School days are not always the best days of our lives.
Mental health difficulties for children and teenagers are more common now than ever before. But help with stress, anxiety and depression at an early age can have hugely beneficial effects for the rest of a child's life, giving them the ability to move into adulthood with calm confidence and self-belief.
We are lucky to have Nicola Lemon, a teacher and Solution Focused Hypnotherapist working as part of the Green Tree taem. She is always happy to chat about how she works. Children and young people often respond extremely well to hypnotherapy. Their open minds and natural curiosity are assets not to be underestimated. Similarly Solution Focused Brief Therapy, offered by Alex Ashida and Matt Selman works great with all ages, and often children/teenagers find it's approach easier than traditional counselling techniques.
Parents are welcome to attend for all initial consultation appointments. After that, older teenagers often prefer, and benefit from, having their own sessions. Younger children are welcome to bring a nice, well-behaved adult with them!
The initial consultation is always on a no fee, no obligation basis. It gives you and your child chance to explain what you both would like to achieve, and I can discuss with you and your child how hypnotherapy can help. It might just be the best after school activity you’ll ever go to!
