Hypnosis isn't everyone’s cup of tea. However, the majority of people can use it to great effect - you just need to be open to the thought of possible change. There is really no age barrier with hypnotherapy. Children tend to be very receptive to its use as they don’t have as many preconceived ideas as an adult has, but any with an open mind can receive the benefits of a hypnotherapy session.
The only areas of contra-indication for the use of hypnotherapy are for people who suffer from psychotic disorders, have pace makers or use illegal drugs (illegal drug users must be drug free for a minimum of 4 days prior to undergoing a hypnotherapy session in order for it to be effective).
