Counselling therapy for children
I have been offering therapy to children and counselling children, for many years. I work in a person centred counselling way. Thereby, enabling children to fully focus on the things important to them. When I offer therapy to children, they are able to explore emotions and any issues, without being judged. The children I work with, soon learn that they will be taken seriously, whatever they bring and whatever they say.
My expertise counselling children and young people, has taught me to be completely open and honest. I believe it is my sincerity and calm approach, which enables me to gain the trust of the children I meet. Successful child therapy and counselling, requires the rapport needed for a successful working partnership.
Hypnotherapy with children
Can hypnosis and hypnotherapy be used with children and will children respond well to this form of therapy?
The answer to whether or not hypnotherapy can be used to help children is definitely, yes it can! And very successfully help children.
When working with children, offering hypnotherapy, I induce a light state of hypnosis. This is quite natural and very safe for all children. Children experiencing therapy under hypnosis, hypnotherapy, will utilise their imagination. They will to drift off into their own inner world. They may well dream up all kinds of adventures or stories, while under hypnosis.
While in this inner world, their inner mind, they can start to retrain or relearn, new ways to behave or think. Children are very creative and receptive to positive suggestions. They can comfortably and swiftly come up with solutions to most problems.
Nearly all the children I meet, have no experience of hypnotherapy. I am of very much aware of this and work with them accordingly. I aim 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 offering child therapy and counselling children, I will usually work on a one to one. However, there can be exceptions to this. With agreement, it is not unusual that a parent stays in the room, while a session takes place.
Children’s therapy utilising hypnosis, is slightly different. When I work with children under hypnosis, for hypnotherapy, a parent always stay in the room. This is only required for young people under the age of sixteen. Parents can therefore observe the therapy process. They can ensure that the process is relaxed, gentle, safe and positive. All sessions of children’s hypnotherapy include positive suggestions, for confidence and self-esteem.
Whether I am counselling children or offering hypnotherapy to children, everything I do is calm, gentle and positive. The therapy process is aimed at helping the child, overcome their present issue or ongoing symptom.
It is important for me, that both you and your child can feel comfortable. I want you both to feel confident and at ease with any therapy I offer.
Confidentiality and your child’s welfare is my prime concern. Everything I do or say, is only ever done with that in mind.
