Thinking about becoming a sleep consultant?

Infant sleep consultancy offers you a career that is flexible around family life, gives you financial independence, and is incredibly fulfilling.

I trained to become a sleep consultant after using a consultant to help with my first baby’s sleep. The frequent night wakings, short naps and inconsistent routine were having a real impact, and after working with that particular sleep consultant, the change in our family’s lives was incredible and I was forever grateful. At that point, I realised how much positive impact one person could have on an entire family and that was really inspiring for me.

I was also working long hours and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to juggle work and still be a huge part of my child’s life. I didn’t want to go back to work full time, but I still had bills to pay. I have 3 children now, my business works around their schedule and I’ve never been happier.

The amazing thing about becoming a sleep consultant is it can give you a sustainable income and financial independence, whilst remaining connected with your family. It can be used as a supplement to your family’s income, or if you want to turn it into a six-figure business, that’s achievable too. And it all starts with getting your accreditation here.

The best money we've ever spent. My only regret is not doing this sooner! Brilliant support, friendly, helpful, informative. Our 7 month old baby went from waking 15 times a night to waking 1-2 times a night, within days. Life changing.

We cannot recommend Chris highly enough. Our nearly 3 year old had always been a "bad sleeper", in spite of us trying absolutely every gentle method we could think of, buying every piece of kit that was recommended to us, and speaking to loads of parent friends, grandparents etc, and taking on everyone's advice. Our oldest was in the habit of 5am starts, and since he became a big brother this had become 5am start PLUS up to three night wakes before then. My husband and I were completely exhausted, even aside from also having a newborn. I think it's fair to say that neither of us believed that anyone or anything could possibly help. Then we contacted Chris. Within 2 and a half weeks, Chris got our eldest sleeping for 12 hours a night (often more). It turned out a lot of the advice we had previously been given was the opposite of what our eldest had needed. Chris looked at our previous week's sleep pattern, listened to us really well, and turned our whole situation and approach around. We were amazed at his insight, and also his kindness, including his reassurance and quick responses to questions. We love his gentle methods and logical approach, and best of all - IT WORKS!! We cannot recommend Chris highly enough. Go for it - we wish we hadn't waited so long first.

I contacted the daddy sleep consultant in early December. My 9 month old was waking 8-10 times at night. I was exhausted and caring for my three year old it was so tough and I was completely broken. Chris, reassured me that it would get better and put an individualized plan in place including getting rid of a soother (which we successfully did!) & set times for daytime naps. I am still amazed to say my little boy goes to bed at 7 and only wakes once at 5/6am and goes back to sleep until 7am. My life has been transformed, I now have time that I didn’t have, I now have sleep that I didn’t get, I am sorry I didn’t contact him when my baby was 6 months. Please contact Chris if you need help with poor sleep he is a superstar!! Thank you Chris!

Thanks so much to Chris,we have a 13 month old baby and for 11 months,no sleep,constant crying and very little sleep. We tried various things,but no solution,I came across Chris on line,and from the minute we interacted he was brilliant with us. From the very first night there was and immediate change to our sons sleep,and after 4 days or so,boom,we had a baby sleep for 11 to 12 hours per night. We were dreading the thought of Christmas 7 weeks ago,but thanks to Chris we all had a brilliant time,extremely happy baby now,and obviously extremely happy parents. I've already recommended Chris to several people,and really cannot speak highly enough about his approach and continued communication with myself or my wife. I only wish I was made aware of Chris months ago. So thank you Chris. From Barry Debbie and little Billy.

The best thing we did since having our gorgeous daughter is work with Chris. Chrissy was co-sleeping (not by choice but necessity to all get some sleep) and since newborn would wake up 3-4 times a night minimum. We found it impossible to get her into any sort of routine and by the time she was 11 months were despairing. Chris’ calm and kind approach made us instantly feel at ease and supported. There was light at the end of the tunnel! With a really gentle programme, designed specifically for Chrissy as she loves affection, we were able to stick to the plan and overnight she was out of our bed. Now three weeks later, we’ve had almost 10 straight nights of full sleep (all three of us!) and can’t believe our daughter actually seems to love her cot and is a happier child as a result. Thank you Chris. You genuinely changed our lives.

Our 20 month old had been a great sleeper until he suddenly wasn’t. We were struggling to settle him, he was waking multiple times in the night and starting the day very early. We did a 1:1 course with Chris and he was amazing. He listened to all our problems and concerns and came up with an excellent plan that fixed all our problems. Having Chris’ support on WhatsApp for 3 weeks was also so helpful as we could ask questions and get support on the way. After the 10 day plan our son is again sleeping through with minimal fuss at bedtime, naps are back to normal and all of us are in a much better mood! We highly recommend Chris and the Daddy Sleep Consultant, you wont regret it!

