Sleep Therapy Programs
Sleep therapy treats problems and teaches independent sleeping, implementing healthy routines and sleeping habits. The method for each child is carefully calculated taking all parameters into consideration including development, cognitive ability and parenting style. The adult programs consist of lifestyle changes, sleep hygiene and careful monitoring of sleep patterns. Following the intake treatment involves meditation and psychotherapy that alleviates the symptoms of anxiety, PTSD or daily stressors that may overwhelm normal cognitive and neurological coping mechanisms.
Most parents have tried every method and read everything before they arrive at Baby Base. As a trained sleep professional I have years of experience dealing with children's sleep problems. The childs sleep issues are viewed not only from a health viewpoint, but with an objective eye treating any other issues such as diet, development or behaviour that may be influencing a child's sleep problems.

Do you need to see my child?
In most cases I try to, after initial analysis I work via the parents, guiding them on a daily basis until we have reached the goal.
Do you do night visits for extreme cases?
During the intake period, when the child needs intense treatment I am present in the beginning of the night to assist with bedtime. Video screening or actual night visits are sometimes carried out in cases where a child has fractured sleep and sporadic awakenings throughout the night.
Will I have to do controlled crying?
A. I match your parenting styles with my methods. During the initial consultation I take considerable time to assess which method of therapy should be used. My most frequently used methods DO NOT use controlled crying.
