Get the good night's
sleep you all need

Hi, I'm Gemma. 

I am a Certified Baby and Child Sleep Consultant.

I know first hand how sleep deprivation can affect a family. I’m passionate about sleep and all of its physical, behavioural and emotional benefits. I can help you re-balance life for the whole family with a good nights sleep.


Let me show you that happier, well rested parents with fantastic sleepers for children can be a reality, not just a dream!

Sleeping Gems Gemma Axford


I am a mother to a gorgeous little boy, and we live in Winchester, Hampshire. 


Before qualifying as a Sleep Consultant, I worked as a Nanny for many years. I qualified in 2004 with a CACHE level 3 Diploma in Child Care and Education. 

I embarked on a once in a lifetime opportunity nanny position working abroad, when I was 18, which was an amazing life experience! I have worked with many families since then, back home in the UK...

What Well Rested Parents Say

"From day one Gemma was extremely encouraging, supportive and friendly. She spend time getting to know the needs of our family, and personalised the plan to suit us, she has ensured my son (age 8) could join in with the routine which was important to me. She was always on hand to answer questions, and be there when things didn’t go to plan, as Amelia definitely challenged us at times during the 14 days. 


I would highly recommend Gemma to anyone who needs help with their child’s sleep."


"Like most, at first I was hesitant to get the support from a sleep consultant for varying reasons, I wanted to be able to 'crack' it alone, I thought I knew what I was going to be told, I was fearful I would spend money and be no better off and I thought my child would be the one it wouldn't work on. Ha! How naïve was I!

Having known what I know now, I wish I'd never left it so long in booking Gemma. We will definitely be recommending her to all our friends with babies."


"All I can say is thank you SO SO much you have honestly been a LIFESAVER to our family.

Within the two weeks we have worked with you we have turned from a very sleep deprived household into one where we actually get an evening, and a full nights sleep!

I've been recommending you to everyone I know!


We will forever be grateful to the magical sleep lady, Gemma!
