When it comes to today’s teenagers, parents can be forgiven for being more than a little overwhelmed. The challenges of hormones and growth spurts has been exasperated by social media and societal expectations, resulting in kids that feel the pressure to react appropriately to all sorts of situations before they’ve even reached puberty. Parents are stressed and confused, kids are strung out and anxious, and life gets hard for everyone, not just in the home environment, but in peer groups, school environments and extended family circles.
Some teenagers react well to an increase in physical activity, some need adjustments to diet or exposure to media and electronics. But what if your teenager needs a bit more?
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a natural, therapeutic tool and teenagers have the unique ability to use their imagination, flexibility and open minds to accept positive change (if willing). Hypnotherapy can help your teenager with:
- Fears and Phobias
- School or exam anxiety
- Attention issues
- Habit control
- Confidence building
- Communication skills
- Anger issues
- Bullying and social skills
- Coping mechanisms
- Sleep issues
- Interpersonal challenges
- Common fears
Hypnotherapy is also a fantastic accompaniment to medical treatment prescribed by your specialist, paediatrician or GP for depression, anxiety and PTSD.
What Would Happen?
Hypnotherapy is a simple way of focusing one’s attention by being guided into a relaxed and dream like state of consciousness. It is completely safe and drug-free, with your teenager opting for you to either be present or not. Participants become highly receptive to suggestions compatible to their goals and desires as they sit in a relaxed position.
Why Should My Teen Have Hypnotherapy?
Self image, relationship and communication skills, coping mechanisms and self-expectation are predominantly established during the adolescent years. The subconscious shelters critical thinking and negative feelings about who we think we are, and the use of hypnotherapy during the teenage years can greatly influence the person your teenager becomes in their adulthood. Helping them cope with issues early on enables them to live a happier and healthier life in the future.
