A Holistic Approach

The certification process to become a Holistic Peadiatric Sleep Coach is a bit different from the more
widely available sleep training certification programs.

Holisitic practices by nature are ones which are focused on “wholes” or relating to entire factors
affecting outcome rather than looking at individual parts to treat. An example for instance is the
practice of Holisitic Ecology” where the Miriam-Webster dictionary defines this as “humans and the
environment operate as a single system”. (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/holistic)

As such, in holistic sleep coaching (or training for the family), there is no one-sized-fits all method.
These are widely available elsewhere but not what I specialize in. With holistic approaches, be it for
chronic health issues or sleep, there is no ‘quick fix”. Quick fixes for complex health and wellbeing
concerns tend to provide temporary relief to an individual part of the overall picture.

Gaining a Holistic certification also means that we are very protective over the family dynamics and
their effects on the entire family’s sleep. Tapping into nature’s wisdom in order to get long term good
sleep and teach what it means to be emotionally aware and connected to these are my goals for you.
Holisitic health and living is something that I have incorporated into my life for over 20 years and why
this side of sleep coaching became a calling for me. When it comes to being a parent myself helping my
clients navigate the unchartered territory called parenting I believe that the more aware of all facets of
parenting I am the better I am able to address every family’s life at the time of coaching.

I also provide additional support to you by tapping into my knowledge and experience in various
positive parenting style such as:

Attachment Parenting,
Unconditional Parenting,
Spiritual Parenting
Slow Parenting.

This is the holistic way. Everything matters when discovering deeper connections to self, from a place
of love with no judgment.
There can be tears, sometimes from you too, but I support you in helping you clear your own personal
fears, hang-ups or triggers to ensure the most successful sleep outcomes for everyone. Sometimes some
respectful behavioural practices are required to accompany your little person through the changes but
sometimes they’re not.

If this sounds like a good fit to your needs, you can reach out to me
