Sleep Gems provide a holistic approach to parenting support. I offer professional, supportive and practical advice to families experiencing difficulty managing their babies and young children in the comfort of their own homes.
We offer guidance and hands on support in:
– Sleep routines and settling strategies
– Feeding issues and introduction to solids
– Early learning and play ideas
– Behaviour management and guidance
– Home safety
At sleep gems we acknowledge the sometimes difficult nature of parenting and work in partnership with the whole family to pace positive changes according to what feels comfortable to individuals involved.
We believe that parents are the experts in caring for and managing their own children’s individual strengths and abilities, but occasionally need some outside support when children challenge us with unsettled behaviours such as sleep patterns, feeding issues and tantrums.
Our practice follows the guidelines used in current “Attachment Theories”, where the relationships and mental health of the baby/child and parents are being constantly considered.
Lisa has had over 25 years experience in the early childhood profession. She began training as a nurse, and specialized as a Mothercraft nurse, which involved educating new parents on all aspects of caring for their newborns, infants and young children.
Having children of her own, Lisa then spent many years working and coordinating in childcare centres.
In the last 15 years Lisa has perfected her expertise in sleep settling and early parenting support working at the Queen Elizabeth Centre and alongside Maternal Child Health nurses. She has vast experience in both a sleep-school envrionment and visiting clients in their homes, working with clients from many different social, economic and cultural backgrounds. Lisa has always been the first port-of-call for her friends and family needing advice on settling their young children.
