For emotionally healthy & happy children

Find a Practitioner

We are Marcia & Julie and we created Hypno4Children™ as many of our Hypnotherapy students and graduates asked us where they could find specialist training for working with children. It made sense to us to create this consistent approach based on our many years of working with children. Our practitioners can build a fully bespoke therapy plan for children and teens based on their unique needs. All practitioners listed below are qualified Hypnotherapists, have taken the Hypno4Children™ training, passed our exam and can provide the skills and knowledge to help and support your child. Accredited practitioners in addition to passing our exam have also demonstrated their skills through submitting and passing case studies.

We encourage all our practitioners to hold an enhanced DBS certificate through their professional body, please check this with them individually.

Hi, I’m Julie co-founder of Hypno4Children™ and an enthusiastic champion for empowering our young people to feel secure within their own emotions. Its always a delight and a privilege to work with children, teens and young people to help them learn how our minds work and explore ways that they can safely feel all their emotions, as all emotions are valid, but also help them find ways to self sooth and be able to regulate their emotions when they are overwhelming or uncomfortable and causing undesirable behaviours. Children never cease to amaze me with their imagination, creativity and enthusiasm. I have worked with many children over the years, each individual with their own inner super power and it is incredibly joyful to see them learning new ways of thinking and being, setting the foundations for a healthy emotional life and good mental health. I am a qualified Hypnotherapist, NLP, TFT, IEMT Practitioner and offer an initial 15 free Discovery Call where we can talk through the requirements of your child. Please do get in touch if you’d like to have a chat.

Louise Beck HPD

Location: Ramsgate, Thanet, Kent

Phone: 01843482206

I am Louise, a trained hypnotherapist using a combined therapy approach to help children including TFT, NLP and mindfulness techniques within my practice. I am also a Certified Havening Techniques® Practitioner.

My passion is to give children a toolbox to be able to cope with everyday emotions, trauma, fears, and cope with the uncontrollable events that can be chucked into our pathway. This passion matches perfectly with the Hypno4Children™ programs!

I have two inspirational daughters who are 7 & 10. I have used many of the techniques with them, to help them to regulate emotions and to start to form their own toolbox. As a parent, I have experienced the pain of watching an ill child, a child who is so upset about attending nursery/school, a child who fears the dark, a child who has frustration from learning difficulties, just to name a few! I believe that children are our most valuable gift and giving them a mindfulness toolkit has become a real passion and is when I come alive!  Helping children to be able to cope with trauma however big or small it seems. For example, a death in the family, exam pressure, dealing with the school bully, and conquering themselves as their own worst critic!

One of my own hero’s is Milton Erickson, he explains that nearly all his patients would respond to stories and metaphors both under hypnosis or not, demonstrating the power of storytelling. This is a theory I have seen work with my own eyes for my children and others. I like to use stories within my practice, and I am very creative working with the child’s own amazing imagination! I offer a free discovery call and look forward to working with you.

Sarah Hedges

Location: South East

Hi, I’m Sarah, a clinical Hypnotherapist and Thought Field Therapy Practitioner. I enjoy supporting others through teaching them tools and techniques to help bring around positive change in so many different aspects of life.

As a mum of 3 children, I can see how things such as COVID-19, home-schooling, social media and gaming have impacted behaviour both of parents and the children and understand how challenging this can be to the entire family. I provide a supportive environment for you and your child to work through any issues or challenges that you are experiencing, I keep the focus on the client in terms of what will work and what pace we move at because it’s the client who matters.

The great thing about MINDHACK and StudyCalm is the flexibility to create individual solutions because one size doesn’t fit all and nor should it.

Danielle Killick

Location: Reading, Berkshire

Hello, I’m Danielle, a qualified teacher, hypnotherapist and Hypno4Children practitioner. I am also in my final year of a Level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic counselling practice. I have two children aged 11 and 12 years old, and I am so grateful for them teaching me what it’s like for young people to grow up in our world today. Their energy and zest for life is contagious!

I have worked in primary education for over 20 years and am highly motivated to help children and young people build their confidence, resilience and independence. We live in a fast-paced world and the demands on children and young people are increasing all the time. Maintaining our mental health and wellbeing are so important for everyone, now more than ever, and that’s where I can help.

My passion is helping people of all ages to use strategies and tools to make positive changes, and find the balance when life becomes overwhelming. This can be achieved through using the ‘MINDHACK’ and/or ‘STUDYCALM’ approaches, which encompasses a variety of skills and techniques that can be built into a personalised therapy plan for your child. This could include, learning about the ‘Brain House’ and understanding why we feel overwhelmed sometimes. The use of tapping and breathing techniques for relaxation and addressing those ‘wonky thoughts’. Building a wellbeing toolkit is a fun and creative activity that can be used every day in any situation. Hypnotherapy is a safe and relaxing therapy that can really enhance the positive changes we make together.

The key to this therapeutic work is ensuring the child or teen feels empowered. It’s crucial that they feel they are playing an important role in the therapy and that it’s not being ‘done’ to them. This is a collaborative approach that will help your child make some wonderful and positive changes in their life. I’m very much looking forward to meeting and working with you. Please get in touch if you would like to find out more.

Ashling Coxon

Location: Online, Harrogate, North Yorkshire

Phone: 07854 628 568

Hi my name is Ashling, I’m a qualified Solution Focused Clinical Hypnotherapist and Psychotherapist (DSFH, HPD (MNCH Reg) and a Hypno4children practitioner based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.

