Working with Children
- Half of lifelong mental illness starts before the age of 14
- 75% of young people with a mental health problem are not receiving treatment
- Children with anxiety and depression are often not being identified or given help

Hypnotherapy and NLP can be highly effective for the treatment of various children’s issues. Children can be more receptive because they have vivid imaginations which makes it much easier to access the unconscious and bring about the desired change.
I make the sessions fun and interactive and give children skills for life to be able to recognise and deal with anxiety, depression and other mental health difficulties and to know when to seek help.
I am qualified, insured and have a DBS check in place to work with children. I believe strongly in addressing children’s mental health needs and offer a price reduction for all under 18’s.
Depending on the child’s age and whether are ‘competent’ I may require a parent or carer to be present in sessions. We would discuss this during the initial consultation. I also need consent from a parent or carer for all children under 18.
