SleepTalk Sessions Canberra

The Canberra SleepTalk™ Sessions are our answer to the needs of many parents living in Australia Capital Territory. Even though a part of this article will focus on the service we offer, it’s also a free resource that you can use to improve your understanding of how the subconscious mind works and also understand how to protect your child from confidence-damaging comments and traumatic experiences.

To understand what SleepTalk™ is, a program dedicated to the well-being of children, you must first understand how the human mind works.

How we get to believe what we believe

Everything around us, from the smell of fresh coffee to the latest show you’re watching on Netflix is information. Our brain is constantly processing the information, through something called ‘conscious and subconscious acceptance‘. Adults use analytical logic, critical, and conscious thinking to assess what to accept and internalise. We don’t take everything we hear as truth and we don’t turn all of those words into our beliefs.

The problem is that kids develop this type of reasoning as they grow older. Something that an adult would quickly dismiss, a child will accept and internalise. Once accepted into the subconscious mind and transformed into a memory, the information becomes a belief. It doesn’t even matter if it’s true or not.

As a result kids can interpret the world and act based on flawed, negative beliefs that they hold to be true.

“All human responses are based upon accepted beliefs held in the deep subconscious mind. These beliefs are constantly referred to as we react to every situation with which the conscious mind is presented.” – Joane Goulding

“How could you be so stupid?”

Overworked and overwhelmed parents are under a lot of stress, and quite often say things they don’t actually believe or mean to say during an outburst. While adults recognise this as a moment of weakness, kids will hear these often ‘loaded’ words and retain them in their subconscious mind, associated emotions and all.

Children might not remember the words until years later in life, but a negative remark and the pain it caused can be embedded in their belief system and enacted by their subconscious mind a later time. This could have the potential to cause harm to a child’s self-esteem and distance them from authority figures as the grow.

The same effect can be caused by older siblings not wanting to play with a younger child; from watching TV shows or commercials; kids are receiving these suggestions all the time and in the long run can impact their development and follow them throughout their adult lives.

The power of positive suggestions

The SleepTalk™ process helps kids accept positive suggestions directly into the subconscious mind. Once the positive suggestions are made this way, they start replacing previously accepted negative ones. Through this process, the subconscious mind makes changes to its held beliefs, accepting new, positive suggestions which once the child wakes up become their new reality.

Just like a computer antivirus stops malicious software to be installed on your computer, the positive suggestions delivered through the SleepTalk™ process protects the child against negative ones.

Getting to know the Goulding SleepTalk™ for Children Process

This process helps parents in supporting their kids to develop a harmonious belief structure and improve their self-confidence. During the SleepTalk™ sessions, a parent will learn how to make the suggestions from a certified hypnotherapist in a way that they’ll be effective.

The suggestions need to be delivered by parents while the child is asleep, accessing the subconscious mind at brain-wave levels ranging from the deep Alpha to the light Theta (approximately 8-6 electromagnetic cycles per second). Parents should do it without waking the children, and before the child reaches the deepest level of the sleeping cycle during the time when very slow Delta brain waves manifest.

Should you learn this process?

It’s a great investment in your child’s well-being. The entire daily process takes only 2 minutes, but the results will last a lifetime. After a hypnotherapist teaches you how to do it, you’ll be able to help your child develop their self-esteem and solve other issues like nail biting or bedwetting. The process is simple and can be used for children of ages and cognitive capabilities. It can help children recover from anxiety, stress, and even trauma. Reactions like stomach aches, nail biting, bedwetting, nightmares and night terrors, crying, separation anxiety, poor attention can be the result of negative suggestions embedded in the child’s subconscious mind.

SleepTalk™ is safe and effective, and is recognised by various hypnosis associations.

Throughout the years, the Goulding SleepTalk™ for Children Process has been recognised by various institutions and organisations from around the world. Those organisations relevant to our part of the world are:

  • The Hypnosis Association of Queensland
  • The Professional Hypnotherapists of Western Australia Organisation

  • The Australian Hypnotherapy Association
  • The Australian Counselling Association

an unhealthy relationship with food

10 Signs of An Unhealthy Relationship with Food

An unhealthy relationship with food can make you feel powerless, and it can take a toll on your well-being, impacting the way you look and feel, your confidence, and your relationship with others. Its impact on your health can be truly damaging, as a diet poor in quality nutrients, but high in sugar, salt, and fat can lead to serious chronic conditions.

Having an unhealthy relationship with food? Here are the signs:

#1 You deny yourself the foods you crave.

You tell yourself that you have a really good reason to not offer your body what it craves, or you just reached the conclusion that it would be too much of a hassle prepare the foods you’d like, so you just eat something else that doesn’t require as much effort.

#2 You punish yourself for breaking your food rules.

You might have rules for how many calories you’re allowed to eat, or what foods you can have. When you break your too strict rules you feel bad and you’re also not very kind to yourself.

