Well done for taking steps to improve your child’s well being. This bedtime story can be for children of all ages (even adults!), but perhaps most aimed at 3-10 year olds who are worried or scared during the night.
It is a tale of Cathy the Caterpillar, who lives in a protective, safe tree, although sometimes her powerful imagination persuades her otherwise. Combining hypnotherapy techniques and positive suggestions with story telling, this tale is fantastic at calming youngsters worries, creating a safe place for them to relax into a deep sleep. Ideally listened to at bedtime, utilising the relaxed state of the child to suggest beneficial messages, and giving them calming tools that they can use in future. These stories also benefit from being used repeatedly, so that the positive messages are reinforced within the subconscious mind. Not for use while the parents/carers are driving!
Fiona is a clinical hypnotherapist, originally from the UK, now living in Australia. Inspired always by her own two children, she is enjoying combining her love of storytelling with her professional techniques to inspire positive change in our future generations.
