Paediatric Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy

Safe, effective and efficient.

In general, children respond to hypnotic suggestion better than adults because they are more in touch with their imaginations. In children, hypnosis is productive daydreaming, daydreaming with a purpose. Kids, go in and out of imaginative daydreaming many times each day and, in medical hypnosis we harness that daydreaming state of mind for a reason–to bring about desired change.

The medical literature contains dozens of reports demonstrating how beneficial hypnosis can be for children’s health problems.

In addition to its effectiveness, hypnosis typically works quickly. In emotionally complicated cases, hypnosis usually begins to relieve the presenting symptom quickly, but it might take extended psychotherapy to deal with the underlying psychological issues.

Of course, hypnosis is no panacea. It can’t cure cancer, or diabetes, or help blind children see. But when used for the many conditions it can treat, it is remarkably effective, even in cases where the children have severe psychological problems.

Hypnosis empowers children to believe they can master new skills. It’s a confidence booster.
