We use a therapeutic technique called Pediatric Hypnosis to help children and adolescents deal with the anxiety and pain of medical procedures and chronic conditions. This method involves teaching children how to do deep relaxation, then helping them narrow their focus of concentration, utilizing all of their senses for the purpose of enhancing feelings of mastery and self-control. Pediatric hypnosis can help children and adolescents manage stress and problem solve. It can also be used for depression, separation anxiety, fears, sleep disorders, medical problems such as asthma, stomach aches, diabetes, and preparation for surgery. A psychotherapist who has been trained to utilize Pediatric Hypnosis can help your child or adolescent deal with these challenges successfully.
