"I consulted Andrew for weight loss. He helped me to strengthen my willpower to eat more healthily and only to eat when I was actually hungry rather than snacking unnecessarily. I have lost 3kg in 3 weeks."

Testimonial: Hypnosis for Children - Night Terrors & Sleep Issues

Hi Andrew.  

How are you? I hope life is great in Welly and you are well!  A quick update for you on Harry's sleeping journey. 

We've now been in Motueka, Tasman for 2.5 months now and absolutely LOVING IT!

Harry has settled in to life down here extremely easily. He's loving his new school and life and from the very first night we moved in to the cottage, he has slept in his own bed. We bought him a bigger bed, which, coupled with the work you and Harry did together, seems to have transformed his life. There have only been a handful of nights where he has come in to our room having been woken by heavy rain or other "unfamiliar" sounds. Other than that, he goes to bed without a hitch, sleeps like a baby and tells me he has really good sleeps.
We all are so happy and it's a fantastic result - so thanks again, for your support and professional guidance.

Take care

Steph Fry

Testimonial: Hypnosis for Children - Self-Control

A few weeks ago I took my then 4 year old son to see Andrew as, after researching what Hypnotherapy can achieve for people, I hoped that Andrew would be able to help Dominic realise that he can calm down quickly when things don't go his way. Dominic was an easy baby, but when he turned 18 months old he entered into the so-called "terrible twos" phase. He quickly became prone to long and violent fits of rage when he didn't get his own way. This is normal enough, but what I found frustrating was that Dominic wasn't able to get hold of his emotions once he'd dropped them. Worse was that this behaviour looked set to stay, and as Dom approached 5 years old I felt that I had to do something more constructive to address the situation than simply sending Dominic into time out.

Andrew hypnotised him while I was there, and used a series of metaphors to explain to Dominic's subconscious that he did have the ability to control himself more, and that he'd even benefit from doing so, by having a more comfortable and fun life. Almost immediately after the session I could see that he was a more calm and relaxed little boy.

This has continued - While Dominic does still have normal tantrums (he's a child after all), what is fantastic for him is that he is able to recover from them far more quickly than before. This has had an enormously positive effect on the whole family. We all of us enjoy life more.

Thanks Andrew.

Hypnosis for Children - Sleep Issues

We brought Hannah to Andrew because she was having trouble staying asleep and had developed a fear of being in her bedroom alone, this had escalated over time and was affecting not only Hannah's sleep but the whole families. I felt totally comfortable leaving Hannah in Andrew's care and she thoroughly enjoyed her sessions with him. After 3 sessions she was able to go to bed without hysterics and sleep through the night, if she did wake up she was able to go back to sleep. I wouldn't hesitate in putting her through more hypnotherapy if any further issues come up.

Daughter, Hannah (Age 10yrs) also said:

I close my eyes and hear Andrew gently talk to me. I feel like I'm awake but I'm so relaxed and tired that I could dose forever. It's weird my brain is talking for me and I don't do anything. The next thing I know Andrew is waking me up and I feel really relaxed and refreshed. Now I go off to bed without being scared and can sleep the whole night without waking up, I even sometimes turned off my light.

How I work with you and your child

As a father I know that it is very important for parents to feel confident in any therapist giving treatment to your child, so as a therapist I have developed fun ways to introduce and induce hypnosis in the children I have seen and worked with.

Firstly, I never work with children unless I have obtained written consent from their parents or legal guardian, so I have a parental consent form for you sign at session 1.  But even then, I won't ask you to sign it until after you have had a chance to ask me your questions, either on the phone or face to face.  After that I invite you to sit in on the pre-hypnosis part of the session.

When it comes to the hypnotherapy part of the session however, it will be my decision as to whether a parent can remain in the room or not whilst a child is hypnotised. This is because sometimes what children bring up may or may not relate to a parent or sibling, and so the presence of a family member in the room may not be conducive to therapy
