About Sheila Franklin

Certified Holistic Sleep Coach & Parenting Consultant

I have many years of experience of working with children and families, including birth families, foster families, and families who have adopted. I have considerable expertise in evidence-based family assessments and in supporting parents to manage their children’s challenging behaviour. With an extensive knowledge of child development and attachment theory and a strong belief in empowering families, I am also a certified Holistic Sleep Coach. I qualified through the Holistic Sleep Coaching Programme, currently the most comprehensive sleep coaching programme in the world.

Combining my previous experience and expertise with the holistic sleep coaching approach means I am able to help families address sleep issues, in an evidenced based way, without using any strategies that leave children alone to cry, and in a way that promotes close, responsive, and nurturing care.

On a personal note, I live in North West England with my husband, two sons and our rescue dog.
