Theraputic PROGRAMMES: common concerns

A free, 1 hour consultation is offered before commencing any program or therapy session, which is an opportunity for me to meet you and your child and talk about how you would like the current situation to be different. 

I will also teach them about the different parts of the brain and what causes us to move from the rational, positive part that makes proper assessments of situations, to the more anxious, angry, depressed part. And because Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is an approach that has evolved through clinical research and modern developments in Neuroscience, I will be able to explain exactly how and why this process works so effectively.  So, even if your child feels like they are not ready at this time to book in with me, they will leave the consultation with new strategies and an understanding of how to self-manage their mindset and mental health better in the future.

Clinical, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy & Psychotherapy, NLP

The breakthrough - a term I'm fond of using to describe the moment in which I can clearly see the change in the young person I'm working with. 

For some, it occurs quickly, after a couple of sessions. For others, a few more.  Everyone makes change at their own pace. 

 

But when it happens, I am flooded with absolute pride for the young person in front of me.

 

That moment when a 16 year old boy, usually so insecure he talks with his head down, shielding his face with an overgrown fringe, walks in, dressed to the 9's, hair tied up, and sits open and upright in the chair with a big smile his face.

 

Being unable to get a word in, when a 10 year old girl, who struggled to think of any daily positives in session 1, barely takes a breath in-between the list of 15 she is happily reeling off.

 

Realising that the 15 year old girl, who was so terrified of the dark she still slept with the light on, walked to her session by herself at dusk. And the look of surprise on her face when you point this out because she hadn't even noticed - it just wasn't a problem anymore.

 

When the 12 year old girl, who was so shy and scared of saying the wrong thing that Mum had to talk for her in the consultation, struts in....yes struts...plonks herself down, looks you straight in the eye and just glows with self-esteem.

 

 

When a 15 year old boy, who had such crippling anxiety and paranoia that he hadn't been to school in months, stops on the way out and says, 'Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you.  I've decided to go back to school next week.' No fuss, no fear, like it's the most normal, casual thing in the world.

 

 

There are many ways I can measure your child's progress throughout the therapeutic process. Self-assessment within sessions, feedback from yourself and other key figures in their life and of course, their own observations of behavioural and emotional changes too.

 

I'm also a member of CORP, a national research programme measuring the amount of clinical 'significant change' that takes place with each individual using this therapeutic approach. Your child (and you with their permission) can be shown their weekly and overall progress visually which can be lovely to look back over and see just how far they have come. 

But the breakthrough is something else. Impossible to fully capture with data, numbers and progress graphs.

 

It's that moment at which all the different elements of the process appear to come together.  Where they don't even appear to recognise the enormity of the changes themselves, even though we clearly can.  

 

Because this is who they are now.  Being that person they always wanted to be.

 

Happy, calm, confident, in control.

 

You can be confident your child is in an experienced pair of hands. In addition to training in Clinical Solution Focused Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy I also have over a decade's experience of working with children in an educational setting as a teacher and Head of Year, responsible for the social and emotional well-being of the students in my care. 

 

Part of my therapeutic process includes teaching you and your child how the brain works to create the issues at hand so they can understand why they have been feeling or behaving this way. They will learn strategies to help them take back control in the first instance, and then be able use this knowledge and skills to better self-manage their emotions and behaviours more easily in the future.

 

I am creative in nature and this allows me to be flexible and responsive to individual needs. With younger children I may adapt explanations to include their favourite characters or interests and use various sensory resources if necessary to encourage positive engagement.

 

​I have an up to date Enhanced DBS certificate and am a member of the following professional bodies:

  • National Council For Hypnotherapy (NCH)

  • National Council Of Psychotherapists (NCP)

  • Association For Solution Focused Hypnotherapy (AfSFH)

Frequently asked questions

What does 'solution focused' mean and how is it different from other types of hypnotherapy I've heard about?


Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a well researched, science-based, modern approach to hypnotherapy that involves helping people to move towards their prefered outcomes, behaviours and feelings rather than revisiting or going over the past and problems in depth. In the initial consultation I will explain how the brain is working to create the issues at hand and explain how, from a (child friendly) scientific perspective, this solution focused approach works. Put very simply, we know, from modern discoveries in Neuroscience, that when we operate from the positive, intellectual part of the brain, we make proper, more rational assessments of situations and our mind is more open to identifying better solutions and behavioural changes. When we focus on problems and negativity too much we get more and more stuck in the anxious, angry, depressed part of the brain.

