Childrens Issues | Hypnotherapy Brighton, Hove & Lewes

Hypnotherapy may help with some of the following complaints:

  • bed wetting
  • nail biting
  • bullying
  • anxiety
  • sleep problems
  • thumb sucking
  • issues in social circle
  • adjusting to changes
  • phobias (intense fears of animals, dentist, insects, cars, lifts etc)

Children are often navigating situations for the very first time and they are trying to make sense of it all. They are having to constantly adapt to the changes in their environment with little control in situations they find themselves in.
Some examples of these are:

  • bullying
  • bereavement
  • parents splitting up
  • moving house
  • changing school
  • best friend emigrating
  • going to the dentist
  • birth of a sibling

With a limited emotional vocabulary, making sense of all this, expressing to another and finding a solution is a trciky business.

Sometimes these fears present themselves in changes of your childs behaviour, or habits such as nail biting, thumb sucking or bed-wetting.

Perhaps they have had a persistant fear over a long time period or more recently developed a fear of the dark, or of sleep. Other common fears are doctors, dentists, needles, animals & insects.

Yet despite their vulnerability, children having an amazing resilience in life and and incredible capacity to learn new things.

Using a combination of stories, art, visualization, imaginative games and role-playing, children often gain quick and effective results.

You want to make the right decisions about your childs care and so its important they are in good hands.

I worked a number of years for various charitable and statutory services supporting vulnerable children and young people aged between 10-19. Throughout this time, and my time as a therapist, I have come into contact and supported people through a vast array of difficulties and situations.

I am a father myself, with a son aged 10 and two step-daughters aged 20 & 23. I know from my experience that it can also be tough as a parent too.

I would be happy to offer you a free consultation to see how I might be able to help or exploring other resources that may be of use.
