I work with children who are struggling with their emotional and mental wellbeing. Through 1:1 sessions or workshops I help give them tools and strategies to cope better with the challenges they are facing like anxiety, phobias, depression, lack of confidence, low self-esteem, exam stress, and more.

I discovered NLP through personal experience. I have several friends whose children struggled with extreme anxiety; they found that NLP extremely helpful in dealing with the problems they faced together, and a family member used NLP to entirely cure a phobia.

I’ve always been interested in psychology and emotional health; with such positive and remarkable experiences amongst friends and family and a desire for a career change that would be more fulfilling, I was inspired to embark upon training in NLP.

As a parent myself, I could see how effective NLP could be for children. My own experience made it clear how children could greatly benefit from better tools to help them process and overcome emotional challenges. NLP can help put children back in a positive mindset, build their confidence and empower them to take control of their thoughts and feelings.

What especially appealed to me about NLP was how solution focused it is. This is so appropriate for children; there is no need to spend time dwelling on past trauma. Each session is client led and tailored to exactly meet the individual’s needs, offering kids practical skills, tools, and techniques to help overcome challenges, with clear directions that the client can use right away to start making changes. I also loved that NLP skills are long-lasting as kids can use the methods to deal with any emotional challenge life inevitably throws at them.

On a personal level, NLP gave me the support for my child I was searching for but couldn’t find anywhere else. I am now a qualified NLP Practitioner and NLP4Kids and NLP4Parents Practitioner so I can share these tools with others.

These skills can help anybody, children and parents alike, and you don’t have to be ‘broken’ to benefit from NLP – it can improve anyone’s life at any time in a quick and cost-effective way.

I offer online and face to face sessions. Please give me a call so we can chat about how I can help.

How Does Our Therapy Help Children and Young People?

We use a combination of safe and effective therapies with children and teenagers that help them learn how to control their thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Our practitioners are specialists in working with children using a form of therapy called NLP. This stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. "Neuro" relates to the brain and "linguistic" refers to language and how it is used inside the mind and out of the mouth! "Programming" describes the patterns and habits created, learnt and followed. Using NLP techniques and strategies, (which we have adapted to be fun, safe and easy for children and teenagers to use) we give young people the skills to think in new ways so that they feel in control [Read More]

We use a combination of safe and effective therapies with children and teenagers that help them learn how to control their thoughts, emotions and behaviour. Our practitioners are specialists in working with children using a form of therapy called NLP. This stands for Neuro Linguistic Programming. "Neuro" relates to the brain and "linguistic" refers to language and how it is used inside the mind and out of the mouth! "Programming" describes the patterns and habits created, learnt and followed. Using NLP techniques and strategies, (which we have adapted to be fun, safe and easy for children and teenagers to use) we give young people the skills to think in new ways so that they feel in control and learn to understand the world from the perspective of others as well as their own. NLP is a cognitive form of therapy, with some parallels to CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy.) Our work is effective in helping children overcome bad habits, behaviour problems, fears and self esteem problems as well as many other challenges. (See the list below for more suggestions about the types of problems we can help with.)

In addition, our practitioners may have qualifications in other specialist therapies, such as EFT/TFT (tapping techniques), Coaching, Counselling and Hypnotherapy for children.

Hypnosis is perfectly safe for children because it is a relaxed state that they already utilise when learning, watching television or doing something creative. Some children will be able to experience a deep, eyes closed relaxing trance. Young children are usually more suited to an awakened trance. This is induced when playing games, colouring or whilst other activities that our Hypnotherapy4Kids practitioners have been trained to use. Our Hypnotherapists will notice the subtle shifts in your childs levels of awareness so that they can begin to implant suggestions for change or improvement as soon as they see that an awakened trance is achieved.

The first step in helping your child is to contact a practitioner who is local to you. You can call them on the number above or complete the contact box below if you would like the practitioner to contact you. They will conduct a consultation with you, either over the phone or in person. Once they have understood the challenges your child is facing, they will invite you and your child to meet with them. If you decide to go ahead with some therapy or coaching sessions for your child, the therapist will advise you of the best course of action. Your therapist will give you feedback and advise to help you support your child and you will remain in full control of the number of sessions you book and how often. [Read Less]
