Children's problems, kids problems, bed wetting, school problems, shyness, fears and phobias have all been successfully helped by Stephen Chan hypnotherapist using hypnosis, hypnotherapy and specialised cognitive training.
When we are children, we are learning and experiencing things for the very first time. All of these experiences produce emotions and these emotions are very, very intense, because they are new to us but, the more we experience them, the less intense they become. Now 'mother nature' gave us a very efficient coping mechanism with which to deal with the intense emotions that made us feel bad or unhappy as children and we were able to just 'bottle' the feelings up.
This natural process is necessary to enable our fledgling psyches to survive relatively intact until we mature and reach adulthood. This would explain why we presume that children are so resilient when faced with situations that we as adults find emotionally challenging. However, this is the key...we are dealing with these situations as adults by allowing ourselves to get emotional, which is in fact the only truly effective way to deal with our emotions. The reality is, children don't or can't do this; they just 'bottle' their feelings up; but these emotions can, and do, affect them subconsciously, resulting in changes in behaviour. Sometimes these changes can be very significant and challenging - problem children and problem kids.
Unconscious stress affects the lives of children, regardless of the environment in which they are nurtured. There are many, many symptoms which suggest that a child is suffering from unconscious stress, the most common being bed wetting, breathing problems, children's fears, children's phobias, aggressive children, shyness, speech problems and general bad behaviour. These symptoms are all just an expression of an inner conflict, in fact that is all symptoms are - an expression of an inner conflict.
There is a method, using hypnosis and hypnotherapy, by which you as a parent can help eliminate an enormous amount of this unconscious stress from your child's life, easily and safely.
The Blowaway Technique
The Blowaway is a non-invasive, usually single session technique that has been specially designed to be most effective for children roughly between the ages of 6 and 16 - before the age of 16, the average child does not have the intellectual capacity to deal with a traditional "talking therapy".
The Blowaway technique combines hypnosis and hypnotherapy and your child's own fantastic imagination, to allow them to bring up any negative feelings and emotions which are affecting their lives.
During the session, your child will be encouraged to....."bring these feelings up and then you are going to blow these away and they are never going to come back. You are going to blow them away completely so they can never bother you again. We are going to blow away all these emotions and feelings that are affecting your life and then give you suggestions to make your life feel so much better."
One of the main reasons why this technique is so effective is because your child doesn't have to get through all the 'layers' that an adult inevitability builds up over the years.
Children are more than capable of just bringing up the emotions and how they are feeling and not just the experience on its own. The Blowaway Technique is literally used to just blow away this unresolved emotion.
Talking about the problem is not encouraged. Remember, it's not a talking therapy, there is no need to understand. This is a feeling therapy, an emotional release. We don't need to know about the how and the why, it's just about the feelings. We are going to just blow away those feelings. It is a fun, relaxing and liberating way of 'wiping the emotional slate clean'.
You or your partner (preferably both) will be asked to be present during the session and in fact you will be encouraged to participate in the whole process, so you will also get the opportunity to 'blow' a few things off your chest.
But, before we start, all parties involved have to promise each other not to ask each other what things came up during the session - this is very important because, if your child feels that they will be made to talk about whatever they have been blowing away, then this could hinder what your child presents to blow away. And anyway, you never know what will come up for you to "just blow away"!
As an alternative to blowaway, your child, especially older children and teenagers, may be better suited to a session or two of the specialised cognitive training I am a licensed consultant for, known as The Thrive Programme™ or perhaps a combination of the two a few weeks apart. The best approach for your child will be decided on either during a free initial meeting or when I first meet your child and have spoken with them.
