Never cry over a wet bed again with Hypnosis
Finding a wet bed is a stressful experience for everyone involved. The child may feel inadequate or embarrassed and the parent may feel that nothing they do is working.
You've been a good parent, you bought all of the books, tried potty training, had conversations, explained your point of view, tried every method available but you still wake up t a wet bed.
What do you do and why is this happening?
Bed wetting is a psychological condition, and has very little to do with the a pure physical condition, after all your little one is perfectly healthy. We work with our little clients to help their subconscious mind turn on the 'alarm' that tells them to get up and use the potty while reassuring them that this is not an embarrassing situation and they have the power to wake up to a clean bed.
We want to be perfectly clear, in most cases bed wetting is not a medical condition and some reassurance and confidence building as well as our alarm strategy works in most cases, but you will want to make sure that it is not in fact medical. Once you have decided that your little one is healthy and they can benefit from Hypnosis give us a call or schedule a session.
Hypnosis is different for kids, they don't go into the sleep type state of focused concentration in the same way as adults, their to hyper and move around. But Hypnosis doesn't rely on a person to be still and sleeping, it requires imagination and role playing, which kids do on a daily basis.

What is enuresis?
Enuresis (say "enuresis") is the medical term for bed-wetting during sleep. Bed-wetting is fairly common. About 5 million to 7 million children wet the bed. It's more common among boys than girls.
What causes bed-wetting?
Some of the causes of bed-wetting include the following:
• Genetic factors (it tends to run in families)
• Difficulties waking up from sleep
• Slower than normal development of the central nervous systemizes reduces the child's ability to stop the bladder from emptying at night
• Hormonal factors (not enough antidiuretic harmonised hormone reduces the amount of urine made by the kidneys)
• Urinary tract infections
• Abnormalities in the urethral valves in boys or in the ureter in girls or boys
• Abnormalities in the spinal cord
• Inability to hold urine for a long time because of small bladder
Bed-wetting isn't caused by drinking too much before bedtime. It's not a mental or behavior problem. It doesn't happen because the child is too lazy to get out of bed to go to the bathroom. And children do not wet the bed on purpose or to irritate their parents.
When do most children achieve bladder control?
Children achieve bladder control at different ages. By the age of 5 years, most children no longer urinate in their sleep. Bed-wetting up to the age of 5 is not unusual, even though it may be frustrating to parents. Treating a child for bed-wetting before the age of 5 is not necessary and may even be harmful to the child.
How does Hypnotherapy help
Hypnotherapy is not based on conditioning therapy. It involves the explanation of the bladder-brain connection and teaching self-hypnosis and visual imaging to the child in responding to a full bladder during sleep. One controlled study comparing hypnotherapy with imipramine reported a 76% dryness rate after initiating both types of therapy. After 9 months, 68% of the hypnotherapy group remained dry in comparison to only 24% in the imipramine group (Beverage et al., 1993). If clinicians are interested in this form of treatment, they must be trained and certified by the American Society for Clinical Hypnosis (Moffatt, 1997).
What are the treatments for bed-wetting?
Hypnosis is an effective way to reprogram the brain bladder connection. Children are ultra sensitive to suggestion, and even more so during the hypnotic state.
• Session to control the brain bladder connection
• Re-programming existing patterns
• On-Going Hypnotic Suggestion of a Dry Bed in the morning
• Bladder training through hypnotic suggestion: training the childs subconscious to hold onto water longer or to wake them up.
How can I help my child not feel so bad about wetting the bed?
Bed-wetting can lead to behavior problems because of the guilt and embarrassment a child feels. It's true that your child should take responsibility for bed-wetting (this could mean having your child help with the laundry). But your child shouldn't be made to feel guilty about something he or she can't control. It's important for your child to know that bed-wetting isn't his or her "fault." Punishing your child for wetting the bed will not solve the problem.
It may help your child to know that no one knows the exact cause of bed-wetting. Explain that it tends to run in families (for example, if you wet the bed as a child, you should share that information with your child).
