Child Sleep Works, Maryanne Taylor

Originally from Dublin, Ireland, I now live in North London with my husband and 3 young children.  Having had a baby with severe reflux which caused significant sleep problems for some time, I understand first-hand how a lack of sleep can impact on the whole family! From this point, I started to develop a keen interest in sleep issues in children, and eventually decided my career path definitely lay in helping other tired families get the sleep they need.

I became a Gentle Sleep Coach,  training under Kim West (The Sleep Lady®) in the US.  I have also completed advanced training with the International Maternity Institute to become a Certified Maternity & Child Sleep Consultant.  I am a member of the British Sleep Society and the International Association for Sleep Consultants.  As well as seeing client, I also deliver many sleep workshops and talks; write articles about children’s sleep, and am a regular contributor on various social media sites.

I believe that encouraging a child to learn the skill of falling asleep independently and the ability to resettle themselves to sleep is one of the greatest gifts a parent can give their child (and themselves!).  Each family’s requirements are different when it comes to sleep coaching, not least because all children are different and sleep problems can be caused by any number of issues at any stage of childhood.  Through care, love and gentle methods, I work with parents to help their child – and indeed themselves – get the sleep they need.  Tel: 07760 252750   Email:   Web:
