One common question about hypnosis I get is whether hypnosis works for children. Most people are so tentative when it comes to getting hypnotized themselves that they become extra concerned when they consider it as an option for their kids.
I’m here to tell you that there’s absolutely nothing to worry about, and that hypnosis is actually especially effective for children.
Hypnosis utilizes common traits seen in kids such as imagination and suspension of disbelief. In my 35 years experience, during which I have often treated children, I would notice that they don’t enter the sessions with a sense of resistance that I see in greater percentages from adults.
The common issues I treat in children are depression, test-taking, attention/focus disorders, antisocial or distracting behavior, and weight-loss. Under almost every circumstance I grant the parental requests to sit in on the session, and while I do consult with the parent at the end of the session, it is not mandatory that the parent be there for the entirety of the session and hypnosis induction.
