How it works

Feeling anxious, nervous and stressed is part of the normal range of emotions, just like feeling angry or sad. For many children & teenagers, anxiety doesn’t last and often stabilises as the child develops and grows into a healthy adult. But for some children and teens, it doesn’t go away or is so extreme that it stops them from doing daily activities.

Events like starting a new high school or a new school year can become overwhelming for adolescents or teenagers. When day to day activities become difficult, you need to seek help.

The Norwest Wellbeing anxiety program for children and teenagers is a one-hour face to face session specifically designed for children and teenagers. We explain why they feel the way they are and why they act the way they do. When we understand our behaviours and patterns, change is not only possible.

It becomes easy, the long term way to think, act and behave. With simple tools and a sound understanding, your child or teenager will leave confident, relaxed and confident to face the challenges of growing up.


During the session

The face to face session includes a strategic approach that is age-appropriate, followed by a clinical hypnotherapy session. The session begins with an informal chat so we can get to know each other a little better. We then move onto techniques and teach you and your child methods to manage and reduce anxiety and stress. We then progress to a hypnotherapy session to lock in the changes and let the child experience a completely calm and relaxed state during hypnosis.

Psychotherapist & Clinical Hypnotherapist

Hi, I’m Paul, and I’ll be the clinical hypnotherapist running your child or teenagers session. I treat anxiety and self-esteem issues in children and teenagers daily and as a father of six children and seven grandchildren myself. I know and understand what it’s like when children experience anxiety, self-esteem and body image issues, especially during their teenage years.

What’s important is that you are taking steps to support your child to live a happy and satisfying life managing their anxiety and stress. Without these tools and techniques I teach in these sessions, the pressure may increase, and anxiety becomes a lifelong issue for them as they grow into young adults.

I’m available to answer any questions you have in the session, or if you have any other issues you would like to discuss beforehand, please give our team a call, and we can help you further.

I look forward to helping you and your family at our Norwest practice.
