"By hearing enough examples of positive and effective thoughts, delivered by a person with whom the child enjoys a close and loving relationship, the child can eventually discard negative feelings and self-defeating statements and replace them with powerful and useful ones. In this sense SleepTalk shares many parallels with a well recognised psychological therapeutic approach known as self-instruction or self-verbalisation."

"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."

Gary Johnston. Psychotherapist and Clinical Hypnotherapist

"Initially I didn't think SleepTalk would have the potential to work on my 3 year old daughter; however after trying the technique I found my 3 year old to be calmer and more settled with her bedtime routine. The SleepTalk process was very easy to follow and manage. It has been a worthwhile contribution to my daughter's very healthy sleeping routine."

"I have been presenting the SleepTalk with my son who is 9 years of age for 6 months and I have a new boy! He's back to being my loving, caring and helpful son who has found his self-esteem and self-worth again. I am so proud of him and a huge believer in the SleepTalk miracle. It is amasing. Thankyou, Thankyou, Thankyou!!!"
