Rest and SleepDownloadable Audiobook - 2004
Helps your child drift calmly off to sleep. This audio book will help your child: - Enjoy relaxing easily - Feel calm and reassured - Paint away worrying thoughts into a passing cloud - Be reassured about normal night time sounds - Feel safe and peaceful as they drift off to sleep This is a self-help hypnotherapy recording for children from about 8 years old and over, who have difficulty in sleeping. Gentle and relaxing, it helps them feel more calm and comfortable as they wait patiently for sleep to come upon them. Children can relax as they listen and drift comfortably off to sleep at the end. The recording should be in addition to, rather than instead of, any usual bedtime rituals or stories so that they don't feel deprived in any way. Listening to this audio book, children will relax comfortably, imagining breathing in calm and breathing out unwanted thoughts or feelings that have previously prevented them from sleeping. They imagine using a paintbrush to paint, or using a gold glitter pen to write down, any worries on to a sheet of white paper and then folding it up over and over and squeezing it into a matchbox. Or they can choose to let the thought drift out of their mind into a passing white cloud that carries it away. Everyday household sounds such as gurgling radiators or creaking stairs are reframed with a safe twist and they are encouraged to feel safe and peaceful and at ease as the recording plays. Research shows that when a person first acts out each positive step in their imagination, it dramatically increases the likelihood of their success in the real world. This recording contains powerful suggestions for boosting confidence and self-esteem. The language and topics used are carefully crafted to appeal to listeners of all suitable ages. Lynda Hudson's gentle, well-modulated, English voice calms, re-assures and encourages. A clinical hypnotherapist and former teacher, Lynda has worked with many children and has helped them overcome numerous problems. Her work has been widely featured in the press and she has appeared on both TV and radio.
