The process of hypnotherapy for children needs to be very calm and gentle. It is very important that a working relationship is able to be established between the child and therapist.
An initial consultation is essential; wherever possible, I like to carry out a consultation via webcam. There are a number of reasons for this – the child will be in the comfort and safety of their own home with a parent sitting next to them. They don’t need to have the extra anxiety of travelling into town to see me in an environment that is strange to them. Children these days are very phone / computer / webcam savvy and are quite happy to chat freely using this medium.
During the initial consultation, through direct and indirect questioning I would hope to find out what the problem is (which in many cases is not what the original issue is). Poor self esteem and anxieties can lead to many apparently unrelated issues such as binge eating, social anxiety and anger issues.
