Treatment of Bed Wetting or Nocturnal Enuresis

Hypnotherapy is both a natural and effective solution to your child’s bedwetting problem, which is the cause of untold misery to both child and parents. The endless washing of sheets and ruined mattresses and witnessing your child’s own dejection and disappointment, the problem just seems unsolvable and desperate.

Your child will suffer in many different ways, but possibly the worst issue is the damage to their self-esteem. They feel they should have outgrown what they see as a babyish problem, and can feel ashamed, depressed, and angry with themselves or others, and a failure.  Sleep is often broken with the need to change wet bedclothes or pyjamas, so they become more tired and irritable.

And there is the ever-present sense of failure along with a need to go to extraordinary lengths to hide the bed wetting from friends and, sometimes even other members of the family.

Children under the age of twelve are usually very good hypnotic subjects, and can easily learn about ‘dryness’. Hypnotherapy is much less invasive than most other treatments such as bed-alarms, medication or incontinence pants (which are generally not helpful).

Hypnotherapy is gentle, natural and safe and uses your child’s imaginative powers to change their expectations of failure, into success. It will increase their self-confidence as they achieve ‘dry nights’ and will bring back self-control and self-respect.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

The Federal Health Minister, Greg Hunt, has advised that “ALL allied health businesses nationally can continue working and are encouraged to do”. He has encouraged providers to continue vital face-to-face services where possible.

These are challenging times for everyone, but your personal and relationship issues continue to need assistance. My practice is still open for hypnotherapy and individual or relationship counselling, including Rekindle the Love workshops.

However, face-to-face sessions are available only for local residents, at this time.

If you are sick or have come into contact with the Coronavirus at any point, and/or if you have recently been overseas, please stay at home and contact me on 0407 009 050 to reschedule your appointment.

The safety of my clients and wider community is of utmost importance to me, and my home-based clinic is fully compliant with the new social distancing rules and hygiene practices. I have ensured that appointments are staggered so that you and your partner, where appropriate, are the only clients visiting my practice, at any one time.

Video sessions are available for both individuals and couples, I am currently preparing a program for couples to complete a Rekindle the Love workshop, online.

Please contact me for more information.

Coronavirus and social isolation will add to existing pressure points on relationships, so don’t let your marriage become a coronavirus casualty.

I thank you for your continued support in these uncertain times and know that together we will get through this.
