About 

  
Hello & a warm welcome to the home of The Behaviour Fairy!

Where it all began

I'm Chelsie, a private Nanny, Child Behaviour and Parenting specialist based in Cambridgeshire, UK. I am the owner and founder of The Behaviour Fairy (TBF), which was established in 2016 when I left my career in nursery management on a mission!​​

As cliché as it may sound, I have always known that I wanted to work with children. Being the eldest of five children and playing 'mini mum' from a young age theoretically should have put me off. However it actually inspired me and from the day I was old enough for employment I ventured into the world of childcare. From nurseries, to SEND schools, to childminding and night nannying, I loved every minute of it.

But, it wasn't until I found myself as a new Deputy Manager of a failing nursery and an office full of worried staff and parents that I fell (quite literally) into the role I'm in today. I spent days in the office query after query, from parents and practitioners who had never had any professional support nor ever been pointed in the right direction for simple advice. Parents whose children were displaying behaviours of concern, left without recommendations of routes for support, exhausted parents of pre-schoolers who couldn’t grasp toileting and staff juggling reflux, sleep routines and weaning with no information to guide them through.

I found myself enrolling in course after course to extend my knowledge in areas I’d never before even considered. Although the office slowly started to empty, I knew that there were hundreds, maybe thousands of parents out there who were still questioning themselves, their methods and their ability to parent. Parents who just need a little honest, professional, tried and tested advice, to get them and their family back on track. So, many more courses, a degree, a house move and a year later I started my TBF journey!

Today

Now TBF is growing by the day and (almost!) as quickly as new clients come and join the TBF community, new and exciting support services are being added! I am now able to offer a range of different consultancy services, covering all aspects of child behaviour and parenting Worldwide. So, if you are reading this right now and think we may be able to help you and your family get back on track, contact us or if you already know what type of consultation you require head to the shop section to book now. Don’t forget to follow us on socials and subscribe to the monthly newsletter, so you won’t miss a thing!


Please note u​nfortunately despite my best efforts I am not a real Fairy! Therefore when requesting my professional support and advice please do not expect 'quick fixes'. Most sleep and behaviour related issues take time, effort and commitment in order to be able to make positive changes. I see babies and children as individuals with unique characters and needs, therefore in my work I do not take a 'one size fits all' approach.

​Remember help is just a wish away- Chelsie x

 Testimonials 

''Helped me regain control!''

‘We battled the biting stage for far too long! To the point where it turned into rather aggressive behaviour at the age of just three. After being called into a meeting with my Son’s room leader at Nursery due to his worrying behaviour, I decided enough was enough!! I’m so glad we found ‘The Behaviour Fairy’, I did not at first want to admit that I needed advice, but Chelsie made me feel so comfortable. Her advice and continued support over the past two months has helped me regain control, Mum is back!


''I don't know why I thought I could cope!''

When I contacted Chelsie on the off chance after being recommended by a friend, I didn't really know what I was hoping to achieve! I was so sleep deprived, I think I was just on autopilot!

Within 2 days of contacting I had a full email consultation and sleep plan ready for that weekend! After 2 weeks Rosie had already made huge improvements and most importantly I learned how to manage her sleep and get some of my own!
''I don't feel like a bad parent.''

I have two boys and one with a recent diagnosis of ASD, whose behaviour is extremely challenging and very difficult to watch. Many meetings with many different professionals still didn't give me the confidence I needed to deal with the situation I faced everyday. Chelsie really related to us and although was always professional, felt like a friend who could give me helpful strategies and tips to get me through each day without judgement. Every ASD Mum should have a Chelsie.

''Everything I needed in one place.''

As a new mum of twins, I automatically wanted to 'get it right' and brought several books on parenting and juggling double trouble! What I didn't know at the time was that there was soo much information that contradicted the other and ended up following 4 different advice books on weaning, sleep routines and managing seperation anxiety in the first year. A colleague reccomended I look up The Behaviour Fairy to see if I could answer some my list of growing questions! I was skeptical but after exploring the site I arranged a phone consultation with Chelsea to try and make sense of my years worth of worries (mostly concerning my failing routine!!). I was incredibly impressed that Chelsea had such a wealth of knowledge and was able to give me practical, professional and frank advice. I am now Mum to 2.5 year old twin girls with another girl on the way (eek!!) I don't think I would ever have considered another baby as I stood a year ago. 

''We just needed a different way''

I'm a single Dad with a mild learning disability, who has a Son of 4 years who also has a learning disability. I have learned to manage my own issues as I have grown older, but was unsure how to go about helping my Son understand his and help him to get a good start at school. Chelsea advised a home meeting to see how to support us. Sam took to her straight away and her ideas and advice were easy to follow and have given me a real confidance boost.
