GREAT SUPPORT Emma is a very understanding and compassionate sleep-consultant. I felt supported and listened to in my journey to teach our 7-month-old to fall asleep independently. Our baby successfully learned to fall asleep independently within about 10 days - the transformation to her sleep and our life is incredible! Couldn't have done it without Emma's reassurance and fact-based adjustments to the plan.
— Blandine parents to 7.5-Month-old Olivia.
SLEEP TRANSFORMATION AND GREATER QUALITY OF FAMILY LIFE! Thank you so much Emma for your help! Your method works so well! After just 1 night we saw immediately a difference in our daughter's behaviour and now she sleeps 9 hours solid. It also improved her eating habits and balanced her positive emotional state. More importantly we (her parents) have a good structure to rely on as it brings order to our evenings and returns peace of mind to our family life. Your clarity in your service and kindness in your consultation are noteworthy. We highly recommend your service!

More lovely words
Wow What can I say! Emma is a miracle worker, I’ve tried every method for 3 and a half years to get my son to sleep and nothing has worked then I was recommended Emma and I’m so thankful I was, I have the most stubborn little boy in the world, and she has done it she has cracked him and last night I had my first full night sleep!! The support Emma has given me is beyond more than I could ask for, the attention to detail to get me the outcome I was looking for was amazing and also understanding and adapting the plan to my child’s potential additional needs was fantastic, Emma you are a complete superstar and thank you for giving me my Christmas wish!!!
— Zoe, Mother to 3.5-year-old Noah.
I cannot recommend Emma more highly. I approached Emma after my 3-year-old started waking during the night. He suddenly needed lots of reassurance and comfort and I was finding myself cramped up in his bed till the early hours of the morning. I wanted to nip this sudden change in the bud. Emma has given us the tools we needed, and we are back into a great bedtime routine just after a few days. He still wakes during the night for the toilet but returns to bed without any fuss, but the most important thing is both of us are getting a good night sleep. Thank you so, so much.
— Amy & Sash, Parents to 3-year-old Theo.
I feel very fortunate that my lactation consultant referred me to Emma Gahan. Emma´s advice and sleep plan transformed our nights, as my 10-month daughter started sleeping through the night by herself, in her cot, uninterrupted, in addition to 2 naps during the day. Emma is professional, kind and generous with her knowledge. I would recommend Emma´s sleep consultancy service to every new parent out there. Thank you, Emma!
— Sofia, Mum to 10-Month-Old Emma.
I really think Felix has done amazingly and so different to a month ago. Thanks so much for all your help and advice, we couldn’t have done it without you holding us to account, setting the guidelines and being our cheer leader!
We will definitely be back in touch if there’s a second in due course, your advice will be invaluable.
— Claire & Will – Parents to 9-Month-old Felix.
We contacted Emma out of desperation, myself and my husband were sleep deprived and completely exhausted, it didn't matter what we did our son's sleep just seemed to be getting worse as he got older rather than better! After the initial consultation I felt like I could see the light at the end of the tunnel, I was apprehensive about starting the plan as there were going to be some big changes to my son's sleep routine however after Emma had explained the reasons behind the changes it made sense and I couldn't wait to get started.
Emma told us that it would take about 3 nights to see the difference so I couldn't believe that after the 1st night of the plan we have not had to enter his room throughout the night, although for a few nights he did wake up he settled himself and went back to sleep within a few minutes. It has now been about 3 weeks since we started the sleep plan and our son is now a good sleeper, we cannot believe how quickly he learnt to settle himself and I honestly wish we contacted Emma months ago! It really has been life changing for our family and I can't thank Emma enough for her guidance and support throughout the process.
— Hatty & Lee, Parents of Joshua, aged 11 Months.
BEST MONEY EVER SPENT Emma provided an excellent service! My daughter was nearly a year old and still waking up twice a night to drink milk. My husband and I were exhausted. We tried different things but were unable to change her feeding and sleeping habit. She was also using a dummy to fall asleep and would wake up if it fell out at night.
