Research into the Benefits of the Goulding Process – SleepTalk™ for Children

Our organisation was commissioned by Joane Goulding to conduct research into the outcomes and effectiveness of their product: The Goulding Process – SleepTalk™ for Children. Over a period of some months we studied the history of SleepTalk™, monitored the progress of children involved in SleepTalk™ and received ongoing feedback from parents by way of self-administered questionnaires.

Our research into the process began with a discussion of SleepTalk™ with its creator, Joane Goulding, and continued through the briefing of the program’s facilitators and support staff. Observations made over this period suggest a long history and much experience has led to the inception of SleepTalk for Children™.

A major component of our evaluation of SleepTalk™ for Children was an international literature search into the theoretical basis of the process. The outcomes of this aspect of our research are outlined in this report.
