Making a difference to young people’s mental health

Young people nowadays face a lot of challenges as they navigate their way through adolescence. From academic pressure to social anxiety, especially as a result of lockdown, they are often under a lot of stress which can sadly take its toll on their mental health. Fortunately, hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool for helping them manage their stress and improve their overall well-being.

Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help them to focus on the positive aspects of their life and identify achievable goals. By encouraging them to focus on their strengths and what they want to achieve, it can help them make positive changes in their life and develop resilience in the face of challenges.

I recently had the pleasure of working with a young person who was struggling with anxiety, especially at school. Together, we worked to identify her strengths, develop achievable goals and strategies which helped her gain confidence, build resilience and overcome anxiety.

Her Mum said: “My daughter started seeing Kay soon after starting secondary school. Kay put her at her ease straight away and within a few sessions I could see my daughter’s confidence growing. She learned techniques to be able to deal with her fears and stressful situations and was able to use them effectively. She looked forward to her sessions and always came out happy and relaxed.”

One of the great things about Solution Focused Hypnotherapy is that instead of focusing on the problem, we focus on how the client wants their life to be and on developing small steps towards that preferred future. Whether they are struggling with academic pressure, social anxiety, or any other issue, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can help them identify their strengths and develop the skills and confidence they need to overcome their challenges.
