Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy in Sydney
The Hero’s Journey
- Have you experienced trauma as a child?
- Were you abandoned as a child?
- Did you feel like you weren’t heard from people?
Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy in Sydney offers hypnotherapy and regression therapy to create a landscape for self healing. As we begin the process of Inner child healing, we tap into feeling states we may have experienced in our younger years by changing negative patterns and clearing emotional blockages. We can release deep anger, rage, guilt, and painful wounds that exist deep in our unconscious mind.
In our childhood, we may have experienced trauma which created multiple ego personalities and created our programming from parental and social conditioning. Because of this programming, we abandon ourselves, our wants, desires, and needs. We begin to lose our sense of authenticity and true nature. We can also manage to allow others to take advantage of us, a failure to create healthy boundaries were never created. Once we begin healing the inner child, we then create healthy boundaries, developing a stronger sense of self and creating a path to a more empowered and enlightened self.
Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy can help create that space for yourself as you integrate that true sense of self back into your present. When dealing with trauma in childhood, we don’t have a developed mind to process complex traumas. The child hasn’t matured in a healthy way, so as the child becomes an adult, a mature level of brain activity and awareness is required to process unresolved issues trapped within the persons’ life timeline. Essentially, it is an energy that is transmuted and transformed.

Moving back to our inner true self
As a child in trauma, sometimes we suppress these experiences deep in the unconscious mind. The strange thing about it is that these hidden experiences still dictate our behaviours in our everyday interactions with friends, family, and relationships. The process of Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy is about extending the hand of the ‘Higher Self’ out to the child self, allowing the child to feel safe and secure. Giving the child a place to heal is what needs to happen. So, reassuring the child that he or she is loved, cared for, and respected, giving the child a place too vent, begins the process of letting go and healing.
Essentially, the adult self is taking on the role of a carer where understanding is offered, even when the child has built walls of defence, protecting itself from a threat. The key to the therapy work is ongoing even after the hypnotherapy sessions, where the child is placed somewhere within the present adult awareness in a safe place and ongoing attention and inner dialogue helps the child mature and grow. In other words, there is plenty of self-help work that is needed by the client, where the client actually becomes the therapist for the child.
Nurturing the child within
There are many ways to do this and the therapy depends on the situation. We must touch the hand of the child with a sense of understanding and using deep mindfulness and relaxation. Mindfulness is the process of being more aware of what the child is experiencing, offering the child a hand of understanding, the hand of your adult wisdom. Once the adult wisdom of understanding begins the process of kindness and compassion towards the child, the child will feel a sense of security so it can let go of the pain and anger held deep in the shadows of their mind.
The unconscious defence mechanisms suppress these feelings in order to protect the welfare of the individual, in other words, the child aspect of the self will always go with what is familiar rather than do something outside of its comfort zone. And the child’s growth hasn’t matured properly. Think of the child as a part of your whole, a little like a patch of grass that has not grown lush and green from lack of sun and nurture.
Once we move down into the unconscious mind with love and care, as a loving nurturer, we can then allow the unconscious to let go of the grip it holds for protection. Once this happens, the child’s ego and the adult person can then communicate with each other, allowing the process of resolution and integration. Once this integration process is completed, we also integrate the wonder and beauty of the child back into the adult awareness. Think of it as a trade. The adult ego self is offering its wisdom and adult perspective to the child, and eventually the child will offer its playfulness, magic, and joy to the adult self as the child blossoms.
As we begin the release of painful feelings and experiences in childhood, we can then re-learn to honour that child. And nurture the child in the ‘Garden of the Heart’. Before this happens, we need to release the emotional energies of pain we carry and return that joy of childhood back into the present adult awareness.
The Mechanics of Inner Child Healing
The first step is to strengthen the adult self with the spirit of the higher self. Guidance and creative inspiration of spirit will need to be developed through being honest and truthful with the self. Building support structures through friends, family, or any positive influences that will not judge needs to be established. Experiencing the state of being strong and capable of parenting the child within you.
The second stage is to explore the origins of the feeling states and behaviour by exploring beliefs, thoughts and patterns. To dialogue with the child, build trust, and show the child love, support, and a space to be heard. The child may not understand what has happened to them. Explaining and reframing beliefs with truth and appropriate behaviours helps the child heal. The adult parent (your present self) will be reframing the misconceptions the child has developed as a child. The child’s feeling states always develop before the child can reason cognitively, so clearing things up helps the child let go.
The third stage is to continue to support, correct, and nurture the child by maturity through a communicative understanding of what is true and challenging old beliefs. Is this true… Now? The process is about maturing the child through communication and dialogue. The adult must always find the nurturer for the child, not the child. The child may be very petulant, spoilt, angry, and unable to reason. The adult self is responsible for correcting misconceptions and maturing the child as an adult.
