Children and adolescents are imaginative, extraordinarily open-minded and adaptive. These same great qualities also mean that they can be susceptible to over-active imaginations that perceive problems where there aren’t any, and failure everywhere. This level of stress can undermine a child’s confidence and cause performance and behavioral issues, fear or phobias, and stress-related problems. Hypnosis can help! Hypnosis is a safe, chemical-free alternative to pharmaceutical therapies, and perfect for children adolescents and teens precisely because they are so “imaginative, extraordinarily open-minded and adaptive.” This openness means that the critical, rational mind is easier to quiet and the subconscious mind easier to engage.
