Children and Hypnosis

Children are very easy to hypnotize, as they are in unintentional hypnosis until about eight years old.  Then they start to develop their conscious mind and they begin to add logic and reasoning to what is happening around them. Even after the age of eight or nine they continue to go in and out of hypnosis easily until their teenage years.  If the child is in a stressful situation or home life they will stay in unintentional hypnosis even longer.  Before they develop their conscious mind what they hear, see or react to is true for them.  They have no way to protect themselves emotionally. Many children will begin to exhibit unwanted  habits and behaviors to help them deal with stress. This could include nail biting, hair pulling, nightmares, bed wetting, weight problems, low self esteem, and exaggerated fears and anxieties.  Hypnosis can help with these problems and much more including attention and behavioral difficulties.  Children are a joy to work with and the results can be extremely powerful for them and those around them.
