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

The Goulding 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.

My licenced endorsed Trainers and Consultants identified on this original and Official International Register are fully trained and accredited to present my Method to your family.  The Goulding Method® is for modern parent’s custodian to future generations.

After many years of bringing my parenting approach to the world, I’m confident that my Method is no longer simply a ‘process’. I’ve  proven to have assisted families to raise emotionally secure children and I’m proud my Method has touched every community across the globe. I created the process that is now a trusted Method.


Joane Goulding created this effective drug free Method offering parents a loving, effective, self-empowering opportunity to support their family. It is a simple, safe process for parents wanting to assist their children to establish a sense of emotional intelligence, loving attachment and acceptance. The Method is taught by accredited members of the healing professions around the world.

The Method offers a simplistic yet very dynamic process of providing supportive and solution focused suggestions presented to a sleeping child by parents each evening. The presented suggestions access the awareness of the child’s subconscious mind when receptive to alternative thoughts. It’s basically a simple cost effective solutions even for those families with children without issues and anxiety. The Method has been offered to parents as an alternative substance-free, self-help option for many years. It’s a very safe, simple, ethical and non-intrusive process that parents can apply in the safety and comfort of their own home while their child or children are actually asleep. It’s great for parents, because the little one is asleep and doesn’t talk back!

The Goulding Method, created way back in 1974, has assisted so many families. Initially created to support a specific situation, the method now assists and supports all children.

It is a non-invasive Method parents can present without cost or drugs as long as there is commitment to the Method, consistent presentation each evening and compliance following the suggestions.

The proven Method reminds children they are loveable and have the right to be loved, reinforcing a feeling of being unconditionally loved.

The strength of the Method is its simplicity both in content and application. Allowing acceptance of emotional hugs and creating happiness insurance, a gift that keeps on giving for life. It’s a gentle Method establishing emotional intelligence and a sense of independence, attachment and acceptance. 

It’s not what we leave to our children that matters.  It’s the knowledge that we leave in their minds.

As parents, you talk, they listen – creating happiness while they sleep. The Goulding Method is about supporting parents and children with a gift that lasts a life time.
