Enuresis (Bed Wetting)

Continence is Key

Nocturnal Enuresis (Bedwetting). Achelois has devised a program of clinical assessment and treatment which incorporates a fully robust physiological approach and includes hypnotherapy in the treatment plan. The package of care will be for up to six months and will comprise physiological and psychosocial treatment, based on clinical findings and NICE guidance. Using hypnotherapy as an additional element will focus not only on becoming dry but on building up self-esteem and reducing guilt and shame.

The program will begin by assessing bladder capacity and the physiological elements of bed wetting. Added into this will be hypnotherapy to unconsciously aid the relationship between bladder and brain; so that they listen to each other. The majority of bedwetting can be easily treated without needing any drug treatment. If however, during the ongoing assessment, it is found that medication may be of benefit then liaison with your GP would be necessary.

As a Specialist Nurse, I ran regular (Nurse Led) Continence clinics, assisted in developing a Continence Policy for the trust I worked for and also lead parent seminars regarding establishing healthy childhood continence. I am aware of recent approaches to treatment and importantly the impact that wetting can have on children and their families. Using hypnotherapy as an additional element will focus not only on becoming dry but on building up self-esteem and reducing guilt and shame.

Extra Ego-strengthening and building self-esteem are fundamental to a happy engaging child. I start by telling them and you, the parent, that bed-wetting is not your fault, it is hard going, frustrating but usually very effectively treated. 

Please get in touch, we really can do this!


Long Term Conditions.

Being diagnosed with a long term illness can often mean coming to terms with change and adapting to certain challenges. Helping a child to feel confident to deal with their illness and accepting these challenges as part of life can make all the difference.

Using CBT based hypnotherapy can help develop healthy coping strategies and a determination that their illness is simply a part of them; not the whole.

Many illnesses have a psychological element, which responds extremely well to hypnotherapy.
