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 Louise Joslin:
I offer a free face-to-face consultation
I would never have believed the profound effect that simple Hypnosis and NLP techniques can have on someone’s life until I experienced them on a course in 2005. Within 4 years I had qualified as a Hypnotherapist and a Master NLP Practitioner (with Richard Bandler).
Prior to my therapy work with NLP4Kids I had a long and successful IT management career within the publishing industry. I have always loved a challenge and I really enjoy learning new things and I was happiest when I was helping other people to get the best out of their technology. It wasn’t until I experienced NLP & Hypnosis for myself on a management course that I started to re-evaluate my life and realised that what I really wanted to do with my life, was to make a difference in people’s lives and I have never looked back or been happier in my work.
As human beings from time to time we all suffer from fear, anger, anxiety, lack of confidence and self-esteem amongst other issues. The truth is that none of us are capable of achieving our full potential or making good decisions whilst we are experiencing these negative feelings and children are no different.
The good news is that we can all learn some really simple skills to eliminate these negative feelings and some others to make the most of our positive ones so that we are free to reach our full potential. Children in particular can be such great fun to work with too. Their boundless energy, their endless creativity and the fact that they are so open to learning new things makes them the perfect subjects to teach these skills to. It’s also great to know that I am helping to equip them with simple and effective skills that will help them throughout their lives.
Having run several skills workshops in more deprived areas, as well as working on a one to one basis with both children and adults, I can honestly say that the positive results never fail to amaze me. In fact, I believe that these skills are so useful and important that they should be part of the school curriculum. This would mean that children from a very young age and from all walks of life would have the opportunity to achieve their full potential and it is my mission to make that happen. In the meantime, I will continue to share them on a one to one basis within therapy and my workshops.
I am located in Royston, Hertfordshire. I offer a free initial consultation call worth over £100.