Connecting and working with children is my field of expertise. I help them to develop a positive mindset and build resilience to overcome life’s challenges. I use a combination of different therapeutic approaches such as Psychotherapy, Neuro Linguistic Programming, Tapping, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Positive Psychology / Coaching and Hypnosis.

I believe that the potential for positive change is the essential building block for creating the best possible future for us all. My work with young people is about discovering and growing this potential within them, as well as developing life skills and giving them the tools to help them thrive and overcome any emotional and physical concerns that have been holding them back from living their lives to their fullest.

My sessions are unique in their structure as I incorporate a future-focused, solution-based process which is positive, fun and tailored to my client’s age and individual needs. I use interactive and visual child friendly guides to explain the ‘MindHack’ system which gives them an understanding of how the brain and mind works, why they are feeling the way they are and what tools and techniques I can teach them to help them gain back control of their emotions, allowing them to break-free from self-limiting thoughts and behaviours and build a happy, stable future for themselves.

The Study Calm system can be stand alone or incorporated into sessions to teach young people techniques to boost their academic studies, test or exam performance.

I’m approachable and want the very best for my clients, I have worked with many children and young people who have blossomed into confident, happy, awe inspiring individuals, and I feel very proud to have watched these transformations.

I’d love to hear from you to discuss how I can help your child achieve their full potential.

Simone Polden HPD

Location: Margate, Kent and online

Phone: 07813 282322

Hello, my name is Simone and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist, Hypno4Children™ practitioner and Rapid Transformational Therapy™ practitioner. I am also a qualified teacher and mother of three.

Having worked with children for almost 20 years, I have the experience and ability to connect with them on their level in a fun and natural way. I appreciate the joy and wonder of childhood, but at the same time I am aware that children’s emotions can be very intense and they can feel stuck, scared or overwhelmed when dealing with life’s challenges or even when just functioning on a day-to-day basis.

It is my wish that every child knows how precious and wonderful they are but most importantly how powerful they are. My role is to help children realise that they already have all the power within them to solve problems, change their thought patterns and feel confident and happy. Using the Hypno4Children™ framework, I teach children how the mind works and why they feel, behave and think the way they do. I then equip them with a ‘toolbox’ of techniques that they can use whenever they need to. This is all carried out in a relaxed and fun way using stories and images to connect with the child’s imagination and subconscious mind.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool for bringing about positive change and can address a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, exam nerves, bedwetting, fears, low confidence to name a few.

Please contact me for a free chat to see how I can help you and your child. I’d love to hear from you.

Gerry Budworth

Location: Norfolk and online

Phone: 07586 428 869 / 07907022735

Hi, my name is Gerry and I am a Clinical Hypnotherapist and Hypno4Children Practitioner based in Norfolk on the coast. I am also CBT trained and previously Nurture based. I am also a Thrive practitioner and lead Family Thrive sessions for a special needs nursery locally.

I recently retired from a pastoral role in school and have over 40 years’ experience of working with children of all ages and needs. When working I was a Special Needs Co-ordinator and Behavioural lead and so have a lot of knowledge in these areas which I am able to draw on when working with children.

Upon retiring I felt I wanted to continue with supporting children and so completed some additional training so I could work from my own space. I have a beautiful therapy room which I have designed making it adult and child friendly. I can also extend my therapy into a garden area if needed.

When working with children I allow myself to be guided by the child’s needs and likes and am particularly keen to work with art and sand tray pictures. I use a range of other strategies and can help a child to establish their own Emotional tool kit to aid them as they grow.

Please contact me for an informal chat or check out my website at Worth Hypnotherapy for more information and pictures.

Many thanks for reading about me.

Fiona Kent, HPD


Phone: 07841 356716

Are you looking for a way to change the way your child thinks, feels or behaves? Are you looking for them to be more relaxed? More calm and confident? To be less overwhelmed and anxious? To release tension, fear, self-limiting beliefs, and sadness? To cope better with the everyday stresses of a chaotic modern life.

I am Fi, of Love Reiki Holistic Healing Therapies, and I am here to help you.

As a mum of 2, I know how difficult it can be to watch your child struggle with their emotions. Lack of self-confidence, anxiety, fears, friendship issues and general worries can all impact on their wellbeing and in many cases the whole family.

My approach is holistic, it considers the well-being of the whole person – mind, body, and spirit. My therapy intentions are simple; to light a spark so that children and teens feel happier, stronger, and more resilient across all these levels. With a kind, compassionate and warm approach, I help young people to feel more confident in overcoming problems and in dealing with life’s challenges.

Working collaboratively, I combine a mix of fast acting yet gentle therapeutic approaches (including hypnotherapy, NLP, EFT tapping, EMDR, and reiki) tailored to your child’s evolving needs as we progress together through their healing journey.

All of the therapeutic approaches we use are soothing and calming, designed to help natural relaxation and lower stress levels, to reset and re-balance, and move forward in a more positive and fulfilling way.

I support children, teens, and young people on a one-to-one basis, both in person and online, teaching them tools and techniques that can be utilised outside of sessions to build inner strength, to help bring around positive change in so many different aspects of their life.

In-person sessions are held in The Healing Hut, a warm and cosy shepherds hut in the Hampshire countryside (conveniently located for Basingstoke, Alton, Farnham, Alresford, and Winchester), a safe and calm and soothing space surrounded by nature.

Please get in touch if you would like some help, I offer a free 30 min consultation to chat through your needs.
