Remember, regular listening is the key to success!
This is a self-help hypnotherapy recording for older
children, teenagers and adults who suffer from
either vocal or motor tics. Gentle & relaxing, it
helps them release a build-up of tension and feel
calmer and may help the listener 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 and relaxed 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. In the case of children, 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. Adults will choose to listen at the
most convenient time for them.
Listeners are encouraged to relax comfortably and
deeply and use their breathing to let go
of tension and breathe in a sense of calm. In a
relaxed day–dreamy state it is easier to engage the
power of the mind and get the mind and body to
work in harmony using imagery and visualization.
In this case the imagery takes the form of finding
the control centre in the mind and
adjusting or switching off unwanted sounds or movements.
They are then asked to visualize themselves in
their everyday life, calm and relaxed with
fewer or no disruptions from the tics. They
are encouraged to release any associated
tension or perhaps even choose to allow the tics
to occur at suitable times and places.
This kind of approach is completely natural and safe.
