Why would the Goulding Process of SleepTalk® be a great addition to your practice?

As a hypnotist or therapist, how often do you work with children, and then they are back in their same environments?   Parents become a huge part of this process, and the shift occurs for all involved.

  • It opens doors easier for presenting to schools, churches, and parent groups
  • It opens the possibility of working with other family members
  • Increases your client base
  • Easy to use skype for your sessions
  • Great for Group Intros and classes
  • and much more

What are the basics of SleepTalk® for Children?

  • You train parents to talk to their children during their sleep.
  • A simple non-intrusive self esteem and behavior change process for children
  • Parents give children a 2-3 minute per night “gift” that lasts a lifetime.
  • Easy to learn and teach.
