SleepTalk – the Number 1 Self Esteem program for Children

Positive Parenting with SleepTalk® for Children – Australia

Welcome to

My name is Joane Goulding and I am the founder of SleepTalk® for Children Process.

developed The SleepTalk® process in Australia with the assistance of my husband, Jim Goulding — to help our daughter Michelle.

Since then, it has now been developed and refined so that SleepTalk® is a Self-Esteem Program for Children that can be done by parents, grandparents  and guardians. It is available as a paperback book, a video program and downloadable pdfs in over 12 languages.

So, what exactly is SleepTalk®?

In brief, SleepTalk ® is an auto-suggestion technique that allows parents to speak directly with the subconscious mind while your children sleep.

The Goulding Sleep Talk® process is an alternative and substance-free self-help process for parents coping with a challenging child. Sometimes a lack of knowledge, assistance and/or family support can cause parents to doubt their parenting abilities, feel misunderstood and on a merry-go-round of endless consultations and dead ends.

This process is about presenting a substance-free, safe, non- intrusive and ethical process for parents to use in the safety and comfort of their own home while their child or children are asleep and it’s easy to apply.

SleepTalk® is for every parent who wants their children to reach their full potential, and to re-affirm their love to their children.

SleepTalk® is about teaching parents to work with their own children while they sleep and when they awaken children have a more positive mind set. It only takes parents about 2 minutes per evening and the changes last for life. Parents talk – children listen – waking up bright and happy.

Positive feedback has been received for issues dealing with aggression, behaviour management, stress, fear, anxiety and trauma. The process is particularly helpful when dealing with issues around education and study, co-operation and concentration.

Health issues also respond in a positive manner, such as asthma, bed-wetting, nail biting and speech. It also covers and assists families concerned about sibling rivalry and negative communications.

Sleep Talk ® is about developing a child’s emotional resilience and self esteem.

SleepTalk® allows the subconscious mind of a child to redefine its belief structure and accept alternate positive suggestions, which upon awakening becomes their truth and reality. Not all children need this process but it’s a given that they will all benefit from it.

SleepTalk ® gives children the best possible start in life of feeling loved, lovable and confident within themselves.

What the Professionals Say

“Children deal with trauma in a different way to adults, often not able to express what they are feeling as a result of any trauma. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is one of the most debilitating anxiety disorders, creating a number of behavioural and emotional changes in children that, if not treated properly, stay with the child for the rest of his or her life. PTSD is formed when the unconscious mind is involved in death, disaster, rape or early physical danger.

SleepTalk® has been shown to be one of the most effective ways of treating such traumas in children, bypassing the normal communication methods and allowing the unconscious to let go of the intrusive thoughts, flashbacks and anger associated with such memories.

Using strategies that the unconscious understands, SleepTalk® forms a direct path to the parts of the memory holding high levels of anxiety and distress, encouraging the mind to reframe the original event and strengthening the self-image and an awareness of safety. With the parents involved in the process that awareness of safety is enhanced. I highly recommend SleepTalk® for all anxiety disorders in children.”
