Hypnotherapy for enhanced sports performance
“Competitive golf is played mainly on a five-and-a-half-inch course…the space between your ears.” Bob Jones, American golfer, considered by many as the best golfer in the history of the game.
Even the greatest athletes can be held back by their mental state. There are many, many examples of top atheletes failing to achieve their expected result and putting it down to what was going on in their head on that time and day. Indeed, Simone Biles withdrew from five of her six finals in the Tokyo Olympics 2020 due to issues with her mental state. Those training at any level, from weekend visits to the gym to elite athletes in any sport know the power of the mind, which is why sports performance hypnosis can be incredibly effective.
Elite sporting legends such as Nigel Benn, Tiger Woods, Roger Black and Andy Cole have used hypnosis to get into the state of mind of being able to achieve complete control of their performance when it counts.
Whether you are suffering from a sudden downturn in your performance, or want to step up to the next level, ensuring your mind is as perfectly honed to win as your body is of utmost importance. Hypnotherapy to enhance sports performance is a recognised tool for both professional and amateur athletes, for adults and children.
Thousands of sportspeople have recognised how hugely effective sports performance hypnosis is, in focusing your mind and locking out negative thoughts about your performance.
Hypnotherapy for sports performance can help you relax, remove anxieties and boost confidence. Visualisation – of winning, of perfecting techniques – can help tune your mind for success. The brain may be a complex thing, but it can’t tell the difference between doing something and imagining it. To paraphrase a famous quote – ‘If you visualise it, it will come.’
Of course, as each person is different, so results will vary from person to person, but overall, sports performance hypnosis can be used to help you keep your composure, ignore distractions, overcome fears and improve your confidence in your ability to succeed.
Sports performance hypnosis will be completely tailored to your individual needs. It is effective for all of the following:
- Confidence building
- Reducing anxiety and stress
- Giving you self belief in attaining your goals
- Increasing focus and concentration
- Positive visualisation
- Overcoming mental blocks
- Mental recovery from injury
- Addressing competition nerves and maximising preparation
