Healing the Inner Child with Hypnotherapy
Healing the inner child is an important process for individuals who have experienced trauma or neglect during their childhood. The inner child is the vulnerable and emotional part of ourselves that can impact our adult relationships, self-esteem, and overall well-being. Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can be used to heal the inner child and provide individuals with the opportunity to reconnect with their emotional selves. In this blog post, we’ll explore how hypnotherapy can be used to heal the inner child.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy that uses hypnosis to help individuals access their subconscious mind. During a hypnotherapy session, the therapist guides the individual into a trance-like state where they are relaxed and more open to suggestion. This state allows individuals to access memories, emotions, and thoughts that are stored in their subconscious mind. Hypnotherapy can be used to treat a variety of conditions, including anxiety, depression, phobias, and addiction.
How Hypnotherapy Can Heal the Inner Child
Hypnotherapy can be a powerful tool for healing the inner child because it allows individuals to access and process their emotions and memories in a safe and supportive environment. By working with a trained hypnotherapist, individuals can explore their childhood experiences, emotions, and beliefs and work through any unresolved trauma or pain.
Here are some ways hypnotherapy can help heal the inner child:
1. Accessing repressed memories: Hypnotherapy can help individuals access memories that they may have repressed or forgotten. These memories may hold important information about past experiences that have impacted their emotional and psychological development.
2. Releasing negative emotions: During hypnotherapy, individuals can release negative emotions and beliefs that may be impacting their adult relationships. This can include releasing feelings of abandonment, rejection, or neglect.
3. Reprogramming beliefs and behaviors: Hypnotherapy can be used to reprogram negative beliefs and behaviors that were formed during childhood. This can help individuals develop new, healthier patterns of behavior and belief.
4. Building self-compassion: Through hypnotherapy, individuals can develop a greater sense of self-compassion and self-love. This can help them heal from past trauma and develop a greater sense of self-worth.
How to Use Hypnotherapy to Heal the Inner Child

4. After the session, take time to reflect on what you experienced and any insights you gained. It’s important to practice self-care and self-compassion after a hypnotherapy session.

Hypnotherapy works with the subconscious mind to remove self-sabotaging behaviors, limiting beliefs, and blocks that prevent you from leading your best life – in love, career, finance, health, and so much more.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful therapeutic technique that accesses your subconscious mind. Your subconscious mind is 90% of the mind and is where all of your feelings, emotions, long-term memory, habits, patterns, beliefs, and behaviors are stored – which makes hypnotherapy so effective. We have direct access to heal your issue at its core.
How Does Hypnotherapy Work?
With hypnotherapy, we have direct access to your subconscious mind and are able to go to the root of your issue and heal it. Through the process of hypnotherapy, we are able to go to the exact origin of your issue, identify how it is affecting you in your present life, and heal it.
From there, you will learn new tools, resources, and practices to use in your everyday life. You will leave the hypnotherapy session feeling lighter, empowered, and ready to create active change in your life.
How is Hypnotherapy Different from Talk Therapy?
Hypnotherapy is different than talk therapy because in hypnotherapy we access your subconscious mind – which is 90% of your brain. Talk therapy works with your conscious mind – the other 10% part of your brain that analyzes, computes, and discerns.
Hypnotherapy goes both deeper and faster than talk therapy. For this reason, it is my preferred method of therapy.
What Happens During a Hypnotherapy Session?
The hypnotherapy session begins with soft, relaxing music and relaxation techniques to take you deep into a state of relaxation. Your eyes will be closed for the majority of the session. You can choose to lie down or sit up, whichever feels most comfortable to you.
You and I will then dialogue about your issue from your subconscious mind and very much like a guided meditation or a relaxing visualization, we will go through the process of accessing the root of your issue.
Once we discover that, we will remove the old, negative block and replace it with new, healthy ways of being in your life.
