Sleep therapist counselling
Sleep counselling is a process that aims to help parents facilitate good quality sleep for their child by guiding the baby or toddler using the right methods. This involves several areas: good sleep rituals for newborns, application of sleep school methods for babies, sleep problems in toddlers and preschoolers. Sleep counselling can also be very helpful for families with hyperactive or autistic children.
A sleep therapist should be consulted if the child consistently wakes up several times every night and this affects both your and the child’s daily quality of life. Counselling is based on the principle that every child is different and the needs of every family can also be very individual. During the counselling session, the causes of the child’s sleep problems are determined in cooperation with the family, and the parents are given practical skills and knowledge so that the whole family can have a quality rest.
A sleep therapist can be consulted with a newborn baby. In the first three months of life, the baby’s sleep is irregular and it is wise to let the baby explore the world at its own pace. It is most reasonable to start sleep training at around six months. However, if your child suffers from poor sleep later, it is worth coming to sleep counselling even then. Katrin works with children up to 10 years old, though applying the principles of healthy sleep is beneficial at any age.
Before the consultation, we ask you to fill out a sleep questionnaire
Please note! A sleep plan cannot be designed for a child with a single counselling session.
