Hi, I am currently working with a teenager that feels that he has nothing to contribute to life, that he is unattractive, and plain, I have been working on his self worth and self confidence, can anyone please share any dynamic scripts that are age related to teenagers.
I had success by guiding the teenager to a special place, (resource) - to a moment in time when he/she spontaneously had fun. I suggest that this moment at that place only exist, to please him/her therefore everything is possible and opportunities are limitless. I also suggest that that moment in time could be of his/her own inner making…, where he/she can be comfortable, deeply relaxed, safe and He/she could experience the expected outcome from the pre-talk. Or it can be a moment of a pleasant memory… It can be a fantasy, a dream… or he/she can just make it up... I count him/her into that moment and then guide him/her towards exploring the resource before establishing a special place which is made tangible a safety bubble added and then anchored.
I would then suggest a "perfect you" with suggestions like "Remember when you were a little kid and there were no limits to your imagination...." and I'll use information from the pre-talk and suggest that he/she is completely free again to make this place perfect...
and suggest that he/she let nothing hold him/her back...
he/she can create mountains of clouds or streams of pleasure, or, if he/she wish to, flying fish or swimming butterflies, and urge him/her to go ahead because this is his/her place of perfection. A place of absolute perfection just right for him/her, where there is limitless potential, and everything is possible.
This then called the special or the perfect place. The person can then create a safety bubble made up of various bubbles around it where after I use a confidence/self-esteem booster script; Future integration; and a post-hypnotic suggestion that every time he/she taps into the resourceful anchor it becomes easier and easier to connect strongly with the resource state and find more and more inner-strength and inner-wisdom that he/she is safe en very able to be the best he/she wants to be...
This works very well for me and the person enjoys the experience tremendously.
Hope this may be helpful.