The child always needs someone to hear their story and always needs to be asked first when seeking the champion. It is always recommended to break any rules embedded in childhood, usually from parents. It’s ok to make a mistake. As the child is communicated with, the child needs to grieve the past losses. Sometimes the child needs to say goodbye to their parents so he/she can be rejoined with their higher self. Strangely, the child can feel safe within the familiar trauma. The child is removed from the toxic environment where the trauma was created. The child can return back to the original parents after the healing is completed. In this process, the child sometimes needs to create boundaries with the parents.
It is always a delicate balance when saying goodbye to the old parents. Believing and trusting the adult self as the new carer can be challenging. The child can find other people who he/she can be inspired as a champion, making sure that the child is not finding external validation from others to receive self love. The idea is to redirect the healing internally between the child and the adult self ensuring that the person in therapy is developing a self-love approach. Love, validation, and approval can not be found outside of the self. Before any human being can love another, the person needs to generate their own love, respect, and self regulating energy from within and projecting it outwards into the world as self love.
The fourth stage is the process of integrating the child within and the adult present time in every moment, a place where the adult can love, mature, and nurture the child. Spending time talking to the child ten minutes a day is preferable for change. Some people prefer to write to the child. Questions to ask the child would be, “What are you wanting, feeling, needing?” Normalising the shame can help the child let go of those red light negative emotions. The spiritual self can be a witness to the healing process which can help in assuring the child that the adult is strong enough to be its carer. This higher self can be the mediator between the child and the adult parent self.
This aspect of the self can install new voices of loving and care, overriding shameful parental voices from the past. The adult parent can use tactile touch, playfulness, experiencing nature, visualisation and imagination to bring the joy of the child into the present. Mindfulness or spending time alone doing nothing can be a great way to bring the joy of the child into the present. This usually happens when the child is trusting the adult parental self and is beginning to mature.
This process of Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy is where the child is introduced to a new healing space, preferably a space they desire to be creative in. It’s important to know that when healing in this therapy, it is always good to remove the child from the space they developed their trauma or negative beliefs. Once the child is taken to a space of safety, playfulness, and creativity, the child is then introduced to the present adult parental self and other people who the child may have trusted, respected, and felt safe around. In this process, the child can explore itself through creativity, authentic expression and maturity, whereas in the historical past, they couldn’t experience these moments of joy.
Another thing to remember is that not all clients will identify a trauma from a single incident. Some people may find it difficult to pinpoint where the origin of their limitations come from. But eventually and most often, the trauma stems from childhood, where the programming took place.
Creative Unconscious mind believes the story
When sitting in this Inner Child healing space, the therapist will create a metaphoric story where the child can explore itself and mature. A story that can empower the child and allow free flow of expression and creativity. The unconscious aspect of the true self is creative and does not know the difference between fact or fantasy. So letting go and trusting the unconscious mind to take in the new story as real is essential. The only thing that gets in the way is the critical faculty of the analytical mind. All we need to do is command it to step aside and let the healing take place.
The landscape of our shadow unconscious
Deep within your unconscious, this awareness is waiting to be activated. Imagine Inner Child Hypnotherapy as the key and the unconscious mind as the door. What’s behind the door is the inner authenticity of the true self. Behind that door are opportunities to experience playfulness, inquisitiveness, joyfulness, compassion, and divine bliss. The second and third hour is Hypnotherapy, suggestion therapy, mindfulness, and deep relaxation. Through the relaxation process, you will move your consciousness to a deep ‘Theta Brain wave’ state where your unconscious mind is doing its work to protect and nurture you.
Here we will move through the deep landscape of your Childhood feeling states, bridging your present adult wisdom and marrying this with your future aspirations. Once we then move forward, we are then able to project that inner child into the future as it then begins its metamorphosis into the present. Essentially you’re bringing childhood joy into the now and your future intentions into the present now and creating them now.
There is no time like the ‘NOW’. Once we say to ourselves, I want to feel this now, we are no longer stalling what we want into the future. In essence, bliss is experienced in the now and not tomorrow. This is the key to unlocking what we want.

Often these symptoms will be treated with drugs prescribed by a doctor. Anti-depressants, sleep medication, and perhaps a diet or stop smoking program will be prescribed. It’s a good idea to see a doctor first before seeing a Hypnotherapist.
For the duty of care for my clients, I need to screen potential clients for mental illness before we proceed with a session. I am not able to facilitate Hypnotherapy, Counselling, or Reiki if you have a mental illness such as Schizophrenia or Bipolar or any other diagnosed mental illness by your Doctor, Specialist, or Psychiatrist.
If you are on Anxiety or Depression medication, you will need to get a doctor’s referral first before the session and bring the referral to the session. Not all people on medications and a referral can start the therapy. There will be a screening process before we proceed.
