Mrs. A. Kent
Instead of my monthly massage and coffee I decided to spend the money on a home consultation and I am so glad I did. Emily’s behaviour has changed for the better since I changed my approach. Over the last week I haven’t raised my voice. Emily is calmer which is having a positive affect on bedtime. We are finally enjoying each other’s company and Emily is earning lots of stickers which she loves. The follow up phone calls have been great, it’s lovely to know I am doing the right thing even though it wasn’t always the easy option!
Thanks Kate you really are a Super Nanny!
Mrs. B. West Sussex
I wanted to thank you for working with our family. We were desperate when we contacted you, we though our son was the problem. But gradually you helped us see that we all could make some changes for the better, especially the way we communicate with him. This was hard for us to accept at first (as you know!) we just wanted him to behave. Slowly we realised you were right and by making changes to our parenting we could see changes in him that we really liked.
We were in a cafe at the weekend and a very well meaning lady approached us to congratulate us on Harry’s behaviour, she then proceeded to tell me I was very lucky; not all children would sit so well and eat. I couldn’t help myself it just came out “Lucky?” I said “The way my son behaves is not down to luck, but down to sheer hard work and patience” Poor woman and my poor embarrassed husband didn’t know what to do. In the future I shall try to accept compliments more gracefully. Finally the penny has dropped; I now understand everything you have taught me; the way I react to Harry is key, and not down to luck or the mood he is in!
He is visibly happier and we have a lovely bedtime routine although it’s bit later than you suggested, it’s working for us at the moment, we are prepared for it to change when school starts.
Thanks again for improving our family life
Ms. L. Kent
Thank you for coming to talk to our group it was good to get a professional point of view along with some practical personal advice.
Mrs. S. London
Thank you so much for all the guidance and patience you have shown. I feel a weight has been lifted from my shoulders, although family life is not perfect, I know now I am not alone and we are a pretty normal family after all! I feel more relaxed about Ben’s behaviour and eating is less of an issue. Calling you with issues as they arose,the written method and support was invaluable. I am going to miss the regular contact and gentle reassurance you provide so I would like become a member, please sign me up!
Huge Thanks again you really are my fairy godmother!
Mrs R. Aberdeen
I wanted to write to thank you so much for all your help with Poppy. Her sleeping is now amazing, at least 12-13 hours per night and good day time naps. You have made such a difference to our lives, and it was so
easy with your help.
We had our NCT Christmas party this afternoon and Poppy has gone from being one of the worst sleepers to being the best. All the other mummies are very jealous. I have been recommending you and telling them how easy you made it for us so hopefully you should have some more clients from Aberdeen in the New Year!
I hope you and your family enjoy Christmas. We will now definitely be enjoying our ski holiday with daddy and Poppy sleeping peacefully!
Thank you once again.
Mrs G. London
Thank you so much for the support and advice you gave getting my daughter to sleep through the night. As you know Phoebe stopped sleeping (after being a dream sleeper from 3 months old) when I returned to work and it really started to affect my ability to do my job. It was (and still is) essential I get my rest at night, especially as my work regularly involves me having to run presentations, workshops and think on my feet.
I found your advice invaluable in learning what I was doing wrong and you really quickly helped me to understand what changes I needed to make so my daughter would sleep through the night again. It was the consultation part of your service which I found most useful as we discussed together how different techniques you knew could be adapted to suit our family needs – your advice has been our mantra and your support really got us through those tough first stages where we took the leap into changing our habits.
You cannot put a price on sleep – and I am so grateful for the help you gave us in getting more of it back in our lives!!
Thank you so much. I would be happy to act as a personal referee to anyone who may be wavering as to whether or not to use your services!
Mrs M. Brighton.
I found this service invaluable. It gave me the confidence to enforce sleep training and it was reassuring to know that Kate was at the end of the phone.
My child has gone from waking every 40 mins to sleeping at least 10 hours! Infact he seemed relieved to be given the opportunity to learn to fall asleep on his own. I would recommend without question.
Mrs W. East Sussex
It was really useful to have fresh look at the issue. Great to have a plan to follow and renewed our focus to improve our son’s food issues.
Mrs C. Sussex
Very useful service, found talking about the area of concern therapeutic.
Mrs T. E. Sussex
I just wanted to say, thank you for the support and advice. I really appreciate your help.
Mrs E. Aberdare
Having breast fed for 6 and a half months I was really starting to stress out as my baby boy just wouldn’t stop!! After trying everything, cold turkey was the only option. Kate gave me the confidence to be able to do it.
Her advice on first reading may have seemed harsh, but her straight talking gave me the kick I needed!! For that I am eternally grateful. A month on and Jack is enjoying his solids and his bottle. We haven’t looked back.
Mr and Mrs C. London
Thank you! Thank you! We are now enjoying evenings together as a couple for the first time in 2.5 years! We have a very happy and content little girl, Thanks to a full nigts sleep!
Mrs B. London
Thanks so much for the support, I am so so glad I found you when I did!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Finally some pro active advice!
