Hypnotherapy for Sports
How many times have you told yourself or been told that if only your concentration held then you would have won, performed the right shot, been unaffected by the opponent?
Whether your game is tennis, golf, snooker or any other sport, Hypnosis can be a powerful tool for improvement. Many professional athletes have already benefited from Hypnosis to increase their performance. One of the greats of Golf Jack Nicklaus stated many times that he visualised each and every shot before he even struck the golf ball. It was his belief that he ‘saw’ the perfect setup, swing and shot for each and every stroke in his round. That concentration coupled with his talent enabled him to be one of the most successful players ever.
Sports hypnosis is also useful in enhancing a range of performance areas including:
- Building confidence
- Managing competition anxiety
- Improving motivation
- Maintaining focus
- Preparing for competition
- Improving mental toughness
- Rehearsing techniques
Improve Your Sporting Mindset
Hypnosis cannot turn an average player into a world class superstar, but it can allow the individual to get closer to his or her personal best. By improving your ability to learn and concentrate more effectively, you can become more aware of your strengths and improve your weaknesses.
During hypnosis I will use techniques such as relaxation, guided visualisation, learning self-hypnosis techniques, developing effective pre-competition routines, mental rehearsal to embed physical actions and developing points of focus to improve your overall outlook and self-belief when it comes time to play.
