Adult comforting an unhappy child.

Children and teens today face more challenges to their mental health than ever before due to the increasing use of information technologies, social media, toxic chemicals, and an unprecedented rise in pediatric anxiety and hyperactivity disorders. The good news is that with hypnotherapy for children and hypnotherapy for teenagers, young people can overcome many of their problems and get back to enjoying a normal childhood.


The Inner World that Adults Don’t See

While adults often assume that children are generally happy and carefree, this isn’t always the case. Children experience a range of difficulties that are very real and affect their quality of life.

For example, social difficulties such as shyness, anger issues, and difficulty reading others’ emotions can make it hard for some children to make friends. Trouble concentrating at school can mean they are frequently told off by the teacher and can develop a negative self-image. Luckily, hypnotherapy for children can help improve your child’s self-esteem and performance issues.