As an anxious person and having suffered postnatal depression it was stressful for me to have broken nights and for my baby to be waking up. I contacted Emma based on a recommendation and, although not fully convinced that someone could solve our sleep problem, decided to give it a go. It turns out hiring Emma was the best money I ever spent. Within 2 days my daughter was sleeping through the night with no bottle and no dummy. With Emma's helpful explanations (based on sleep science) and her reassuring manner the process was much easier than we could have imagined.
To any parent struggling with baby's sleep please don't hesitate to contact Emma.
— Fiona & Michel, Parent’s to 1 year old Charlotte.
Emma was fantastic and so reassuring! I was concerned how sleep training would go with a 10-month-old who refuses the bottle and my daughter adapted brilliantly!
I went from having to give multiple night feeds to get my daughter to settle, to no night feeds and a baby that can self-settle. My partner, who previously felt redundant with helping at bedtime, can now put her to bed every night and gets to have “his” time with her.
I shall definitely be using the Newborn package for baby number 2... whenever that may be
Highly recommend best money I have spent this year!!!
— Robyn & Mark – Parents to 10-month-old Mila.
“Emma was so wonderful! She helped us teach our 3-month old how to fall asleep independently in a quick, effective and gentle way. Within a couple of nights, he was already sleeping through the night (he now wakes only once to feed), and the naps fell in place within a couple of weeks, so now does three 1.5-2h naps per day. I can’t describe how much this has changed our lives. I went from having our baby sleep on me at night, waking up almost hourly to a wonderfully happy, independent sleeper. Thanks so much, Emma! We are so grateful for all your help and attention!”
— Natalia, JP – parents to Lucas aged 4 months
My partner and I had been struggling with our daughters sleep for a long time. We were sleeping separately, one doing ‘the night shift’, staying up until 10pm to cuddle her to sleep, getting up at various points throughout the night, starting the day at 5am and often clearing up sick when she got herself worked up during the night. Needless to say, we were exhausted. I contacted Emma, a little sceptical, thinking that my baby was different but even if this helped a little bit, anything would be better than where we were. I remember asking Emma, does this ever not work, not quite believing that in 10 days my life would really change however, it did. After a tough couple of nights, Bella started sleeping through the night from 7:30 until 7:30. My partner and I have a new lease of life and are able to spend some quality time together in the evening and sleep in the same bed! We are so grateful for the plan, it really does work! I would recommend the programme to anyone (and have done), trust the process and you will wonder how you ever managed those sleepless nights. A huge thanks to Emma for all the support and encouragement.
— Heidi & Chet, Parents to 13-month-old Isabella.
“We asked Emma for help with our son’s sleeping when he was 4 months old. He was an ok sleeper, but he needed lots of cuddling to be able to fall asleep and he was still waking up at night. Since he was about to start a nursery soon, we were worried he would have a problem with falling asleep there. So, we contacted Emma, and in less than a week he was able to fall asleep independently and he dropped the night feeds. We established a schedule that gave us some predictability and his 2h naps gave us a moment to breathe and take care of other things. There was some crying involved, especially at first, but it wasn’t too bad. Our son got used to the new rules very quickly to the benefit of us all. Being able to sleep the full night definitely improved the quality of our interactions and allowed us to relax more. Our son was very receptive and his path to good sleeping was relatively smooth, I would definitely recommend Emma’s help.”
— Aleksandra and Brendan – Parents to 4 Month old Finn.
"I was at my wits' end before I contacted Emma. Our daughter would not go to bed before 9-9.30pm and would wake up every 1-2 hrs. With hardly any sleep at all, none of us were happy!
We contacted Emma following a recommendation and right from our first phone call we felt that we were in safe hands. When we received the plan and Emma talked us through it, I admit we were a bit scared at first and weren't sure it would work but boy we were wrong! By the second night our daughter was already sleeping for longer stretches and learning to sleep on her own. Now she sleeps through the night and we often need to wake her up in the morning as she could keep on going. We also got rid of the pacifier in the process! I couldn't be happier and would recommend Emma to anyone! She's great!
