Bed wetting therapyBed Wetting


Bed wetting in children can be a worrying and frustrating, but it's extremely common for children to accidentally wet the bed during the night. The condition will often resolve itself in time. The medical term for bedwetting is nocturnal enuresis.

Bedwetting usually only becomes a concern in children who are five years of age or over and who are wetting the bed at least twice a week.

bed wettingAlthough bedwetting doesn't pose a threat to a child’s physical health, it can have a considerable psychological impact on their self-esteem and confidence, particularly in older children.

There's no single approach to treating bedwetting, but in most cases the recommended plan is to first try a combination of self-help techniques, such as restricting the amount of liquid your child drinks in the evening (avoid drinks with caffeine in them, such as cola, because caffeine encourages the production of urine).   

Bed-wetting is not just a childhood condition. Some people wet the bed all their lives. Others become dry during childhood, but later start wetting the bed again in adulthood. Bedwetting affects different people in different ways. The psychological problems of coping with wet bedding, even at home can be considerable, especially if you are hiding the problem from your partner or family. You may find that you worry about staying away for the night, going on holiday or business trips, going to college or moving away from home. You may find you don't want to get into a relationship in case your new partner finds out. Stress and anxiety are contributing factors.

The Therapy: The presenting issue will be dealt with in a relaxed initial consultation which will allow for all aspects of the therapeutic process to be discussed and all questions answered openly, fully and confidentially.
