Since meeting in 2007, we have formed a strong friendship and found a mutual professional interest in supporting parents overcome sleep challenges with their babies and children. We created Blissful Bambino in 2012 based on our passion and joint expertise.
We both feel very passionately that sleep coaching does not have to be a distressing process and that goals can be achieved by following a gentle and nurturing path. This is much easier to achieve when the parents are provided with expert support that is hands on and there for them day and night. Through our professions and personal experiences of motherhood we believe this is a much needed service. We want to share our knowledge with families and help them develop the confidence to achieve a contented family.
"They both have children of their own and their advice comes from a balance of experience and instinct"
I am the Co-Founder of Blissful Bambino and been working in my role as a Sleep Consultant since October 2012. I have achieved Level 3 OCN in sleep coaching with the MNT. I am also a member of the International Association of Child Sleep Consultants (www.iacsc.com). I have recently completed a course with Warwick University about the developing mind/brain of babies, theories of attachment and the parental role. I am also a qualified Nursery Nurse and Nanny (NNEB). I have worked as a childcare professional for over twenty years, both in nurseries and with individual families.
As a childcare professional I have worked as a nanny with individual families, as a nursery nurse within childcare settings and I was then the deputy manager of a nursery for four years and left that job to have my first child in 2002.
Through my career I have built up a wealth of experience and knowledge about babies and children, their behaviour, sleeping habits and personal relations. Specifically, I have spent a lot of time advising parents on how to achieve positive sleep associations and good sleeping habits within their children. I love being able to help families overcome issues they may face and I believe that 'consistency is key' to achieve success.

I have recently completed a course with Warwick University about the developing mind/brain of babies, theories of attachment and the parental role. I am also a qualified Midwife (BSc Honours) and worked in my role as a community midwife for thirteen years.
As a midwife I worked for the NHS, mainly in the community looking after couples during pregnancy, in labour, birth and in the postnatal period. I have spent time preparing parents for childbirth and parenthood, by leading antenatal preparation sessions to large groups. I have also helped hundreds of parents with those early weeks at home, providing advice on sleep patterns, settling and soothing their newborns and helping them adjust to their new family dynamics.
Since having my first child in 2011 I became so passionate about sleep coaching the 'gentle' way. I have tried and tested all of the techniques that we use and I believe that this helps me support parents with understanding and compassion. I love empowering parents and giving them the confidence to achieve their goals.
We both feel very passionately about helping parents resolve any issues they present to us and turning negatives into positives. We know that with time, consistency and support most hurdles can be overcome.
