OUR HAPPY FAMILIES

For several years, Karen has been providing assistance for families to help their babies self settle. Our baby sleep training program combined with a holistic approach is instrumental in restoring a restful nights to many families.

We were absolutely broken and wrecked until Karen completely turned our life, health and well being around – most importantly she changed our baby’s life too!  We enlisted Karen when our bub was 12 months old, my only regret is that we didn’t seek her help sooner

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.
