This is why we do what we do: to help professionals overcome their sleep problems
How would your life change if you slept well every night?
Every client's story is different, just as every person's sleep is different. But we believe that unless you have a medical condition causing your sleep issues, sleeping well at night is a skill you can develop too!
After a long period of sleep challenges (17 years) where I thought I had tried everything, Harley Street professionals, hypnotherapy, sleep schools, you name it I tried it. By the way, it cost me thousands trying to find an answer to my sleep issues. Then I was recommended to reach out to Beatrix.
Having worked with Beatrix now for over 6 months, I feel compelled to share my experiences. Most importantly the impact that working with Beatrix will bring to your wellbeing and current sleep situation.
Beatrix is more of a professional life coach, she will get to understand you, be aware she will probably understand you more than you do yourself!
She will challenge your way of thinking, create a positive balance in your mindset, whilst assisting you with tools to use when and if you require them with your sleep. It is not easy, but then how easy is your situation with sleep? If like me, it consumed me for over 17 years. There is no quick fix and I still have the challenges from time to time, but I have a tool kit to use and confidence that no one else showed me.
I would have no hesitation to anyone, particularly those professionals that at times, need to reflect, capture where they are at, but actually do something that will help you get your sleep, mind and wellbeing on track.
I can honestly say I really enjoyed working with Beatrix, do not suffer any longer, you have one life, do not waste it with negative thoughts and sleep issues, do something about it.

I initially went to Beatrix for insomnia, while I was hesitant not knowing if anything would work, by the second session I had gone from a few hours to get to sleep to about 15 minutes with some simple changes to my lifestyle.
Over the course we went though a set of exercises and assessments that helped me to understand myself and the things in my life that were causing me issues. with a good toolbox of things to do I am now much more proactive and use my time better.
My sleep has improved so much that I now get a good night's sleep every night and it is all thanks to the lessons Beatrix has taught me.

I worked with Beatrix for several months and my sleep changed from just having one good day of sleep a week (probably from exhaustion) to being able to get good sleep most days of the week.
I am over the moon to have been able to get my sleep on track!
Equally important, Beatrix has helped me to develop tools to deal with my anxiety and I have gained great self-awareness which will help me with whatever challenges I face with my sleep (or life!) again.
Beatrix was very patient, encouraging and non judgmental. This made working with her very comfortable. I also felt that she really cared about me and she adapted her sessions according to my progress. Her service was very bespoke.
I fully recommend her services not just for the sleep but as an investment on your long-term general well-being.

I met Beatrix in 2018 and she improved my sleeping immediately with only minor and personal adjustments to my lifestyle.
I cannot thank her enough in that my whole life is now more balanced. Our sessions have moved onto positive outcomes generally AND my sleep is now nigh on perfect.
I was previously only sleeping a few hours. Thank you Beatrix

Working with Beatrix is much more than about sleep!
It’s more about what you do during your day and how you structure and manage your time. Not only did she teach me about the technical side of time management but she also taught me how colour and texture in my bedroom can impact my sleep.
Since implementing these new skills I don’t feel overwhelmed anymore before bed and I am finally getting a good nights sleep. With better sleep my life has changed in such a positive way from being more productive with my work to feeling more energised.
Beatrix taught me how much sleep impacts our mind, body and how we performance in our life. All the skills and tools that she teaches are real-world solutions to help you get the best sleep ever so that you are thriving in your life.
I have to admit I am really pleased and amazed at how quickly I managed to break the disruptive cycle, which had been a long-term habit.
I am now sleeping though until 5 most mornings and sometimes even later. The better sleep has made me feel so much better and my New Manager at work commented that he has noticed a real difference in me at work, less tired, less stressed and more focused.
Even with lots to remember and do, with Christmas approaching, I am sleeping better. Thank you for kick starting better habits!
I had struggled with sleep for 5 years, still awake until 3am most nights. In the first session, Beatrix was quickly able to establish the areas I needed to focus on.
Just putting some simple changes in place, within two weeks I managed to get additional sleep. Within 6 weeks I was sleeping every night moving from average 3 hours to 6 hours sleep every night and it has continued to improve.
After 3 months I am still sleeping 6-7 hours most nights.
You definitely have to be prepared to be open and honest in order for Beatrix to really get under the skin of what is causing the sleep issues, but she has also helped me in other parts of my life, particular creating more work/life balance, giving me so much more time for myself.
I would absolutely recommend Beatrix, she's always there to talk to me, understand what was causing my sleep challenge and bring me back on track, always having tools for me to use or refocussing on the ones she had already shared.
Leah Queripel - HR Director
When I started work with Beatrix, I was 51 and hadn’t averaged more than five-and-a-half hours’ sleep a night since my daughter was born. I was stressed out about it because I know poor sleep habits are correlated with ill health.
At times I was scared to drive because I was so tired, I wasn’t confident I’d react quickly enough. It wasn’t that I couldn’t get to sleep: I couldn’t stay asleep. I’d wake up multiple times between 1 and 5 in the morning, toss and turn for an hour, get bored and pick up one of my devices.
I tried melatonin (didn’t work and gave me panic attacks). I tried anti-histamines (didn’t work and linked to Alzheimer’s). I saw my doctor, who prescribed me sleeping pills (didn’t work) and then a very low dose antidepressant that can help with insomnia, but that didn’t really make a difference either. I’d been on those meds for about 2 years when I met Beatrix.
What I liked about working with Beatrix was that I could tell her anything and she didn’t judge me; she just showed how that was affecting my sleep. We had regular sessions to review my sleep diary and figure out cause and effect for my sleep patterns and to come up with practical approaches to changing my habits.
By the end of the first session, I decided not to take any more sleep meds and I’ve been off them ever since. Beatrix spaces the habit changing out over the sessions so it never feels overwhelming.
At this point, I average 7 hours of sleep. That’s what I was getting when I was in my twenties. I don’t have to drag myself through the day. I used to feel as if I was permanently jet-lagged, but the fog in my brain has lifted.
I went to Beatrix to figure out my sleep but the change has been much more profound than that. It’s been a life changer. Forever grateful.

