If so, we might be able to help...

The Goulding Process, ‘SleepTalk® for Children’, is a wonderful non-invasive safe, fast (2 minutes) process that you, the parent or guardian, conduct with your child in your home after your child has gone to sleep.

It has been successful in resolving all the issues mentioned above, sometimes in as a little as a few days, and has been used effectively by thousands of families around the world over the last 40 years since its founders, Joane and Jim Goulding, developed the process for their daughter Michelle with astounding results.

Watch the interview between Joane Goulding and Hasnah, Founder of Positive Focus.

Even if your child has none of those issues but you want to ensure s/he feels deeply loved, secure, confident and is growing up with all the right beliefs to live an empowered and productive life, then SleepTalk® is also for you.

Strengthen your Child’s Emotional Resilience (2 yrs – 14 yrs)

The Goulding SleepTalk® process is the two-minute gift you give your children that lasts a lifetime. The Goulding SleepTalk® process is easy to learn, takes parents only a few minutes daily at bedtime, and it can’t be “done wrong”.

It’s absolutely safe, ethical and positive.

SleepTalk® is for people who are looking for a simple, non-intrusive self-esteem and behaviour change process for children, that can help parents achieve what they want most – happy children and happy families.The process is about developing a child’s emotional resilience, the mind’s firewall, which protects against negative suggestions; much like a firewall on a computer protects it from outside interference and damage.

”The Goulding Process appears to activate neuroplasticity.

See recommended books by Norman Doige MD and Dr. Joe Dispenza D.C.

Most of us would agree that it is difficult for children to confidently deal with issues in their life if they are anxious, fearful, unhappy or even believe they are unloved or unloveable. Children trying to cope with bedwetting, for example, can be anxious, sad, and lack self-confidence. Children given the label ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) may in fact, be trying to deal with their world and their family.

Learned helplessness occurs with children in almost any family, and suggestions accepted as truth become part of the belief system of their subconscious minds.

Younger children are especially vulnerable, accepting negative suggestions with the same energy as positive ones.

If your child’s belief structure is one based largely on fear or lack of confidence, a feeling of rejection or inadequacy, the ensuing decisions made by their conscious mind will of course, reflect those beliefs.

Why The Goulding SleepTalk® process?

  • The Goulding SleepTalk® process empowers parents to help their children to achieve self-confidence and inner strength.
  • The Goulding SleepTalk® process empowers parents to give their children positive suggestions to help with general and specific issues in their lives.
  • The Goulding SleepTalk® process gives parents a second chance to undo the possible harms caused by unkind words they may have said to their children during a busy day.
  • The Goulding SleepTalk® process is a safe, ethical and non-intrusive process suitable for any family and lasts for life.
  • Children’s healthcare professionals have been using The Goulding SleepTalk® process for over 30 years.

Some Feedback from a The Goulding SleepTalk® process Consultant...

“I can only say (the child) has exhibited some excellent improvements and some outstanding breakthroughs not just at school, but in his home environment as well. I do believe a lot of it was related to his lack of confidence and lack of belief in himself, and now he is coming on in leaps and bounds.
Thank you so much for bringing such a beautiful gift and tool into the world dear Joane. You have truly been blessed with a very precious and amazing talent. It truly does create miracles in the lives of children and their parents.”

What others say about The Goulding SleepTalk® process...

“SleepTalk® is a sensible practical and easy-to-follow method of communication important messages to the subconscious mind. This process should be used by all parents, educators and health professionals and the practice adopted in the management of all disorders in which the mind plays a significant role.”

Dr. Eileen Feeney
MB, BCh, BAO, DCH, FRANZCP Registered MD and Psychiatrist

“By hearing enough examples of positive and effective thoughts, delivered by a person with whom the child enjoys a close and loving relationship, the child can eventually discard negative feelings and self-defeating statements and replace them with powerful and useful ones. In this sense SleepTalk® shares many parallels with a well recognised psychological therapeutic approach known as self-instruction or self-verbalisation.”

Professor Ian Brighthope
MBBS, Dip Ag Sci, FACNEM, FASEM, MAIAST. Fellow of Australasian College of Nutritional and Environmental Medicine
