Libby’s aim to promote good sleep practice in the pre-school age group by helping parents to establish good bedtimes routines and to provide advice on how to manage any sleep difficulties that may occur using a holistic, gentle, family centred approach.

Sleep is vital for the health and wellbeing of all the family.

Appointments can be arranged anytime between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm.

The benefits of good sleep

Babies and children need good sleep in order to aid growth and brain development. Recent studies have shown that good sleep improves children’s appetites, enhances their intellectual ability and lifts their mood.

Good sleep is vital for parents. Tiredness effects mood, the ability to cope with parenting and also the ability to function during the day. Tiredness can also effect family functioning and relationships.

Good sleep is vital for siblings. Being kept awake or woken up by disruptive younger siblings with poor sleep patterns, can result in siblings becoming tired and unable to cope well with daily activities, school work and relationships.

Learning good sleep habits at an early age is a vital skill for life!
