FAQ- How Does Our Sleep Consultancy Work?

Sleep Consultations with Amanda Bude from Groovy Babies consists of the following:

Initial Intake 15-30 minutes

Our first phone conversation involves a brief discussion where you are providing me overview of your challenges and circumstances so I can decide how to best support you. This may involve a referral out when necessary.


I will provide you with a questionnaire that evaluates all areas related to sleep challenges so I can determine your plan and which action steps to take. I will review your questionnaire before our first scheduled session, and will address follow up questions during our session

Scheduled Session

Sessions may consist of an In-home visit, Skype Call or Phone Call.  Any questions related to the evaluation will be discussed at this time. Based on my evaluation and follow up questions, a plan will be created. Families typically utilize anywhere from 3-8 sessions. Depending on outcome, continued support with additional sessions may be necessary.


Email is used to ask simple questions, schedule sessions, provide information, handouts, agreements etc. If the question(s) emailed requires an in-depth answer, we will schedule a phone consultation.


Text is only utilized in case of an emergency. For example to notify me you need to cancel a session that is scheduled in one hour.

“Brief Call” Consults

If you have a quick question in between our scheduled sessions you’d like to discuss by phone, we can set up a brief call. Most questions are answered within 5-10 minutes. If your question requires more time involved, we will schedule a 30 minute or 60 minute phone session.

“Follow Up” Consults

Once our sessions and time together is complete, if you find yourself needing more support or having more questions, please email me and we will schedule a brief 15 minute intake to discuss what is going on and how I can best support. From there we will determine how I can best support you.

I also offer retainer packages to all clients in 3 month blocks. This prevents  months down the track having to do a new evaluation again.
