Hypnotherapy for Sports Performance

Hypnotherapy for sports performanceWhile there’s no alternative for fitness and technical training, it’s often mental factors that separate a successful performance from an unsuccessful one.

Hypnotherapy can enhance performance by creating a relaxed and confident state of mind and using positive imagery focussed on dealing with challenges, setbacks and unexpected events in the course of achieving goals.

Many people regularly do well in practice, but, when the pressure’s on in a competitive situation, nagging doubts, negative thoughts and even anxiety can inhibit their performance. Usually, the cause is stored deep in our subconscious minds and only manifests itself in stressful situations.

Hypnosis is a highly effective tool for improving performance because it a) allows direct access to the subconscious and b) utilises proven techniques to quickly and safely:

  • Replace negative thoughts/emotions with positive responses
  • Allow mental rehearsal and visualisation 
  • Change bad habits and unwanted behaviours
  • Find solutions to problems
  • Build confidence
  • Relieve stress

Results Hypnosis has helped a wide range of athletes achieve their goals including runners, triathletes, golfers, tennis players, hockey players and footballers.