When I stumbled across the parent consultancy on Twitter, we had already been on a stressful journey with our 1st born little girl’s potty training. After a 4th-failed attempt at just under 3 years old, I was resigned to the fact that she would be in nappies until she was a teenager and my biggest concern (as if that wasn’t) was how we’d find nappies to fit her. You think I jest, I do, ever so slightly, but to be honest-it was anything but a joke for us&causing a lot of anguish in a very happy household. Our 2nd baby-a boy-arrived & our little girl just seemed to see potty training as her last bargaining chip with us. She has eaten,slept and done almost everything without any problem. This was our nemesis.You name it-we’d tried it. The frustration was palpable. Stickers,chocolate,bribing,not bribing, putting her on the loo seat constantly, leaving her to it herself- all to no avail-& I mean-NO avail. She was too smart for these “babyish” tricks&they held no currency with her.Along came Kate at the parent consultancy. I admit-despite my happy-go-lucky, positive attitude- I was at best, skeptical when she exclaimed that we would have our little girl sorted in no time. Bearing in mind-we’d tried all the usual tricks of the trade, spoken to health visitors etc etc.I swallowed my doubts&totally went with everything Kate advised. Our little girl would sit on the loo- then get off&and wee/poo in her pants in the corner& constantly hide from us. She had-not ONCE- in all 4 attempts- done anything on the loo- not even a slight offering.Kate told us to have set times for her loo visits until our little girl got the message that she would be treated like a big girl and could decide herself when to go-when she stopped messing herself.having a very headstrong,independent little girl-this was a huge bargaining chip. We were told to totally ignore any accidents and get our little girl to help clear up-in total silence. This went against every grain in my body-but we did it. Finally- my attitude changed-Kate kept saying my mantra- “attitude is key” and it truly was I showed no chink in my armour& showed no concern- outwardly.In ONE week- ONE week- our little girl soon realized that there was nothing to be gained from messing herself-so she went to the loo for her wees. Just. Like. That. I could have died of happiness (seriously-sounds OTT- it had been a hellish journey to this point). Since then-we’ve had 1 accident in 6 weeks-that’s all. That wasn’t deliberate-she sometimes can’t hold her wee if she falls asleep&wakes up int the car. Incredible.The pooing was the next challenge as our little girl-like many-liked the privacy&comfort of a pull up. We stuck to Kate’s advice-2 weeks in- a poo. On the actual loo! again- died of happiness. We have had not one poo incident since.To say I think that Kate is amasing, is an understatement. She gave us the most incredible support, guidance, sympathy and most importantly- understanding and empathy, where others had been so dismissive and almost condescending towards our anguish. It may sound pathetic-but this was a big deal for us as a family and to our little girl.Her emails were always clear, precise and supportive. Her manner on the phone- exceptional, not condescending, not aggressive, just concise and helpful beyond belief. Full of positivity and encouragement.I would not hesitate to recommend Kate to anyone. She is without doubt-a miracle worker! My advice is clear-listen to her-she does know best and you only have to look at our story to see it is testament to that.Thank you isn’t enough Kate-you’re a star
I have found the information and advice really helpful. I spent well over a year comforting my 1st son to sleep, I was not prepared to do that again with my 2nd. Kate offered a plan that not only made sense, but didn’t make me feel like a mean parent! And despite my reluctance to begin straight away, I wasn’t pushed into anything and was given nothing but support at every step of the way, early or late. If anything wasn’t going to plan or if I was slipping up, Kate would adjust the plan or reassess what I was doing so that progress continued. My son isn’t the perfect baby and never will be, but The Parent Consultancy have made things that bit better.
I contacted Kate @ The Parent Consultancy when I reached the end of my toilet training tether! Our son had been dry without a single accident or problem for exactly one year. Poos, on the other hand, were a disaster. He just could not break his nappy habit. Having been from one end of the emotional spectrum to the other, from silence to crying to fury, I needed help to help him! Kate put together an initial plan and was on the end of the phone and email for advice and support. When the initial plan didn’t work for us all, Kate wrote another and this time, we made progress. The most positive and constructive element of working with Kate is the confidence she gave us to continue, even in the worst moments! She listened, guided, counselled and supported throughout the process. She truly seemed as elated as me, when our son ‘completed the mission’ after 4 weeks. I thought we’d never make it! Kate always knew we would. That strength and support is invaluable.
Kate is amazing! My daughter aged 2 had a horrible fall out of her cot and cut her eye Badly which was such a shock for all of us! That day she moved into a big girls bed and everything was all a bit chaotic. As a result we lost our perfect little sleeper who slept 7pm-7am pretty much from 6 and a half weeks! She was up throughout the whole night! My husband and I after 4 weeks were exhausted, short tempered and just longed for our good little sleeper. We read everything on the Internet, asked advice from friends, tried our own methods… Nothing was working! Then I found kate. Reasonably priced, willing to listen and advised with reassuring guidance. She set my husband and I on the same track and within two nights my daughter was back going to sleep beautifully and sleeping through! It was like magic! Thank you kate, your supportive and listen to the whole situation before giving guidance… We would highly recommend you and think to come to you for advise in the future!
