Many people are now beginning to realise the potential power of hypnotherapy in improving one’s wellbeing and development.
Contrary to popular belief, hypnosis or hypnotherapy is not masking the patient to the deep abyss of unconsciousness, but it actually awakens the mind and senses into a heightened mindfulness and concentration to achieve a successful correction of a habit, change of behavior, or healing of a certain emotional trauma.
Hypnotherapy is a valuable aid to psychotherapy and can be used for suggestion therapy or analysis.
Many decades ago, child hypnotherapy was rarely being practiced on children with many in the field maintaining the notion that they simply couldn’t be hypnotised. Not until the 1970’s when observations by experts suggested that children, in fact, could be more easily hypnotised than adults. It is perhaps because children are more suggestible and inclined to have more active, vivid imaginations allowing the hypnotherapy professional to unlock the unconsciousness much easier.
Another reason is the fact the children are less pre-conditioned than adults, without pre-conceived concepts and resistance that adults usually have. Child hypnotherapy is a great tool in correcting children’s habits and easing the trauma of pain mentally and physically.
More and more parents are imploring the aid of hypnotherapy for their kids whether it be for rehabilitation or preventive purposes.
Though there is a myriad of options that traditional clinical procedures can provide, hypnotherapy emphasises more on the cognitive and behavioural approach valuable to formation and growth.
It is safe and doesn’t require critical clinical procedures, what guarantees the full participation of children in that it encourages them to engage on visualisation activities, it enables them to play with their imagination.
The “recreational” nature of the activities also add a very friendly and non-intimidating appeal for children, presented in a way that it is playful and fun.
Here are some of the things that hypnotherapy can help your child with:
- Focus and attention
- Bed wetting
- Tantrums and emotional outbursts
- Stress and anxiety
- Sports performance
- Mannerisms such as nail-biting and thumb sucking
Hypnotherapy is also a useful approach in dealing with physical conditions such as muscle tensions, irritability, fatigue and insomnia.
Children’s behaviour can also be corrected which will empower them to be more confident within themselves and they will be better able to develop their focus and concentration.
