About Me

Lucy Barker

I’m a Sleep Consultant and mum of two small children. I trained with The Sleep Nanny, Lucy Shrimpton, one of the UK’s leading infant and child sleep experts after working with a Sleep Consultant myself to help me help my own children to sleep! Since then, I’ve worked with families from all over the world, successfully turning exhausted, seemingly snooze-resistant little ones into champion sleepers.

I am passionate about sleep. It’s key to our development and to our sanity. Sleep deprivation isn’t a joke, I know because I’ve been there. A Sleep Consultant changed our lives when she helped me to get my two children sleeping after months of nightly tagteaming. I know how isolating and debilitating it is when you’re surviving on a few hours of sleep and work is looming. And I now know how incredible it feels to come out the other side.

Teaching your child to sleep can be tough, but I bring both my extensive experience as a Consultant and my empathy and understanding as a formerly sleep-deprived mum to every single family I work with so that you never feel like you’re going through it alone.

I work with children from 18 weeks but I particularly enjoy the challenge of a cheeky toddler – I see a lot of sleep issues crop up when a child turns one and while these children can be quite noisy in the process, once they’re sleeping well, you’ve got a child who’ll sleep well forever!
