Take the recording into hospital too for extra calm and relaxation

A self help hypnotherapy recording for children aged about 8-15 years who are going to undergo an operation or medical procedure in hospital or a medical centre. It is relaxing and reassuring and helps them feel more calm and confident both leading up to and during their hospital visit. Encourage them to listen to the recording, preferably daily, for about three weeks beforehand and it would be useful to take with them into the hospital too.

Play the recording at bedtime

They can relax and drift off to sleep at the end. If you find that they fall asleep more or less immediately, let them listen at a quiet time earlier on before bedtime instead, or as well as, when they go to bed. 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.

Imaginative framework

Children relax calmly and deeply and enjoy breathing out any worries or concerns and breathing in calm and confidence instead. They are reassured about simple hospital routines and procedures. These routines are more or less common to all countries and have been scripted in consultation with a paediatric consultant. They receive powerful suggestions for being calm and relaxed and at ease throughout their stay and then visualize themselves feeling perfectly safe and relaxed. They feel so relaxed and at ease that they can find themselves, for example, smiling at the funny hats the doctors wear in the anaesthetic room. They also see themselves resting and sleeping easily, quite happy and confident as they recover really well, whether in a ward, private room or back home again.

Successful approach

This kind of approach is completely natural and safe. Research shows that when a person 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 the interests of this particular age group. NB Some children may seem more or less mature than their chronological age.
