My child is at school and is coming into my bed almost every night. We are not getting quality sleep. Can you help with this?
We work with many children that suffer sleep associated anxieties. Therapies often include cognitive, behavioural, sleep hygiene and techniques to help children stop frequent waking and fall asleep faster.
My doctor prescribed Melatonin for my child. Is this normally the best option? We prefer not to give medications.
Studies show Melatonin is over prescribed and better suited for children with neurodevelopmental disorders. Melatonin can be an effective short term measure used in conjunction with other therapies but we prefer to begin treatment without it. Mostly always kids learn to sleep using therapy alone.
What is the advantage of booking a 4-week sleep consultation program with you?

We have found our clients have greater sleep success when they get consistent professional support from us. Our goal for you is to get you or your loved one sleeping for life!
We have to lie beside our 8 year old because she has so much anxiety about falling asleep. She worries about it and it is getting worse. Now it takes at least two hours and we feel frustrated.
Sleep anxiety is one of the causes of insomnia and it means falling asleep takes a long time and you become their sleep association. Often sleep is disrupted during the night and they rely on you being near instead of being able to resettle independently.
Our Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia helps your child develop new neural pathways to be confident in falling asleep and returning to sleep.
Our child looks tired all of the time. We have been contacted by the school to say he is sleepy in class. We have a routine but we don't know what the actual problem is.
Globally teachers are seeing an increase in children with sleep-related issues that cause problems with concentration, learning, and sometimes in behaviour. Stress has increased since Covid and affects sleep. Thankfully good sleep can be taught and maintained.
