Children and Hypnotherapy: A Gentle Solution


As we approach World Hypnosis Day on January 4, 2024, it’s an excellent opportunity to highlight the benefits of hypnotherapy for children. Recognised for its gentle approach, hypnotherapy offers an effective, non-invasive solution to various issues that young ones may face, such as bed-wetting, phobias, and concentration difficulties.


Understanding Hypnotherapy for Children:

Child-centered hypnotherapy involves guiding young minds into a relaxed state. It’s a process that’s imaginative and engaging, utilising stories and metaphors that resonate with children, allowing them to address and overcome their challenges.


The Gentle Approach

Hypnotherapy’s non-invasive, medication-free approach makes it a preferred choice for many parents. The sessions are designed to be comforting and engaging, ensuring a safe and supportive environment for children.


Effectiveness for Various Issues


  • Bed-Wetting: Hypnotherapy can effectively address bed-wetting by helping children gain subconscious control over their bladder.

  • Phobias and Fears: Whether it’s a fear of the dark or anxiety around new experiences, hypnotherapy can help children overcome these fears in a comforting way.

  • Concentration and Focus: Techniques used in hypnotherapy can enhance a child’s ability to concentrate, aiding in their overall academic and social development.


Celebrating World Hypnosis Day

This World Hypnosis Day, we celebrate the diverse applications of hypnotherapy, particularly its significant impact on children’s mental health and well-being. It’s a day to acknowledge the gentle power of this therapy in transforming young lives.


A Collaborative Process

Involving parents is key to the success of hypnotherapy for children. Hypnotherapists often equip parents with strategies to support their child’s progress, making the therapy more holistic and effective.


If your child is facing challenges that could be alleviated through hypnotherapy, we encourage you to reach out. Connect with a qualified hypnotherapist from the New Zealand Association of Professional Hypnotherapists (NZAPH) to explore how this gentle therapy can make a difference in your child’s life.



Hypnotherapy stands out as a compassionate and effective solution for children. This World Hypnosis Day, let’s recognise its role in nurturing and supporting the mental and emotional health of our youngest generation. Reach out to an NZAPH member today and take a step towards a brighter future for your child.
