Nocturnal Enuresis or Bed Wetting, is an anxiety disorder that I regularly treat at Your Positive Change - Hypnotherapy Durham. Wetting the bed during childhood is so common that it almost feels like a rite of passage. However, while most of us can leave those damp nighttime disruptions behind in childhood, wetting the bed at night affects about 1 person in 100 throughout adult life.


Not only can this problem send your dry cleaning bills through the roof, but it can also limit you in terms of relationships, holidays, business trips, and any activities away from home.


Furthermore, even though it’s called “nocturnal enuresis”, it can actually happen at any time you are asleep – for example, if you doze off during a train journey.


Waking up in an empty carriage, with a sodden copy of The Times on your lap and a number of hastily vacated seats around you, is a million times more embarrassing than going to see a Hypnotherapist, who can help with the situation.

Enuresis (bedwetting) can be a very distressing condition for both sufferers and their loved ones. Fortunately, hypnotherapy can often help relax the client, provided the patient is well motivated. It is important when addressing this problem that the term bedwetting or wet beds is avoided, as this focuses the mind on those two words - wet and bed - more preferable is to speak positively using the term ‘dry bed.’

(i.e. instead of saying, tonight you won’t wet the bed you would say, tonight you will have a dry bed), eventually the idea of dry beds becomes an attractive one.


Enuresis ( Bed Wetting ) can usually be conquered in a remarkably brief period of time using Hypnotherapy - often in as little as One or Two sessions , and you can return to the freedom of a life lived without the anxiety and fear that has governed it for so long.

Ready to Remove Your Fear/Phobia?


Firstly, we are only born with two Fears/Phobias - The Fear of Loud Noises, and The Fear of Falling, all of the others are self created/learned, these can't be inherited from a previous generation, although they can be learned. All you need to do is encounter something of a negative nature, maybe you heard it, saw it, thought of it(yes thought of it), or even felt it!! Your mind can increase the intensity, magnify or amplify it, really blow the whole incident out of proportion, at this point in now becomes a fear/phobia/anxiety. The good news is this can be overcome, many like the word 'cured'  and using Hypnosis this can be achieved very quickly.
