The main question for many parents now is whether hypnosis is safe for children or not?
That is matched with a resounding “Yes!”. Hypnosis has been used on children when leaning, watching television or doing something creative. In fact, one clinical psychologist said that hypnosis can help resolve common children issues such as pain, anxiety, bed wetting and asthma.
When hypnosis is done on a child, a certified child therapist will have to ask permission from the parents, explaining to them how hypnosis works and why they think it will be helpful for their children. It is very important that parents know what is going on.
During hypnosis, some children will be able to go into a deep, relaxing trance with eyes closed while some will stay awake in a state of trance in which the therapist might use metaphors or stories with hidden suggestions that will be understood by the unconscious mind. A qualified hypnotherapist will be able to notice the seemingly unnoticeable change in a child’s levels of awareness so that they will be able to give suggestions for improvement.
Contrary to what some believe, a child will never be out of control or lapsed into a coma-like state. They will still be conscious in the background so that anything that is said that is off alignment or if any emergencies arise, they will be fully aware to wake up to normal state.
So, hypnotism is not bad for children. It is a good technique that can be used on children. The most important thing here is to find the right child therapist who will administer the hypnotherapy.
