Hypnosis for Children and Teens
As an International Adoption Specialist for 17 years, I have seen firsthand the benefits of hypnosis for children. Through my innovative and unique story telling and distraction hypnosis method, I help children overcome issues such as bedwetting, fear of starting school, not wanting to go to bed, self-esteem, improved grades and desire to learn, finiky eating and stress. When a more serious concern presents itself, such as false memories, behavioral issues, etc. I work closely with the parents, social worker and/or medical professional to help a child find relief.
Hypnosis can help children and adolesents with improved confidence, sports performance, auditions, exams, test taking and study skills.
How will hypnosis help my child?
Hypnosis has been successfully used to treat acute and recurrent pain, asthma, bed-wetting, stool withholding, habit problems, nervous tics, anxiety, fears and other problems. Presently, self-hypnosis is among the most effective therapies for childhood migraine headaches. The value of hypnosis, however, goes beyond its ability to help with these ailments. A child's personal success in self-hypnosis boosts their confidence and mastery. Young people learn to use this technique to cope with new challenges and stresses they may experience. Self-hypnosis grows easier with practice. It is like learning to play a musical instrument in time the musician develops skill, creativity and the ability to play an increasingly variety of music.

“With hypnosis we saw less crying, less distress during the preparation for the procedure and the technicians said the procedure was much easier to perform,” said David Spiegel, MD, the Jack, Lulu and Samuel Willson Professor in Medicine and associate chair of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, as well as the director of the Stanford Center for Integrative Medicine and the Psychosocial Treatment Laboratory at Stanford and an attending psychiatrist at the children’s hospital.

Hypnosis is a powerful yet simple way in which to develop and nurture your child’s self-esteem and sense of self-worth. It can help your child tap into a massive reservoir of personal power. Hypnosis is a technique that harnesses one’s natural ability to enter an altered state of consciousness.
