Sometimes and Skype or email consultation may not be enough support and guidance. Some people benefit from having in-house support, someone to offer in-person guidance and encouragement as they put their little one(s) to sleep, or try to navigate challenging behaviours.
If this sounds like you, then you may benefit from an In-Home Consultation.
In-Home Consultations $350
Central Coast, NSW.
Newcastle and Sydney incur an additional travel fee.
An In-Home Consultation is a three-hour consultation, where Natalie will come to your house to provide guided support in regards to sleep or behavioural challenges with your baby or child.
This consultation includes an initial Skype consultation so that the time used in your home can be completely dedicated to you and your baby/child at that moment, without going over all the finer details.
What it looks like
Natalie will arrive (an hour before your baby/toddlers bedtime if for sleep issues), and spend some time letting your child become comfortable with her as a new person. This may take some time, but Natalie prefers to give your child half an hour dedicated to just being available to them to get to know, without distraction, and of course with you being present.
You will have already discussed your bedtime routine, behavioural issues, tips, and suggestions with Natalie in your previous Skype/Email consultation, so the rest of your In-Home Consultation will be so that Natalie can support you in putting those ideas into practice; and for you to talk about, and ask, anything you wish, and define any new stratergies.
