Dr Mark Lauderdale MD FRCPC credentials
Use the knowledge and experience of a seasoned professional

Dr Mark Lauderdale is a child and adolescent psychiatrist with over 30 years experience helping children with anxieties and fears.

  • Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians (Canada).
  • Past President of the Canadian Society of Clinical Hypnosis (Alberta),
  • Previously an Associate Professor of Psychiatry with the University of Calgary

Use a proven method with exceptional results

The Wellspring Method was developed and refined over 20 years in clinical practice.

  • It is several effective therapies blended together into one step-by-step process.
  • It helps children feel strong and confident when facing a challenge, such as the nighttime fears and anxiety they experience when sleeping in a darkened room.
  • In a case review of children with clinical sleep anxiety, 84% were totally improved and another 10% were partially improved.
  • The Wellspring Method is currently the focus of a research study at the University of Victoria.
Stop searching for the solution to your child's nighttime fears and anxiety - you've found it.

Be careful with sleep anxiety tips and strategies you find on the internet.

  • Every time you use advice that fails, it reinforces your child's belief that they can’t learn to sleep alone.
  • Children like the feeling of learning to do something on their own (internet tips and strategies don't always support this).
  • The key to real change is that it occurs best from the inside out.
  • Bedtime Hero motivates and assists your child to solve their sleep problem themselves.

Give Your Child the Confidence They Need
to Sleep through the Night in their Own Bed

1. Prepare your child for a positive change

Review the QuickStart Guide for parents to get an overview of the program. Learn how to address the problem with your child to start things off on the right foot.

2. Use the engaging step-by-step program with your child

The program is a series of therapy sessions between Dr Lauderdale and your child. Dr Lauderdale’s voice guides your child through the steps as an animated character demonstrates what to do. Your role as a parent is to support your child in following the instructions and helping them record their thoughts and ideas.
