About Me

My name is Michelle and I live in Dorset with my family. My background working with young children began when I trained as a Nursery Nurse. After some years working in various roles, I decided to extend my knowledge and training by completing a degree in Early Years. This training was done alongside working and then later having my first child so there was lots of juggling with becoming a new mum and studying.

I am patient, enjoy listening to others and will always strive to find the best plan of action to assist any parent. A sleep problem with one child may be completely different to another, therefore the approach may well take a different path. I am organised, methodical and believe that structure and routine with children is extremely helpful.

I am offering one-to-one private sessions which can either take place on the phone or zoom so despite where you live, I can make contact. Should you particularly want to meet at your home, I am happy to discuss this. Please do not hesitate to contact me for an informal chat to see how my services can best support your family.

My Experience

My career began as a private nanny working in Paris, New York and London. I cared for new babies and children of school age. I had sole charge positions but also worked alongside families supporting them with all aspects of daily routines and challenges.

I have held positions in nursery, infant and primary schools as a Community Nursery Nurse supporting the class teacher.

For seven years I worked for the NHS in SW London as a Community Nursery Nurse based with a Health Visiting Team. My role involved supporting families on a one-to-one basis working through a variety of difficulties to include sleep patterns, diet, behaviour, play and speech and language. I saw children monthly in the clinic by appointment where I would complete developmental assessments and make any necessary referrals to other professionals. I set up and facilitated weekly baby massage classes and a physical activity class for older children to attend with their parent/carer.

My love of drama was used in preparing children for LAMDA drama exams on a weekly basis at a local theatre school.