Emma - We are highly indebted to you and cannot stop shouting your praises with friends and family. We seem to have a sense of normality again and can actually enjoy our evenings a bit better. Thank you so much!"
— Jeanette & Mark – Parents to 19-month old Charlotte.
"We heard about Emma's program "Baby sleep the night" in a webinar but quite honestly we were sceptical about being able to successfully make our 4 and half months old daughter sleep alone through the night: it simply felt an impossible mission. We didn't realize that it was us and not her that were wrong: we weren't establishing a good routine and right sleep associations for our baby, so she would only have very short naps during the day (20-30 mins max) and could only sleep next to her mum at night in the same bed.
Luckily Emma put together a sound plan that helped us change these habits. With her support during the 2 weeks, we managed to achieve great results already in the first week. Even the second day was much better! Now our almost 6-month daughter can sleep 11 hours in a row at night in her cot, as well as have two 1.5-2 hours naps every day.
First days weren't easy. Emma was very empathetic, supportive and gave us confidence to continue with the sleeping plan. We are very happy we sought Emma's help. Honestly, even though one knows the theory about sleeping and reads tons of books, it's really difficult to put it into practice without professional help. Thank you, Emma!"
— Laura and Andrea, Parents of 4.5-month-old Emma, Brussels.
Cannot thank Emma enough for her help and support with sleep training our 2-year-old son! From the moment we contacted Emma she has been so kind and helpful and put together a fantastic plan for us to follow and we are now just under 2 weeks in and I cannot believe the change! I never thought it would be possible, but our son is sleeping 7.30-7am every night in his own bed with a 1-hour nap during the day! This for us is life changing as every single night around 1am he would wake up and come into bed with us and would refuse to go in his room! He also used a dummy, but we got rid of that the night we started the training and he hasn’t had it since. We have a new baby on the way so getting his sleep pattern right was so important and for me to get a good amount and quality sleep before the Newborn arrives in Nov. I highly recommend Emma just when you want to give up (as it is hard the first few nights) she is there in the morning to help and praise and give advice and then it does just click. Thank you so much!
— Becky & Toby – parents of 2-year-old Joshua.
We are so glad that we finally decided to use a sleep consultant for our just turned 2-year-old son, and so happy we found Emma. The plan she put together so he would sleep through the night and reintroduce his nap has really been life-changing for us all, and he has learnt how to settle himself. Finally feel human again and not constantly tired after nearly 2 years! Our son is also happier and not falling asleep on his way back from nursery or getting grumpy! He took to the plan really well and now he sleeps 12 hours at night and has an afternoon nap for 1 hour. Previously, he was waking up once or twice a night for an hour or more and needed cuddling and rocking to sleep and sometimes a bottle, or, he was up and ready to start his day at 4:30am! Just trying to function and get on with my day was difficult with so little/broken sleep and now that has all completely changed and we are all very well rested! This has really been the best money we've ever spent, and I can't recommend Emma enough. Our son has learnt how to settle himself and we have been able to stop using dummies and bottles. Emma was always there with help and advice when we needed it too. Thank you so much!!
— Carlota, Mother of 2-year-old Oliver.
Emma has been extremely helpful in helping our 2 kids sleep soundly through the night. We can’t thank her enough for all the progress we’ve made with Nathan, age 2.5 years old, and Camille, 5-month-old. We didn’t think it was possible, but with Emma’s guidance, it was achievable. We didn’t sleep train Nathan before when he was a baby because we didn’t believe in leaving your baby to cry. However, after 2.5 years of bedtime struggles and night-time waking’s, and in addition, we have a Newborn who was also waking up several times a night, we knew something had to change. We interviewed several sleep consultants, but Emma’s approach was what we were looking for - a gentle and reassuring approach. We felt very comfortable placing our trust in her and following her plan right from the start. We saw immediate results on the first night. It was amazing! It took about less than one month to sleep train both of them. We now enjoy a peaceful and restful sleep that we both desperately need. Thank you so much!
— Evelyn & Antoine - Parents to 2.5-year-old Nathan, and 5-month-old Camille.
