Hypnosis for ADD and ADHD

Attention Deficit Disorder, or ADD, is a challenge faced by both children and adults. 
ADHD includes symptoms of distractability with hyperactivity or impulsivity.

Quite often a child who has a decreased attention span when listening or is disruptive in the classroom, is given the label of having ADD-Attention Deficit Disorder or ADHD-Attention Deficit and Hyperactivity Disorder. Parents often feel they have no other choice, but to have the child placed on medication.

Adults may be diagnosed formally with ADD or ADHD, or may just feel these types of symptoms and be frustrated with the impact on their business, personal and social lives.

 Hypnosis has been found to be very beneficial for ADD/ADHD in both children and adults.

Some symptoms of the inattentive type of ADD in children and adults include:  Hypnosis for child ADD
