hypnosis for children

Children’s problems, anxiety, school problems, shyness, fears and phobias have all been successfully helped by Stephen Chan hypnotherapist using hypnosis, hypnotherapy and the Thrive Programme®.

When we are children we are experiencing and learning things for the very first time.

How we deal with and process all of this depends on what we have been taught or more often what we have observed from those around us.

If a child hasn’t been taught how to ‘effectively’ process things, then they are likely to process them negatively which creates fear, anxiety and stress – as with adults, children’s problems are mostly anxiety-based!

Please remember that is not about blame. If your child has problems it isn’t because of ‘bad’ parenting’, it takes really effective parenting skills, the sorts of skills which aren’t really taught anywhere else to help our children to overcome anxiety-related problems.

You didn’t know any of this so, this is not your fault!

My success when it comes to treating children is through a programme which teaches them how to process things effectively. Teaching them how they can be in control of their own thoughts, be in control of their own feelings, and be in control of their reactions. This means they will feel that they have a choice in how they see things, and most importantly how they feel about them and react to them.

child hypnosisFor children under the age of 16, at least one of the parents will be involved in the learning process. The main reason is that once you understand what I am teaching, you will be able to pass the message on to your child in more ways than I possibly could. It would also be very confusing for your child if you and I weren’t congruent in what we were teaching them.

This programme isn’t a talking therapy, therefore talking about the problem is neither encouraged nor necessary.

The programme is a fun, relaxing, interactive learning programme in which your child develops both the mindset and skill-set in order to handle anything that life puts before them – in the most effective and beneficial way they possibly can.

Sean aged 9 overcame his phobias and fear with me – SO CAN YOU!

Stephanie’s daughter overcame her fear of being sick with me – SO CAN YOURS!

My teenage son changed his life with Stephen – SO CAN YOURS!

This is the written testimonial from the mother of an 11 year old with Emetophobia (fear of sick):

 “My daughter started complaining of a sore stomach in her last year of primary school. Sore stomachs continued off and on so I took her to the doctor for fear of something being seriously wrong but the doctor gave her the all clear. She then started grammar school and things started to gradually take a down turn, where she started crying in the mornings not wanting to go to school which eventually lead to her refusing to go to school altogether and her behaviour began to get very disruptive. We took her to numerous professionals who could not find anything wrong other than slight anxiety. She eventually admitted to us that she had a fear of sick and this was why she refused to go to school as she was scared of others being sick or herself being sick, which explained why she was behaving out of character as we were forcing her to go to school and pushing her into her fear!!

We were at our wits end to know what to do for we knew she needed to go to school for her education and her exams were coming up. It was her Granda then who had been looking up Emetophobia on the internet and found Stephen, so we decided to give him a ring and arrange an appointment to meet him. Stephen made us feel totally relaxed and was able to answer all our questions so we knew then he was the one to help our daughter!!. We were able to get an appointment for the following week which was brilliant. When we first walked in he greeted us like he’d known us for years and made us all feel so comfortable. Our daughter came out feeling great and couldn’t wait to see Stephen the following week. He taught her how to change her negative thoughts into positive thoughts and how feeling positive taught her to be confident and able to face her fear. She did have her ups and downs over the 6 week course but I can honestly say Stephen worked a miracle on our daughter. She has been going to school every day and looking forward to it and sees the positive side of everything now.

We cannot thank you enough Stephen for all your help, kindness and support. You really have done an amazing job and we thank you so so much”.
