SleepTalk for Children

Build your childs self esteem, and help them to be their best through SleepTalk™ for Children.

SleepTalk™ is a process of talking to your sleeping child in a way that is a little like hypnosis. Parents learn how select the best time to do SleepTalk™, how to access the right level of sleep, exactly what to say, and how to target specific problems. SleepTalk™ literally takes two or three minutes each night and it can create profound, positive change. There is a foundation process which uses a particular script for the first three weeks. Any remaining issues can then be specifically addressed with support suggestions in order of priority.

SleepTalk™ was developed by Melbourne practitioner, Joane Goulding, to help her own intellectually and physically disabled daughter. It proved so effective it is now taught world-wide with wonderful results.

What can it treat?

SleepTalk™ can be helpful in treating many childhood issues, including bedwetting, shyness, aggression, school performance, anxiety, eating problems, ADHD or Autism. Maybe your child’s behaviour is difficult and you can’t work out why. SleepTalk™ is recommended for all children up to 12 years of age, whether they have problems or not. We believe every parent should learn this process and every child could benefit from it.

How will it feel?

Your child will not be aware that you are using SleepTalk™. This avoids bringing the problem to their attention which can often make it worse. After an initial period of somewhere between 10 days to three weeks, they will simply wake up feeling happier and more positive. Often their behaviour will change and they are not sure why. For parents, it’s a very easy and enjoyable thing to do. No matter how difficult a child’s behaviour may have been throughout the day, once they are sleeping they can often seem like angels. This is a perfect time to build their self-esteem at a sub-conscious level, repeat positive suggestions and strengthen your relationship with them.

What benefits might my child receive?

Over time, SleepTalk™ changes your child’s underlying beliefs from negative to positive. It builds their self-esteem and can directly address specific problems. Many behaviour problems in children stem from one of three sub-conscious beliefs; “I am not safe”, “I don’t belong” or “I am not good enough”. No matter what you might do and say throughout the day, these beliefs can be hard to shift. SleepTalk™ can address these negative beliefs and create a new positive mind set. Difficult behaviour will then often resolve all by itself. For any residual problems you will learn how to specifically target the underlying beliefs and change them.

How can I learn SleepTalk for Children?

It’s best to learn SleepTalk™ from an Accredited SleepTalk™ Coach. At Simply Natural Therapies you can make an appointment with Alison Burton. Alison has taught this process to hundreds of parents over the past 15 years and has used SleepTalk™ successfully with her own children. It’s great if both parents can attend but not essential. You DO NOT need to bring your child.

Alison is available to teach this process to groups at schools and preschools in the Melbourne area.

How many sessions will I need?

One 60 minute session is usually sufficient to learn SleepTalk™. We offer ongoing support either in person or by phone as needed. If your child has health issues, we sometimes recommend working in conjunction with our Naturopath. It can be helpful to rule out any underlying biochemical or nutritional problems.
