Children increasingly battling phobias and bad habits with Hypnotherapy Wednesday 28 May 2008 PDF Print As this year’s National Hypnotherapy Week approaches (2 – 8 June 2008), more and more people are beginning to acknowledge the benefits of using hypnotherapy and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) to help children overcome a variety of common problems. Difficulties and habits including nail-biting, bed-wetting, nightmares, food phobias and exam stress can be gently and effectively tackled with hypnotherapy and NLP. Alicia Eaton, one of the UK’s leading Hypnotherapists and Advanced NLP Practitioners, explains, “Hypnotherapy is already recognised as a safe and natural therapy and, when combined with NLP, can also show children how to understand their patterns of thinking, feeling and behaving. By learning how to alter these patterns, this helps them to ultimately overcome many day-to-day problems without the need for traditional medical intervention.” She continues, “Hypnotherapy is ideally suited to children as the trance-like state is almost identical to their experiences of childhood play and fantasy. Response to treatment is often rapid and helps foster an attitude of independence and mastery.” Hypnotherapy is a safe and fast solution for many problems encountered by children and young people, ranging from common phobias such as needles, dogs and spiders, to confidence issues including low self-esteem, fear of speaking aloud and performance anxiety. Alicia, who has a practice in London’s Harley Street and another in Hertfordshire, also treats eating problems in children, ranging from food phobias and fussy eating, to cravings and over-eating. Originally a Montessori teacher who ran her own school, Alicia Eaton has over ten years’ experience of working with children and is also fully police-checked.
