Private Consultations for families with sleep issues

Not only do we offer professional certification to become a child sleep consultant, we also offer private consults.

Private in home or telephone consultations are available with either the Founder of the Institute, Kel Whittaker (Pioneer Sensitive Sleep Consultant) or one of the talented Institute Graduates. Consultations come with complimentary 3-week support follow up period to ensure families are not left to feel alone through out the process. 


What's the difference with the Sensitive Sleep Consulting way?

We are there for you every step of the way. Our service is never just a once off call and goodbye goodluck. We strongly encourage regular communication between client and consultant to see you through each phase/step in your plan. That's because our approach to work is always what's best for the child's timing, not ours.


We also don't base plans on rigid rules. You'll never hear us tell you not to pick up baby for a cuddle.  We understand attachment theory, we understand sleep and we understand how to put them both together beautifully.  Too often, parents who do not feel controlled crying is right for their child, are forced to silently suffer with sleep deprivation with an unhelpful mantra of "This Too Shall Pass". Enter your Sensitive Sleep Consultant!

"Sensitive Sleep Consultants aim to sensitively navigate weary parents to a place of hope and restore sleep in the family, without compromising your parenting values"


Although we specialise in Attachment Parenting Sleep approaches, we do happily work with ALL parenting styles, and take on a sensitive approach to meet your needs. We do not advocate cry it out. We do however understand that at times children express themselves with crying, which we aim to respond to appropriately with respect to your values.
