Hypnotherapy – Therapy for Children & Teenagers
Help your child overcome their difficulties.
We have been working with children and young adults who are having problems – struggling with anxiety, bullying, fears, phobias, body dis-morphia, confidence, alcohol or drug problems, self-harm or behavioural problems since September 2007
If you are concerned about your child being worried, troubled or upset, that your child is not as happy as he/she usually is or if your child suffers from any of the problems listed below , please contact us.
It’s getting harder to have a happy childhood a report by Action for Children released in July 2019 says. Stating that bullying, GCSE exam pressure and social media is having a negative impact on childhood in the UK. As a Hypnotherapist and Mindfulness Therapist I have noticed a huge increase in the number of children and young adults aged between 8 and 18 that I work with.
Children these days are under so much pressure from parents, society, social media, bullies and trolls, to be perfect, pretty, smart and popular, to pass all their exams and to get a high paid job. They are also under a huge amount of peer pressure to smoke, drink, use drugs, act out and have sex. It is no surprise that many use the latter to escape the former.
We work with children and young adults to manage and resolve depression, anxiety be it social anxiety, exam anxiety, peer pressure or specific or general anxiety, who self-harm and cut, are struggling with school or anything else.
We work with children and young adults with issues of:
- Thumb sucking
- Bed wetting
- Panic attacks
- Lack of concentration
- Confidence and Self-esteem
- Alcohol and Drug use
- Self-harm – Cutting
- Behavioral problems at home or school
- Test and exam nerves
- Sleeping difficulties
- Lack of confidence
- Fear of the dentist
- Relationship problems
- Unable to make friends
- Other fears and phobia
- Nail biting
Hypnotherapy has proved to be very effective in treating a wide range of children’s problems / issues. Children make wonderful subjects for hypnosis as they are so open to new experiences. They tend to find the experience most enjoyable.

“Well what can I say! What a kind, understanding and compassionate man. I took my son to see Adrian as he had no confidence in himself. He was very negative and couldn’t see the positives in anything, he just didn’t believe in himself. My son is a fantastic Triathlete but his negative feelings towards himself… was holding him back. He felt his ‘bad nerves’ before an event ment that he was ‘rubbish’ and ‘crap’ and ‘no good’! Well none of this was true but no-one could get through to him. By the time the event had started he would’av talked himself into believing he was going to fail, it was heartbreaking. We had our 1st session with Adrian. As my son is 15 I had to stay with him throughout the session. He spoke to us both, he had lots of empathy with my son and spoke to him like and adult and not a child. He listened to what he had to say and was interested in how he felt. We felt relaxed and Adrian was very easy to talk to, he made us feel at ease. My son came out of his 1st session feeling relaxed and calm, I had not seen him like this in a long time. We had our 2 session’s before he had his next Triathlon. And…. O. M.G what a difference, NO negativity, No telling me he was ‘rubbish’and ‘no good’! He told me he had bad nerves but agreed with me that they were a good thing, something he had never said before. He entered the event in such a good place that he came 6th and smashed his time by 13 minutes. What a proud Mum and Dad. We had 4 sessions in all. Asking my son how he feels now he tells me he feels ‘different’ feels better and more positive, and it shows. He has been better in everything that he does, in his training and his school life too. He’s joined a Tri club, something he couldn’t do before because of his lack of confidence, also he has been made U16 captain for his Korfball team which is his other passion. We will definitely be going back to have some more sessions with Adrian, especially as he is now in year 11 and we have GCSE’s coming up. My son enjoyed his sessions and is looking forward to going back. As a Mum I am so greatful to Adrian for what he has done for my son, I just wish I had done it sooner. Thankyou Adrian you are an absolute star! Lynn from Sutton” Read more “Lynn, Son’s Sports Performance, Confidence”
“I asked Joel to help my son who was struggling with extreme anxiety, self doubt and depression during his final year at school. He had received little support from his GP and by the time I found Joel his attendance was below 70% and the exams were looming. I had some personal experience of Mindfulness… Meditation and also hypnotherapy and did some research into Mindfulness Based Stress Relief and Cognitive Therapy in the treatment of depression. Convinced by the evidence I found Joel and booked him in. After several appointments, and using the tools Joel provided my son was able to focus fully again on his studies and grew and grew in confidence, finally able to sit his exams. Thank you Joel for restoring my son back to health and for giving him the tools to face up to and withstand whatever life throws at him in the future.” (Five Stars) Read more “Sue B, Exam Anxiety”
“My son, who’s 12, went to see Adrian to try to stop biting his finger nails. Since his visit 14 days ago he has, unbelievably, not bitten his nails once! A fantastic hypnotist.” (Five Star)
“Joel was recommended by a friend whose son had seen him for anxiety issues. My 13 year old daughter had been feeling anxious at school following friendship group issues. She had a number of sessions with Joel which incorporated hypnotherapy, relaxation techniques and CBT. She is now happy and coping well with whatever is thrown… at her. Many thanks Joel.” (Five Stars) Read more “Surrey, Children’s Therapy”
I noticed a huge improvement in my ten year old daughter after just one session. She stopped wetting the bed, and seemed more relaxed socially. Adrian was very gentle and positive with her and respected my views as a parent-i would recommend people try his service themselves, it works. (Five Stars) *
