CONNECT TO SLEEP
If you are exhausted and struggling with your child's sleep issues, I am here to help.
Having amassed over 24 years experience in the field of autism, I have encountered many different sleep issues. In 2021 I decided to further my training and specialise in the area of sleep for children with additional needs aged 3 years and above.
As a mother to an autistic child who struggled with sleep for the first three years of her life, I intimately understand the challenges faced by families in similar situations. What sets me apart is my personal connection to autism, as I am autistic myself, enabling me to truly empathize with both parents and children alike. Unlike any other sleep consultant in Ireland, I provide tailored methods that are specifically designed to cater to the unique needs of each child, ensuring a comfortable and effective approach. My service is characterized by its non-judgmental and supportive nature, recognizing that every parent's journey is unique.
As an Additional Needs Sleep Practitioner, I not only bring my sleep science training but also my extensive knowledge of autistic strengths, challenges and learning styles. I also bring a wealth of knowledge in the area of anxiety, which is a common stressor for sleep disturbances. I am a fully accredited sleep practitioner, trained by The Sleep Charity in the UK and a member of the British Sleep Society.
I have created a specialist parent support programme, The Connect to Sleep Parent Support Hub, to empower parents with the information, strategies and support they need to enact real change for their loved ones.My methods prioritize the child's well-being, moving at a pace that feels comfortable for both the child and the parent. If you're seeking expert guidance and compassionate support for your child's sleep struggles, I am here to help, as the first and only dedicated additional needs sleep consultant in Ireland.
