I'm Christine Jolly,

Parenting and Sleep Coach

As Featured in
Working Mums: Stories by real women on how they manage children, work and life, compiled by Danielle Ross Walls & Louise Correcha, Finch Publishing, 2018.
My chapter delves into my journey into motherhood and my desire to make a lasting impact on my community, bringing together thousands of local mothers through friendship, events,  projects and volunteering.
"My current career choices were all made while being the mother of small children. I built a local empire of local families with my two little girls involved every step of the way. My little ‘business associates’ joined me at meetings at the Town Hall. They played with sticker books while I gave presentations to local service providers. As they began to attend school, my time became more focused on delivering better programs to local families." pg. 85

About Me

 

As a parent coach, I have a particular focus on the relationship, timing, conditions and parent/child behaviour around pediatric (newborn-5 years) sleep. My Sleep Solutions program delivers great results helping parents target key areas in their daily habits and routines that may need adjusting.

 

In addition to sleep, I work with parents on a wide range of topics (including behaviour, development, play, feeding/eating) emphasizing

  • "being with" our children,

  • supporting their going out to explore their world and learn new things,

  • adopting age-appropriate boundaries and

  • repairing any ruptures to the family relationship.

 

My ultimate aim for parents is to strive for their own progress, not perfect parenting.

I have studied courses in Pediatric Sleep and I am a trained facilitator of parenting programs:

  • Circle of Security

  • 123 Magic and Emotion Coaching

  • Bringing Up Great Kids

  • Family Food Patch

My personal approach to all areas of parenting are informed by

  • John Bowlby's theory of attachment,

  • Madga Gerber's respect for the child,

  • Dan Siegel's focus on a child's developing brain and

  • John Gottman's understanding of emotional intelligence.

Clients Came to Me

With a Wide Range of Sleep Challenges

"I wish she would go to bed more easily at night."

"He gets out of bed so many times before he finally just passes out."

"He wakes anywhere between 4-10 times at night and needs us to put things just right before he can go back to sleep."

"She never naps longer than 20-45 minutes."

"He screams whenever he wakes. Is it night terrors?"

"Feeding to sleep used to work for us. But it isn't working anymore. Help!"

"This week he started waking before 5am every morning and won't go back to sleep."

"She will only sleep if she's on me."

"I've held and rocked her since she was born. She wakes within minutes of me putting her in her crib."

"Only I can put her to bed."

"We can't get into a routine because his naps are all over the place."

"Moving from cot to bed has been a nightmare. "

Phone, Online, or in Person
Booking and Payment is a breeze for members looking for a bit of extra support outside their Facebook membership group.
Phone or Online, 40 minutes (worldwide)

For Parenting Solutions members, I am only a phone, Facetime, Facebook Messenger call away. Whether it's tricky naps, picky eating or tantrums, I will listen to your concerns and help you brainstorm a path forward to peaceful homes, confident parents and contented babies and children.

1 Week of Daily Follow Up Support

In Home Visit, 2 - 3 Hours (Hobart, Tasmania area only)

 

With your mum no longer living in the same town, parenting on our own is the new norm. You might be the first among your peers to enter the parenting journey and don't have a community to tap into to gain hands-on knowledge and experience.

A Cradle 2 Kindy home visit is exactly what you need. I will arrive with a smile and a bag full of confidence, experience and knowledge to pass on to you. Over a few hours you will sip on cups of tea, talk about your journey, go over any concerns and get hands-on with parenting techniques that will increase your own confidence and bond with your little one.

Hobart parents who feel a bit lost will get a boost in their confidence when they book a home visit.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

I really like that Christine sold her self and her business as "parent coaching", not just "sleep training". For me it was never going to be enough to shut the door and let my little boy cry to learn to sleep on his own.

WHAT PARENTS SAY

After nearly three years of next to no sleep every aspect of my parenting had been doubted (mainly by me). I needed Christine to tell us (my husband and I) that we knew what we were doing, that we were doing a great job and that we could turn this whole sleep thing around!
