I don’t use the term ‘miracle worker’ lightly but that’s how I describe Cheryl to other new parents. In a very short space of time, she helped us drastically improve the sleep of our 11 months old. He went from needing a lot of help to get to sleep and waking up multiple times a night, to going down easily and sleeping through. Her techniques were very gentle and easy to follow, and she was always only a text or a phone call away (and always responds quickly). Thanks to Cheryl, the sleep of our family has been restored and we are very grateful. I wouldn’t hesitate to reach out to her again for help and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Cheryl helped us through one of our most challenging times. You don’t realise how torturous sleep deprivation is until it becomes your reality. What made Cheryl stand out to me was her care and kindness towards my husband and I and most importantly our princess. The other stand out was Cheryl’s ongoing support throughout the first year when things seem to change overnight. Cheryl changed our lives, we went from waking up every 20-40 mins to once/twice a night within a few days. I couldn’t recommend Cheryl more highly. X

After 8 months of walking our son up and down the hallways in the middle of the night to get him to fall asleep, we realised, something had to change. We were at the point of total exhaustion and frustration and didn’t know where to turn.

Cheryl was referred to us by a friend. We had an initial consultation and found Cheryl to be gentle, sensitive and warm. This is so important when going through this process.

I would recommend Cheryl because she is so calm, reassuring and knowledgeable. She answers your questions quickly, and is always available to chat.

Bringing Cheryl in to coach us has changed our lives and restored a sense of normalcy. Our whole family is more rested, and it’s also given us the confidence as parents to know what we’re doing.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, we honestly were at our wits end and you have completely turned it around.

Very few people in life have a special quality, the kind of warmth that instantly makes you feel calm, Cheryl definitely has that something special. My husband and I call her Mary Poppins because she is quite frankly a little magical.

Our little baby girl Sadie was 6 months old when we reached out to Cheryl.

Sadie was going through a very big sleep regression and was waking every single hour, on the hour and then refusing to go back down, we become so desperate for sleep after a month of this and would do anything to get her to sleep, all the bad habits rocking, feeding etc… nothing was working.

We wanted to fix it but we couldn’t let her cry, it’s just not something we are comfortable with.

Cheryl was literally the only consultant I found that ACTUALLY doesn’t use “controlled crying” or “cry it out” methods, she/we stayed in the room THE WHOLE TIME and Sadie would have never have felt abandoned or left alone but was also being taught to sleep.

We got Cheryl in for 3 nights and after the 3 nights Sadie was able to self settle happily, something that she was NEVER able to do prior. The change in our lives is enormous, sleep deprivation is not to be underestimated, we were second guessing ourselves, lost our confidence and were just really in a daze.

Life is very different and Cheryl helped us get all of this back, I would recommend her in a heartbeat.

Sadie now self settles every single time and sleeps through the night, we have had further regressions and I’m always in touch with Cheryl who guides us through and it’s over quicker than usual.

This is something that you won’t regret, Cheryl is incredible and our whole family (including our dog) miss her!

I mean who doesn’t want a little help from Mary Poppins herself?

A friend of ours recommended we get in touch with Cheryl to help us with our 12 Month old’s sleep. We were booked to go to Tresillian in two weeks, but we felt that the personalised ongoing help in our own home would be worth the cost. Our daughter has always been rocked to sleep and then carefully transplanted to her bed at night and daysleeps would be in the car or in my arms. At night she would wake several times. We were exhausted and also about to start back at work and needed our sleep. We were against letting her cry it out and with Cheryl’s gentle approach and our pace, we managed to assure our daughter we were not abandoning her and that sleep is a good thing. She now sleeps 11 -12 hours a night! We are still in contact with Cheryl to work on the daysleeps and she also assures us that she’s available with any future sleep hiccups…yay! Thanks for all your help Cheryl.

The Peddies

When we called Cheryl, we were completely and utterly exhausted. Our son was four and a half months old and waking every two hours during the night. In addition to the sleeping issues, he had also become reliant on me “assisting” him to sleep with rocking, dummies, music, swaddling, patting, bouncing – you name it – we did it! It would often take up to an hour for us to get him to sleep and there were always tears.

From the minute Cheryl arrived, we felt at ease. A cross between Super Nanny and Mary Poppins, she took the time to understand our sons sleeping arrangements; his feeding patterns; and his routine.  She made it clear that sleep is not just a “mothers” issue, and involved my husband right from the start.  Within a few days of being on Cheryl’s plan – Max was not only self settling, but sleeping from 6:30pm until 5:30am.  I felt like a human again! Every time Max goes to sleep I think of Cheryl and how grateful I am.  It was the best money we have spent and I cannot recommend her highly enough. My only regret was that we didn’t see her sooner!

Cheryl has been such a wonderful help in teaching our baby good sleep habits, helping us navigate our first year of parenting. She has helped our daughter learn to sleep through the night, after we battled through months of night feeding.
She has been responsive whenever we have had issues, and has been fantastic with checking in even when we haven’t asked this of her.
I’m so glad we were referred by friends to Cheryl.
Nothing has been too much trouble for Cheryl!

Belinda

Firstly – thank you! We are grateful for your guidance and achieving the unthinkable – sleeping through the night! The gift of sleep is the greatest gift of all for a parent. Your patience, steady guidance whilst we were severely sleep deprived, experience and passion for what you do is so evident in all that you do. Your night of respite and helping our little one drop her night feed was life changing for our family. thanks for everything,

Terry and Mike

Cheryl entered our lives at a time when we were filled with sleep deprivation. Our 18 month old wasn’t sleeping and we were in a cycle filled with bad habits. From the start, we felt Cheryl was on our side. she listened to us, observed with no judgement, gave us professional and rational advice and supported us from day one. always available, a phone call away, she would coach us, praise us and help us. we worked at a realistic timeframe and within two weeks of sticking to the program, we were (and still are) thrilled at the results. our daughter is self-settling and sleeping through – and enjoying her sleep! We are also sleeping better!! Thank you Cheryl- you really are a miracle sleep coach!!!
