Hypnotherapy can be a very effective treatment for child anxiety and stress.
Children have wonderfully creative imaginations and usually find it easy to visualise; this makes them ideal candidates for hypnotherapy.
Hypnotherapy can help to change the child’s pattern of negative thoughts and feelings associated with returning to school and can also be useful to establish the real root cause of the problem.
Children often find it difficult to express how they are really feeling, and why they feel the way they do. Our solution focused approach is a great way to help them imagine their preferred future and come up with solutions in a calm and relaxed way.
Children, by virtue of their open creative minds and vivid imaginations, usually find it very easy to go into a hypnotic trance. There is therefore an increased probability that hypnotherapy will succeed in opening the subconscious to powerful thought-changing suggestions.
The rerelaxing nature of hypnotherapy is also good for the child, in that an overactive imagination can often be the creator of negative thoughts and feelings (especially in relation to school). Indeed, many schools now have introduced meditation as a way to relax children, aid concentration and focus and to release the stresses associated with being young.
One of the other major positives about hypnotherapy as an intervention for children is that, compared to many other types of treatment, it can be both enjoyable and fun so the child is much more likely to take part in a positive way and even ‘look forward’ to sessions making success much more likely.
