Enuresis


Is bedwetting ruining your child’s (and your) life?

Many children have trouble with enuresis, that embarrassing problem of bed-wetting. As you already know, it can devastate a child’s self-confidence and social opportunities. It can also ruin your sleep, as you get up at night to change the sheets.

Enuresis

It’s usually caused by sleeping too deeply. The child simply sleeps through the signals that would otherwise wake them up to use the bathroom. Hypnosis is effective in lightening their sleep, so that they recognize and respond to signals that “nature is calling” in the middle of the night. It also sets up positive reinforcement to strengthen the desired behavior.

Hypnosis is very effective with enuresis. It usually requires 5-8 weekly sessions and some changes in your home (e.g., rearranging bedroom furniture to create an environment of change and a reward system for successful dry nights).
