Treating Bedwetting in Children With Hypnosis
You are not alone, bedwetting is an issue faced by many families every night.
According to The National Sleep Foundation and the Children’s Hospital of Boston “between five and seven million children in the United States wet their beds on a regular basis, which accounts for 10% of the United States population of children”.
Hypnosis can help both you and your family because it is able to re-program the brain so your child will be able to wake up when their bladder is full and proceed to the toilet.
The medical term for bedwetting is called Enuresis. The most common form of which is nocturnal enuresis, which refers to the involuntary urination at night in children over 5. (Bedwetting before 6 or 7 is considered normal)
Hypnosis and self-hypnosis strategies are effective for bedwetting as children are generally very hypnotizable. Hypnosis builds self-esteem, confidence and optimism as the child learns to take control of the problem.
