Children & Teenagers

Young people are under more stress than ever before. The way they interact with each other in this age of social media, means they may experience a wider range of emotional and psychological problems.

The wonderful thing is that young people make excellent hypnotic subjects. I have treated children as young as 7 years old for a dog phobia right up to teenagers or young adults with confidence and self esteem issues.

They tend to make progress much faster than most adults.

The most common problem I treat in teenagers is exam stress. I tend to take a holistic approach, by initially reducing their stress levels. I then help them to improve their preparation, including diet, sleep and revision, leading up to the actual exams. Poor preparation is a major cause of stress and anxiety in these cases.
