By listening to a simple  story at night can help you to switch off your busy mind and relax.

Focusing your mind and listening to this soothing story will slow down your mind and relax your body, making it easier for you to go into a deeper and more restorative sleep.


I speak much slower than I would if I was telling you a story in the day time, for to sleep you need to slow down your mind.


By slowing down your mind, you can then drift into the slower brain pattern of light sleep and then go deeper into a restorative, healing sleep.


 The first in this series of bedtime stories is The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett. You can buy it from my website or from iTunes or CD Baby…see options below.

There are also other short stories – all for only $4.99 ….please click here for these. PLEASE CHOOSE THE ONE THAT IS BEST FOR YOUR DOWNLOADING –  iTunes, CD Baby or as mp3’s from my website.  


Since i tunes have changed their billing methods recently and are encouraging people to join their membership site I suggest that you buy Storytime through CD baby – it’s also cheaper. For only $9.99 you get all 53 chapters of Storytime in mp3 format.

Just click on the image below – it will take you to their secure site. 




If you want to buy through i tunes – it is still possible to do so  by clicking on the i tunes image  below.

If you want to buy through my site – I have left this option up for you…… however, please note this way of downloading is not as user friendly as either of the two methods above.

I use dropbox to download all files at once and Soundcloud for the individual tracks. Soundcloud is great for downloading individual tracks but not the whole album.  Even though this method is more time consuming – due to requests – I have decided to leave it up as an option but please note I don’t think it is the best option. 


 Paypal is a very safe way of paying  – you get access to all 53 chapters on my website through Soundcloud plus a zip file.


 I’m still finishing off Storytime 2 – it’s taken me longer than expected for I’m now back working in medicine.
If you would like to buy the first four short stories of Storytime 2 – click on this link please.
I hope you enjoy Storytime 1 and 2.
If you have any question or any problems with this please contact me directly on
I am a real person – just an e mail away.

“I am LOVING The Secret Garden recording. It took me close to 8 days before I got through the first chapter because I kept falling asleep midway! “
Amy, USA
“Story time takes my mind away from all the stress and anxiety of the day. It’s absolutely fantastic.”
Diane, Cape Town
“Your story time has been a welcomed key to falling asleep, as well as being a endearing experience of sweetness. I will even begin a chapter several times in the event I have fallen asleep 2 minutes into it and sometimes wake in the middle of the night and listen again. It has quickly become part of my routine. Last night the internet went out  but with just the thought of your voice and repetition of the words, a wave of relaxation and comfort spread through my whole body, changing the chemistry and I became immediately relaxed….and then I imagined myself as a child, being in the secret garden with the children from the story. ….and drifted off to sleep. Pretty cool!”
Carmen, USA.
“I thought Storytime would be too girly for me but it wasn’t. Being so busy in the day in my work I very much enjoyed listening to a chapter every night. It slowed down my mind so that I could sleep.”
Marketing man USA.
“Thank you Dr Caroline for helping me to sleep during a very stressful time of my life. I just adore your soothing voice and I feel like I am again a small child when you read to me. I feel nurtured, safe and secure. The Secret Garden has always been a favorite story of mine as a child. I love it even more now and look forward to bedtime these days!”
“My sister has an autistic son of 11 yrs old. I told her about Storytime. After one of his “episodes” she turns on Storytime to calm him down and soothe him. It works. He has been missing a lot of school due to his behaviour. This really does help.”
