Can children be treated using Hypnosis?
Hypnosis can be highly effective for the treatment of various children’s issues. Children are more open to hypnosis as they are more suggestible . They have vivid imaginations, as children play using their imagination pretending to be a fireman, a super hero, a nurse etc Having such vivid imaginations makes it much easier to reach their subconscious mind and make the desired changes . As far as a child is concerned we tell them a story asking them to pretend to do certain things like imagine a TV, now turn it on and choose a channel and you are on that channel etc For a sports mad child we would incorporate sport.
Hypnosis with children can bring about effective results very quickly due to the fact that children don’t have the years of conditioning and resistance that many adults have. Because children are used to learning and following instruction they are often more receptive to trying something new, such as hypnosis.
Hypnosis can be an effective treatment for a variety of problems in children.
