How Hypnosis Helps Children

Hypnosis is a wonderful, fun, therapeutic, tool that can help many children!

Children are easily, and often, deeply absorbed in their wonderful fantasy and imagination.  Child Hypnosis is simply using that naturally occurring trance-like state.

Hypnosis is used as a natural bridge between their imagination and their real life stressors.  While relaxing into hypnosis, the children are able to focus on the issues that are contributing to their anxiety, depression, physical symptoms, and sleep issues.  

Hypnosis is also safe.  Despite the relaxed state your child may enter, their unconscious will remain highly alert and attentive.  This means that they will always remain in control during the entire session. 

During their hypnosis, the children can mentally rehearse for future events, actually experience physiologically change, have cognitively shifts, and learn to emotionally self regulate.  

Hypnosis sessions are also an opportunity to use play, humor, and creativity.  This can lead to a important sense of mastery.  By helping them to prepare for future stressors, it is empowering, and can also really boost their confidence.
