Childrens Therapy Bath
Counselling therapy for children
Tim Langhorn has worked counselling children and young people, in many environments , over many years with regard a whole host of issues. Tim works in a person centred counselling therapeutic way and thereby allowing children to explore those issues without being judged. They soon learn that they will be taken seriously and I will have their best interests at heart, whatever they bring and whatever they say. Tim’s expertise counselling children and young people has taught him to be completely open and honest and treat each individual with total respect. By doing so, Tim realised quite soon into his career, that children know instinctively if someone is leading them on or giving them lip service. It is Tim’s sincerity and calm approach which has enabled him to gain the trust of the children he meets for counselling and help build the rapport needed for a successful working partnership.
Hypnotherapy with children
Counselling children has been common place for a long time. However, people do ask whether hypnotherapy be used with children? Well the answer to whether or not hypnotherapy can be used to help children with habits, behaviours or psychological issues or symptoms, is yes it can! And very successfully.
Tim induces a light state of hypnosis with the children he works with, which is quite natural and very safe. This means children experiencing hypnotherapy, may not seem at first sight, to be in anything other than in a ‘day dreamy’ state. This day dream like state is something children do all the time. They will regularly use their imagination to drift off into their own mind, into their own inner world, dreaming up all kinds of adventures or stories. And it is while they are in this inner world, their inner mind, what us adults call the unconscious mind, they can start to retrain or relearn new way to behave or think. Hypnotherapy with children is very successful as their minds are really creative and receptive to positive suggestions and can comfortably and swiftly come up with solutions to those problems. Children’s hypnotherapy at Tim’s practice in Bath, is something many have not experienced before. Tim is very much aware of this and all efforts are made to ensure children coming for hypnotherapy are introduced to the process in a way that they understand and feel happy with.

Counselling Children or Hypnotherapy with Children
When using counselling therapy with children or young people Tim will usually work on a one to one basis. However, there are exceptions to this and it is not unusual that a parent stays in the room while the session takes place.
With hypnotherapy for children and young people, parents always stay in the room, so the parent, child or young person will feel more at ease. This is especially the case as for most children coming to Tim Langhorn for hypnotherapy, this would be the first time they have experienced this form of therapy. Parents therefore can then see for themself that the process is relaxed, gentle, safe and positive. All sessions of hypnotherapy for children include positive suggestions for confidence and self-esteem, whatever the issue.
Whatever the therapy, whether that is counselling for children or hypnotherapy with children, everything is calm, gentle and positive and is aimed at helping the child or young person overcome their present issue or ongoing symptom.
It is important that both you and your child can feel comfortable, confident and at ease with Tim Langhorn’s therapy. Confidentiality and your child’s welfare is Tim’s prime concern and everything he does or says is only ever done with that in mind.
