I was convinced Karen would tell me there was nothing she could do to help us with Zac’s sleeping. I felt like we’d tried everything. So I was amazed, one session with Karen down, Zac was sleeping in his cot for the first time during the day. Thank you Karen!

Trish and Zac, 10 months

Karen had my daughter sleeping through on night 1 and self-settling without controlled crying. I am pleased to announce now back in NZ her amazing sleep has continued she has not had one night feed and if she wakes in the night has been putting herself back to sleep within a couple of minutes.

Alannah and Harper, 6 months

Her ability to recognise a baby’s protest from a serious need is what I believe is her magic touch. Karen’s approachable and non judgemental interactions have always left me with so much more confidence and enjoyment from my child.
