I'm a sleep expert who specialises in:
Hello, I’m Maryanne Taylor and I am a Child Sleep Consultant. Sleep is a necessity for the well-being of a family. I help tired families by providing them with the tools they need to get their child’s sleep on track. That means that the parents finally also get the rest that they need themselves. If you are having trouble with the sleeping habits of your baby or child, please do give me a call or drop me a line at Greatvine for some caring, supportive and expert advice.
I am a certified Gentle Sleep Coach, training in the US under Kim West, LCSW-C (The Sleep Lady®). This specialist programme involves over 50 hours of training, an exam and participation in on-going advanced training. I chose this programme as I found it was the most comprehensive available, and I support the ethos of Gentle Sleep techniques. I believe that teaching a child the skills of falling asleep independently and the ability to resettle themselves to sleep are some of the greatest gifts you can give your child (and yourself!).
Each child is unique, special and of course no two children are the same. Different issues may be affecting their sleep both during the day and at night. It is therefore essential that each child and each sleep problem is addressed on an individual basis. For younger babies of up to 6 months of age, I can help to 'shape' their sleep, by providing you with the tools to put the baby on the right track from the beginning, with clear advice on schedules and sleep patterns.
For older babies and children up to age 6, I can provide specialist strategies for coping with the sleep problems; suggestions for a time framework for your child’s day; expert guides as to how much sleep your child needs. If the problem is more detailed and requires a longer process to get your child back on track with their sleep, you can take a look at my website to get further details of the personalised sleep plans I build and my other packages at www.childsleepworks.co.uk.
I am originally from Dublin (Ireland) and I now live in North London with my husband and three young children. Having had a baby with severe reflux which caused significant sleep problems for some time, I understand first-hand how a lack of sleep can impact on the whole family! From this point, I started to develop a keen interest in sleep issues in children, and eventually decided my career path definitely lay in helping other tired families get the sleep they really needed. I believe that each family’s requirements are different when it comes to sleep coaching, and what works for one family does not necessarily work for another. Sleep problems can occur at any stage of childhood. I will work with you with the support and understanding you need during a difficult time to provide advice and techniques that allow your child – and indeed you – get the sleep you all need. I look forward to being able to help you on your way to good sleep for the whole family.