Beatrix is a great coach. I started working with her because of my sleeping problems. I couldn't sleep well and having a small baby surely wasn't making things easier.
After just few months of working together my sleep quality has increased from what it felt like 0 to an honest 8. I wake up in the morning feeling energized and ready, while before I had to literally drag myself out of bed!
Moreover Beatrix not only has helped me, but helped me teaching my daughter how to sleep better. And in the process we followed, we worked on and improved so many areas of my life that did affect my sleep even though I never thought so.
Beatrix is professional, reliable, knowledgeable, and so kind. She was fully present and supported me every step of the way.
I absolutely suggest working with her!

Working with Beatrix this year was timely especially as I had some big life changes and decisions to make.
I was operating on 5 hours sleep or less and not aware of the damage to my body and self image.
The coaching was really great and Beatrix genuinely held my hand throughout the process. Her coaching style was just right and post programme, I now feel in control of my life and getting quality sleep. Miraculously, getting 7 hours of sleep most nights. Thank you Beatrix
I had tried and tested everything when I came to Beatrix to help with my sleep.
I was very frustrated and completely worn out.
She immediately put me at ease and gave me lifelong skills to help with my sleep patterns and helped me to overcome my insomnia.

Attending Beatrix's seminar over lunch was a great investment of my time, as it was a great way in which to reacquaint myself with the approaches I need to take in order to enjoy healthy sleep.
I enjoyed the honesty of Beatrix's testimony and it was great to hear from a practitioner who has struggled with the same kinds of issues associated with sleep, who showed real empathy to the kinds of issues people were experiencing.
The seminar acted as a great 'reset' for me, and since then I have been enjoying real improvements in my sleep - mainly due to the reintroduction of a proper bedtime routine.
Sufina A - Manager
Beatrix gave an insightful and empathetic talk to over 30 of our employees about the importance of good sleep and how to get it.
She really knew what she was talking about and was able to give tips that none of us had even considered before, thanks to her own examples and experiences.
She was very easy to talk to and very relatable, nothing was too complicated and yet very interesting and thought provoking.
The feedback received from all of the attendees was very positive and I hope to see some very well rested employees at New Era going forward thanks to Beatrix!

Thanks for coming in to speak with our team! I have been hearing lots of employees quoting your advice on keeping the bedroom for sleeping (not reading, TV or phones) and saying how they've noticed a positive difference already!

Beatrix kindly ran some sleep workshops at an event that we co-run with The Priory recently about workplace wellbeing.
We wanted to give our HR Director attendees a taster of the workshops we offer as part of their wellbeing plan. We asked people to choose between a mindfulness taster or sleep taster and we had an equal split! The Sleep workshop was a great insight into what can be offered in workplaces as part of their programmes.
The participants had lots of questions that were dealt with very well by Beatrix who really is a sleep expert!

Beatrix was one of our expert speakers with our Live Long Well Summit that we organized in October 2017.
From the first conversation, you could tell how knowledgable she is about sleep and her passion for helping others overcome sleep issues. It was easy to arrange and liaise with her which always helps when organising such complex events.
During the interview for the summit, she pointed out so many things that are often overlooked when it comes to improving sleep. We had over 2,000 people watch this interview and the feedback was 100% positive.
She is very easy to talk to and she presents her topic in a practical and simple way which helped the attendees to start improving their sleep right away. She has a warm and genuine style that comes from real life experience that we can relate to.

Beatrix took part in a health and wellbeing season organised for the team here at Guy's and St Thomas' Charity. We knew that sleep was something people were interested in and some were struggling with.
Her talk was interesting and focused on adjusting your routine to support better sleep. Beatrix has a lovely relaxed presenting style and is clearly passionate about her work.
The session covered a lot of ground and she also signposted to some further materials for people to refer to.

The Sleep Deep Method® eBook
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the chapters of The Sleep Deep Method. It is reassuring to read a lot of my concerns about the effects of sleep deprivation from someone who knows the subject well.
The eBook shares a great insight into the importance of quality sleep and the knock on effects sleep deprivation can have on your life, relationships and career.
Beatrix is clearly passionate about the subject, sharing her approach and dedicated to helping people create positive change in their lives through raising more awareness around the direct result sleep has on our health, wealth and happiness.
What can I say? I loved it!
The Sleep Deep Method was easy to read and I learnt a lot. I had these ‘Aha’ moments whenever I read something that reminded me of when I had trouble sleeping.
Everything Beatrix writes is true. I never thought about these connections in such a simple, direct but still so powerful way. It is clear that she writes from experience: she has been there, she know what lack of sleep means.
Wow this book is amazing!!! I don't normally write reviews but this book has given me some of the best sleep I've had in years!
I feel more healthier and alert than ever. If you want real and I mean real deep sleep follow the instructions in this book!
I thoroughly enjoyed this gem of a book on the importance of sleep and tips to improve our sleep.
I found the authors concepts innovative and powerful, and she presents them in a conversational, reader-friendly manner, making them easy to follow and apply in my daily life.
My sleep has improved significantly since reading this enlightening, refreshing book; I now go to bed feeling calm, my mind cleared and prepared for sleep.
I believe this book will prove an invaluable resource for anyone who wants to improve their sleep and their lifestyle.
