Part 1

Parents are invited to complete our unique SLEEPOLOGY sleep questionnaire and sleep journal prior to attendance to the first workshop. Your family SLEEPOLOGY sleep questionnaire and sleep journal will be reviewed by Karen Ditchfield  who will give written recommendations and advice to help parents identify specific areas of need when planning their own bespoke sleep plan. 

Part 2

A 2 hour workshop.

Workshop 1 focuses on the theory of children’s sleep, but don’t worry. This is not rocket science and you do not have to sit a test but understanding the theory behind child sleep is a great starting point to understanding your own child’s sleep pattern better. Workshop 1 includes discussion of:

  • The function of child sleep

  • Child Sleep requirements across the stages of development

  • Common sleep disorders

  • Child development and its effect on sleep.

Part 3

A second 2 hour workshop. Workshop 2 focuses on the practical elements of child sleep and how you can use child sleep theory to help develop healthy sleep patterns for your own child. Within workshop 2 parents will explore:

  • Getting the Sleep Basics Right

  • Soothing & Settling Techniques

  • Understanding crying

  • Sleep tips

  • Tried and tested gentle methods for getting your child to sleep through the night.

  • Designing a bespoke family sleep plan

In addition, all SLEEPOLOGY workshops will incorporate our distinctive Haven & Base feature, Restoring Balance. Restoring balance is about understanding how stress impacts us as individuals, how stress impacts our children and how we can develop strategies for coping with stress and anxiety.