Of course, your child can be re-assured that I understand their concerns and know they feel very real to them at present, however, we do not need to focus on trauma or spend time delving into negative issues and problems to make significant changes.

Every session begins with talk therapy followed by 20-30 minutes of hypnosis (relaxation). We always start with your child reflecting on the postive events or moments from the previous week, creating lots of lovely endorphins and serotonin (happy chemical) which encourages them to think from the intellectual part of their brain - a fantastic, positive 'can do' resource that we can then utilise within the session, so they can get the very best out of themseves during the theraputic process.




Can anyone go into trance?


Yes. Trance just means 'focused attention.' It's something you, your child, even I do naturally every day for example, when driving the car or watching TV. Teenagers, like adults tend to prefer to relax back into the recliner chair, close their eyes and have a wonderfully relaxing experience. Younger children often prefer to keep their eyes open, focus on something of interest in the room such as an object, sensory toy or sit and colour in a picture. The important thing is that they feel calm, comfortable, relaxed and focused in the moment. With hypnosis we utilise this state of focus to help your child's brain make the belief and behaviour changes needed to reach their desired outcome.




How do you put somebody into trance?


You'll be pleased to know that there's no swinging pendulum as you may have seen on TV. I will use music and my voice to lead your child into a relaxing, calm and focused visualisation. I'll use stories and metaphors that allow them to create more helpful, positive thougths and beliefs about themselves.




Will you be able to control my child's mind and make them do things?


The thought of making your child clean their bedroom with just the click of your fingers may seem very appealing to you, however this is not something I am able to do. People who strut around like chickens on TV shows are doing that because they want to NOT because they have been made to. Once your child is relaxed I will use positive visualisations and stories to help change some of their unwanted behaviours and unhelpful beliefs but they will still be completely in full control. Their mind will reject anything that they don't feel is relevant and if they need to wake from the trance at any point they will be able to do so. In fact, as explained in previous answers, it is not unusual for younger children keep their eyes open, fidget or move around on their chair during the hypnosis part of the session and this is perfectly okay and normal.




Will my child have to relive events or keep going over the things causing them the problems?


Absolutely not. In fact, I will actively discourage them from doing so as my approach is 'solution focused' so rather than reliving the past, we will focus on moving forward to how they want things to be without having to overly dwell (if at all) on the past.




How many sessions will my child need?


Each young person is unique so it's hard to put an exact figure on it. For phobias, they will only need 3 sessions and a rough estimate for everything else is between 6 and 10 sessions.




How quickly will we see results?


Most children start to notice improvements within the first couple of weeks, with many starting to see changes after just the free consultation. During this I explain, in a child friendly way, the neuroscience behind how their brain is working in relation to their issue. This knowledge alone is often very powerful and gives them (and you) more clarity and hope.




How long does a session last?


Each session lasts an hour and I see children weekly or fortnightly.




Can I be in the session with my child?


Yes. In fact I would actively encourage it for the initial consultation. This is a chance for us all to meet, get an oveview of the concerns and for me to share with you the 'science bit.' I'll explain how the brain works in relation to the problems at hand and why your child is feeling or behaving the way they are. This will allow you all to go home feeling really informed and enlightened before making your decision either way about moving forward with the therapy. After this I am flexible to the wishes of the child. I am Enhanced DBS checked and if your child would rather see me alone you are more than welcome to sit and wait.




Are there any risks to hypnotherapy?


None at all. Your child will be in full control throughout the whole process. If there was anything that they did not feel 100% comfortable with their mind would just reject the idea during the relaxation.




Can someone have hypnotherapy if they are on anti-depresents or other medication?


Yes. If your child has been prescribed medication of this nature by a doctor then hypnotherapy can compliment and increase their effectiveness. Anti-depressants work by keeping the pleasure receptors in your brain open for longer to allow them to receive more of the happiness chemical, serotonin. Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is a process that helps you to create more serotonin, meaning more for the receptors to recieve.
