Camilla Pretorius

Camilla is a sleep consultant based in South London.

With a background in Psychology and Marketing, I have always wanted to help people change their lives for the better, but I wasn’t sure in what way. Then I had my son. He is the reason I am doing my life’s work. I moved into this career because I am hugely passionate about helping others who are going through what I went through.

My little boy was born with laryngomalacia (a ‘floppy larynx’). He also had reflux and as a result was sick a lot of the time. He catnapped all day and all-night long, never sleeping for long stretches, no matter what my husband and I tried.

He woke up every hour. Every. Single. Night…For a year!

Working with a sleep consultant TRANSFORMED all our lives. We solved his sleep issues within a week, and he has since been sleeping 12 hours a night.

He gets ill less, he is even more chirpy than before, we enjoy our time together more, and my husband and I have our quality time back in the evenings. We have all felt so many positive effects from just a few hard nights in the beginning.

Now, I want YOU to feel how life changing this can be and to show you how quickly you will see results.

I work closely with you to create a bespoke plan suited to your child’s needs and then teach you gentle ways to help them to fall asleep on their own (and stay asleep for longer than 45mins)!

Do get in touch if you have a baby or toddler that struggles to nap peacefully or wakes a lot during the night and leaves you feeling exhausted.

The expert skills and support I can provide you with in order to get you through the important steps towards your baby or child learning independent sleep skills, have lifelong positive repercussions for you and your family.

It’s been said that “it takes a village to raise a family”…

Well, being a South African living in London, I also understand what it’s like to not have the support of close family nearby to alleviate some of the pressures of being a new Mum. I want to be that ‘village’ for parents, everywhere.
