Hypnotherapy for Children

Growing up can be a difficult time for children and young people as life is getting increasingly more stressful. We can see this in the ever-increasing rise in child anxiety. Hypnotherapy and hypnosis for children is a treatment that can help to reduce these stresses for the young person in your life.

Signs of stress and anxiety in children

The types of behaviours you may notice your child exhibit if they are feeling stressed include:

  • Nervous ticks
  • Bed-wetting
  • Nail biting
  • Blushing
  • Fears about attending school, being alone or the dark

All of these are very common in children as they can be with adults.

Exam stress is also on the rise.

The good news is that hypnosis teaches children to be relaxed and confident, which can greatly help with all of the behaviours you may have noticed. And when it comes to their exams this can make a huge difference to their results.

Hypnosis for children

I can work with children from the age of 6.

Children are very open-minded and it is much easier for them to use their imagination to focus on positive goals.

My hypnosis sessions with kids are very relaxing and fun. They will learn about how the brain works and this knowledge will enable them to deal with anxiety, anger and stress in a positive way and to find strategies on how to react differently.

Each session is tailored to suit the individual child or young person’s age and needs. Hypnosis sessions with younger children will be shorter (around 30-40 minutes), which will be reflected in a reduced fee.

For younger children, the parents are usually in the room during the sessions. For older children, we like to encourage the child to voice his/her preference.

“I brought my 7 year old to see Veronique because he was struggling with some anxiety. He really listened as she explained things and she really listened to him. As well as the sessions, we had a few things to try at home and as the weeks passed, the changes were evident. He became calm and happy again, the way he dealt with problems changed and we really feel that we got our little boy back. We still work daily on maintaining this as I expect we always will. It’s lovely to know that Veronique is nearby should we need a little ‘top-up’. I would highly recommend this style of treatment and I would highly recommend Veronique. .”

Please note: Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is very effective, however, results may vary and success is not guaranteed. The treatment requires your willingness and commitment to bring about the changes.
