How Sleeptalk will help your child using this evidence-based proven safe Method

Sleeptalk for Children®  now known as The Goulding Sleeptalk Method® is a child-focused consulting modality for Therapists, Consultants, Teachers, and other professionals who are working with children and/or parents.

The main objective of the Method is to help parents develop mentally and emotionally balanced, self-confident, and caring adults from their children.

The most unique (and most powerful) element of The Goulding Method® is, that it gives the parents a simple yet powerful tool with which they can actively participate in this development.

This main technique is called the Sleeptalk Process.

A Goulding Method® Consultant teaches parents and/or primary carers a simple, safe, client centred, drug and substance free ethical process, that they are able to utilize to support their own child(ren). It only takes a few moments each evening to deliver, by repeating precisely designed affirmations after their child falls asleep.

The Goulding Method® accredited consultant offers ongoing emotional support and monitors the process, to ensure continued motivation and daily application for a minimum of 3 months. The consultant uses the standardised: “Where Does My Child Stand Now?” mind profile questionnaire to determine the Physical, Academic, Behavioural, Emotional and Social changes in the child, and offers adjustment of the application accordingly.

The Goulding Method® reminds children they are lovable and have the right to be loved, reinforcing a feeling of being unconditionally loved. The strength of the process is its simplicity both in content and application. Allowing acceptance of emotional hugs and creating ‘happiness insurance’, is a gift that keeps on giving for life. It’s a gentle Method establishing emotional intelligence and a sense of independence, attachment and acceptance.

Parents (and adoptive parents) can learn to apply this Method themselves using our learning resources, or work with a registered Goulding Method® Consultant for extra peace of mind.
