Children and Teens

Metro Denver Hypnotherapy

  • Relieve anxiety: Anxiety may be associated with musical and sports performance, test-taking, social situations, or public speaking. Anxiety may also be associated with medical or dental appointments. Anxiety may lead to symptoms that can be relieved with hypnosis such as nail biting, hair pulling, skin picking, etc.
  • Relieve fears: Children and teens are often affected greatly by fear. Fears may include monsters, clowns, strangers, the dark, the bathroom, needles, nightmares, water, etc.
  • Relieve symptoms of medical issues: These may include but are not limited to stuttering, healthy habits, sports injuries, menstrual cramps, asthma, skin problems, bed-wetting; surgery, and relief of pain. (I will work with your child’s pediatrician or specialist to be sure we are integrating care and serving the best interest of the child.)
  • Let go: Children and teens have memories and occasional irrational thoughts that often continue to affect their self-esteem, school performance, ability to make friends, connections with teachers, or the ability to play sports or enjoy other activities. I can help them let go or simply see the experience from a different perspective to find relief.
  • Transitions: Children and teens may benefit from hypnotherapy to transition to having a new sibling, their own room; manage a divorce, introduction of a step-parent, or a death of a family member or pet; or transition to a new home or school.

"Daria helped two of my kids (8 and 10 years old) with some pretty tough social issues that they were having at school. Both my kids really loved her kindness and empathy and she was a pleasure to work with! We would definitely recommend her." - K.E.

"Connecting with children and teens is a natural skill I have. I put them at ease almost immediately as we meet, get to know each other, and have them relax to use hypnosis to help with behavior issues, breaking bad habits, developing friendships, having confidence academically and socially, and relieving anxiety."

- Daria Mann

Children and Teens love hypnotherapy because they are in control of changing their thoughts and behaviors. I work with them to understand the power of their own mind to serve them in ways they know best. Hypnosis is fun and most children and teens love using their imagination and usually go into trance very easily. Often parents will notice changes immediately and to the child or teen it may not seem like anything has changed. Teens enjoy the relaxation, the ease, and the reduced stress of hypnotherapy in comparison to regular talk therapy.

A session with a child or teen will include paperwork and intake with a parent present to determine what the issue is as well as determine if the child or teen wants to change. Parents have sometimes asked if I can “make” them do something, but it is important to know the child or teen is in control and without their permission to make changes, suggestions will not be accepted to resolve the issue. The child can sit wherever he/she is comfortable, many like my big recliner chair, but some prefer sitting on the rug or on a pillow during intake. Usually, hypnosis works best with the parent in the waiting room during hypnosis. However if a child (or parent) is uncomfortable, I will allow the parent to stay. To the observing parent, hypnosis may seem like storytelling, or they may not understand a technique that may be used such as metaphorical language, or the use of silence to allow the child or teen to use their imagination. Children tend to move more than adults while in trance which doesn’t interfere with the work, but may seem a bit odd to parents. I make suggestions that are positive and with the benefits in mind.
