Hypnotherapy for Children (Paediatric Hypnotherapy)

On completion of the workshop graduates will receive either a CPD Certificate or a Level 4 Hypnotherapy for Children certificate.

The Level 4 certificate is based on these hours plus your original hypnotherapy course. Evidence of your accredited original course must be provided to gain the Level 4 Certificate. Also the Level 4 certificate has some additional home study work that will need to be completed.

This used to be a 1 day workshop but has expanded and is now a 2 days course.

The market for helping children by the use of hypnotherapy is huge. This area is almost untapped by therapists. Children means under 16 years of age.

Hypnotherapy for children workshopThe Hypnotherapy for Children course is a comprehensive Master Class for experienced hypnotherapists. Legal and ethical issues are not covered in detail. We is recommend some private research into this area. We spend our time on protocols for dealing with many different presenting issues.

Children usually respond well to hypnotherapy. Mainly because they are far more open minded than adults. And their imagination can work with the technique better as well. Children are more able ‘change their mind’ than most adults.

Many parents have become frustrated by the long wait for ‘NHS’ counselling or psychotherapy. These long waiting times for sessions make this option nonviable. But; these long waiting lists prove just how much potential work there is available.

More parents are seeking fast help elsewhere – hypnotherapy. This Hypnotherapy for Children workshop will allow you into this ever growing niche area.

Parents will drive miles to find a qualified paediatric hypnotherapist. It is normal for there to be no one local. Become that local one – sign up for the Hypnotherapy for Children course today.
