Additional coaches The Sleep Agency

Loes van Rijn – Amsterdam

Mijn naam is Loes van Rijn en ik ben sinds 2018 gecertificeerd Gentle Sleep Coach. Ook ik ben een voormalig slapeloze moeder: de twee lange jaren met twee slecht slapende kinderen zorgde ervoor dat we niet meer normaal konden functioneren. Gelukkig was daar Susanne en met haar hulp sliepen we allemaal binnen een paar weken weer volle nachten. Een life changer!
Deze ervaring gunde ik meer ouders, ik besloot op te laten leiden tot Gentle Sleep Coach en me bij The Sleep Agency aan te sluiten als kinderslaapcoach. Nu combineer ik het coachen van families met mijn werk als onderzoeker en docent aan de Universiteit van Amsterdam bij de afdeling Pedagogische Wetenschappen. Het volop in de praktijk meedraaien en gehele gezinnen meer slaap en rust te bezorgen, naast mijn werk in de wetenschappelijke toren, geeft een enorme energie boost.

Jorinde Dumans – Haarlem

After working as a lawyer for 7 years, I was ready for a new chapter in my life and completed the Gentle Sleep Coach training in 2019. I have two daughters who are almost 1.5 and 3 years old. I know all about sleep deprivation and what you gain with finally sleeping well again. The world looks totally different when you are rested! I have always been drwan to the power of sleep. A good night’s sleep is essential for both your physical and psychological health. As a mother, I am also aware of the effects of (lack of) sleep for an entire family. The great thing about my work is that coaching has a positive effect on both the child and the parents. I think it is very valuable that I can help parents with this piece of the puzzle and I enjoy doing it!

 

 

 

 

Faye Wagenmans Schaper – Muiden (currently on maternity leave)

I’m Faye Wagenmans Schaper, a mother who experienced sleep problems at first hand and since 2018, a Certified Gentle Sleep Coach at The Sleep Agency. My husband and I have a son called James and are expecting our second child this year. After months of sleep deprivation and dealing with a fussy baby we decided to find help and learned how we could coach our son to fall asleep. This was a real eye-opener! Nobody told us that this was possible in a gentle and loving way and in some cases even necessary to change the situation. This success and insight have been the kick start of my professional career as a Gentle Sleep Coach.
As a trained behavioral expert, someone who experienced sleep problems at first hand and a Gentle Sleep Coach it is my goal to help family’s change their situation and bring back peace and calmness into their family. Along the road sleep coaching even brought me the title The Sleep Fairy (‘De Slaapfee’) which I carry with pride!
