Gentle Sleep Workshop for Parents with Children (School Age -12)

Nov 7 @ 9:45 am - 12:15 pm


Hello there, are you and your family struggling to sleep?.  Are you tired?. Do bedtimes take over an hour a night and sometimes result in tears and exasperation!. Have you noticed your child constantly:

  • Wakes up complaining and is irritable throughout the day.
  • Struggles with attention and motivation at school or homeschooling.
  • Suffers from constant colds and illnesses.

Your child may be sleep deprived or not getting enough deep sleep. Having a good night’s sleep is as important as diet and exercise, it’s not selfish to want a good’s nights sleep. Sleep is an essential part of your child’s mental and physical health. A good night’s sleep allows your child’s mind and body to rest and recover. This is especially important during the pandemic, Coronavirus has had a massive impact on our sleep.

Do you feel that sleep training ( I call it relearning) may be distressing or you’ve tried and given up? There are gentle ways to help that don’t involve crying it out.

Parent Sleep Workshop

Join me for a two hour online interactive workshop ( with time for questions)  to help your child RELEARN how to sleep. During the live workshop, I will share:

  • Simple Sleep Science, tips to help their 24-hour Cycle, ( Circadium Rthymn), the role of melatonin, and acknowledging your child may be a lark or owl. Here are some tips on foods that will help everyone sleep and foods not to eat near bedtime.

  • Exploring the impact on sleep due to your child’s temperament.
  • How daytime stress and the Coronavirus pandemic affect sleep?
  • How to address your child’s nighttime fears and anxieties? ( Your child will struggle/ resist going to bed if you have not addressed their fears).
  • How diet and screens may affect their sleep?
  • What to do if your child resists going to bed sleep and suffers from night awakenings and nightmares?
  • How to implement a consistent bedtime routine that can last throughout their development?.
  • How to work with ( not against)  your child to help everyone have a good night’s sleep with evidenced-based techniques such as Bedtime Fading. ( The theory behind this sleep training method is simple, children will fall asleep more easily if they are led through a series of predictable, pleasant, quiet, bedtime rituals, many parents give up or are not consistent, is that you?)

About Me

I am a parent and shared all the joys, up and downs from baby to adulthood. We survived all my mistakes to reach a place of compassion and deep connection. Combining motherhood with working hasn’t always been easy. However, the parents and children who let me into their lives during my 31 years in the NHS have been some of my greatest teachers. It was an honour and continues to be.

Up until two years ago, I worked in CAMHS ( In and outpatient Services)  with children and families with complex emotional and behavioural issues. I worked with children with complex sleep difficulties and disorders. In addition, I offered multi-agency consultations with Paediatricians, Social Workers, Health Visitors, and Teachers. I am also a trained facilitator in two evidenced based parenting courses, the Incredible Years and the Solihull Approach. My workshops integrate all my life experiences. I aim to offer a holistic approach that integrates compassion focussed strategies with simple neuroscience and attachment theory.

During the pandemic, I‘ve reflected on issues as I am sure you have too. For me, there’s been a strong message about offering support, compassion, and community.  This is a small offering, I look forward to sharing with you soon. With Love Catherine.
