Meet Sally

 

Hi,  I’m Sally Visser, married to André and currently living in Bahrain. We also have a home in Cumbria in England where we enjoy quality family time with our grown up children and two precious grandbabies – they are grand!

Our eldest, Judy, suffered from undiagnosed silent reflux and slept for a mere two hours a day until she was five months old. She couldn’t lie flat and nothing seemed to bring her comfort and respite. I knew something was wrong but even a specialist failed to offer a diagnosis.

Our two boys suffered from severe colic which impacted their sleep too and I wrongly assumed that somehow I was causing the problems. I’ve never forgotten how helpless and inadequate I felt and remember how the lack of sleep negatively affected us as a couple.

The conflicting advice from well-meaning friends and family confused me even more, and I was all over the place. Watching our daughter bring up her children made me realise I want to help families and that led me to Sleepy Lambs.

In years gone by I had an interest in breastfeeding; supporting families in their choices and offering advice and encouragement. I see my role as a sleep consultant as very similar, with a major advantage of up to date training and hands-on experience. Many sleep challenges are not the result of a medical issue, however. Why not let me help you figure out what is going on and help you make gentle changes?  Let’s get a sense of balance, enabling everyone to enjoy restful, restorative sleep that you all deserve. You’ll have a happier, healthier baby/child too!

Forming new habits and then maintaining them takes time. The experts tell us it takes a minimum of 21 days to cement new routines and for them to become familiar and comfortable. I believe three weeks is the minimum amount of time we will need to work together so I can offer you support and guidance as you implement these changes, resulting in an easier, happier, healthier, family life. 

Due to the wonders of modern technology, I can coach you regardless of where you live, relieving the pressure of you having to get dressed & presentable and having a tidy house! Being a busy mum is enough pressure in itself and I don’t want to add to that.

When I reached out to Sally, I was in a very desperate place, I didn’t have much hope that anything would work when it came to my little one’s sleep patterns or extreme dependency on me to fall asleep. Sally had this calming and reassuring ability in her entire process, which made it easy for me to put my trust in her from the very beginning. Her holistic approach to help me reach my main goals really made all the difference. I will always carry Sally’s precious advice close to heart, as she helped me overcome a very challenging situation with her expert knowledge and kind approach. She has not only helped me reach a level I’m comfortable with but also given me the knowledge on how to approach any future concerns that I may have. Sally’s program extended well beyond the typical ‘sleep issues’ and really tapped into an entire world where the benefits of the child are at its core, while of course helping exhausted parents along the way! I will not hesitate to reach out to Sally again if I need to in the future and highly recommend her to anyone who believes there’s little to no help ‘out there’.

Sally is amazing! She is the Mary Poppins of children’s sleep, she has a bottomless bag full of ideas and solutions to help improve your child’s sleep. We were experiencing constant wakeups from co-sleeping, still breastfeeding during the night and also contact napping and we never thought we would get our daughter of 20 months, in her own bed, sleeping through the night AND in her bed for naps too! It really does feel like a miracle and that’s all because of Sally’s wonderful guidance and support. We couldn’t have done it without Sally because there is just no way we would have known what to do. I can’t thank Sally enough because the change really is life-changing for us.

Sally was a godsend. We’ve always had a routine with our son Freddie but with moving house and school changes we were suddenly all over the place.

Sally’s suggestions and overall plan was brilliant, it allowed us to regain focus and put in place some new positive sleep associations. Sally looked at the whole of Freddie’s schedule etc and gave us tips and insights into how to manage our developing and growing boy.

And Sally was there for us as parents as well – reassuring us that things would change! Freddie now sleeps through the night again!

With a newborn, a toddler, new country and a pandemic we needed as much of a routine as possible, so when I saw Sally’s advert I jumped at the chance.
Our toddler was waking in the middle of the night and wouldn’t go back to sleep without one of us. She also only wanted to nap in our bed with one of us. Sally rectified both aspects for us with continuous support and we haven’t looked back since.

Whilst helping us with our toddler sally also extended her help to our newborn. Whilst I think everyone expects no sleep with a new baby we were missing all Alice’s sleep windows and falling really short on her recommended hours of sleep which can go on to affect their growth and learning. Sally introduced to a great app and guided us on sleep windows and routine all with no ‘cry It out’ methods or anything and we were suddenly dealing with much bigger chunks of sleep, a routine and a much happier baby!

She answered texts, emails and checked in on us regularly. If your little one is struggling with sleep patterns and nap issues I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you, Sally!

Thank you for your help and guidance.
Having Sally as our sleep consultant was the best decision we could have made. Our journey started with a toddler waking up 5 times a night to a peaceful full nights sleep. We also had the chance to peacefully transition to no more milky bottles! 

Your kindness and understanding took away our stressful situation. 
I would recommend your services to anyone!

Sally was fantastic to work it, she was very positive and understanding. She helped sort out our 13months olds sleep issues in a short time, using a gentle and kind approach. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to other families, she had a massive impact on my our family and I’ll be forever grateful. Thank you!
