OCD in Children
Can NLP and hypnosis help my child who has OCD? is a question Birmingham hypnotherapist and NLP master practitioner is asked often.
And the short answer is yes
Obsessive compulsive disorder responds well to intervention with NLP as neuro linguistic programming is like finding the owners manual which gives you tools and techniques which can change the OCD type thought patterns.
Birmingham NLP trainer Debbie Williams has a OCD hypnosis recording which you can download for only £19 and goes a long way to explain what may be going on in a child’s mind with the OCD thoughts and compulsions.
It also explains some of the ways Birmingham hypnotherapist works to help with this problem. A one to one session would involve even more varying techniques customised to the particular child.
With OCD in children, less intervention is better
Debbie personally believes psychology or psychiatry doesn’t really sort the OCD issue out satisfactorily. As a child Debbie was referred to both and has first hand experience.
Unless they have trained in NLP which is very much focused on solutions rather than understanding and looking for hidden causes which can take years.
And you still have the OCD problem, but now you know why.
Whilst helping Dr Richard Bandler ( co-founder of NLP) and Paul McKenna on over 50 NLP practitioner courses as well as teaching NLP for the adult ed and at Solihull college, Debbie has taught many psychologists and psychiatrists NLP techniques to help them with their clients.
Many are very open to NLP and others vehemently oppose it.
Birmingham NLP Trainer
Birmingham NLP trainer normally works with adults who have OCD and it can take 6-10 sessions spread over 12 months ( or more) to either eliminate OCD or reduce it so that its not a problem for them.
Most successful people have OCD type thinking strategies and it helps to motivate them to succeed. Debbie aims to switch the OCD type behaviour which is a problem onto a more useful and worthwhile goal.
The problem is when the OCD is focused on a negative ‘thing’ it becomes an issue as they are also extremely motivated and obsessed with it.
Working with children with OCD Debbie insists that one parent ( or both) are there in the NLP and hypnosis sessions. Normally 2-3 sessions are taken then a break to see if it is enough to steer the child into a better way of thinking.
When parents are present in an NLP and hypnosis session they will be able to pick up and continue the suggestions from the session back at home afterwards.
OCD in children; Helping the parents
With OCD in children having the parent come on their own to discuss how to help their child rather than bringing the child to see Birmingham hypnotist can also be very effective as Debbie can teach the parent some strategies they can use with their child.
