SleepTalk for Children header(copy)

An Opportunity to Expand your Business...

Increase your client base and your income. Add to your annual professional on-going training requirements by attending this certification training. 

The Goulding SleepTalk™ for Children process is an exciting and powerful self-esteem programme for children where you work with the parent(s), evaluating where their child is at each session, and teaching the parents the process step by step. The parents then utilise this special and unique process to help their children while they sleep.

Joane Goulding is the original creator of the SleepTalk™ process, and she has been travelling the world, teaching this programme in the UK, Spain, Singapore, as well ask her homeland Australia. Joane was the Keynote Speaker, talking about the process, at the New Zealand Hypnotherapy Federation Conference weekend a few years ago. She has also presented to the American Council of Hypnotherapist Examiners Conference (USA), and the Australian Hypnotherapists Association World Conference.


The first NZ training took place in New Zealand in 2009, to hypnotherapists and natural health professionals who wanted to become Accredited SleepTalk™ Consultants. Susan Wood & Roger Saxelby are the current New Zealand trainers in this powerful therapy.  


What SleepTalkTM is about...

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


The SleepTalk™ process is the best three-minute gift parents / caregivers can give their children, and it will last a lifetime.  The process is easy to learn, takes only a few minutes daily after the child is asleep. 


It’s absolutely safe, ethical and positive. SleepTalk™ is for you, if you are looking for a simple, non-intrusive self-esteem and behaviour change process which you teach to parents and/or caregivers.  The programme can help them achieve what they want most - happy children and happy families.


It is a practical, stress-free way for parents to help their child(ren). This will enable the children to maximise their potential.  Although it takes only a few minutes a day to present, the results last a lifetime. The process enhances a child’s ability to take control of their decision-making, develops attitudes of self-esteem and a confident self-image, and fosters positive behaviours. 

This unique process works in conjunction with any therapy.  And because it is non-intrusive, ethical and safe, with the benefits lasting forever, the Goulding SleepTalk™ process is endorsed by the Australian Medical and Psychological Professions.

What sort of the issues can SleepTalkTM help...

Below are just some of the many areas in a child's life that parents and caregivers can work with, helping create an environment in which the child’s self-esteem and confidence flourish…

  • Education, learning, study, recall, etc
  • Anger, aggression & bullying
  • Sibling rivalry, family enjoyment, etc.
  • Bedwetting / Nail biting / etc
  • Confidence and self-esteem
  • Fear, anxiety, and phobias
  • Eating, weight, etc.
  • ADHD, etc. 
  • Health and physical ability
  • Plus much more

In today’s challenging times, the SleepTalk™ process also instils resilience, giving children the confidence to say ”no” when that is appropriate. It helps to develop the positive relationships that parents want with their children – relationships that can permeate through the entire family.

This process is a safe, ethical and non-intrusive process, very simple and easy to use, and is suitable for any family and lasts a lifetime.  Many child health care professionals have been using the process for over 30 years.

Appointments with parents/caregivers are not restricted to face to face. With the internet & software like Skype, parents in other areas and countries, are accessible to you.
