How Effective Is Hypnosis For Children?
There are so many childhood issues that hypnosis can help with. Best of all is that children are usually excellent at doing hypnosis naturally as they have strong imagination’s which means that they can experience the benefits, often without having to close their eyes or take twenty minutes to prepare like an adult might!
As a therapist, I can help your child use this mental agility and curiosity to help them create healthier thoughts and feelings. Hypnosis at Natural Mind is all about giving adults and children the tools to enjoy greater
personal freedom. Simple mind management and relaxation techniques can help your child enjoy greater control over the way they react to challenges and day to day stress.
Once children understand a bit more about the problem and realise they have some control over it,progress is often quick and effortless.
The best approach to hypnosis for children?
Generally speaking my approach with children and young adults is to use a solution-focused approach. This means that in therapy, I focus on the here and now and what the child wants to experience in the future.
A solution-focused approach is entirely safe as there is no obligatory ‘going back to the past’ or time spent uncovering past memories, Some solution-focused questions that I might ask your child (depending on their age of course) in the first session might be:
• In a perfect world what would you like me to help you do?
• If you had three wishes to change the way things are, what would you wish for?
• Suppose you had some time to talk to your favourite movie character/hero about how they could help you
solve the problem. What would be different in your life?
Hypnosis for children is all about helping your child understand how they themselves have the ability to make changes to their thoughts and feelings.This results in greater self-confidence and reduced stress and anxiety.
Some common issues that I can help with:
• Bedwetting (Enuresis)
• Low self-esteem
• Behavioural issues
• Bad habits such as nail biting and thumb sucking
• Sleep issues
• Anxiety and stress issues
