Hypnosis for Children -
Parents often seek out a qualified hypnotist for their child for help with challenges such as anxiety, pain, asthma, bedwetting and habit problems like hair pulling,
nail biting and thumb sucking. In addition, hypnosis is extremely effective when children dealing with headaches, self-esteem issues, eating disorders. Even challenges
such as aspergers have been addressed by using wonderfully powerful hypnotic techniques. Some parents have contacted me to ask about assistance with other challenges I never considered working on with hypnosis.
Children are often better candidates for hypnosis than adults. In hypnosis, children find it easier to use their imagination to create impressions that can bare often used
as part of the hypnotic process in order to resolve challenges. They are more in touch with their imagination and respond very well to hypnosis, and the hypnotic process is usually
most effective once they reach the age of 5, although it is possible to hypnotize children as young as 3.
The fact is that children under the age of 14 usually spend most of their time in alpha or theta brainwave states. These are the states that adults access when they enter into hypnosis,
but children are naturally in these states. In addition, we all enter into these states when sleeping, so they are natural states of mind.
One of the benefits of these states is that we can learn very quickly, and since children are naturally in this state, they learn so much very quickly.
With hypnosis and the power of the mind and these brainwave states, we are able to resolve challenges children experience as part of growing up in the world today.
Hypnosis for Children with Anxiety
Children who are anxious often have a faster heart rate and breathe more quickly. Using hypnosis, they can learn to lower their heart rate and breathe more slowly,
and help them understand that they can take themselves away from whatever it is that is making them anxious.
Bedwetting and Hypnosis
While there is prescription medication for children who have a bedwetting problem, many physicians are turning to hypnosis for bedwetting, which has very positive results. The primary reason that it is so effective is that the children play an active role in their treatment instead of just taking a pill.
Asthma and Hypnosis
Children with asthma experience their throat constricting, which causes them to begin to breathe more heavily and feel anxious. By teaching the child how to hypnotize themselves, the learn how to calm down and bring them to better place.
How effective is hypnosis in children?
With most children, hypnotism can be very successful. While some adults may have a harder time letting go, children are naturals when it comes to hypnosis and the results can often be very positive. In addition, unlike drugs, with hypnosis the risk of harm negligible.
I enjoy working with children and hypnosis, and have a lot of experience working with them. In addition to many years of work with hypnosis for children, I spent 12 years teaching piano and keyboard classes and while I did teach some adults, most of my students were children.
