Childhood should be a time of carefree happiness, where the most we have to worry about is being told to tidy our toys away. Yet especially for sensitive children and those who are ahead for their age, it’s easier than you might think to pick up on the problems of those around them, and if this is not monitored, the child could feel as if they’re carrying the world’s burdens on their shoulders.
• Prolonged and uncharacteristic withdrawal from those around them
• Crying more often but not knowing what’s wrong
• Disinterest in activities that used to bring them joy
• Disruptive behaviour in school and/or at home
• Nightmares and bed wetting
Similar behavioural patterns might arise if:
• Parents split up or divorce
• A new sibling is born
• One of their parents finds a new romantic partner
• Death of a grandparent
If your child is distressed or out of sorts, it can feel like a failure. You drive yourself mad with questions such as ‘is it my fault?’ why can’t I help them? And ‘will they ever be their happy, smiling self again? But what if I told you the answer could be as simple as playing an imagination game? Hypnotherapy puts children in a totally serene state in which they can explore their dreams and get rid of their fears in the comfortable space, with their parent right beside them, helping them deal with issues such as:
• Anxiety (separation or general)
• Confidence Building
• Childhood obesity
A hypnotherapist can never replace a doctor. If you think your child’s behaviour maybe linked to a medical condition, always consult a medical expert before anyone else, as many treatments are completely compatible with hypnotherapy, and a combination of two approaches could be better than just one.
It is well documented that unresolved anxieties in childhood can potentially grow into fears and obstacles in their adult life, hypnotherapy encourages children to develop excellent coping mechanisms while boosting their confidence and self-control.
Hypnosis for Children and NLP are amazing tools that help children to improve their lives in a fun way overcoming problems by engaging their imagination.
