Welcome to Vickie Sleep Consultant
Hi, I’m Vickie a certified sleep consultant as well as a qualified Nanny with over 20 years of experience with all ages of babies and children. My passion is and always has been helping to support families with children.
I am also blessed to be a Mummy to Girl Boy twins, it was the sleep deprivation that I faced with my two that inspired me to train as a sleep consultant and set up Vickie Sleep Consultant.
I offer virtual sleep plans and support for families with children 0-6 years who are facing sleep struggles. Each sleep plan is bespoke and tailored to your family and your individual needs. I don’t use or believe in the “cry it out” method. All my methods that I use are gentle, responsive and supportive, ensuring that the secure attachment bond is nurtured and maintained.

Suffering These Common Sleep Struggles
Bedtime BattlesDifficulty settling to sleep at bedtime can bring about challenging behaviour but this is often caused by over tiredness. We will help you to overcome this problem.
Waking at NightWe all wake in the night and we’re not trying to stop that. What we are aiming for is the ability to resettle back to sleep without the need for someone or something to do it for the baby or child every time.
Not NappingShort naps, a lack of naps and nap resistance are common challenges. We will explore the most suitable approach to help your child get restorative sleep in the optimal intervals.

Sleep Training FAQ
Sleep training is often misunderstood to be a process that requires leaving babies to cry…This is not true. Sleep training responsively means assisting a baby or child and meeting all their needs while helping them to achieve the best sleep they are capable of at any given stage in their development.
It works! The only thing that may let you down is failure to consistently implement the strategies provided. If sickness, travel or other life events disrupt progress, you will still have the education and tools to get back on track when you are ready. If I see any reason to suggest your child may need a different type of expertise such as medical, I will disclose this upon receipt of your intake form.
A behavioural intervention can resolve a baby or young child’s sleep challenges in as little as 1-3 nights or it could take 4-6 weeks. Most families see a vast improvement within the first 7-10 days. There are a number of variables that can determine the speed of progress, particularly consistency and we will discuss this during our consultation to ensure you get the best results.
All babies (and young children) cry. It is how they communicate. Anyone offering a no-cry sleep training is suggesting your baby stops communicating! We help you to read the cries and understand what the needs are and we offer suitable responses so you are never ignoring any cries.
100% of the families I work with achieve the results they are looking for when they commit to consistently implementing the strategies taught to them and using my support.
