How Hypnosis Can Help Children
Children can respond well to hypnosis because being young and having vivid imaginations leaves them less sceptical. They are open to new experiences and are not put off by prejudged opinions.
Children usually enjoy the hypnosis experience as they find it easy to relax and focus. The results are positive and children are able to find a sense of calm which enables them to see their situations exactly as they are and not in an emotional, anxious turmoil. The sense of relief and return to childhood happiness is a wonderful outcome.
I encourage a parent to stay with their child during their appointment, which can be an enjoyable experience for both!
