Nothing annoys me more than reading about the multitude of bells and whistles and rubber pants to combat bed wetting. As a former champion bed wetter myself.....I did say former.....I have first hand knowledge of the power of anxiety and the role it plays in bed wetting. As part of my post graduate Psychotherapy course I came across a technique called the Magic Garden which I adapted for my young clients with dyslexia and/or learning difficulties. Quickly realising the part anxiety plays in disrupting the learning process I adapted the Magic Garden for the under 12s and the Sound of Calm hypnosis technique (now The Study Relaxer) for the over 12s.
I soon had parents joyously telling me their son had stopped bedwetting since playing the Magic Garden (it's usually boys) and that all children with nightmares and even sleepwalking were improving rapidly as their anxiety was calmed.
So parents, if your child wets the bed, it's not because they have a 'weak bladder' nor is it because they 'drink too much late at night'. They are anxious and they need psychotherapeutic intervention or TIME to grow out of it if you prefer (I know which they would prefer). A week to 10 days of playing the Magic Garden story (15 minutes) will cure their bedwetting and vastly reduce their nightmares and any sleepwalking.
The site is: www.edinburghtechniques.co.uk
Smaller, sharper versions of the Edinburgh Techniques are being written as we speak, the first of which, CONQUER SPELLING, appeared on Amazon yesterday, March 13th and on Smashwords today, Wednesday 14th. Amazon is specialising in the Kindle market whereas Smashwords has the techniques in various forms.
The eBook differs not only in size but also is colourless and without pictures and jokes, it's more parent/teacher orientated whereas the original techniques are more child centred. The price is much cheaper too £2.58 and $2.99

I finished my work with my 14 year old from North Carolina on Feb 29th. I used the Study Relaxer Technique with him which he found was effortless. He was a very good subject and felt he definitely benefited from the technique. He'll now burn the technique he has already bought and downloaded from the Edinburgh Techniques' site onto a disc and play it whenever he has an exam or class tests or indeed if he ever has any unexpected upset.
As for me I can't wait to work with my next student via Skype.
