Hypnosis for Children NYC
Hypnosis is not just a tool for adults. Children are ideal candidates for hypnosis. Their vivid imaginations help them to enter into a hypnotic state easily and allows them to achieve exceptional benefits from hypnosis. Childhood is an ideal time to target fears, anxieties and phobias because the phobias are generally not as strong as they are in adults. In essence, you can lessen problems and encourage positive behaviors before the child has even reached adulthood.
Asthma and Allergies
Two of the most common childhood problems can be handled through hypnosis. While asthma and allergies are often ongoing medical issues, the child’s reaction to them can be modified. By encouraging relaxation during an asthma attack or an allergic reaction, you can reduce the severity of the attack. In some cases, asthma diagnosis for childhood asthma can be reversed. Children often outgrow asthma that they experience in childhood, so it is possible to speed up that change and allow the child to handle the emotional issues that could be triggering their condition.
Ending Bad Habits
Many of the bad habits that people experience actually began in childhood. From nail biting to obsessive compulsive disorder, these issues can be alleviated through hypnosis. While hypnosis may not be able to cure the condition in every case, it can lessen the anxiety and stress that are causing these negative behaviors. In addition, hypnosis works with the subconscious mind to improve self-confidence, positivity and relaxation. By improving these feelings, you can reduce the severity and incidence of bad habits.
Studies have shown that hypnosis can be helpful for conditions like ADHD, dyslexia and bed wetting. In a 1975 study, hypnosis was shown to help 75 percent of children with dyslexia. They were able to say their words better, recognize them quicker and modify their behaviors. Hypnosis for children can improve ADHD by improving the child’s ability to focus on a problem at hand and ignore distractions. When it comes to bed wetting, hypnosis can help to overcome the passive rebellion that is causing children to wet their beds at night.
Beyond ending basic bad habits, hypnosis can help children improve their self-confidence. It allows them to overcome the trauma of being bullied and can improve their test taking or study habits. Hypnosis is also effective at healing sleeping problems, bed wetting and a wide range of conditions that are common among children.
Working With Memories
Many of our worst memories begin in childhood. From negative experiences at the dentist to incidences of trauma, these memories can shape the person that we will become. Through an in-person hypnosis for children session, the child will get an opportunity to reframe these negative memories. If they have had a negative experience at the dentist in the past, they will be given suggestions and visualization techniques to change the way that they perceive the memory. Through memory work, the child can gain a better control of their emotions and change how they handle specific situations.
Hypnosis is a completely natural state that is similar to the feeling you get when you arrive at a location without remembering how you got there. Through hypnosis, we can work directly with the subconscious mind to achieve impressive results.
