My name is Barbara, I am a sleep and empathic education consultant. I am a mother of two girls. I am the President of the Maternage Association, I am a member of the IPSA International Pediatric Sleep Association and of the IACSC International Association of Child Sleep Consultants, I collaborate with the best doctors and professionals in the sector.
I love to study and be constantly updated on the issues concerning my work, so almost always (when I’m not in a videocall) I’m reading a research, a study or following a course, a master or congress in the pedagogical or psychological field.
Thanks to these interdisciplinary studies, I have gained in-depth knowledge on children’s sleep that has been fully reflected in the experience gained over many years of working with families.
As for the educational approach, I find that the word empathy well embodies the meaning of this perspective, which wants to be respectful, responsible and collaborative. An approach supported by the most recent studies in the field of neuroscience and developmental psychology.
My consultations take place online via video call and can last up to two hours, the time needed to understand the child’s habits, environment and relationships, to contextualize the difficulty encountered and understand how to overcome it. This meeting is followed by a support and coaching follow-up
