When Is a Child Being Bullied at School?

Hypnosis is a tool to increase confidence as a way of reducing being bullied at school. Hypnosis is 100% natural and prescription-free.

Being bullied is the intentional and repetitious aggressive behavior to undermine, embarrass or distress someone. Some bullying seems petty and ‘something to get over’ or ‘part of life,’ but the behavior when used repetitiously can become unbearable.  You’re being bullied when you’ve expressed a limit and the bully keeps invading that limit over and over again.  Different people have different limits, but we all deserve to have them respected.

Types of Bullying

• Denying the ability to feel safe and secure – a bully will try to block feelings of safety, creating a sense that anything could happen at anytime if you do not give into their demands.

Denying connections with others through healthy relationships – a bully will try to block the ability to form relationships often by ostracizing and criticizing the target of the bullying to make them appear to be unappealing.

• Denying a sense of status and achievement – a bully may take credit for your work or undermine what you’ve done to make your work or achievement(s) appear inadequate. The bully usually is highly critical of everything you do, uses humiliation and tries to make you feel like things are ‘your fault’ if you can’t cope.

Who Can Be Bullied and Why Do They Do It?

Just about anyone can but some bullies target the weak in an attempt to make themselves appear stronger.  Bullies typically treat others badly because they have low self-esteem and low self-love.  Bullies only respond to self confidence where the person being bullied transforms into an overwhelming force that their words cannot penetrate.

The profile of a typical bullying target includes:

• Conscientious – a hardworking person can be a target because you can be perceived as the one that sets the standard too high for a bully who is lazy or incompetent in comparison.
• Sensitive – if you are perceived as sensitive the bully will feel you have more buttons to press
• Popular and/or attractive – jealousy causes bullying
• Quiet – if you keep your head down, the bully may see you as weak
• Witness to an event – a bully will try to ‘keep you in your right place’ so you do not disclose information that you witnessed
• Someone who is just simply in the wrong place at the wrong time

Hypnosis Helps Address Bullying at School

Hypnosis is used as a tool to build your confidence — confidence reduces bullying.  In the hypnotic state (also called ‘trace’) we work with you to build a solid wall of confidence and foundation of who you are.  We will show you how your current state is attracting the bully and how you can change that state to keep the bully away from you in a non-violent way.

School years are meant to be enjoyable and filled with positive growth, happiness and good memories. Hypnosis helps reduce bullying and increase success at school — both academically and socially. Your child can feel better naturally using the power of his/her mind – hypnosis opens new doors for so many students each year.

Hypnosis is proven more effective than traditional counseling

In a study in American Health Magazine, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have a 93% success rate compared with lower results from other methods of therapy which require far more sessions.  Click here to learn more about hypnosis and its high success rate.
