Hypnotherapy for Children and Teenagers
As well as treating adults I offer Hypnotherapy to children (aged 5+) and teenagers. Children under the age of 18 years require the presence of a parent or appointed guardian throughout the session. I hold a Basic Disclosure Certificate (formerly CRB) and am fully insured.
Children tend to respond really well to hypnosis as they have wonderful imaginations as part of their natural development. The therapeutic approach is adapted to the age and capabilities of the child, taking into account language skills and, with very young children, their capacity to relax and be relatively still for a period of time.
A wide range of childhood problems can be treated with hypnosis, such as: anxiety, academic performance, fears and phobias, enuresis (bed-wetting), soiling, exam and test nerves, sleep problems, nail-biting , thumb- sucking and other unwanted habits.
Hypnosis is a totally natural state of mind, likened to being in a daydream whilst still being completely in control of what is happening. The majority of children find hypnosis an enjoyable and relaxing process and gain valuable benefits and enduring life skills.
