mummy and Daddy (to 9 year old)
who worked with Little Dreams Consulting (Bristol)

To hear the familiar sound of your child’s feet on your bedroom floor at 2am might have been endearing at first but the nightly interruptions can quickly wear everyone thin. Whether your child is awake for hours in the night or struggling to sleep in their own bed, it is too costly to keep up for long. From your child’s school life to your family’s wellbeing, so much depends upon what happens after everyone has said goodnight.


Once a sleep situation has endured for years without a change, it can be difficult to imagine that anything might turn it around. But we’ve seen that transformation time after time.

For our children, getting the sleep they need doesn’t only give them more energy. The parents we have worked with tell us that the improved sleep is giving their children more confidence – and they are enjoying a happier family life too.

How my sleep consultation works

It’s worth noting that what I do is not the same as “sleep training”. Instead we use an evidence-based approach that has helped so many parents to make overtired tantrums and bedtime battles a problem of the past.

If you are happy for me to help your child more directly (dependent upon age) then we can speak with them over a video call (or send little videos to them). This can help them feel reassured about the sleep plan and can help them to take ownership of their own role in the process. 

All of my consultations are tailored to your family. So while I outline the support you’ll receive from me here, my advice will be entirely specific to your child and your family’s situation.


A preliminary assessment

allows me to understand your child’s sleep patterns so that I can pinpoint why they are not sleeping well. I won’t just consider their time in bed but everything that could be a factor from diet to daylight and from nursery or school life to the times when they eat and see friends.


A meticulous and tailor-made sleep plan

will give you my comprehensive and highly specific recommendations for how you can help your child to form new habits.


A private 90-120 minute consultation

to discuss the plan and answer any of your questions you might have. This takes place over video conference and can involve your child depending on their age. I may also be able offer home consults depending on your location (there is an additional travel charge for this).


Telephone support

when it is needed during the first two weeks after the consultation. Usually lasting around 15 minutes each, these calls give you an opportunity to ask me more questions and for us to address any setbacks you may have faced.


Three weeks of unlimited email support and sleep log analysis

so that I can answer any other questions that come up. Our sleep log analysis throughout the 3 weeks will also inform us of any tweaks to the sleep plan that we might need to make as your child’s habits change.


Text support

is an optional one-time remote service in which I will be available to answer any questions or concerns you have during bedtime and for the hours following. The cost is £50 for bedtime till 10pm availability and £75 for between bedtime and midnight availability (in addition to the cost for the sleep consultancy).

Usually parents see a dramatic change in the first 2-3 weeks. That was the experience of these parents we have worked with. I will also make sure you are well versed in my methods, so that if your child’s situation changes in a year’s time or you come up against a set back, you will have the knowledge you need to create a solution. 

The cost of the sleep package for children in a bed (between 2.5 and 10 years old) is £345.
