Hypnotherapy For Children

Most children make wonderful hypnotic subjects, their minds are like sponges soaking up new information. The youngest child I have hypnotised has been aged five, the child needs to want to change. Children have a wonderful time in the state of hypnosis as they are able to use their imaginations, making it a fun time. During everyday activities children enter readily in and out of altered states of consciousness. Fantasy, imagery and intensely focused attention are common experiences for children which is utilised in hypnotherapy.

Your child will receive a personally recorded hypnotic MP3 of their therapy, they can use this at home to support and reinforce their treatment. If your child is very young then a sleep MP3 recording can be used in the evenings as your child is drifting off to sleep, helping to reinforce the changes.

Below is a list of issues that I have dealt for children:
