  • 3 x video consultations with Dorothy via any of the channels mentioned above. (Phone consultations can be offered as an alternative.)
  • Further email support between video consultations
  • A follow-up video appointment may also be booked as and when required, as discussed with Dorothy.
  • If needed, tutorials, videos and charts will also be provided to help your parenting journey.

During each consultation, clients will have the opportunity to make notes, ask questions and create a plan with Dorothy. Additional questions after the appointment can be emailed through to Dorothy who will respond with possible suggestions and feedback.

  • The initial video consultation with Dorothy will take anywhere between 30 minutes to a maximum of two hours, dependent on each child’s needs and/or age of baby.
  • The second video consultation will take place 10 days after the initial appointment. It will last anywhere between 30 minutes and up to an hour and you will discuss how the plan is working and what the next steps are. It is very common at this stage for parents to feel as though they haven’t made the steps in the right direction, so this is a chance to go over what is happening and amend accordingly to get things back on track.
  • Finally, the third video consultation will take anywhere between 30 minutes and up to an hour. It will focus on finalising the routine that parents can work towards over the longer term.

If you are struggling in between the first and third appointments, Dorothy may offer further support via email and phone at her discretion.

  • Dorothy On Tap (D.O.T) is like having professional help β€œon tap” over a month period. This is ideal for parents who need support as they go.
  • D.O.T allows you to email or text Dorothy for ongoing advice, support and assistance.
  • You will receive a personalised response, normally within 24 hours or less.

This package consists of the following:

  • 4 calls (30min-60min each) per month, ideally 10 days apart
  • One email/text per week if required

Note: if you’d prefer to use D.O.T as a more casual support package and only expect to use one call per month then it will be extended out for a 4 month period maximum at Dorothy’s discretion.  

The best way to contact Dorothy to book a call is via text or email. In her experience, calls are best approximately 10 days apart to allow time for changes in routine to take effect or depending on the individual situation at the discretion of Dorothy.

On the D.O.T package, you can contact Dorothy via text or email between 8am and 7pm Monday to Saturday inclusive. Dorothy will respond within a maximum of 24 hours but will endeavour to get back to you within the hour of receiving your message.

Please note – This is a monthly subscription service. In order to have access to the Dorothy On Tap service, the monthly fee must be paid in advance (by the 20th of the month prior) for the following month.
