Counselling and Hypnotherapy

Therapy for Children
I am a mother of two grown up sons and have worked in a local primary school for 15 years along side pupils needing emotional and educational support. My skills include handling anxiety and confidence issues, selective mutism, separation anxiety, sleep problems and fussy eaters. I am experienced in helping pupils with Special Educational Needs including Autism, Selective Mutism, social anxieties and low self esteem.
Every child is unique and special but sometimes they experience problems with feelings or behaviours that cause disruption to their lives and the lives of those around them.
Therapy helps children understand muddled feelings and upsetting events that they are having trouble dealing with on their own.
The therapeutic relationship that develops between your child and their Therapist is very important. Your child must feel comfortable, safe and understood. This type of trusting environment makes it easier for the child to express his/her thoughts and feelings and to use the therapy in a useful way.
Hypnotherapy for Children
Children’s minds are very open to Hypnotherapy as they have no pre-formed ideas and are excellent at using their imaginations. Young children spend most of their day in their imaginations so are experts in the use of visualisation and pretending skills. This makes Hypnotherapy with children a lot quicker than with adults.
Each child is treated as an individual and I write a personalised, age related script for them using their own language and ideas as this results in the Hypnotherapy being easily accepted by their subconscious and therefore it is more effective.
With parental consent under 18’s can attend the therapy unaccompanied. I am CRB checked and hold a ‘Safe Guarding Children Certificate’, I am fully insured and a member of several professional governing bodies.
For older children, just like adults, having someone non-judgmental to talk to, someone who is not connected to home or school can help put thoughts and feelings into perspective and change can seem a lot easier with gentle guidance.
