You’re child’s brain works differently to yours. But then you’ve probably noticed that already. In fact your child’s brain will work differently to your adult brain until around the age of 16.
Parenthood can be stressful. I know. I have three young children myself. I also served nearly 15 years in the Police Service before turning to my Hypnotherapy career full time. We all desperately want to help our children, to make everything right for them and to see them enjoying a happy childhood.
Who is the expert in your child? You are. Although it might not always feel like it, you spend more time with your child than anyone else. You know them better than anyone else. You are in a prime position to help them.
In this increasingly busy world it is becoming more common for our children to experience anxiety related problems. These anxieties can manifest themselves in many ways, including night terrors, phobias, bed wetting, lack of confidence, low self esteem and more. I work with you, their parent, using a combination of Psychotherapy and Hypnotherapy techniques to help you understand your child and help your child.
My mother has a saying – you can’t expect someone to change for you, you have to change yourself first. I work 1:1 with parents to support them through positive change. I am here to support you in facilitating and realising positive change for your child.
Children following the narrative they hear. By changing ourselves, we as parents can in turn positively change our children. We all try to do our best by our children but understanding how their brains work, how our adult brains work, how we can make small change ourselves and how that alone can help our children to realise fast and lasting change – is invaluable.
I don’t charge for the initial consultation, but you will immediately gain some invaluable insights. I don’t charge because I believe that choosing the right therapist for your child is crucial. I don’t see the need to charge overinflated fees for the first session – whilst you are still in a decision making process.
I am always asked how many Hypnotherapy sessions will be need? But this is like asking ‘How long is a piece of string?’ The good news is that children typically make positive change far more quickly than adults. Solution Focused Brief Hypnotherapy is as the name suggests – Brief. Hypnotherapy typically requires fewer sessions than other talking therapies but ultimately how long it takes and it’s effectiveness is down to you. Everyone is different, but the more you participate within the therapeutic process, the more you will benefit from it.
My Hypnotherapy Practice is spacious and private. It is nestled within a delightful village setting, just outside of Oxford City and close to the M40. It has generous free private off road parking and wheel chair access. I don’t typically book clients back to back. The emphasis is on helping my individual clients and making everything convenient & seamless for you.
