Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy
The Hero’s Journey
- Have you experienced childhood trauma?
- Were you abandoned as a child?
- Did you feel like you weren’t heard by your family?
- Have you experienced trauma?
- Are you dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)?
Do you feel that you haven’t properly developed from childhood?
Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy in Sydney offers Analytical Hypnotherapy and Regression therapy to create a landscape for healing childhood trauma. As we begin the process of Inner child healing, we access 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.
our parental programming
As a child, we may have experienced Trauma, abuse, or neglect from our parents and carers. Social conditioning may have hindered your ability to ask for what you want within your family unit. Through trauma, sometimes a child may create multiple ego personalities to cope with uncomfortable or unsafe situations. Because of this programming, we abandon ourselves, our wants, desires, and needs. We begin to lose our sense of authenticity and true nature. We may become more prone to being taken advantage of and failing to create healthy boundaries. Once we begin healing the inner child, we eventually create healthy boundaries, developing a stronger sense of self and creating a path to a more empowered and enlightened self.
Maturing the child
Healing the Inner Child Hypnotherapy in Sydney can help create that space for yourself as you integrate that true sense of self back into the present. When dealing with trauma as a child, we didn’t have a developed mind to process the complex traumas. The child had not matured healthily in the past, so when the child becomes an adult, a mature level of brain activity and awareness is required to process unresolved issues trapped within the person’s physiology.
When healing in therapy, we are transmuting and transforming the way we see the experience with our developed adult awareness

the authentic self
Moving back into our true inner self
In Childhood Trauma, sometimes we suppress these experiences deep within 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’, reaching out to the child self, and allowing the child to feel safe and secure. Giving the child a place to heal is what needs to happen. Reassuring the child that he or she is loved, respected, and cared for, gives the child a place to vent their frustrations. The child can begin the process of letting go and healing.
Essentially, the adult self is taking on the role of the 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. Ongoing attention and inner dialogue help the child mature and grow. In other words, there is plenty of self-help work that’s needed by the client, who becomes the carer 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. Using deep mindfulness and relaxation, is the process of becoming more aware of what the child is experiencing, offering the child a hand of understanding through the wisdom of the adult self.
Once the adult wisdom of understanding begins the process of kindness and compassion towards the child, provides the child a sense of security. The child can then let go of the pain and anger held deep within the shadows of the mind.
The unconscious defence mechanisms suppress these feelings to protect the welfare of the individual, in other words, the child’s aspect of the self will always go with what is familiar rather than do something outside of its comfort zone. The child’s growth hasn’t matured properly. Think of the child as a part of the 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 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 adult awareness. Think of this process as a trade-off. 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 will re-learn to honour the 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 into the present adult awareness.
The Mechanics of Inner Child Healing
The first step
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 within the self. Building not judgemental support structures through friends, family, or any positive influences will help strengthen the adult for the child’s healing. Experiencing the state of being strong and capable the child needs to be established.
The second stage is to explore the origins of the feeling states and behaviour through exploring beliefs, thoughts, and patterns. Dialogue with the child needs to happen, building trust and showing the child love, and support, creating a space for the child to be heard. The child may not understand what has happened to them. Explaining and reframing beliefs with truth with 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 cognitively understand, so clearing things up helps the child let go.
The third stage is to continue to support and correct using the right language. 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 and the higher self are responsible for correcting misconceptions and maturing the child as an adult.
The child wants to be heard
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 re-joined 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 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 inspiring people whom he/she can look up to, but making sure that the child is not finding external validation from others. 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 cannot be found outside of the self. Before any human being can love another, the person needs to generate love, respect, and self-regulating energy from within so they can project love outwards into the world.
The fourth stage of integration
The fourth stage is the process of integrating the child within and the adult self 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 adult 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 self.
This aspect of the self can install new voices of love and care, overriding shameful parental voices from the past. The adult self 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 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 where they can be creative. It’s important to know that when healing in this therapy, it’s always good to remove the child from the space where 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 self and other people whom the child may have trusted, respected, and felt safe around. In this place of safety, the children can explore themselves through creativity, authentic expression, and maturity, whereas in the historical past, they may not have been able to 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 comes from. But eventually and most often, the trauma stems from childhood, where the programming took place. The body will remember the trauma.
The landscape of our shadow unconscious
Deep within your unconscious mind, this awareness is waiting to be activated. Imagine Inner Child Hypnotherapy as the key to the door of the unconscious mind. 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, your consciousness will experience the deep ‘Theta Brain wave’ state where your unconscious mind is doing its work to protect and nurture you.
Here we will move through the deeper landscape of your Childhood feeling states, bridging your present adult wisdom, and marrying this with your future aspirations. Once we move forward, we can project that inner child into the future as it 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 now.
