Share this article on social media: "Webinar: Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for Children & Teens – interview with Emma Coffey"

In December 2020 I interviewed Emma Coffey about her experience as a hypnotherapist – and especially looking at her work with children and teenagers.

During the training programme the College ran for a group of Great Ormond Street Hospital psychologists it became clear that Emma had developed a highly creative yet science-based way of working with children of all ages.

Her adaption of the cognitive behavioural hypnotherapy model and the 35 techniques taught on the Diploma training  – to young people and children was really inspiring, filled with intelligence and highly creative.

It was clear Emma had taken everything we'd taught her and then adapted it so creatively, and yet so true to the model, to children and teens.

So I was eager to have Emma on a webinar and interview her about her approach, philosophy, experience, advice and tips.

We discuss Emma's initial experience after having qualified and how she started working with teenagers and then children.
We discuss the challenges of working with children.
How to involve parents.
How to be authentic and real – and of course as much as you can… PLAYFUL.
The need to be spontaneous and let the child take the lead…. and much more.

It was a deeply interesting and inspiring 2.5 hours (it was only supposed to be 90 minutes).

I hope many people are inspired to start working with young people after this.

See the course Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy for Children and Young People with Emma Coffey to see how you can train to work with children and teenagers.
