Hypnotherapy for Children
Is Hypnotherapy suitable and beneficial for children?
Young children often live in the magical world of imagination. You will more often see your child playing the roles of teachers, doctors, firemen, train drivers, and the list is endless. This world of their imagination can be positively used by a competent Psychological Hypnotherapist and can work in their favour.
After talking in detail to the child, I will be able to use the child’s own language and areas of interest to communicate and connect with their world.
It is vital that your child feels comfortable with the therapist ensuring that they are willing to fully take part in the process.
Should I ask my child if they want to take part in hypnotherapy?
You need to make sure that your child wants to take part in the Hypnotherapy and it should not be against their will. You should give your child the choice, with younger children you might say ‘I know a man who has helped lots of children who have the same problem he thinks he can help you too. What do you think?’
You, of course, are a vital part of your child’s treatment , and I will encourage you to be fully involved.
What sorts of children’s issues do I treat with hypnotherapy?
Some of the problems children present with are very similar to those presented by adults. However, some are much more unique to their age group. These include separation anxiety, being bullied, learning problems and exam fears, behaviour difficulties, motor and vocal tics, night time fears and sleep problems, pulling hair out, thumb sucking, nail biting etc. They may also suffer from nocturnal enuresis (bed wetting) and encopresis (soiling).
