HypnoKids ® therapy
In both children and adults, the causes of many problems can be found in the subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy is a fast, effective treatment method in which children can solve problems in the subconscious mind in a playful way. In general, the treatment for children takes only a few sessions. Usually between 1 to 3 sessions. It is recommended to book at least two sessions to anchor the changes firmly in the subconscious mind.
In hypnosis therapy for children, the cooperation between parents – therapist and child is extremely important. Children and especially young children are very open to suggestions from the environment. Essentially, hypnotherapy is used to capture positive suggestions that support the child’s purpose in the subconscious mind. As a parent you play an important role in reinforcing these suggestions after the session.
What is also important in hypnosis is the motivation of the child. Ultimately, he / she is the one who decides whether a suggestion is recorded or not. It is therefore important that when you think about hypnotherapy for your son or daughter, that you involve him or her in the process.
A HypnoKids process always starts with a free telephone intake interview. During the telephone intake, we discuss the therapeutic objective and we can see if there is a connection to schedule an appointment. When you book an appointment with me, you will receive an extensive confirmation email from me with information on how you can prepare for the session.
As a parent, I ask you to watch two information videos explaining hypnosis and how you can prepare for the session as a parent. In sessions with children it is important that there is good cooperation between the parents, the child and the therapist.
Prior to the session, I also ask you to fill in an intake form. It is important to fill in this intake form calmly and as extensively as possible. This ensures that I can put my focus mostly on your son or daughter during the appointment.
At the start of the appointment there will be a preliminary meeting where you as a parent / carer will be present. Here, explanations will be given in language appropriate to the child what hypnosis is. We also briefly discuss the objective. When all questions have been answered, you can take a seat in a waiting room and I will work with your son or daughter.
Before I start the session I will have a short pre-talk just with your son or daughter and then we will start the transformation work. After the session you will be brought in again as a parent.
Please note: sessions minors require permission from both parents / guardians who have custody of the child.
“Achieving change with play, relaxation and imagination”
To explain the subconscious mind to young children, VR is used in some sessions. This helps the children to strengthen their imagination and also helps to increase the enthusiasm for the session.