#3 You have no self-control over food.

Another sign of an unhealthy relationship with food is the lack of self-control over all foods or just some foods. For example, you cannot have just one marshmallow or just two fries; once you taste something you like, you justify to yourself that you should have more.

#4 You cut out entire food groups.

You go on drastic diets, like cutting out all carbs, or all fats; or you just convince yourself that you don’t have to eat the foods you don’t like (like veggies) and they’re never to be seen again on your plate.

#5 Your emotions control your eating habits.

You sometimes feel like you need some sugary foods because you are low on energy, or need a little lift me up. You overeat when you feel down or unengaged.

#6 You think about food all the time.

You think about what you can and can’t eat, what you should buy on your next trip to the grocery store, what to order for lunch, etc.

#7 You eat the same foods all the time.

You might not want to try new foods or you just don’t want to allow yourself any room to cheat on a very strict diet. Either way, this is another sign of an unhealthy relationship with food that you need to be aware of, so you could seek a solution.

#8 You prefer to eat alone.

You sometimes feel uneasy eating with other people because you feel they might judge what’s on your plate, how much or how little, how healthy or unhealthy you eat. That’s why you feel more comfortable just eating alone.

#9 You are controlled by food rules.

You think about what and what not to eat all the time – when you go shopping, when you think about going shopping, when you look in the fridge, when you go out for dinner. You know hundreds of rules about the right way to combine and prepare foods, most of them being conflicting ideas, and you struggle to make sense of it all.

#10 You suffer from food-related guilt.

As soon as you swallow that last piece of candy or that last hamburger bite, you already feel guilty about what you ate.

Dealing with unhealthy eating on your own is difficult. That is why you need specialised help. Taking an approach backed by science is definitely a more efficient way of dealing with such a problem.

panic attack signs

Panic Attack Help: 8 Signs You’re Having One and What to Do

You must have heard of someone who had a panic attack. At that point, like most people, you might have thought that stress and anxiety are part of life, but you probably didn’t think of a panic attack as something that would happen to you.

Did you know that to a certain degree, anxiousness is actually healthy because it enables the body to react to certain stimuli and causes us to take action and perform better?

As long as the feeling is relative to the situation or problem at hand, it is perfectly normal. However, when anxiety gets severe, chronic and irrational, you might already have an anxiety disorder and experience episodes of panic attacks.

How to tell if you’re having a panic attack

Its common symptoms are:

The fear of going crazy

Sometimes when a person is under such tremendous pressure they may feel as if they are going crazy. This is even more evident during the time of a panic attack.

If this has ever happened to you I want to assure you that there is very little possibility that you are really going crazy. It is far more likely that it is only a symptom that you are experiencing.

Dry mouth

This is another common symptom and is a natural occurrence during a panic attack. To counter the dry mouth just sip on water or try a piece of hard candy to stimulate the production of saliva.

Shaking and shivering

These are two necessary functions that your body uses to keep your temperature normal. When body temperature drops from normal, the muscles spasmodically contract, creating friction between muscles and body tissues, thus increasing the body temperature. During an anxiety attack, shaking and shivering is normal.

Heart palpitations

These are also common during a panic attack. You may feel like your heart is skipping beats. This is caused by the release of adrenaline into the bloodstream. This is perfectly normal and can’t cause damage to your physical well being. However, it can cause discomfort and lead to more severe symptoms if you don’t learn how to control your attacks.

Body pain

Feeling pain in your neck, shoulders, jaw, mouth and stomach, as well as having a headache is also common. When the body is under stress, parts of the body usually get tense, which results in pain. Do your best to try and relax if this occurs.

Chest pain

This is a normal body reaction to a panic attack because of muscle tension. Sometimes, chest pain is misinterpreted as a heart attack, but it is important to differentiate one from the other as the latter can be deadly.

Shortness of breath

This is the most distressing symptom of an anxiety attack. It feels like your chest can’t expand to take in the necessary air that your body needs. If you experience this, there are three important points that you should remind yourself of and that is that you will not suffocate, stop breathing or pass out. This is a temporary symptom of your anxiety attack.

Feeling detached

This symptom of a panic attack alters the way you experience yourself and the way you see reality. It makes you feel like everything around you is a dream, foggy or unreal.

While recognising the signs and symptoms of anxiety doesn’t require you to understand the workings of the human body, what it does require is awareness of each of the symptoms and the effects that they may have when they are ignored.

Please be aware that different people manifest different symptoms and behaviours when experiencing a panic attack. The intensity of the symptoms differs as well and may appear different with every attack.

If you experience effects that last well after the attack has passed it is important to consult a health professional so that you can be sure that there aren’t any other underlying conditions that you should be aware of.

Understanding anxiety is the first step towards controlling the effect 
that it has on your life, so do your best to learn everything you can about how it can affect you.
