Amanda Burgess

The Gentle Parent Coach


My name is Amanda, I'm a gentle parent coach who supports families with sleep, unsettled babies and toileting. I am a mum of two based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire but work with families worldwide over zoom.

I work with families from newborn up to six years of age and take a gentle and responsive approach to all aspects of parenting by finding solutions that work for BOTH the parent and child.

I have comprehensive training in both sleep and toileting and take a holistic approach to identify the underlying cause of the challenges parents are facing while considering what's biologically and developmentally normal or appropriate for the child too. You can read more about me here.

Success Stories

Dream Package

Amanda gave me confidence and reassured me that I hadn’t done anything wrong. She gave me so much information about baby sleep and tailor made support to help with our little one. Just having her on the end of the phone to ask the odd question and advice was so reassuring. She was completely invested in us and our son. She celebrated our sleep successes with us and has been simply wonderful.

Snooze Package


Amanda took the time to help us with the early rising of both our children.

She helped with some great strategies to get our children to stay in bed and then sleep longer and stop their early waking.


Thank you so much for helping our children (and us) to get more sleep.

Night Feed Weaning Workshop

Amanda gave me some brilliant tips to help our little boy break the habit of waking in the night for milk.
One week on and we’ve already seen a big improvement - all the family is well rested and hugely grateful! I only wish I’d reached out to Amanda when our firstborn was a baby!
Amanda has brilliant communication skills, and she is really engaging and completely non-judgemental.
