Children and Hypnotherapy
Children are marvelous subjects for hypnosis, as they tend to be easily hypnotized.
Children do not have many of the inhibitions that adults tend to have, and they also have limited capacity for critical judgment.
Many children's games also involve deep involvement, fantasy and pretend experiences. These are all forms of hypnosis.
Hypnotherapy can help young children control or eliminate many childish habits such as bed wetting, nose picking, nail biting and other mannerisms
Older children can be helped with
non-understood grief and other issues.
Among adolescents, hypnotherapy has been effective in dealing with behavioral problems and delinquency.
Because children are easy to hypnotize, they are also easily influenced by comments made by parents, teachers and other adults in positions of authority.
Negative comments such as "You are stupid" or "You are useless" can leave deep imprints in a child's mind.
Adults should therefore exercise great care when speaking to children, especially when scolding them.
