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
- Nail biting
- 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 offer a FREE Initial Consultation and will give you a free relaxation trance (digital or CD) to help your child begin to relax and sleep better immediately.
