Children and Hypnosis

I have had the pleasure of helping my own children with the use of hypnosis. Children can have incredible results with hypnosis!

It is well established that children can benefit from hypnosis as much as adults. Children are highly susceptible to hypnosis due to their rich imagination, flexible and unbiased attitude towards visualization exercises. Changes usually occur faster in children and they are long lasting, or permanent.

The parents' support throughout the process is vital to achieving the desired results. Together, we work towards the child's benefit, not the parents'. Children usually get the most benefit from multiple sessions (average four or more). The earliest age a child can experience therapeutic hypnosis is as young as three years old.

Hypnosis can help children with many challenges, including:
  • Fear of dogs (fear of anything)
  • Bed wetting
  • Anxiety
  • Sleep Issues (Insomnia)
  • Study habits
  • Public speaking
  • Stuttering
  • Eating habits
  • Self-esteem issues
  • Low self-confidence
  • Bullying or being bullied
  • Siblings tensions
  • Nail biting

I welcome parents in the room during the initial interview. I then have the parent leave the room for the hypnosis session. This gives the child a sense of privacy where he/she will be able to relax more deeply. The children appreciate it when the parents give the children the space and privacy to express their own views and opinions one-on-one.
