Amanda Jenner

Amanda Jenner

Potty Training Guru and Child Behavioural Expert

With decades of experience, Amanda gives parents the confidence to think differently when approaching the challenge of potty training and children’s behavioural difficulties. A firm favourite with parents, celebrities, press and the education sector alike, Amanda’s career took off when she launched the world’s only 100% leak-proof potty ‘My Carry Potty’ in 2009. She has since revolutionised the industry and helped millions of parents to toilet train their little ones worldwide. Amanda’s next venture saw her launching The Potty Training Academy, which works to reduce nappy waste in nursery schools throughout the country and has saved thousands of nappies going to landfill. The academy also helps parents and nursery workers to toilet train having found there was a huge increase in children starting school in nappies.

 

In April 2019, Amanda published her first book ‘Potty Training Magic’ with Penguin Books, which soared to the number one bestseller spot within the ‘Parenting and Toilet Training’ Amazon chart – it sold thousands of copies within its first two weeks alone. Using her years of experience, the book broaches every conceivable problem, and is also suitable for parents with children who have learning difficulties and selective eating habits. With Amanda’s super-easy playful plan there’s no excuse to delay potty training.

 

Amanda is the longest established and most experienced toilet training expert in the UK today and has featured on hit television shows including ‘Channel 4 Too Posh to Parent’, ‘ITV This Morning’ and ‘BBC The One Show’. Celebrity clients include Charlotte Tilbury, Lily Cole, Kate Kane, Luisa Zissman and Ferne McCann to name just a few. Amanda is also in high demand for general parenting advice and guidance during key stages of child development and works with older children with disadvantaged backgrounds. She has won multiple awards for My Carry Potty and The Potty Training Academy through her business and entrepreneurial innovation.

James Wilson

James Wilson, known as The Sleep Geek, is one of the UK’s leading sleep behaviour experts, helping people nationwide to solve their sleep issues. As well as assisting people to sleep better, James’ Sleep Lab works alongside household companies such as the NHS and Coca-Cola in producing products, services and environments to ensure everyone can get the sleep they deserve.

 

Having suffered from insomnia from a young age, and confused by the support on offer from the medical profession and Sleep Experts at the time, James decided to tackle the problem hands-on in his late twenties by training as a sleep practitioner. This, along with his personal experience with poor sleep, gave him a unique insight in helping people to solve their sleep issues, and so The Sleep Geek was born. Working closely with his clients, James provides a clear and concise programme which is individually tailored to their personal needs (suitable for teenagers and adults). He also offers an informative sleep guide to help parents with younger children too.
