Working with children is always quite different from working with adults. Children are often more naturally open to new ways of looking at things, and hypnotherapy can work very quickly. Often, the sessions are made up of more practical techniques that the child can take away with them and start using right away, with shortened 'eyes closed' visualisations incorporated too as appropriate. Children are naturally on the move all the time and it's quite ok that they are not sitting still, listening with eyes closed all the time during a session of hypnotherapy. Some can do this and some are not yet ready, and that's fine. It all works the same!
I endeavour to utilise the child's own interests in their own personalised hypnotherapy programme and a parent is present at all times (often benefitting in their own way too with a little bit of down time).
If you're thinking of choosing hypnotherapy to help your child please ensure that the practitioner is fully qualified, and holds an up to date DBS certificate.
