Calling all senses

The importance of sensory input based kids hypnosis

Ruth Roethlisberger

Presented by

Ruth Roethlisberger

Working with kids in hypnosis is different from working with adults as their attention span is shorter and they might struggle with sitting still and keeping their eyes closed. On the other hand kids love to move and have the amazing ability to just go in and out of hypnosis within seconds.

This is why I think that we need to give them a full sensory experience throughout the session. As a kids therapist you need to know how to trigger all of your young clients´ senses and make them feel, taste, smell, hear and visualise the change they are about to have in their life.

I was born in Germany in 1979. In 2007 I moved to Switzerland to work for TUI - a tour operator. In 2014 I became an OMNI certified hypnotherapist as well as a HypnoKids specialist while living in Singapore. I opened my own hypnosis practice after moving back to Switzerland in 2015. Since 2017 up to 80% of my work is working with children aged 7 – 13 years of age. In 2015 and 2016 I became an active-alert therapist, since 2018 I am also an instructor. I regularly offer relaxation evenings as well as visionboard workshops.
