What is SleepTalk®

SleepTalk® is ‘Happiness Insurance’ which is just as important as ‘Health Insurance’

The Goulding SleepTalk® process which incorporates the ‘Top Hat’ technique, allows the subconscious mind of a child to redefine its belief structure and accept alternate suggestions which upon awakening becomes their truth and reality. Not all children need this process but it’s a given that they will all benefit from it.

Children are our future and as parents we need to recognise this with a sense of urgency. If we are to take care of the children, we need to take care of the now. It’s not what we leave to our children that matters, it’s the knowledge that we leave within their minds.

This two minute gift creates changes that last a lifetime.

The Goulding SleepTalk® process is for children with difficulties, and children with none. It’s for every parent who wants their children to reach their potential, whatever that potential may be.

The Goulding SleepTalk® process isn’t a cure for illnesses, but a gentle way to enhance children’s self-esteem and make their lives more positive. You have only to read our testimonials and case studies to see that. It’s about fertilising your child’s mind with the power of the positive, and giving your child the greatest gift of all: an attitude of happiness and confident self-esteem.

“SleepTalk is about giving emotional hugs to our children –
not just physical hugs.”

Joane Goulding

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 SleepTalk® Process appears to activate neuroplasticity and research is currently being conducted both in Australia and Singapore. 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 un-loveable. Children trying to cope with bed-wetting, 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. Indigo* or Crystal* children may have been incorporated under this label. And what, you may ask, are Indigo or Crystal children? That has been presented as an alternative way to describe children who are sometimes labelled as “ADHD” or “ADD”. These are in fact beautiful children, and you may want to check the links that describe such children in a MUCH more helpful light. “They” say that sticks and stones may break one’s bones, but names can never hurt me … but we all know that names CAN hurt, and they can hurt very much. More about Crystal and Indigo children. *Not all Crystal or Indigo children will exhibit all the characteristics mentioned, however it is likely that many similarities will be observed.

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.

Some Feedback from a Goulding SleepTalk® 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.
