Numerous world-class athletes and sportspeople have used hypnotherapy to help them achieve their full potential in their chosen field. There are three main areas involved with sports performance therapy that we can work on: confidence, motivation and method.
Confidence can sometimes be adversely affected if you have either had a negative experience, or if your general stress levels have increased for some reason. Hypnotherapy will help to restore and improve your confidence so that you feel you can and you will bring out your best performance. We will reduce general stress, as well as teaching you effective ways to remain calm and to relax. If you have had an unpleasant experience that is affecting your performance, we can gently and effectively remove any negative association, so you can return to enjoying your chose sport once again.
Motivation can often wane when we are feeling low, sad or depressed, or sometimes if we have just been out of the game for a while and need help getting back into the swing of training and practicing. Perhaps your new, or enhance training schedule is challenging? With hypnotherapy, you will learn how to increase your motivation levels, to feel more energised and enthusiastic, and to derive more pleasure from working towards your goals.
The power of visual rehearsal cannot be over-stated. When we rehearse something in our mind, we actually improve at it mentally and physically, as well as greatly enhancing our confidence and self-belief that we are able to execute the performance. With hypnotherapy, we can rehearse the method and execution of your performance, working through each move in as much detail as required. We do this while you are in trance, and the mind and body are relaxed and highly suggestible to learning.
