What is SleepTalk®?

Before we tell you about the training, please read below what SleepTalk is and what it can do for children and their parents of course..

“You talk – they listen – creating happy children while they sleep.”

The SleepTalk process is a unique, parent-delivered process that acts as the mind’s emotional firewall for children. It improves self-esteem, improves behaviour and deals with a variety of behavioural disorders. Created by Joane Goulding and proven through use by thousands of parents and their children, SleepTalk® is one of the most remarkable child development tools ever created.

SleepTalk is a 2 minute gift to a child, that lasts a lifetime. It is a safe, simple and very effective method for parents to help their child with issues while it sleeps. The child stays in its own safe environment and the bond between the parents and the child is strengthened. It is developed for children from 18 months to 14 years and has been used all over the world for more than 30 years. You can learn the SleepTalk program in the Hypnosecentrum Haarlemmermeer and become a SleepTalk Consultant.


Damaging a child
a childs brain accepts negative suggestions just as easily as positive suggestions. A child under 8 does not have a filter to screen incoming information to decide whether this information is true/acceptable or not. If you would tell a grown up that he is stupid, that grown up will not accept that suggestion. A child however will believe it is stupid. The child feels unsafe, insecure and rejected and that will have impact on the rest of the child’s life.. You can not erase what has been said, but you can certainly limit the consequences.

As a SleepTalk Consultant you will be able to teach parents how to use the SleepTalk process with their own children in only 2 minutes a day.
