...and I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you a little bit about me, my story and how this came to be.
My husband and I moved from the UK to Qatar in March 2013 and in November 2014, I became a mum to my amazing son, Joseph. Being a mum was extremely rewarding, however there was a price to pay and that was sleep deprivation.
For the first two and a half years of my son’s life none of us had a good night’s sleep. In March 2017 we made the decision to sleep train Joseph. I was utterly exhausted, often very emotional, and sometimes irrational. I could not think straight, I could not see straight, and it got to the point where I just could not take it anymore.
I will openly admit that I had some very dark moments whilst I was sleep deprived, and this was all on top of the fact that when Joseph was 11 months old I was diagnosed with PTSD as a result of an extremely unpleasant birth experience. Sleep deprivation exacerbated everything.
I felt at my wits’ end.
As soon as I had made the commitment to start sleep training, I searched online for a sleep consultant in Abu Dhabi, where we lived at the time, but I had no results. We ended up hiring a wonderful lady that helped us, but she was from Dubai.
As soon as Joseph was sleeping well (and in turn I was sleeping well) I realised that I wanted to bring the gift of sleep to everyone I could! I wanted to create a change and help other struggling parents. Especially those in Abu Dhabi who did not have access to sleep consultants in their city.
I went to Florida in 2017 and completed my training to become a Sleep Sense™ Consultant, under the watchful eye of the creator of the program, Dana Obelman. You can learn more about the Sleep Sense™ method here.
Since then, I have helped nearly 300 families to achieve their goals - namely consistently good nights’ sleep! I now specialise in working with people of all ages, from newborn to adult, both online globally, and in person throughout Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
Bringing this gift to people around the world is my calling and the opportunity to help others brings me pure joy. I’ve well and truly ‘been there’, as a sleep deprived parent and, later, as a client of the adult sleep course. I am now qualified to help and resolve sleep issues, putting my personal experience to great use. As well as developing my professional expertise having worked with so many families to empower them to successfully and gently sleep train their little ones to improve their sleep.
