Services for infants and children with sleeping problems

It can be very distressing for an infant or child who cannot get to sleep, or stay asleep throughout the night. It can also have a huge impact on the well-being of parents and guardians. In addition to the worry, they are also kept awake at night and challenged during the day with an overtired child.

Trouble Sleeping offers tailored sleep advice to enable you to identify why your child may not be sleeping and to help them learn to get to sleep and stay asleep peacefully. Children with special needs such as ADHD and autism often have extra difficulties with sleep. Specific advice and help for those children is also available at Trouble Sleeping.

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”
Leo J. Burke

To ensure that Trouble Sleeping is the right option for your child, we offer a free, initial and no obligation telephone consultation with Dr Browning who can answer any questions you have.

Following that, a detailed history of your child’s sleep will be taken and you will be asked to complete a daily sleep diary. This information will then be reviewed and analysed by Dr Browning prior to the 1-2-1 consultation.

During the 50 minute 1-2-1 consultation, Dr Browning will walk you through a series of recommendations that include behavioural and cognitive changes to help improve your child’s sleep. You will also receive a copy of this personalised plan and will be able to access Dr Browning via email for any follow-up questions for up to one month.

In the majority of cases, clients see significant improvement to their sleep with only one session, but in more complex cases follow-up sessions may be required. In addition, if following consultation we believe that your child’s sleeping difficulty appears to have a medical cause then we will write a referral letter to your GP for further medical treatment.
