Teen Hypnotherapy

What challenges trigger the need for teen hypnotherapy?

Adolescence is a time of overwhelming internal and external challenges. Teens must cope with hormonal changes, peer pressure, school demands, and the need to be accepted. At the same time, they’re driven to become independent from their parents.

These challenges have always existed, but teens today face additional pressures. They feel pressured to stay active on social media, where they deal with the stress of who likes or follows them, negative comments about them, and more. The toll on their self-esteem is tremendous.

Many teens also struggle with mental health disorders. Major depression affects 13% of adolescents, but anxiety represents a bigger challenge. In 2017, nearly one-third of all teens struggled with anxiety, and for at least 8% of them, the problem was severe.

What type of problem does teen hypnotherapy treat?

Hypnotherapy’s ability to help teens alter their emotions, behavior, and even their physical health makes it a treatment option that’s effective for dealing with many of the most common problems teens face today.

Teens often choose hypnotherapy to help with issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger
  • Stress
  • Bullying
  • Body image
  • Sleep problems (insomnia)
  • Fear
  • Overweight
  • Self-esteem
  • Lack of confidence
  • Gay men’s issues
  • Sexual harassment
  • Sports enhancement
  • Cyber addiction

Loretta uses teen hypnotherapy to improve their focus and concentration so they can take exams without fear. Hypnotherapy also helps with conditions such as ADHD, PTSD, and phobias.

How does hypnotherapy help teens?

When your teen has hypnotherapy, their body relaxes and their conscious mind becomes less alert, while their subconscious mind becomes deeply focused. 

In this state, they can access the subconscious reasons behind their behaviors and feelings. Then they can consciously choose to change.

During hypnosis, teens stay aware and in control, but their perception changes and they become responsive to suggestions. 

Loretta may suggest specific techniques to relieve anxiety, eliminate fears, remove thoughts that trigger panic attacks, or change eating habits, to give you a few examples.

Loretta may also use teen hypnotherapy together with emotional core relief therapy to relieve anxiety, or age-regression therapy, which lets them revisit the time and place where a current problem originally started.

If your teen needs help in their social, personal, school, or family life, call Loretta Holt Hypnotherapy or schedule a free consultation online.
