A Dad's Perspective...

Father with two children

"My 10 year old daughter has been for 6 x 45 min sessions with Amanda for her anxiety and emotional issues and she has found it very useful and enjoys going so we have just set a further 5 sessions. Highly recommended and will hopefully keep in touch with Amanda for further sessions if needed. Thank you Amanda"

Hypnotherapy & Anxiety Help for Children and Teenagers

Hypnotherapy for Young People

Young people are receptive to hypnotherapy

Young people over the age of 5 are generally very receptive to hypnotherapy, particularly for dealing with issues such as trauma, anxiety, fear and phobias. I use a variety of techniques and approaches, tailored to the needs of each child or adolescent, with the emphasis on compassion and raising awareness of our own 'internal toolbox' which equips each and every one of us with the life skills we need.

How it Works


After an initial telephone discussion with parents or carers I hold a family consultation, usually in the child's home if this is appropriate. This takes around 45 minutes and enables me to draw up a therapy plan which I present to the parents before they commit to beginning the therapy. I am usually able to suggest some practical ways in which the child can be supported by other family members at this point.

Each therapy session lasts around 45 mins and is reviewed with the parents/carers at the end of each appointment. Again, any relevant practical tips are shared with the family.

A Mum's View...


"I took my son to see Amanda to resolve school work issues. We were both quite sceptical about whether hypnosis would have any effect but we have been very happy with the results. We have never used a hypnotherapist before, but Amanda listened carefully to the problem, was able to give a clear idea of how many sessions it might take and did not put us under any pressure. It's been over a month now and my son is soooooo much happier at school. His grades have improved and his confidence has grown. Thank you Amanda - we really appreciate your work."
