Is Hypnosis Effective For Children

I get asked very often whether I treat children and whether hypnosis is effective in helping children. Well, coaching is about how to live your life more effectively, how to go from good, better and best. And as long as the child has the ability to reason, then the answer is yes.

Now there are a few things that we should remember. One is the child is of young age, the parent is always in the room. In fact the parent is able to be in the room as long as the child is under eighteen if it’s in the best interest of the client and the parent.

Two, that in the process of doing hypnosis it is simply a relaxation and a reinforcement of what is the proper way of thinking and believing. Children are highly influenced by those in authority, and very often the idea is that they have in their head that are torturing them are quickly replaced when a more powerful authority puts a positive idea when they’re open to suggestion.

Yes, children are already hypnotized by bad information coming from well meaning people. I do treat children. Thank you.

Does Hypnosis Work For Children?

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.

Can Hypnosis Cure Night Terrors?

One of the most common types of sleep disorders are night terrors. A night terror is a sleep disruption that bears a faint resemblance to a nightmare, but differs in intensity and inconsolability.

Mostly affecting kids, a night terror is not technically a dream, but more like a sudden reaction of fear that happens during the transition from one sleep phase to another. A night terror usually involves a child sitting suddenly upright and screaming. The breathing and heartbeat increase and so is the person’s sense of being scared.
