Hypnotherapy for Children


Working with young people is one of the most rewarding aspects of my work. They are very open minded and ideally suited to using their imagination in order to see a brighter future for themselves. It is much easier for a child to use their imagination without the barriers that we learn as we become older. As adults it can take time before we are able to visualise, and the door to our unconscious mind can take a lot longer to open. Working with children they find it very easy to create stories and adventures, imagining games and ideas. These all help them to have rapid results. It is a lot easier to change the perception of a negative memory for a child than it can be for an adult who has lived with it for a great many years. Child anxiety therapy can be very effective in helping your child.

Life is increasingly stressful for children as it is for adults. Growing up can be a difficult time. Coping with changes in their bodies and the way that they think about relationships can cause anxiety and stress. They can suffer problems with school, sometimes in their relationships with others and sometimes with all that is heaped on them in terms of gaining results. Hypnosis and hypnotherapy for children is an excellent solution to the problem.

Bad habits are as common in children as they can be with adults. Children may suffer from nervous tics, bed wetting, nail-biting and blushing. They can have many fears such as attending school, being alone or in the dark. Exam stress is on the rise and the good news is that teaching children to be relaxed and confident in their exams can make a huge difference to their self esteem and their exam results. It is not uncommon for children to suffer panic attacks as a result of the stress they are under. The good news is that you can learn to let these go and move on.

I can help with: Completing homework with confidence, classroom fears and worries about schooling, nail biting, blushing, bed wetting, thumb sucking, fear of the dark, nightmares, dealing with changing  relationships such as a parental divorce, anger management problems, overcoming shyness and building self confidence, as well as many other issues.

As well as my experience in working with children as a Clinical Hypnotherapist I have also had many years of working with children as an actor and teacher. I have taught hundreds of workshops in schools including sessions with children with special needs. As an actor I appeared in the Kids TV series Brum, and many parents remember watching me as the policeman in the show, as well as some of my younger clients! This means that as well as relating to your child in a way that many other therapists cannot we will also be able to have fun in the sessions. I can wash away the fears about what will happen and we can make those changes with the minimum of worry. Not all Hypnotherapists are comfortable working with children or have experience so picking the right person for your child is key.

All my sessions are conducted in accordance with the National Council of Hypnotherapy guidelines. It is important that our sessions are very informal and are designed to help your children relax whilst their problems are addressed.

When we work together I will also record a relaxation session which you can then take away on CD or MP3 to help reinforce the work we have done. Many parents report that when they listen to this with their child they end up feeling very relaxed themselves!

If you would like to have an informal no obligation chat with me about your child please feel free to call me on 07980 233160 or email [email protected]


As well as working with your child directly there is another option: In many cases I work directly with the parent or carer to help talk them through ideas and exercises that they can do with their child. Often as a parent you can benefit from learning the techniques to let go and relax yourself and then teaching these to your child can help you to bond as well as helping their own development. Feel free to contact me and ask any questions that you have about this approach.


When working with children using Cognitive Hypnotherapy, NLP and CBH techniques can often be an excellent way forward for them to make those positive changes.
