Transforming Family Life
Think sleep holistically
and Trauma-informed Child Sleep Consultant
Sleep is affected by a large number of factors we cannot overlook. Like health, nutrition and emotional wellbeing.
Secure attachment of the child to the parent is basic foundation for healthy sleep and happy children.
Identifying a trauma when it exists, helps in finding the tools and resources to heal it.
Sleep difficulties (multiple wakings, very early awakening, resistance in sleep ending to a late bedtime, inconsistent or short naps, overstimulation, challenging behavior etc.)
Additional challenges (health issues, non-ideal conditions, personal triggers, lack of support, big changes, twins, complicated situations etc)
Sleep optimization (healthy sleep habits, sleep hygiene, biological needs, environment, health, emotional well-being, nutrition etc.)
Family goals (maintenance of breastfeeding, night weaning, sleep associations, transfer to another bed or room, strengthening attachment etc.)

Responding with care
- Teaches your baby that the world is a safe place. And there is always someone who responds and co-regulates them when they need to.
- Encourages your baby to develop self-regulation skills. And gain independence in a healthy developmental pace.
- Promotes secure attachment. And the development of a healthy relationship between you and your baby.
And what about you?
In order for you to respond with consistency to all your baby's needs,
you need to take care of your personal needs as well.
Personal needs are far more than hair salons and spas. Self-care means inviting the right external support. Finding balance in the family system. Having the ability to do things that recharge your batteries. Chasing your dreams. And creating a productive communication with your partner.
Through this journey, we explore your strengths and we empower them. We identify the areas that you want to improve and we find the tools to achieve that. Why?
Because the best parent for your child is you, happy.
Imagine your child sleeping safe and sound. And you watching your favorite series on Netflix with your partner. Imagine yourself enjoying cheerful mornings with your family eating breakfast together.
After you all have had a good night sleep.
Now, let's not leave all these be an imagination, what do you say?
Are you an expat parent?
Dealing with the above sleep challenges is already a real struggle. Being an expat parent above all these can be even more overwhelming. And can also bring isolation, despair and depression.
I am an expat mom originally coming from Greece. I live in Switzerland since 2016. I have been through all the sleep challenges mentioned above with my own child. In the meantime, not speaking the language and having zero support made me struggle some more. Fortunately I survived. And then I used my experience to grow.
It takes a lot of courage to ask for help and support when you are a new parent. I know, I have been there.
It is my mission to make your choice to search for support as worthwhile and rewarding as it can be. I do this by providing everything I wished I had received back then.
I'm Maria and I am a certified Sleep Consultant and a mom.
My personal story is what brought me here. I had to face many different and very demanding challenges with my own child's sleep.
This story has a positive outcome on so many levels. It also shaped my approach which is holistic and based on creating a secure attachment.
For the same reasons I am a trauma-informed professional. Trauma and healing has played and still plays a very big role in our lives.
Join me on this wonderful journey of growth and happiness.

(...)Maria has a magical way of listening and feeling you. It makes everything look solvable. From the first session, she gave me back the hope I had lost. She is well-trained and so to the point that you have no room to doubt whether you will succeed. Consistent and available, she helped me hear and understand my child's needs better. But most importantly, she has helped me understand my own needs. The quality of our daily lives has improved significantly.
