Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for Children

Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy empowers children and teens to take control of their mental health by rewriting their inner dialogue and transforming self-doubt into self-empowerment, teaching them skills they can use for a lifetime.

I love the process of working with children; it is extremely rewarding and is a constant source of inspiration for me. I find immense joy in immersing myself in their imaginative worlds and witnessing the profound transformations that so often occur.

Furthermore, I deeply value the opportunity to support a child at a formative time in his or her life, addressing challenges before they become deeply ingrained and long-lasting.

What sorts of problems are typical for children?

My own work with a range of children has demonstrated the effectiveness of Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy in helping with:

General Anxiety

Anger issues.


Self-esteem issues

lack of Confidence

Bed wetting

Sleep issues

Study and Exam related Stress


Refusing to go to school

Eating disorders and Selective Eating

negative Body Image

Habits (thumb sucking, nail biting, hair pulling, skin picking, tics)

How do I support children and teens using a powerful and effective combination of scientifically validated techniques?

Every child is unique, and I am committed to equipping them with skills to navigate a variety of situations, supporting them in achieving their goals. I employ the most effective techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy, tailored to each child’s individual needs.

Combining Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with Hypnotherapy

Through this approach, I help children and teens reframe their unhelpful thinking patterns and experience these new outcomes -in a very realistic way within the safe context of hypnotherapy. This process significantly reinforces the positive outcome resulting from changes in beliefs and enhances the transformative effects of embracing new, healthier thoughts and behaviours.

Additionally, I record tailor-made guided visualization and positive affirmations for on going support at home, reinforcing the effect of therapy and the results.

Accessing Inner Resources

Children, like adults, can sometimes overlook their strengths. They may excel in certain tasks or areas of life while struggling with low self-esteem overall.

In such cases, I find it beneficial to emphasise the child's strengths, areas of confidence, and past successes.

By focusing on the positives, I help children reframe some of the more negative ideas they may hold about themselves and their abilities.

Solution focused therapy for children

Adopting a solution-focused approach allows children to develop practical strategies to achieve their goals.

This approach is a fantastic way to help children identify their inner resources and come up with personalised, powerful and meaningful solutions.– instead of focusing on their problems.

These ‘solutions’ can be identified and experienced in a very realistic way using hypnosis.

Why choose Hypnotherapy ?

"Hypnotherapy is like a gentle breeze that whispers to a child's soul, unlocking hidden strengths and illuminating paths of self-discovery. It nurtures dreams, calms fears, and empowers young hearts to embrace their fullest potential."

Hypnotherapy has a great track record in helping children

Children respond amazingly well to hypnotherapy because they are more creative and open to positive suggestion. They have vivid imaginations which makes it much easier to access the unconscious and bring about the desired change in their behaviour,  break bad habits and negative thinking and become more confident.

Is Hypnotherapy safe?

Hypnosis with children is safe, gentle, supportive, and focused on empowering the child to access their own inner resources to address any issues that may have been holding them back. There is no mind control or loss of control involved. During the session, I guide the child into a state of focused relaxation using age-appropriate language and techniques.

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring highly-focused state of mind that we all experience to varying degrees. Daydreaming, becoming absorbed in a book, the moments just before falling asleep or upon waking up—all of these are examples of a hypnotic state.

It's important to note that children are naturally imaginative and often more receptive to hypnotic suggestions, making hypnotherapy a potentially effective tool for addressing a variety of issues
