Testimonial by a SleepTalk Parent

I am very embarrassed to be writing to you, so long after I completed the SleepTalk course with you.

If you remember, at the time I was pregnant and had a 6 year old boy named “A” and and a 4 year old girl named “S”. I now also have a gorgeous 1 year old baby girl named “O”.

I really wanted to let you know how fabulous your course has been for our family. My older children are so much more confident and resilient.

“S” often says – “it is getting better and better,” with a huge smile on her face!

“A” is feeling far more relaxed and has a more positive “can-do” approach to life.

Perhaps the most obvious and remarkable thing of all is the reaction that baby “O” has to the SleepTalk words.

When “O” was only a few months old, I tried to put her down into her cot without cuddling her to sleep, and this change caused her to cry and become quite distressed. After rubbing her back and trying to sing (without much success,) I started to softly repeat the SleepTalk sentences.

Even through her now piercing screams, the words and the tone of my voice obviously struck a distinct memory within her – as I had begun the SleepTalk process when I was three months pregnant with her.

The crying immediately stopped and “O” swivelled her head towards me and gazed up in wonder. I really have never seen anything like it.

I kept repeating the sentences over and over until she calmly got herself off to sleep!

Since then I have been using the SleepTalk method with “O” and she truly is the most happy, contented and calm little baby.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you for all your faith, efforts and commitment to this work – it truly is miraculous.

“We have been continuing doing our SleepTalk® and have observed some pretty great developments with ‘N’ which are more obvious since his return to school. He seems to have acquired a whole new work ethic and is participating in school work activities and seems to be generalizing this knowledge outside of his school environment and is even doing some academic work ‘just for fun’! Oh My Goodness, I am so very thrilled about this!!”

It is amazing. Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!”

“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. The Goulding Process – 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.”

It is also a lovely time for me to go into his room at night and whisper to him which is a nice end to the day regardless of it being a good day or not. He is definitely waking up ‘bright and happy’ these days – we love it!”
