Hypnotherapy for Children

Children and young people are generally very open and receptive to hypnotherapy - they are accustomed to using their imaginations and their powers of creativity vividly

Working with Children

The chil's age will have a bearing upon their understanding of the concepts, the language used and types of metaphors (the 'stories' we tell). Children also vary enormously in their ability to relax and focus for any length of time and may respond better to techniques such as NLP which are 'out of hypnosis'. Their responsiveness may also vary from session to session, so our expert practitioner will need to be able to vary the approach accordingly. The earliest age suitable for hypnotherapy is probably about five and anything up to fifteen. Normal safeguarding requirements apply, with a parent or guardian present during therapy.
