Hypnotherapy Scripts to Promote Children’s Wellbeing is a collection of tried-and-tested scripts that will aid hypnotherapists in developing and implementing treatment plans for promoting the wellbeing of children.
The book offers a variety of approaches solely focussed on children (aged 5 to 17 years), including: Ericksonian approaches utilising metaphors and story-telling; solution-focussed approaches; benefits approaches; parts therapy; Gestalt therapy and regression therapy. The scripts are intended to help deal with issues relevant to children such as lack of confidence; low self-esteem or self-worth; negative image; lack of motivation; anxiety (general, social and exam); learning and recalling information; fears; phobias; habits; sleep issues; bullying; abuse; bereavement and loss.
Serving as a unique resource of techniques and compiled from the author's years of personal experience, this book is beneficial for students, newly qualified and experienced hypnotherapists alike.
