What we can
do for you
It may not feel like it at times, but your child wants to sleep! Good quality sleep is a basic need, vital for physical and cognitive development and emotional well-being. All children have both the need, and the ability, to sleep well – it’s just that some require more help than others to realise their sleep potential. The good news is that teaching your child the skills they need to achieve great sleep does not need to be an ordeal for you or your little one.
Friends, relatives and the internet are awash with advice as to what you “should” do to overcome your child’s sleep challenges, but there is no one method that works for every child. You may be overwhelmed with information and unsure where to start, or you may have tried so many different methods that you have been left believing that nothing will work for your child. Little Sleep Stars can show you the way to fantastic sleep, using gentle methods to create a bespoke sleep plan that will be the cornerstone of achieving both fast and lasting results.
If you are experiencing:
- bedtime battles;
- frequent/multiple night-wakings;
- early-rising (waking for the day pre-6am);
- a dependency on feeding or rocking to sleep;
- short or non-existent naps;
- co-sleeping out of desperation rather than choice;
or any other sleep-related challenge, book your free evaluation call today and take the first step on the path to the rest your family deserves.
Practice hours are designed to meet the needs of busy families with daytime, evening and weekend appointments available. Using the latest in web-based video-conferencing I work with clients throughout the UK and internationally.

Can You Sleep-Train Without Crying?
One of the things that nearly every parent asks me about at the start of our journey together is how bad the crying is going to be. Many are hoping it will be a tear-free experience. Most are expecting it's going to be horrific! The conversation around crying is more detailed than people generally expect - and some of what I have to say is surprising. But don't just take my word for it! In this article, clinical psychologist Dr. Rebekah Olive discusses crying - what it means, why it isn't all the same and how our own experiences influence our response when it happens.Continue reading...

Helping Children with Sleep Anxiety
I am often asked how to help a child who is exhibiting signs of anxiety around their sleep. The first thing I always want to understand is whether the child is anxious in other aspects of their daily life or if the issue pertains only to sleep. Clearly a different approach is required for a child who shows little-to-no signs of anxiety until bedtime approaches versus one who exhibits more widespread and persistent anxiety affecting other aspects of their daily life.Continue reading...
I can't recommend Lauren highly enough. Following a recommendation via a friend we got in touch with Lauren, 2 years in and sleep is still very inconsistent. To note our little girl has an underlying medical condition which may have an impact on her sleep but Lauren took this on board and continued to give us helpful, considered and logical support and we have 100% seen an improvement. Lauren is calm and a great active listener. I felt reassured after our first call, never rushed or on the clock. I have highly recommended Lauren to my mum chums and will continue to seek her guidance as and when we need it. Lauren makes you feel empowered as a first time parent and supports in you taking control of the situation when for us we were at a point of feeling completely out of control! Thank you!
It was a joy to speak to Lauren who helped us to get our little boy to sleep in his cot during the day and become more settled and start sleeping through at night. Her straight talking no nonsense, yet encouraging and gentle approach is very welcome! Would wholeheartedly recommend using her services.
My daughter who is 15 months had never ever slept through the night...often waking multiple times and taking a long time to settle. Only a week after making small changes with Lauren's help she is now sleeping brilliantly! Lauren is compassionate, thorough, straight talking and extremely supportive whether by email or telephone. Highly recommended.
For two whole years I was a walking zombie, until I cracked and enlisted Lauren to help me to work on a plan to increase our toddler's night time and nap time sleeping. Within 3 days she was sleeping through the night and by the end of the week her naps had extended to 2 hours. All this without a single "cry it out" moment. I can't recommend Lauren or her approach enough. Life changing!
My 7 month old son was waking every two hours for a feed and I was beyond exhausted, and anxiety about my return to my demanding career was mounting quickly! After a terrible night and yet another day of painful naps I had had enough and booked a package with Lauren. Within a week the nights had improved to one, sometimes two wakings and he is now sleeping through the night. Naps continued to be a struggle but Lauren supported us through it all, really going above and beyond, empowering my husband and I to make the right choices for our family and giving us the confidence to stay the course whenever we had a wobble. I cannot recommend Little Sleep Stars more highly. You may think you can't afford a sleep consultant, but I think any tired parent is worth it - I'd have paid four times her fee for a decent night's sleep! My only regret is that I didn't realise I didn't have to be a tired Mama earlier. Thank you Lauren!
It was with some reticence that I contacted Lauren as I thought that I could "fix" my 10 month old's poor sleeping patterns myself. I did try some things but was confused by the huge quantities of sometimes conflicting information I could find online. Our daughter was taking over an hour to go to sleep for naps and sleep time and was very distressed. I wanted a gentle approach and that's what Lauren gave us and now we are all happier. Our once tricky sleeper now sleeps all night and goes to sleep herself after a kiss and cuddle goodnight from us. It's bliss! Thank you, thank you, thank you Lauren!
