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 child’s 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]

About Lisa Birtles:
I first came to know about NLP when I went for a 1:1 therapy session for myself. As a result of this session some life-changing things happened for me! I knew this was something special, and I decided to train as an NLP Practitioner. The rest, as they say, is history…
I now practice NLP and Hypnosis with children, young people and their parents because I want to share how simple and effective NLP is – I really wish I had known about it when I was growing up. If I had known then what I know now I would have saved myself years of low self esteem and self-doubt and I would have had good strategies to quickly get myself back on track when I wasn’t feeling good about myself or others.
I also work with parents, carers and teachers to help them use NLP techniques and strategies with the children they care for – and as a mum to two amazing and very different boys I know from personal experience how useful they can be when motivating them to feel confident, do their homework, brush their teeth, be kind to each other, express and manage their feelings and emotions!
Prior to getting involved with NLP4Kids I worked in large businesses for over 20 years as a Human Resources professional, and as I am also a Certified Career Coach I have plenty of useful tips to share with young people on how to recognise what they are good at from a young age and to use this knowledge to make good conscious decisions for themselves regarding their studies and what they do when they leave school – and then how to achieve their goals and dreams!!!
I now use NLP and hypnosis help children and young people be able to make good, conscious decisions about their life and their learning, and to learn helpful strategies to manage and cope with the many challenges and demands that life in today’s 24/7 social-media age brings. Its my dream to help young people believe in themselves and have the confidence to resist pressure from their peers, the media and celebrities to conform to unrealistic ideas of perfection.
I also combine my NLP4Kids expertise with my work as an Empowering Learning Practitioner to help children who are struggling with their literacy and numeracy – I am excited to be getting some great results very quickly and unlocking the true potential and creativity of some wonderful little people!
I am proud to be working with children and young people from all walks of life, and to be supporting some wonderful childrens’ and young peoples’ charities in my NLP4Kids work.
