About Evalynne Charmer Dip. Hyp (Paediatrics)
Hi! Welcome to Ed Elf – I’m Evalynne founder and Director. I set up Ed Elf in response to a huge gap in accessible therapy for neurodiverse and neurotypical children and young adults – therapy which is strengths-based, fun, visual and interactive, and transformational. I have lived experience both personally (I have Aspergers Syndrome) and professionally having been an Assistant Head in a special needs school (Head of Boarding, H&S, Compliance and Designated Safeguarding Lead). Although based in East Riding of Yorkshire I work nationally via Zoom which works brilliantly for Neurodivergent young people.
I have a passion for working with children and families, and have made it my focus for over 37 years (in 2021) and been a hypnotherapist since 2004. I have developed the CONGRENT ME method, Hypnotherapy combined with talking therapies, in 1:1 sessions and workshops (see Ed Elf Club) to help children overcome some of life’s challenges and grow in confidence, self worth and being able to take control of thoughts, feelings and behaviours that are just, well, unhelpful for them.
I train other qualified Hypnotherapists to work with children and young adults of all neurotypes, so the CONGRUENT ME method is shared and accessed by as many young people as possible as I believe it to be THE BEST. https://www.childhypnotherapyinstitute.com
