Hypnotherapy with Kids and Teens – Niki Martin RCH

HYPNOTHERAPY WITH YOUNG CHILDREN

During hypnotherapy sessions with young children (mostly 8 years old and younger), I weave suggestive language together with engaging movement games, drawing exercises, imaginative play, and stories that allow and encourage new and healthy ways of thinking and feeling. Sessions are generally 30 to 45 minutes long, based on the individual child.

HYPNOTHERAPY WITH ADOLESCENTS AND TEENS

Hypnotherapy sessions with adolescents and teens are very similar to sessions with adults. While each child is unique in their development, often by the age of 10 or 11 children are entirely capable and excited to engage in formal hypnotherapy. After all, it’s pretty cool!

HOW WILL BRINGING MY CHILD TO HYPNOTHERAPY IMPACT ME AS A PARENT?

Hypnotherapy is highly effective for developing self-awareness and self-confidence. While that is precisely what most parents want for their children, it takes time for the whole family to adapt and be comfortable with changes - even positive ones - in their child. As a parent, you may be asked to participate in a hypnotherapy session with your child, on your own, or to have regular face-to-face conversations with the therapist.
