Children’s Hypnosis Training

Child at sunsetWelcome to KidsMatters! This online training course in children’s hypnotherapy provides hypnotherapists and counsellors with the skills they need to work with children’s powerful creative imaginations, using a state of hypnosis. Children are constantly engaged in an imaginative flow, and hypnotherapy has an excellent track record in helping children access their inner resources and to come up with personally meaningful solutions which are enhanced by positive suggestion. There is a huge, and growing, demand for children’s hypnotherapy – but many therapists lack the skills and training to work effectively with children. As a KidsMatters therapist, you will join a growing body of therapists who have undertaken this officially trademarked course.

If you are a qualified hypnotherapist, you will find that children respond very differently to hypnotherapy than adults, and you may struggle to achieve excellent results with your existing skill set. KidsMatters not only covers the ethics and legal requirements of working with children – and their parents – but also teaches you how to engage with them effectively, using a range of hypnotic techniques specifically designed for younger clients.

BalloonsIf you are a counsellor, KidsMatters will teach you how to use hypnotic approaches, including inductions which are designed for children, metaphors, story-telling and positive suggestion which will deepen and enhance your existing practice.

Claire Jack, Ph.D., brings her strong academic skills to review existing research and create a necessary bridge between the excellent work of psychiatrists and doctors who routinely use hypnotherapy with child clients and hypnotherapists and counsellors who wish to work with children in this way.