Emma (or should I say the baby whisperer!), thank you so much for all your help/support/guidance. You are a wonder woman! Our 5-month-old son has gone from waking every hour at night to sleeping through within two weeks.
From our initial call you filled me with confidence, and I felt completely reassured you would be able to help with the extreme sleep deprivation my husband and I were going through. Sleep deprivation is just the hardest thing ever.
Communication throughout the two-week period was easy and effortless. We are now functioning a lot better with a two-year-old and five-month-old 🙂
Without a doubt we would recommend you to all our friends and family.
Thanks again for saving us!!
— Katie & John – Parents to 4-Month-old Rupert.
We are just about to finish our 2 weeks with Emma, and I can honestly say the experience has been life changing!! We have gone from cuddling and rocking our toddler to sleep multiple times a night taking an hour each time, to just putting him in his cot, turning out the light and closing the door!! From night 2 he slept through 12 hours straight and hasn't woken up in the night at all since! Emma has helped us drop him down to one nap as well which he was definitely ready for!!! We are all much happier as a family and we can't thank Emma enough for everything she has done to help us! Jackson has been a superstar and coped with the changes really well, but we needed the constant support and detailed information that Emma gave us. Emma, we couldn't have done it without you, thank you sooo much!!! Anyone considering this, do it! You honestly don't realise how much broken sleep affects you until you don't have it anymore. It's a gentle method and it's worth every penny Xxx
— Rachael & Matt – Parents to 15-Month-old Jackson.
Before sleep training we were really nervous about doing it with our twins and in the end with Emma's help she gave us a huge amount of confidence and ensured that we got to that awesome stage of having a full night sleep. Our twins were so much happier in the day too - everyone benefitted!
We cannot stress the importance of being able to talk to someone directly rather than trying to just read some kind of material to do this training. It's the best way to answer any of those small questions you have in the back your mind and crucially allay any fears. Thanks Emma!
— Kieran & Claire – parents to 8-month-old twins Ava & Isla.
I became mum of triplets and I already had a 5-year-old son. My husband and I had never ever used control crying to our older son and we both were very against this method. We couldn't understand how parents could leave the baby when they are crying.
When the triplets were 8 months old, I started looking for a help. I breast feed them until they all fell-asleep and I put them to bed between 7-8 pm. I was not able to spend time with my eldest Son.
Unfortunately, they woke up one another after 30 minutes. I didn't mind them waking up after 10 pm but I was so angry, tired and sad when they did it before. I wanted to spend some time with my Son, and I couldn't. I found Emma on Facebook and explained to her my feelings. I just wanted them to go to bed at 7 so from that time I could be with my Son and eat with him, bath him and read the story :).
I told Emma that I don't believe this method and I will not stand my babies cry.
Emma was so nice and kind. She has so much patience. She explained everything to me and sent me some paperwork I could read. Emma promised me that from 7 o'clock I would be with my son and even better triplets would sleep from 7pm to 7am.
AND YOU KNOW WHAT??? IT HAPPEND. :)))) My babies sleep from 7 pm to 7 am. Sometimes initially they woke up around 6am but they went back to sleep again. This method is amazing. It's really works. I do strongly recommend Emma to every single parent! Our children are still happy, smile a lot and are happy to see us after nap or night sleep. Emma is very helpful, and she gently gives explanations and gives you psychological support which I needed the most.
— Agnieszka – Mother of 7-month-old Triplets
After hearing about Emma's work through a friend, we thought we would give her a try.
Our baby boy was almost 10 months old and had never slept the whole night through. It would take over an hour to get him to sleep every night. He would then wake up crying around 4 times per night and it was a nightmare getting him back to sleep again!
We had an initial consultation with Emma and were really impressed. She took note of our usual bedtime routine and then wrote out a new bespoke bedtime routine for our boy. It was planned over 2 weeks, where Emma could make adjustments if necessary.
On the first night it took him a while to fall asleep, but for the first time ever he slept the whole night through. We couldn't believe it! As the nights went on, he was falling asleep much faster and still continued to sleep the whole night. His daytime naps are also brilliant now too, giving us our much-needed rest.
