Are you the parent of a child with anxieties which are affecting their school and social life; may be your child has been adversely affected by a life’s event; is having difficultly coming to terms with a change in their life; they have a habit which is having a negative impact; they have fears and phobias which are getting out of control?
All of these things and more can be helped with a discussion with a therapist, support strategies, and hypnotherapy.
At McKenna Therapies we are always happy to have a telephone consultation and will always be open and honest about what options are available, and what strategies the family can adopt to help the situation. Sometimes as a parent it’s helpful to have someone to off load your own anxieties to and release some of your own tension and stress when you have been coping with a situation and have not been sure where to turn.
Children have no misconceptions about hypnotherapy and respond very well, and have a wonderful capacity to use their imaginations to see and do very creative things which can be very healing in the long term. For the younger children we like to use characters such as Charlie Dog who likes to join in imaginary games and is a keen listener and often can make suggestions which children readily take up because he is non-threatening and believable. Children are always seen with a parent or guardian in a child friendly environment.
Young Adults 10yrs to 18yrs of age
Children to Young Adults are often plagued with the same insecurities, anxieties and stress levels as adults. Particularly in this time of social media, peer pressure to conform, and the need to achieve at school on every level.
These issues can display themselves as anger, aggression, school phobia, social phobia and other erratic behaviour which is often very difficult to understand. They often do not wish to confide in any one who appears to be in authority in their world and can often find it easier to talk to an outsider, a therapist who has no role to play in their everyday world.
At McKenna Holistic Therapy we have access to many therapies
such a Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Life Coaching, CBT, NLP, Reiki and some
of the more up to date therapies, which gives an excellent opportunity to
match the young person’s issues with more than one therapy. As with all
things in life behaviours and anxieties are rarely simple and are far more
likely to be complex in nature and need more than one approach, which we

TestimonialI have had four sessions with Amanda, 2 as life coaching and 2 as hypnotherapy.
My life coaching sessions have had such a huge impact, I was a little sceptical about the whole thing but now I feel totally convinced. My outlook on my future goals are now realistic and achievable . I now look at situations in a positive way instead of seeking the negative .
My hypnotherapy sessions have been quite amazing, I have realised that I have negative influences in my hidden memories that have affected my life. Dealing with these and facing/talking about them has given me so much peace. I didn't think I'd be able to open up but have found the whole experience quite easy. I look forward to continuing my sessions and with this improving myself and becoming the best version of me that I can .

TestimonialI have had two sets of hypnotherapy sessions with Andrea and on both occasions they have been extremely successful.
Firstly, I was getting more and more anxious about having an annual MRI scan but following a few sessions I was able to face this daunting prospect with confidence. Secondly, further sessions with Andrea, allowed me to be totally relaxed when undergoing lens replacement surgery on my eyes. I was able to relax completely, which is all down to Andrea giving me the tools to do so.
