I am Joanne, a certified Sleep Sense™ consultant. Dana Obleman, the creator of The Sleep Sense™ Program personally trained me in her methods, which have been used worldwide by more than 100,000 families to solve their children’s sleep problems


My previous career was as a secondary school teacher in the UK but left my position when I had my son Oscar and my family moved to Amsterdam.

Our family’s own sleep challenges

Oscar never slept well (or very much) as a baby and I just thought that was normal for a baby and presumed he would eventually ‘grow out of it’. I read every book I could find on the subject of baby sleep and spent countless hours researching on the internet. All I found was conflicting information and none of it helped. When Oscar turned 2 it still hadn’t got any better. I was unhappy, exhausted, starting to resent my son and my husband and decided then that I needed to take more action for it to change.

The Sleep Sense Advantage

I hired a Sleep Sense™ consultant and she helped us quickly by providing us with a sleep plan and the tools we needed to help Oscar to gain independent sleep skills. It made such a difference working with someone that knew our situation and could tailor her support based on what we were comfortable with. My only regret was not doing it sooner, I really wish I had not left it so long.

Sharing my passion, experience and knowledge of children’s development and learning

Then once it was time for me to go back to work I looked into the Sleep Sense™ certification programme. I really enjoy working with people and making them happy so I thought it would be the perfect career. I really am passionate about helping families get the sleep they really need.
