Self hypnosis helps teenagers.

Self hypnosis could be used as a way for teenagers to overcome problems of anxiety and depression, it was revealed yesterday.

A study looked at secondary school pupils who had undergone treatment at the Hampshire Hypnotherapy Centre to combat anxiety related problems.

The centre, which has been running for six years, applies psychology with hypnotherapy and was the focus of doctoral research at the University College London.

David Byron, a senior specialist educational psychologist for Hampshire County Council, studied the ten pupils at the centre along with 10 others being taught more traditional relaxation techniques.

He found that while both approaches helped reduce anxiety, hypnotherapy seemed to produce greater gains as well as reducing feelings of

hopelessness.
