Sports Performance . Enhancement
Elite athletes or Weekend Warriors, are often determined to find anything that will give them an edge over their competition, as well as help them perform optimally.
Big shout out to the beautiful Lynne from Phoenix Hypnotherapy. Lynne is one of my sponsors as my Sports Performance and Mindset coach, the time she has given me has helped me a huge amount in the little time we've been working together which has also led to myself winning 2 titles. For anything to do with mindset, hypnotherapy and reiki healing, just to name a few things. Lynne's your lady! Brad, (Muay Thai)
Pain and/or Injuries stopping you from training and competing?
Another way that hypnosis can help competitive athletes is in dealing with pain and injuries. Learning to dissociate from the pain can help them better cope with it and perform in spite of it. Relaxation methods can also be particularly helpful when it comes to managing pain which is a part of most sports.
Hypnosis can also help athletes recover more quickly from a sports injury. By accelerating the recovery time the athlete can return to practice and competition more quickly, which can be very important for athletes competing at the highest levels.
EMDR is a proven, rapidly effective method of clearing extreme pain and injuries in conjunction with physical therapies if required.
I can help you attain higher levels of performance in whatever sport you play or compete in. Athletes who train and give 110% to their nutrition and commitment to their chosen field can often suffer fear of failure and not even participate, or be blocked by self-sabotage. I have proven techniques and track record of clearing these and the athlete/competitor moving on to achieve personal bests and National Championships.
*Please be reassured:
Nobody can ever be hypnotised against their will and even when hypnotised, people still remain in complete control of any suggestions given.
The whole goal of clinical hypnosis is to take back control that has been lost and which has therefore resulted in the symptom or problem.
It is estimated that approximately 85% of people of all age groups will readily respond to hypnosis.
Hypnosis and imagery have been utilised by many to improve their performance. Hypnosis, in conjunction with my other tools such as Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), Eye Movement Desensitisation Reprocessing (EMDR), Mindfulness and Time Line Therapy, has proven to be effective in bringing about positive change, developing new habits and behaviours, and releasing unhealthy or unproductive emotions, habits and behaviours.
Since the unconscious mind is really the driving force between most of our beliefs and behaviours, it makes sense that a technique which elicits change at the unconscious level can be highly effective. Hypnotherapy is such a technique.
Hypnotherapy can help an athlete overcome issues of self-doubt which may be keeping him/her from moving to the next level. It can help an athlete hone skills, fine-tune a technique, and have a level of self-belief and confidence which will enable them to excel beyond what he/she may have previously thought possible.
The Clinical Hypnotherapy and other modalities offered through this treatment plan, can help an athlete overcome performance anxiety or pre-game jitters which can make the difference between winning a gold medal and coming in 5th place.
Tiger Woods is an excellent example of an incredible athlete who has used hypnosis to achieve a phenomenal level of success in golf. He has reportedly been utilizing powerful self-hypnosis techniques since his early teens. Not only has he used it to visualize every swing and stroke in his mind before carefully executing it on the course, he also uses it to “get in the zone”.
Athletes will often use imagery and visualisation just before their event to achieve their desired goal. By closing their eyes and focusing on achieving their goal, they can improve their performance. Once they have pictured it in their mind they then proceed to do it. Utilizing this technique is especially beneficial when the sport requires a brief burst of energy.