Chris was amazing from start to finish, our baby was waking up 5 times every night and we were at our witts end but after the initial consultation with Chris i was optimistic that we would make some improvement, however i did not expect that she would sleep through every night which she now does. just make sure you stick to his program no matter how hard it gets. It does work you just have to see it through to the end. thanks again Chris, you're a lifesaver!

We are 2 weeks post our 1:1 support and we have had 17 continuous nights (and counting!) of 11-12 hours solid sleep at night! Austin was 10.5 months when I sought sleep training advice, he wasn’t a terrible sleeper, and had at times slept through on his own, but there was no rhyme or reason to whether he slept well or not. One night he would sleep through the next night he would wake twice before midnight. I also fed him to sleep for naps, bedtime and nighttime wakes, sometimes he would transfer asleep and others it would take an hour and a half and 3 attempts, those times were exhausting. Naps could be 30 mins or 2 hours. On the whole we were managing but in the back of mind I knew I needed to take steps so when I go back to work there was a pathway to make it easier as my husband would need to be able to do manage naps, bedtime and nighttime wakes as I do shift work as a nurse. After our consultation, Chris gave us a detailed plan. We saw a big improvement quickly, Chris gave us the tools and confidence to manage. One of Austin’s naps he woke after 20 mins I would never have dreamed of trying to get him back to sleep before, so when Austin woke up I had a ‘what’s the point of even trying’ attitude but followed the plan and was gobsmacked that Austin did go back to sleep!!! Night feeds didn’t worry me, but during the plan Austin weaned himself off. Since our 1:1 support has ended Austin has learnt to stand up in the cot in his sleeping bag so he has resisted some naps but we had the tools to manage it. I feel confident going forward to manage Austin’s sleep and have clear boundaries so we don’t fall back into old habits. Chris’s approach isn’t at all clinical, but kind and gentle and supportive and tailored to individual sleep goals. I spent hours trawling for a sleep consultant, I followed a zillion on instagram! Chris felt the right fit, the right amount of structure but also very gentle. I’m writing this peacefully as my son is having a nap!!

Having struggled for months with our 8 month old waking multiple times a night to be fed back to sleep, we contacted Chris for help. He set out a clear plan and made several recommendations which made a big difference right from the first night. The approach is gentle with no CIO involved and within days our boy was sleeping 10hr-11hr stretches overnight. His sleep has continued to improve and can now easily self settle if he does wake. Chris was always available to support and answer any questions as we went through the process. We’re very glad we chose to work with Chris and are all much happier now we’re getting a decent night sleep. Highly reccomend!

How To become A Baby Sleep Consultant: FAQ’s

How long does it take to complete the online course?

The course can be completed online and at your own pace. It is about 12-15 hours of study depending on your individual learning style.

Do you provide ongoing support if I need help with clients?

Yes, you can join our support network where we have weekly calls to discuss specific client issues or ask any general questions you have.

How will the course be assessed?

You will be assessed at the end of the course by a series of question. Your answers will be submitted for review to assess your learning of the key objectives of the course.

Why is the sleep & business start-up course much cheaper than others available?

We don’t know why the other courses are priced so high but we saw an opportunity to create a top-class training programme at an affordable price to people. 

What is a baby sleep consultant's salary?

You can earn as much as you want to. If you want to earn about £2,000 – £3,000 per month, you will probably work with an average of 2 to 3 clients per week. If you want to earn a six-figure annual salary, you absolutely can achieve that too (also possible to do this in the first year!).

When will I make my investment back?

Depending on your consultation price, you would likely get a complete return on your investment after approximately 7 – 8 families. 

Can I work part time?

Yes, the nice thing is you can choose how many clients you want to take on. Typically a sleep consultant will charge between £250 – £350 per client for around 2 weeks of virtual support. Work out what you want to earn, and then set your price and how many clients you want to take on from there. 

Do I need to do a lot of media coverage?

It’s totally up to you and your business goals. To have a full time sleep consultancy, as well as supporting clients, it is good to build up blog content for your website and posts on social media as a way to advertise your services. We know some sleep consultants that pay a copywriter to do this side of things. You can choose to take on another 1 or 2 clients per month to cover the cost of paying someone else to do it. These are the topics we would cover in more detail in the Sleep Business Start-Up Course.

Will owning my own business involve long hours?

The best thing about owning a sleep consultancy is that you can choose when to work. Yes, there might be days where you have to work some extra hours, such as when your business launches, but you will be in control of your hours, when those hours in the day are and when you take time off.

I wouldn't even know how to get a client - where would I start?!

Everyone who wants to setup their own business has fears about where they will get their first client and how you will make money. But you will. With our support in the group training, we will assist you all the way to your first client. And the good thing about setting up a sleep consultancy is that there is very little upfront investment required apart from this course, your website and some marketing budget. This makes it a very low risk, high rewards project.
