Meet Elaine, Your Local Hypnotherapist.
Child Hypnotherapy Near Me: How It Helps
Child hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can treat a wide range of issues. Elaine, a local hypnotherapist, has a unique perspective on this. Elaine shared, “my clients who struggle low self-esteem, low confidence and anxiety as well as symptoms relating to OCD, ADHD and autism have made good progress as a result of hypnotherapy and it has been great to see those children start to feel better.”
Elaine’s strengths that enable her to help children is her empathy and an in-depth understanding of children which Elaine gained from over 13 years of working closely with children prior to becoming a hypnotherapist. Elaine has found that some children who have ADHD and autism have gone undiagnosed and some parents have felt they need to turn to medication to help their child. Some of the symptoms of ADHD and autism are heightened anxiety and hypersensitivity, OCD, attention difficulties and difficulties fitting in at school.
Tailored Child Hypnotherapy Sessions for Your Unique Child
One of the unique aspects of Elaine’s practice is her focus on tailoring child hypnotherapy sessions to your child’s specific needs. Elaine takes the time to get to know each child, asking questions prior to hypnosis such as, “Who’s your child’s hero? What’s your child’s favourite animal? What are their favourite movies or series?” “What are you child’s hobbies?” “ What are the names of your those who you child has close relationships with?” Elaine ensures that the hypnosis addresses the problems the child is experiencing while including those things that your child loves and cares about.
A Supportive and Understanding Approach to Child Hypnotherapy
Working with children requires a special approach, and Elaine is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment. Elaine has often travelled to the children’s homes to do hypnosis so that the child can feel safe and therefore relax more easily.
Sometimes if a child is avoiding going to school, a child may not want to say that they are making progress because they know they will go back to school. Avoidance is a behaviour relating to anxiety. Elaine shared a story relating to avoidance: A child came for a second session of hypnosis and said, “I haven’t found the hypnosis helpful.” And I said, ‘ok, let’s not do hypnosis today as it isn’t helpful for you.” The child said, “Oh, no, no, I’d really like to have hypnosis.”
What to Expect in a Child Hypnotherapy Session
For children, the child hypnotherapy experience is different from that of adults; children enjoy the unique experience of the hypnosis including a message from the child’s hero or favourite character, talking about how the hero had experiencing similar difficulties to the child’s and the hero is ok now.
Prior to a hypnotherapy session, a transcript of the hypnosis is sent to the parents for approval and a recording of the hypnosis is sent to the parents when the session ends. Parents find this reassuring to know what the hypnosis will entail and parents are encouraged to play the recording regularly for their child.
The benefit of having the session recorded is that the child can self help, self sooth with the recording plus the repetition of playing the recording reinforces the hypnosis.
Elaine collaborates closely with you and your child, offering guidance and support every step of the way.
