Hi, my name is Fiona. I’m a child development specialist and sleep therapist and mother of two amazing children Karni aged 19 and Ori aged 15. The Baby Base Center was founded in 2009, since then I have been able to treat families all over the world and take part in health conventions in sleep and development.
I graduated from Oxford in 1994 with a Bachelor’s degree in Physiology. Postgraduate in movement therapy ADMT and occupational therapy. When moving to Israel I continued my studies graduating from Tel Aviv University accredited dance program. Following this I entered the world of pediatric sleep, studying circadian disorders, sleep patterns, completing studies in diagnosing and treating sleep disorders in the pediatric population: Insomnia in early Childhood – AMA PRA category. I am currently a member of the British Sleep Society, The International Association of Child Sleep Consultants and the American Academy of Sleep medicine
From personal experience as a therapist throughout my life I see a close connection between physical movement and its therapeutic benefits to improve the mental and physical well-being of a person. These insights I apply with occupational therapy, diagnostic & developmental counselling and sleep therapy. My Therapy programs are viewed not only from a health viewpoint, but with an objective eye treating any other issues such as diet, development or behaviour.
As a trained professional I have years of experience treating children with developmental delays or severe disabilities and i’ve had the honor to help hundreds of families worldwide.
