Hypnosis for Youth Mental Health


Hypnotherapy for Youth Mental Health has gained enormous momentum over the last number of years and particularly the past year. For good reason.

In a world that seems to be changing at an ever faster pace, meeting the base needs of our young people is becoming more and more difficult by the day.  Unfortunately providing many of these needs are not within the control of the loving parents who often end up in despair due to circumstances beyond their control.   

What are the basic needs that compose a positive foundation? 

Feeling safe, accepted, valued, loved, appreciated and confident are the foundation blocks upon which young people thrive.  It nourishes a sense of optimism, enthusiasm, self-worth and ignites that natural sense of curiosity and motivation.  It is the bedrock of the ability to form healthy relationships with both others, themselves and the world around them.   

As resilient and adaptable as young people are, when this foundation is shaken or undermined, it is only a matter of time before their mental and emotional health begins to suffer. 

Some of the significant challenges the youth of today are facing  

When we stop for a minute and consider the challenges young people are confronted with it becomes easy to understand why the numbers of adolescents in mental and emotional trouble have skyrocketed. 

Stress factors our young people are facing have multiplied year upon year. At the same time mechanism of legitimately dealing with and releasing those stresses in an empowered manner have diminished.

Bullying – Social Isolation – Unachievable “Role Model” Influences – Social Media Pressure – Online Abuse – Educational Pressures – Comparison Culture – Personal Traumatic Experiences – Grief – Uncertainty for the Future, the list goes on and on. 

Take your pick and then throw hormones into that mixture and right there is the perfect storm we are witnessing which creates extreme distress for adolescents and youngsters.   Even the most loving parents often don’t stand a chance to counter act all this by themselves.

Why is Hypnosis so popular in Youth Mental Health Care now?

Simple, hypnosis offers something to young people other therapies can’t.

Many young people do not want to expose their inner most thoughts and feelings to what is essentially a stranger. Be it their GP, a Councillor or School Guidance Personnel.  Having to lay bare their difficulties under such circumstances may in fact have quite the opposite effect of what the desired outcome would be. 

What they really want is the bad thoughts, feelings and emotions to go away, it really is as simple as that.  

At Advance Hypnosis we do not rely on picking the problem apart in minute detail to find resolution through conscious efforts or coping mechanisms.

Instead through highly specialised hypnosis techniques we provoke the power of the subconscious mind into action to restart powerful, positive emotional states, which are then used to displace and then resolve those unwanted negative states and thought patterns. 

Believe it or not, we are all naturally born optimists and our subconscious mind holds an enormous library of positive experiences that made us feel good.   

It is not necessary for someone to open up and reveal details if they do not wish to do so.

At Advance Hypnosis we offer every client the option of using what we call Content Free Hypnosis and Emotional Blow Out Therapy.  

This is what our younger clients find so very acceptable. 

Our willingness to meet them on their terms, acknowledging and respecting their personal integrity whilst offering that much needed relief and healing without prejudice.   

We truly believe our Children are our future. It is up to us to provide every support along the way to let them grow into happy, healthy adults.
