Children and ADD / ADHD
Amanda Wright offers a holistic approach to managing symptoms for children with ADHD, through hypnotherapy and mindfulness techniques. Her goal is to help children with ADHD achieve greater focus, self-regulation, and overall well-being.
What is ADHD?
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects a child's ability to focus, pay attention, and control impulses. In Australia, it is estimated that about 7.5% of children aged 4-17 years have ADHD.
How can hypnotherapy and mindfulness help children with ADHD?
Hypnotherapy and mindfulness has many benefits for children with ADHD, including:
- Improved focus and attention: Hypnotherapy can help guide children into a state of deep relaxation where their minds become more receptive to suggestions for improved attention, while mindfulness can help them develop a greater sense of presence and awareness, reducing distractions.
- Enhanced self-regulation: Hypnotherapy can help children develop greater self-awareness and control over their thoughts and behaviors, while mindfulness can teach them to be more present and intentional with their actions, reducing impulsivity.
- Reduced anxiety: Anxiety is a common co-occurring condition with ADHD, and hypnotherapy and mindfulness can help reduce anxiety symptoms by promoting relaxation and calming the mind.
How does hypnotherapy and mindfulness work?
Hypnotherapy induces a state of deep relaxation where the mind becomes more receptive to positive suggestions. During a hypnotherapy session, a trained practitioner such as Amanda will guide the child into a state of relaxation and use positive suggestions to help them overcome their ADHD symptoms.
Mindfulness involves teaching children to focus on the present moment and be more intentional with their actions; through activities such as meditation, breathing exercises, and mindful movement.
Combining hypnotherapy and mindfulness
Combining hypnotherapy and mindfulness can provide children with a powerful tool for managing their ADHD symptoms. By developing greater self-awareness and control over their thoughts and behaviors, children can improve their focus, reduce impulsivity, and enhance their overall well-being.
Working with a trained practitioner
It is important to work with a trained and licensed practitioner such as Amanda when using hypnotherapy or mindfulness for ADHD, especially when working with children.

"My 11yo son has had ongoing medical problems since birth. Amanda was recommended to me, and I sought out her help after doctors were unable to resolve the issue. I found her to be extremely empathetic and confident as I sat in on a Zoom session with my son. After one short session, he has gained control of his problem and is far more confident. As a parent feeling helpless, this was the breakthrough I have been searching for. I'm extremely grateful for Amanda's knowledge and skills and would highly recommend her." Jason G.
