HYPNOSIS FOR CHILDREN

Why Hypnosis?

Children are naturals with hypnosis, as they frequently flow in an out of imaginary play and day dreaming - both cornerstones to understanding how the mind can easily slip in and out of the subconscious and conscious states of mind. That is why hypnosis for children can be so effective in combatting anxiety, social and academic stress, and in building confidence. 


How Hypnosis for Children Can Help:

· Learning and Academic Difficulties

· Bed-Wetting

· Self Esteem

· Fear of the Dark

· Dealing with a Traumatic Event

· Frequent Nightmares

· Social Anxiety

· Thumb Sucking


Most children will see a dramatic improvement over presenting issue immediately, however, it is recommended that a minimum of three sessions are completed to ensure the maximum success. 


It's important to properly prepare your child for their hypnotherapy session so they don't have any fears or misconceptions: they will not lose control, reveal secrets or get "brain washed" during their sessions. They are in total control the entire time, and I take direction from them about what they would like to work on during their session. 


No matter what your child is seeking help for, it is imperative that the parent or guardian can commit to hypnotic support at home to maximize the success of hypnosis for children. Sessions for children under the age of 12 require nightly parental hypnotic follow-up (Roughly 10 minutes each night.) Children over the age of 12 (or as determined by the Hypnotist) will perform their own nightly hypnotic follow-up exercises.
