Hypnotherapy for kids

Hypnotherapy works really well for kids and can help them to deal with many issues. It is highly effective and completely safe. Children respond very well to hypnosis as they are naturally very imaginative and use their subconscious mind far more than adults do.

How can hypnotherapy help

Hypnotherapy can help with a wide range of issues including exam nerves, bed wetting, sleep problems, fears, eating issues and low self-esteem. It is a fast and effective treatment.

A Relaxing Time

A session of hypnosis is a relaxing and quiet time for a child. They will have the opportunity to use their imagination to resolve their problems. Parents can be present during the sessions and participant in the treatment. Treatment can involve having adventures, using stories or perhaps meeting a superhero who can help them. Children have wonderful imaginations and even older children will be open to using this resource.

Issues Children Face

Children have a lot to deal with; change, loss, bullying, criticism, low self-esteem and their own bodies moving through periods of rapid growth and development. They have may tasks to do such as making friends, handling bullies, dealing with school work and trying to  “belong”. Sometimes comparing themselves with others can lead to low self esteem and feelings of inadequacy.

How do we know there is a problem?

Just like adults, children react to stress in many different ways. They may start to struggle at school, become forgetful, angry and irritable or even have physical symptoms such as headaches and stomach cramps. Some children bite their nails, wet the bed or develop a stammer. Others start to dislike school, fall out with friends of teachers or become very withdrawn and shy. Sometime fears may surface – fear of the dark, fear of going to sleep and many other phobias. As a parent it can be very difficult to find a way of helping.

How does Hypnotherapy work for children?

Most children have a rich an vivid imagination. In hypnotherapy this wonderful resource can be used to  access the subconscious mind of the child. Children also have a great thirst for knowledge and enjoy learning something new in a way that they can understand. This openness makes them very good candidates for hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy can help to boost confidence and allow children to resolve their issues.
