Happy children become happy adults. Let’s work together to make it happen.
Since setting up as a hypnotherapist in Reading I’ve used hypnotherapy and psychotherapy with children and adolescents on a regular basis. I used to love being with young people as a teacher and it seems as if I’m destined to continue working with them as a therapist too. I love it!
Children and adolescents are great subjects when working with hypnosis. They’re generally more open-minded and their imaginations are enormously powerful. Sometimes this is to their detriment but hypnotherapy can turn their imaginations into powerful allies.
I work with children and young people on a regular basis.
Now that my practice has expanded into Wallingford, Thame, London and Oxford I’ve been helping children to overcome problems which don’t just hold them back in a school but which hold them back from making the best of themselves in life as a whole.
Children deserve the best possible start in life and their families deserve to enjoy their time together. I love the fact that my work with a client benefits the whole family, helping them to enjoy time together more fully and thus benefiting society as a whole.
I’ve worked with hundreds of children and adolescents. They can learn to leave their grief, anger, depression, bad habits and fear behind them. These things are all a part of life but they can learn to become skilled in recognising, moderating and resolving them. Others have been their first. Your child could too.
I’m now training for a formal qualification
There are plenty of hypnotherapists who work with children. The problem, however, is that too many have no experience of them. They treat them like little adults and, besides using shorter words and childlike metaphors, have no idea of their developmental stages or capacity for change or comprehension. They’re just another fee in the bank.
There are plenty of counsellors who work with children. They may have the understanding but they all too often (in the words of my younger clients) ‘just talk’, ‘repeat what I said back to me’ or – as parents report – ‘let him play in the sand for months on end’.
I’m now training to become a child and adolescent psychotherapist. It’s a two year course and will lead me to UKCP registration for my work with children as well as with adults.
I am training to combine my existing knowledge of children, of hypnotherapy and of counselling with the best approaches in child psychotherapy available. I’m never going to click my fingers and expect your child to be transformed. Neither, however, do I believe that allowing a child to indulge in play without direction will be the most effective means of effecting change.
Children will work at their own pace and yet rapport together with the applied approaches of a well-informed hypno child-psychotherapist could render the process that bit more fluid and rapid.
If you’d like to learn more then please do get in touch. I’d be glad to talk with you.
Hypnotherapy could help your child too!
I’d very much like to help your child to overcome his or her problem. The whole family will benefit as a result. That would be a worthwhile investment of time and effort, wouldn’t it?!
Children and young people don;t just come to see me from Oxfordshire, Berkshire and Buckinghamshire. I have such clients from all over the country. Some of them are brought long distances to see me. Others meet me once or twice before continuing with their hypnotherapy via Vsee, a medium which is much like Skype.
Which conditions and problems can I work with?
I have just (8th March 2018) been accepted onto a training course will will render me a fully qualified child and adult psychotherapist but that hasn’t happened yet. I have two years of excellent training to undergo first.
So, until 2019, when I begin my training, I’m not the person for you if your child or adolescent has experienced a severe trauma.
However, due to my extensive experience of working with children I am considered to be suitably qualified to work with problems and difficulties of a less extreme nature.
Keep reading to find out more about the conditions I work with.
Which problems could I help with?
I’ve seen children for problems of adjustment following divorce, anger management issues, exam nerves, enuresis, panic attacks, anxiety, asperger’s syndrome, OCD, pathological demand avoidance, phobias, school refusal, insomnia, trichotilomania, conversion disorder, emetophobia, thumb-sucking, confidence and much, much more.
If I haven’t listed the problem which your child faces then please get in touch with me. I’m bound to have worked with something similar.
My ability to build rapport with children, combined with my abilities as a psychotherapist seems to be a winning combination. In fact, I do believe that my success rate (as far as this can be ascertained at all) seems to be greater with children than with adults.
Hypnotherapy for children and teens with Asperger’s Syndrome
I love working with these children, all children, adolescents and teenagers.
I have helped them to feel more at home with their own selves. I have helped them to leave anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts, angry meltdowns and much more behind them.
Hypnotherapy helped them to resolve their problems, for good, leaving them free to blossom into fully functioning and well-adjusted young adults. Your child could learn to do the same too!
So, if your child is over ten years of age and has a problem which isn’t seated in any great trauma (abuse, PTSD or similar – we’ll discuss this when you call) then I believe that I have the right combination of experience, training and understanding to help.
Get in touch and we’ll discuss how I can help your child to be free of that problem
If you’d like to enquire as to how I could help your son or daughter then please do get in touch.
You could call on 01865 600970 / 07786 123736 / 01183 280284 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. You could even use the contact form below. I’d be glad to talk with you.
I’m fully CRB checked and am more than happy to conduct sessions with a parent present – should the child and / or parent wish it.
Your son or daughter can be free of whatever it is which bothers them. They don’t need to simply put up with it. If you’d like to get in touch in order to explore how I can help you and your child then please:
