Is your child...

  • Hyperactive, hard to control, nervous, agitated, explosive?
  • Experiencing separation anxiety, fearfulness, or general lack of confidence?
  • Caught up in the bullying dynamic?
  • Fighting with siblings or overly aggressive with others?
  • Having trouble sleeping or experiencing nightmares?
  • Stuck in habits like bedwetting or nail biting?
  • Struggling with eating or body image issues?
  • Dealing with health challenges such as skin rashes or falling sick frequently?
  • Struggling academically and often labelled with learning disabilities such as Autism or Asperger?
  • Troubled about parental separation or other issues in the family?
  • Not fulfilling the potential you know he/she has?

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.

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 – 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.

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.

6 Month Supported Training Course

I’m excited to be able to offer you some information about becoming a professional Goulding Process SleepTalk® for Children consultant.

The nature and depth of applicants’ formal qualifications will vary widely, but participants must be of mature age with a demonstrated desire to learn the techniques and strategies offered.

Current membership of an appropriate, relevant health-related professional association.

Each applicant needs to have an ability to cope with the academic and practical requirements of the course; and be motivated with, a desire to assist parents to implement the program. In addition, a sound level of emotional maturity and life experience will assist in empathising with, and appropriately respond to clients’ needs.

Importantly, applicants are required to make a commitment to applying the highest ethical standards in their work with the Goulding SleepTalk® process. To ensure the absolute integrity of the program, a police report will be required, even though the Goulding program does not require the Consultant to work directly with children.

The professional face to face training / Skype Training (practical aspects of the process) is supported over a period of 6 months with up to 120 nominal hours for assignments and case histories requirements. However, because of the specific requirements of individual participants being taken into account, the time frame may differ depending on specific circumstances. Competency is assessed throughout the course and includes workshop participation and written project-based case history documentation. The Intensive training being offered in Singapore is supported with meetings via Skype discussions and webinars.

Certification that the participant has attained the required levels of competency allows the graduate to apply basic and advanced strategies and techniques. Graduate Consultant’s certification allows the holder of that award to establish their own Goulding SleepTalk® practice and can apply to be registered on the SleepTalk® Consultants international register website.
