ADDICTIONS HYPNOTHERAPY & CHILDREN 

Visit main page for Edmonton hypnotherapy for addictions.

Office sessions and/or addictions hypnotherapy via private portals are available.

The fact that addictions impact children on many levels cannot be disputed. This is a reality whether children begin this life impacted by pre-natal alcohol/drug exposure or move through developmental years in the presence of a caregiver with addictive behavior. (Read Sharon's story).

Children do not yet have the cognitive capacity to filter information and are literal “black and white experiencers.” Beliefs about the self and about the world form early and are stored subconsciously. These dysfunctional beliefs continue to impact one’s life experience long into adulthood. 

However, we need not assume that past programming cannot replaced with a better set of messaging. While developmental stages are indeed significant in terms of learning there is plenty of evidence to suggest that new ideas and beliefs can be adopted at any life stage. 

Most often, there will rarely be a more impactful teacher then that of the parent/guardian. Therefore it is imperative that the addict caregiver become fully aware of the impact on dependent children and begin to create simple practical shifts. Functional addicts especially have the ability to create needed safety, structure and loving rituals for children. Those addicts who have lost the capacity to stay gainfully employed and/or to meet basic safety and emotional needs are at risk for having their children removed by protective services. 

Children who experience caregivers becoming stable will begin to mirror healthier thoughts, feelings and behaviors themselves. Caregivers who choose to become the CEO of their lives are more apt to raise children who will become healthy adaptive functional adults.
