    I have a four year old little girl who's afraid to poop because she thinks it hurts and in result, she gets very 'backed up' and experiences pain and still will not go.  We have to take her to the doctor to get flushed every so often.  Sometimes she goes weeks at a time without going.  I'm afraid she's going to get hurt internally if something isn't done.  Any suggestions as to how PSTEC may be able to help?  Would I be able to do anything on my own with PSTEC to help her, or would I need to take her to a specialist? 

    Thank you!

    In theory if she uses the click tracks while thinking of going to the toilet and grabbing onto the fear of pain then she can eliminate the fear. You probably could do it on your own, but I'd guess a specialist would always be better and the process more efficient. If you've got the money to spend, then I'd suggest your daughters health is the best thing to spend it on without delay.

    Thanks Oz…

    Colin…

    For the short run…

    As always, with medical issues,
    be sure to consult with your medical professional.

    • PSTEC Click Tracks are difficult for small children because of the difficulty they have in concentrating.  While they are not recommended for children because of this, here are some tips for using PSTEC with children:

    • In talking with Mike Wells in the past (PSTEC practitioner who has specialized in working successfully with children, on site, in a school setting), he found that using the CT's with very young ones was difficult and he used more hypnosis and suggestion in addressing the children's issues.

      Be careful about finding a competent hypnotherapist in working with your daughter… be sure they are very experienced in working with children.

      Long term…

      In this type of work, again once medical causes are addressed, it's about identifying the stressor(s) in her life and helping her to understand how to perceive life … how to shift that perception and, as a parent, you are in a position to help her do that.  In other words, you can help her shift her subconscious Mind Model as it still is developing to one that is more empowering and you do that through your language and talking to her subconscious.

      As a parent, I believe, learning, in depth, Tim's methods of language, can only be beneficial in “mentoring” your daughter and you have an incredible opportunity to do that at her age.  But, you know what?  It's never too late because if you give her Unconditional Love and Kindness in your mentoring… in your language to her sub, she will always be coming to you to help her because you have the opportunity to become the most incredible resource in her life.

      Approach the PSTEC Tutorials and Tools as a therapist or practitioner in two ways:

      1. For yourself … be sure to Click Track (CT) your own personal fears…
        our children take a large majority of their queues from us.  Shift your own MM to be the most empowered one possible and you will see your effect on hers as well.

        Also, be sure to use PSTEC Positive on the beliefs associated with the issue for your daughter.

      2. For her … again, you can be a great resource now and as she grows… take the time.  It's worth it … you're worth it!!  And, of course, your little girl is worth it.  :)

    I would like to add emphasis to everything Jeff has said. I don't think it is feasible to use PSTEC with your daughter as it's too big an ask to get her to concentrate and follow Tim's instructions.

    I clearly can see the benefit of you clearing your own thoughts and emotions about what is happening with your daughter so that you can be calm and relaxed about this issue at all times – the unconditional positive regard that enables our children to flourish and thrive.

    I've had some experience working with children as young as 8 and 9 year old with Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) via 'Tappy Bear'  (which I'm not sure are sold any more). The teddy bear has the tapping points on it and it becomes a game for the child who can talk and express their fears and concerns through the bear. It feels very safe for them.

    It sounds as though you are doing your very best and getting the right medical advice too. Your on-going situation obviously brings your daughter a lot of attention (even if linked to her discomfort) so again it's important to be clear yourself so that you can deal with this is a non-judgemental and open way.
