I Love Going to the Dentist!Downloadable Audiobook - 2005
Overcome your child's fear of the dentist! This audio book will help your child: - Paint away fears - Feel brave, happy and safe - Imagine themselves self, laughing & relaxed at dentist - Be wide open mouth and feeling proud This is a self-help hypnotherapy recording for children aged between four and seven years old who either have already developed a fear of the dentist or who tend to be a bit nervous of new situations. With regular listening they are helped to become accustomed to the idea of visiting the dentist feeling happy, calm and confident. Play the recording at bedtime; your child can relax and drift off to sleep at the end. If you find that they fall asleep more or less immediately, let them listen at a quiet time earlier on before bedtime instead, or as well as, when they go to bed. 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. The gentle & relaxing, story first gets them to imagine going off to a magic garden where they touch the magic colourful flowers to feel happy and brave. Then they look in the pond and see their reflection; they are sitting in the dentist's chair, riding up and down on the seat, opening their mouth wide so the dentist can count and admire their teeth. They see some of the silver instruments that the dentist uses to help them become comfortable with the situation and surroundings. 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.
