BABIES, CHILDREN AND TEENS
- Are you having trouble weaning your baby?
- Are you worried your child is a bit chubby, but you don’t want to make them self-conscious?
- Does your child suffer from exam anxiety or low self esteem?
- Do you think your teen may have an eating disorder?
We all want our children to be happy and confident, but there can be times when you know they’re struggling but don’t know quite how to help them. Perhaps you are trying, but this is just leading to arguments and you’d like to ‘step out of the firing line’.
As resident nutritionist for Mother & Baby magazine, Lowri Turner is an expert on baby and toddler feeding and weaning problems.
She also sees children and teens for a wide variety of problems including:
- Healthy weight management and eating disorders
- Exam and school stress.
- Confidence and self esteem.
REVISION MOTIVATION AND EXAM STRESS REDUCTION PROGRAMME
If your child is preparing to sit 11+, GCSE or A level exams, they can start to really feel the pressure. This can result anxiety, fear and procrastination. Either they don’t get down to their revision at all, or they spend so long doing it they become panicky and perfectionist.
Hypnotherapy can help your child develop better, focused revision habits and be calm, relaxed and confident during exams.
WHAT THE PROGRAMME INCLUDES
‘As a mother-of-three, one of whom is about to become a teenager, I know how tricky it can be to guide and support your children while not becoming a helicopter parent, and holding on to your own sanity!
My primary aim then is to deal sensitively, safely and gently with every baby/child/teen I see, while keeping the parent in the loop.
Common problems such as weaning issues, pubertal weight gain and exam stress can often be dramatically improved with a combination of the right diet and hypnotherapy. Children are actually really good at hypnotherapy as the line between ‘real life’ and the imagination is much finer. They really enjoy it and are fascinated at the results.]
For parents too, my dual therapy has real benefits. Often part of the ‘problem’, especially with older children, can be a battle between parent and child. The parent’s best intentions and the child’s desire for independence result in conflict. By allowing me, as a third party to offer professional guidance, the parent can step back and relax a little. This is a huge relief to many stressed-out parents.’
