40 Winks Sleep Consultant

Because sleeping like a baby is the dream

My name is Kate and I'm a sleep consultant based in Surrey. I am an occupational therapist by background and have worked in the NHS and private sectors for over 13 years. After having our first child we battled to form a routine and could not get her to sleep. We used a sleep consultant to support us through the process of getting our daughter to create healthy sleep habits and she slept through on night three. I was so interested in the research related to sleep coaching and decided to gain my qualification in 2019. I am passionate about supporting parents through the process of sleep training and have first hand experience of how daunting the whole process can be.

  • Are the parents/carers on the same page in terms of what they would like to achieve

  • Does your child have any medical conditions that may impair their sleep

  • Is the family ready to make adjustments to support the sleep coaching process

BSc(Hons) Occupational Therapy

OCN Level 3 Gentle Sleep Training

About

I was born in South Africa and attended university in Cape Town. I moved to London in 2009 to gain professional experience and I've never left. I met my husband here, and we have three beautiful children, Madison, Brody and Jordan. 

Madi suffered with colic as a baby and we later found out that she had a cows milk allergy which was causing her discomfort through my breast milk. At 8 months we were co-sleeping and Madi would soothe all night breast feeding, which we later realised was her sleep association. Working with our sleep consultant changed our lives and Madi is still an excellent sleeper today at 4 years old. 

I used the skills we had learned from our sleep consultant and trained Brody at 4 months when we moved him into his own room, and have recently started to implement a sleep plan with Jordy, which is going very well. It was empowering to know that we could do it on our own and I still maintained my night feeds without disrupting their routines.    

After completing the sleep coaching course I firmly believe that there is a sleep training technique suitable for every child. Each one is different and can range from gentle cuddling and safe co-sleeping approaches to controlled crying. It's about finding what works for you. 

Throughout my career I have always enjoyed working with people. I believe that every child is unique and therefore I follow a client centred approach. We work together to determine the causes of disrupted sleep and then create a suitable sleep plan together. 

I had so many questions when I first embarked on trying to understand what sleep training is. So please know, I am open and honest with my clients and I'm always happy to answer any questions you may have. 

This is a non-judgemental platform, and I am always happy to help.