It has now been around 5 weeks and we now have a baby who can fall asleep within 4 or 5 minutes every night and sleep for a full 12 hours.
We would highly recommend Emma if your child is difficult at bedtime, she has been absolutely brilliant.
— James & Margorie – parents of 10-month-old Joshua.
We are so thankful to Emma for the sleep plan she put together for us and the support in implementing it, I had a few wobbles along the way and Emma was there to reassure and keep us on track. Our son has gone from waking up every couple of hours and being fed to sleep to now settling himself and sleeping through the night! Feel we now have our evenings back to spend time with our older son and not so constantly exhausted, so much more energy and enjoying time with both boys. Thank you, Emma, we will be forever grateful. Thank you for giving us the confidence to follow the plan and reap the benefits.
— Helen – Mother of 11-month-old Arlo.
100 PERCENT WORTH IT!! Hiring a sleep trainer was the greatest investment we have ever made as a family. Emma is amazing. It's like having someone hold your hand when you're horribly sleep deprived and feel like a terrible parent and just want to get some real rest. Our 11-month-old son was ending up in our bed every night, nursing on/off all night. I felt like an open bar. We started the process and by day 3 he was sleeping through the night. Of course, he cried a little, but it was such a gentle approach that we felt very comfortable throughout. I could not recommend Emma more. Our lives have fundamentally changed. I slept through the night for the first time a year, and I am a better parent and partner.
— Natacha & Manuel, Parents to 11-month-old Rafael.
Cannot praise Emma enough for her kind and gentle approach to help us get a sleep routine with our 9-month-old baby girl! I was so anxious & apprehensive for taking on the course, I’m not great with following instructions & I can’t bear to have any tears but was at our wits end. We went from her sleeping on us all through the night, having only slept in her cot for a max of about 2 hours, waking every 1-2 hours for a night feed to sleeping through the night on day 1! Not to say it’s easy but if it hadn’t happened to me I wouldn’t believe it, it’s been a month now & I just put little one to bed & she drifted off to sleep all by herself to sleep in only 2 minutes! This has changed my whole family’s life; I could never go back to the way things were! Thank you, Emma, worth every Penny for our first decent sleep in almost a year!
— Lucy & James, Parents to 9-month-old Lisa.
“I came to Emma through a recommendation by a friend. I was desperate! My daughter was almost 6 months old and her sleep had been getting steadily worse for weeks and weeks. She was waking almost hourly at night and would only nap when held. Nothing I tried seemed to make a difference and I felt hopeless and exhausted. I thought I was falling apart. I freely admit that I was sceptical about sleep training - sceptical and a bit scared! After speaking to Emma on our first call I agreed to give it a go, what did we have to lose? Then after are longer consultation I felt a huge wave of relief. Emma was so kind, compassionate, and supportive. She understood my concerns and listened to my worries but reassured me we would work through this together. It turns out that is Emma’s secret weapon! I had read the basic principles of sleep training before, I’d seen the blogs and websites full of tips, but I couldn’t put them into practice on my own. Emma provided a bespoke routine and then provided something far more valuable - the support I needed and craved. And the transformation was amazing. My daughter slept through the night after only a couple of days of training and she was napping in her cot. And while the transformation was fast, this is by no means a “quick fix”. Emma has set us up with the skills for better sleep for the long term. Thank you, Emma!”
— Pilar and Nat.
Simply life changing! Words cannot express how truly thankful we are for all the expert help and support Emma gave us to get our baby boy to sleep through the night. It seems so surreal to think that our son spent his first 9 months not being able to sleep for more than a few hours at a time, to sleeping completely through the night and two good naps a day, all in just a few days of sleep training. From the moment we spoke to Emma we felt like she was there with us guiding us every step of the way, giving us the confidence to follow her gentle bespoke step-by-step plan which she tailored to suit our family lifestyle. We now have a happy contented baby who is just thriving now he is getting the solid sleep he so desperately needed. As a couple we also have our evenings back where we can spend precious one-to-one time with our older son, and all get a good night sleep which is invaluable.
