Do you worry about how your child may be interpreting the world around them or about your child’s behaviour or general mood? I can help your child if they need support with; managing their emotions, anxiety, stress, anger, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, school transition, bullying, teenage development, coping with neurodivergence (ADHD, autism, dyslexia), and so much more.

Using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques to create a solution-focused approach, I can help your child create a more positive outlook and give them practical skills to help them cope better with the emotional challenges they will come across, helping them form better, more productive relationships in the home or at school.

What is so great about NLP is that, unlike other psychological services it can effect long-term changes quickly and, in most cases in 4 – 8 sessions. NLP is particularly ideal for children and their developing minds as they will adopt new ways to prevent acute mental health crises and ongoing issues.

I offer a free consultation so you can ask any questions you have and so I can get to know you and your child to find out more about the challenges they are experiencing and make sure we can establish a productive, fun, therapeutic relationship. I can further explain some of the basic ideas of NLP and how it can help you. As a licenced NLP4kids and NLP4parents practitioner I can help children, but I can also offer sessions for parents with the aim of giving them some tools to use at home with your child to speed up their recovery.

My therapy space offers a great, flexible and therapeutic setting for you or your child.

Having spent 20 years as a children’s nurse I have lots of experience with working with children. I have also seen how much of a prevalent issue child and adolescent mental health is becoming. I am very aware of the desperate shortage of professional and therapeutic services and long waiting lists that are regularly exceeding 2 years.

I can empower your child to take charge of their emotions, they will become the best they can be, I will teach them how to enjoy life and give them tools to embrace the challenges it brings with confidence.

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]
