Your child will explore their identity by linking thoughts, feelings and behaviours with current stress and anxieties, past traumas and imagined and real scenarios and learn coping, negotiating and assertiveness strategies to better manage their responses to stressful situations. Hypnotherapy sessions boost relaxation and self worth and reinforce key messages learned in the therapy
Many children experience performance anxiety linked to school, tests and exams, homework, sport, extra curricular activities or performing in front of groups of people. Therapy sessions will help them to overcome these obstacles and be more confident and self assured
Social Anxiety and Self Esteem
Children are taught how to identify their social anxiety, and their triggers, responses to stress, and behaviours. They will develop new strategies to better manage their anxiety and open up opportunities to live happier, more fulfilling lives while growing healthy self esteem and healthy relationships
Issues such as enuresis (bedwetting); withholding (not being able to use the toilet) excessive fears and phobias, some repetitive behaviours like skin picking and hair pulling, and non medical IBS are symptoms of anxiety and stress and can be reduced and even eradicated completely with Hypnotherapy and CBT.
Case Study A IDENTITY
Dan is 14. He has ADHD and is Autistic and had a very difficult time at school prior to being diagnosed. He suffers from PTSD as a result and has avoided school and socialising for over a year, displayed aggressive and self harming behaviours, suicidal thoughts and destructive outbursts and often feels guilty and ashamed afterwards. He struggles to understand why he is autistic. Parents opted for the annual membership Ed Elf Club.
“Evalynne has built a wonderful relationship with our son. He hasn’t been able to talk to other adults. We were really struggling, but for months now we’ve had no violent outbursts, no self harm, no suicidal thoughts and we are now working on a return to school plan. The therapy has been amazing and Evalynne has also co-ordinated a multi agency team around our child between health and school professionals, and us. That has been very helpful”
Case Study B SOCIAL ANXIETY and SELF ESTEEM
Emily is 12. She is in long term foster care with a wonderful family, and has Attachment Disorder and mild learning difficulties. Due to her traumatic early years, Emily finds it difficult to behave appropriately with her peers, to build healthy relationships with both adults and children and suffers from very low self esteem. She can over compensate by being controlling and has a low threshold for emotional regulation
Head of Pastoral and Behaviour says:
“We are so pleased with Emily’s progress since having therapy sessions with Evalynne. She had a block of ten which helped her to adapt to the new school environment, make friends, and establish healthier boundaries. She has also learned how to know when she feels ‘less safe’ and use safety strategies. We will definitely call on her again as Emily progresses into her teenage years as this is where her Attachment issues will most likely resurface, when she is navigating puberty and friendship issues”
