This charitable organisation has been assisting people with anxiety-related issues for the past fifty years. Being part of Anxiety UK means that I can provide hypnotherapy, either face-to-face or online to those who may not otherwise be able to afford it.
Hypnotherapy In Schools Programme
As a registered HISP practitioner, I am able to offer treatment to individual and groups of children within their school setting. Because schools buy into the programme, it means that people who might not otherwise be able to access hypnotherapy can benefit from this treatment.
The Hypnotherapy in Schools Programme (HISP) uses clinical hypnotherapy to help school pupils with the various issues that can negatively impact their learning, emotional health and/or their general wellbeing. The programme offers individual and group packages and can help with many of the issues that affect children as well as school-based issues such as exam anxiety, concentration, bullying / peer pressure, speaking out in class, fear of making mistakes and subject specific anxiety.
I can also offer support to staff employed in any role within school, again on an individual and group basis.
In order to access HISP, pupils’ cognitive and language abilities need to be of at least five years and, as with all children’s hypnotherapy they need to want to change something about their behaviour, thinking or feelings. A willingness to engage in the sessions is essential.
HISP sessions generally last between thirty and forty-five minutes and are conducted weekly for approximately six weeks. They are delivered within school during school hours. A supportive recording is provided with all interventions.
