In the pre-talk introduce the child to the concept of his own ‘Body Mind’ – the (subconscious) mind that controls all the body functions, knows much more about him as a person, can think clearly and speak easily.
You can start the session by practicing with the child any fun convincer technique to introduce him to hypnosis and make him feel safe and comfortable.
Establish finger signaling.
Induce hypnosis by having the child imagine a big TV screen in front of him of bright blue color. Tell him that at the count of three the picture will come into motion and he will see different colours and images that are constantly changing.
Tell him that you want him to open and close his eyes every time the colour or image on the screen changes. Eventually let his Body Mind come on the screen and when this happens, let his right index finger float up.
Ask the child what his Body Mind looks like.
Ask him if it is OK to talk directly to his Body Mind. Take off from here to uncover the cause of the condition.
