A 6 week intensive to take you from multiple night wakings and sleep deprivation to deep, restful sleep for you and your child.
If your child is
- aged between 1-4 years and
- waking multiple times per night,
This program is for you!
If you resonate with a gentle, responsive approach to parenting and are looking for a sleep solution that will not compromise your values,
This program is for you!
If you’ve had enough of feeling exhausted and are ready to climb out of that sleep deprived haze, let’s transform this over the next 6 weeks.
In this program we’ll be looking at the role feelings play in determining how soundly our children sleep.
I’m sure you’ve experienced for yourself that when you go to bed with big feelings such as feeling angry about an argument, stressed about money, anxious about starting a new job etc, even though you might also be really tired, you probably don’t experience very restful sleep. Instead, you might find yourself tossing and turning, taking really long time to fall asleep and waking up multiple times through the night.
Compare that to the times you’ve had big feelings but been able to let go of them before bed either through talking, crying or laughing with someone you love or journalling etc. Perhaps at those times you would have felt much more relaxed in your body and slept much more deeply and restfully?
And it’s the same for our children! Although they have feelings about different things such as being frustrated that they couldn’t yet crawl or walk or hop, or disappointed that they couldn’t have that cookie they wanted or angry that their sibling broke their block building.
Our children have natural ways of expressing and letting go of their feelings too which also include crying, talking and laughter.
Feelings are not bad. Feelings are a part of everyday life. The trouble with sleep time comes when we are trying to fight feelings rather than be friends with them.
Often, we get in the way of our children being able to express and let go of what they need to in order to relax for sleep. So instead of supporting them with opportunties for healing crying or laughter, it’s most common in our society to help our children numb their feelings instead.
Again, let’s relate it back to ourselves. When you’re angry, sad or stressed how do you numb or distract from your feelings?
Some of the most common ways include food, drinks and movement (such as exercise or keeping busy, never sitting still).
And what are some of the most common ways we use to help our children fall asleep?
YES! Feeding (breastfeeding, bottle feeding, dummy) and movement like rocking or carrying.
These are just different versions of the adult ways we use to numb our feelings.
When our children do not have enough opportunitites to express and let go of their feelings during the day, this energy will stay in the body and build up over time, causing more and more tension and agitation in the body and making it harder and harder for our children to feel relaxed and sleep soundly.
In this program we’ll discover how you can work with and support your child with their natural abilities to express and let go of feelings instead of fighting them.

What if I’m not comfortable with my children crying or expressing anger?

I will teach you how to hold a loving space for all of your child’s emotions and how to process your own thoughts and feelings around this.
If you are not willing for your children to cry or express anger, this may not be the program for you.
