Remember, regular listening is the key to success!
This is a self-help gentle hypnotherapy recording for
young children approximately 5-9 years who suffer
from either vocal or motor tics, or both. Gentle &
relaxing, it helps them release a build-up of
tension and feel calmer and may help them feel more in
control of sounds and movements. Tics vary in
severity; transient tics in young people very often
disappear quickly and easily with use of the recording,
while long standing- chronic tics may take longer or, in
some cases, not respond to the approach. Even in these
cases however there is usually an improvement in
feelings of a calm, relaxed and confident mind set.
Play the recording at bedtime
Bedtime listening allows deep relaxation and then
drifting off to sleep at the end. However, if falling
asleep happens more or less immediately, choose to
listen at a quiet time earlier on, before or as well as,
at bedtime. The recording should be in addition to,
rather than instead of, any usual bedtime rituals or
stories so that they don’t feel deprived in any way.
Children are encouraged to relax comfortably and
enjoy a daydream because their brains work best when
they are in a nice day-dreamy state. In order to
relax them and engage their imagination they are
first asked to imagine breathing in a nice happy
colour and imagine breathing out any
colours of worries or sad thoughts. They imagine
walking into a special control room and find a big
picture of themselves on a big screen like a big iPad /
computer / television. Using a remote control they
make the image move or make sounds and then learn how
to turn the sounds down and make the movements still.
It’s a way of getting mind and body to work in
harmony using imagery and visualization.
This kind of approach is completely natural and safe.
Research shows that when a child first acts out each
positive step in their imagination, it dramatically
increases the likelihood of their success in the real
world. This CD contains powerful suggestions for
boosting confidence and self-esteem. The
language and topics used are carefully crafted to
appeal to young children. NB Remember that some children
may seem more or less mature than their chronological
