Amanda Burgess

The Gentle Parent Coach

Is your little one waking frequently throughout the night? Unsettled at bedtime? An early riser? A professional cat napper? If so, I can help you!

Hello! My name is Amanda, I am a certified Holistic Sleep Coach and a mum of two based in Stevenage, Hertfordshire. I work with families offering sleep support for babies and children from newborn up to 6 years of age. If you are looking for a truly gentle and responsive approach, you have come to the right place!

There are SO many books, articles and blogs available out there which are great to provide basic information on sleep but, ultimately every family situation, every parent and every child is different. There are many different approaches to sleep support and my aim is to work with you and your family using gentle, evidence based techniques whilst taking into consideration your personal circumstances, parenting style and being responsive to your child's needs.

It's really difficult to know what is 'normal' and how a baby 'should' be sleeping. The truth is, there's no such thing as normal or should. Each and every single person from baby to parent are different and it's about understanding them as an individual and not just a person within an age range, working on text book averages.

I am fully insured, a member of the British Sleep Society and fluent in British Sign Language so I am able to offer video consultations to  hard of hearing parents who wish to use this service. 

If you believe I am the right person to help you, please check out my packages here. If you would like to know more about me, don't hesitate to contact me and ask me anything you wish to know.

Success Stories

Dreamy Tots 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.

Troubleshoot Phonecall


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.
