Children and teenagers in particular respond very well to hypnosis as long as they have agreed to have the sessions and appreciate that they need a bit of help. I have undertaken specialised
training to work with children and teenagers.
These are challenging times for parents mainly due to advances in technology such as computer games, i-pads, social media etc. These forms of technology can be very addictive.
School and exam pressure can also cause a lot of anxiety for many children and teenagers.
Children with anxiety can often suffer from insomnia or behavioural problems such as aggression. It is often the case that the child is perfectly well behaved for people outside the family or at school. It tends to be saved up for their nearest and dearest!
Many childrens issues can be helped by hypnotherapy; the following are just some of them:
Bed wetting (nocturnal enuresis)
Phobias, including fear of the dark, dentists, dogs etc
Addiction to computer games etc
Lack of confidence
Teenagers' behaviour has always been challenging but I believe never more so than these days.
We live in a very materialistic society where there is a lot of pressure on young people from the media to look a certain way and to feel unhappy if they don't.
Fortunately hypnotherapy is very successful at building confidence and self esteem to counteract these influences.
Issues affecting teenagers, some of which overlap with those of children, include:
Confidence and self esteem
Adiction to computer games, social media etc
I see either parent on their own without the child to begin with so that we can have a chat about the problem and discuss how we can help. This is free of charge.
This is followed by a consultation with the child on their own or with the parent depending on their age, costing £35. The number of subsequent sessions required varies depending on the problem
and will cost £60 per session.
