Focus and Concentration: 10-16 Year-olds (Unabridged)
Written By: Lynda Hudson
Customer Rating :3.7
Audiobook Summary:This is a self-help hypnotherapy recording for children of about 10 - 16 years. In addition to giving suggestions for physical relaxation, Lynda helps students boost their ability to focus and concentrate both through positive suggestions and through the metaphor of using the mind as a touch screen computer. They are instructed to find and delete any negative, unhelpful beliefs about their abilities and then to reprogramme themselves to study with focus and concentration. Then they visualize themselves working confidently and calmly in both classroom and homework settings, surprising and pleasing their teachers, their parents and themselves with their achievements. Lynda uses the power of the child's imagination through the use of relaxation and metaphor where the child is encouraged to mentally act out positive, effective solutions to a problem. Research confirms the success of this approach. The best time to listen is usually as the child relaxes before going to sleep. Listening to the recording should be additional to, and not in place of, any normal bedtime reading or listening. Lynda's gentle, well-modulated, English voice calms, re-assures and encourages as they listen.
