(Although you would have a hard time telling my great Baba that that was what she while she was having 9 children, raising 9 children and running a farm…how on earth did she find time to bake bread and iron underwear.)

No longer is a pill always the fix, hypnotherapy for children and adolescents is another choice to explore to see if it is the right type of therapy for your family. The International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association defines hypnosis as “an education communication process to a person’s mind that allows his/her conscious and subconscious mind to receive the same message. The process produces an altered state of consciousness through mental and physical relaxation. The critical faculty of the mind is bypassed and the subconscious openly receives the communication”.
