Hello and welcome to my website...

My name is Julie. For as long as I can remember, I have wanted to work with children and help people. ​

I qualified as a Nursery Nurse in 1993 and I have worked in various Early Years Settings over the years. I also spent a short period of time working in a neonatal unit. For the last 18 years, I have been working for the NHS as part of a Health Visiting Team, supporting families in the community, in all aspects of parenting such as sleep support, toileting, behaviour, diet, completing development assessments and supporting children to become school ready. During this time, I have trained as a facilitator for The Parenting Puzzle Programme, as well as completing relevant training in sleep management.

I became a Certified Infant Massage Instructor in 2002 after training with the International Association of Infant Massage (IAIM). Baby Massage has so many benefits;  supports and enhances bonding, can aid sleep, helps with colic, constipation and wind, increases body awareness and most importantly it is FUN!


In March 2018, I trained as a Relax Kids Coach. I have always been passionate about supporting early mental health in children and Relax Kids gives children the tools they need to begin to understand their feelings, regulate their emotions and feel calmer and more relaxed. In an ever-changing world, I believe this to be so important.

In November 2018, I qualified as an EFT therapist. EFT stands for Emotional Freedom Technique. also known as Tapping. This is an alternative treatment for physical pain and emotional distress. Though tapping the body we can create a balance in our energy system and treat pain and release negative emotions. ​

I offer:-

·  parenting consultations for sleep and behaviour which includes helping parents understand and support their child’s emotions.

·  6 week coaching sessions for children.  We can cover a variety of emotions and each session is tailored to your child. I incorporate all my years of experiences, training and qualifications to deliver fun sessions. My aim is that by the end of the 6 week course, your child will have their own toolbox of resources to help them understand and regulate their emotions. These sessions are unique to Happy Parenting.

·  Baby Massage sessions.  These can be booked as 1:1 sessions or I can facilitate larger groups for parents in the comfort of your own home. Perhaps with your NCT/Antenatal friends.

My biggest achievement to date is most definitely my 2 beautiful children who are now 16 and 12.  They make me proud every day.

​For your peace of mind, I am fully insured and hold a current enhanced DBS.
