John absolutely loves working with children and teens.
In part because hypnosis naturally activates the same imaginative state your child spends much of their day in. One minute they're a monster, the next a princess, or superhero.
And as teenagers, their intense trance-like focus on video games, sports, or texting (and hardwiring for novel new ideas) can create powerful metaphors in hypnosis to make rapid, positive changes in their day-to-day experience.
No matter what you've tried to help your child or teen change their unwanted habit, behavior or issue -- hypnosis can produce desired new outcomes fast. With most common problems below seeing dramatic improvement, or complete resolution, in 2-4 sessions.
Children (ages 5-12)
Teens (ages 13-19)
With children and very young ones, the process is about the active engagement of the mind. It is very common that children's eyes are open -- with plenty of wriggling around!
With teens, John adapts similar relaxation and hypnotic suggestion techniques used for adults to fit your teen's attention span, maturity level, and personality.
John uses lots of imaginative activities, metaphors, and stories for both teens and children. As well as nuero-linquistic therapy to eliminate anxiety, stress, self-esteem and trauma issues. All of these are age-appropriate and also matched to your particular child’s interests, attention span, and personality. As well as any ADHD or autism issues.
Yes, certainly. You are very welcome to be with us so you know just what is happening and usually younger children prefer you to be there. However, teenagers often feel more comfortable and less self-conscious on their own.
Although you may be in the session, John's focus is actually on chatting directly with your child, so please don’t be offended!
He needs to listen to what your child themselves are thinking and feeling about things. At the same time, John focuses on picking up the unique language they use to express themselves. So he can make the imaginative visualizations & suggestions more meaningful to them.
Yes, before your first session, John will have a talk with you on the phone about whatever problem your child is experiencing, and how he can best help. He's very happy to answer your questions.
He explains what you and your child will be doing in the session so you know what to expect. And will also explain how you can support the work he does with your child between sessions.
As a father of 4 grown children + an 11 year old at home now, I understand the emotional reality of kids. I also achieved advanced Children's Hypnotherapy training from one of the top children's hypnotherapist alive today.
