Every child is going to experience emotion and upset during their childhood years, but when the problem is around for a while or gets in the way of their everyday life, then it’s at that point that something often needs to be done.
Children are very open minded and are well suited to Hypnotherapy, by using there imagination, to see things in different way to change behaviours. Children find it easy to create adventures and stories, this can help change the negative thoughts in to positive ones.

In general hypnosis is suitable for children from the age 7, this does depend on each individual child’s development. For hypnosis to be effective a child needs to have a sense of self, to be able to listen and to follow instructions.
Parent participation is very important. A child will know when a parent has anxiety which can make the change for their children a bit more difficult.
