Introduction to Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy for Children DVD
Hello everybody, Cal Bayan here, professional hypnotist and hypnotherapist. I want to talk to you about something very special. Have you ever considered working with children? You know, if you're the kind of person that, you know, likes working with kids, then you really ought to consider bringing that kind of work into your practice. Let me tell you why.
One, it's the right thing to do. If you're the kind of person that likes to work with kids and you have that kind of ability to connect with children, why not help people when they're five, ten years old, rather than when they're 25 or 50 years old? Help them get over those problems. It's the right thing to do. Another good reason to work with kids is kids are easy. I mean there you are you're doing the right thing. You're working with a very easy population.
Now, the third reason is there's always money for kids. Sometimes potential clients won't spend the money on themselves, but they will spend their money on the children to get them the kind of help they need. And if the parents can't, then maybe, there's an uncle or grandmother, grandfather, someone in the family who's willing to pitch in. So one, it's the right thing to do.
Number two, it's an easy population to work with and three, the funds are usually available for that kind of work. Now a while back, we used to have someone at our center. Her name was Kathleen Skotte-Meyer. At the time she had a Masters degree and she had years of experience working with kids but in the usual talk therapy model. She came to our center, became certified in hypnotherapy and then eventually she went through our internship and then she became a regular on staff hypnotherapist. And she had all this background with working with children and the interest. And so she eventually became our expert in doing hypnosis and hypnotherapy with children. And we just routinely sent all of our child clients over to her. She just did an astounding job. She loved the work she was doing.
Then one day her husband got marching orders. He got a job in Canada as a professor at a university up there and she had to leave. We were all sad because we all loved Kathleen. She's a great person. But I was really concerned that this expertise that she had built up at our center was going to leave and I said Kathleen before you leave our center, you're going to do a workshop on how to work with kids. And that's how this DVD came about. And it's Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy for Children. And what you're going to find is this is a great place to start. There's not all that much information available for working with kids anyway. But, let me just read a little of this bulleted list on what you're going to learn with this DVD program.
She's going to teach you: one, to get a doctor's referral to work with children; how to prepare children for hypnosis; how to induce hypnosis in children. There's some special techniques that work especially well for kids. How to give children hypnotic suggestions. How to use 5-PATH® with children. Now, this is not a course on 5-PATH®. If you are a 5-PATH® hypnotist, then she's going to make some comments on how to integrate 5-PATH® and working with kids. What parents need to know to make hypnotherapy work. What scripts to use for specific issues, like bedwetting for example. Using post hypnotic suggestions with children. Letting children communicate through pictures. And the number of sessions and how long they should be, all special considerations. So there you go. I'm going to highly recommend you add this to your skill set if you enjoy working with kids, add it to your library. You're going to be glad you did. Once again, this is Cal Banyan signing off.
