Anxiety and Panic Attacks in Children

Unfortunately, children can feel traumatised after suffering a panic attack or anxiety.  This maybe because they don’t understand their symptoms. And they may be convinced they are going to be sick. As a consequence, they can become obsessed with this.  They may even deny having any worries or fears.  Common problems include social, emetophobia, and separation anxiety.

Hypnotherapy and EMDR aim to lessen anxiety levels and increase confidence.   Consequently helping the mind to think in a more positive way.    Sessions include coping strategies and techniques, including mindfulness.

Teens and children can feel awkward talking in sessions.  There is no pressure to do this.


Cognitive behavioral therapy is carried out in hypnosis.  This then enables then child can challenge negative thoughts automatically.
