Child Therapy

The Child therapy ‘Blowaway Technique’ in St Albans.


Children are amazing subjects when it comes to hypnosis and hypnotherapy due to being extremely imaginative, they often respond excellently to therapy with incredible results

At the McKeown Clinic we see children and teenagers for hypnotherapy treatments from the age of 8 to 16 years of age. Children under the age of 16 are always accompanied by a parent or guardian. Usually we like to see the parent that has the best connection with child or who has more of a promenant role in the child’s upbringing. The parent is encouraged to participate in the session in the same way as the child.

The ‘Blowaway’ technique

This single hypnotherapy session has been designed in mind for the use with children to help them resolve their anxieties, worries or phobias. The therapy, including hypnosis, is aimed at removing hurdles from the child, so that the child will eventually grow up to be the best person they possibly can be.

The Blowaway session is a doubt a very gentle, yet powerful type of therapy.  During the session, the child is guided into a calm and relaxed state, they are encouraged to take a deep breath and ‘blow away’ any negative intense emotions/feelings that are ‘bottled up’, resulting in reduced anxiety.

The session ends with relaxation and positively phrased suggestions for both the child and parent. It is a fun, interesting, informal and very liberating experience for both the child and parent.
