Hypnotherapy allows you to remove the triggers and negative responses that can be encountered due to pre-competition nerves or self-belief issues. Through simple relaxation and various other techniques, you can become focused on what you really want to achieve.
Taking part in any sport at a competitive level involves a great deal of physical control and mental concentration. It is now accepted that hypnosis can provide both of these.
Coaches and managers the world over are all aware that the difference between a confident athlete and one in doubt is recognisably profound. “Sportsmen can do better than they think……..but only when they think they can do better.” Hypnotherapy can help you to be the best you possibly can be.
Glenn Catley, British Middleweight Champion in January 1998 and then W.B.C .Super Middleweight World Champion in 2000, puts his success down to the benefits of Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. He said “On the night I boxed Neville Brown, I felt like I could have beaten three Mike Tyson’s in the same night. ……Hypnotherapy in sport is becoming more recognised and people are seeing its benefits. It’s phenomenal how it benefited me”.
Hypnotherapy has been used by World Champions and amateurs alike, enabling them to fulfil their true potential. In the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, the Russian team took no less than 11 hypnotherapists – so that shows how long it’s been around in the sporting world!
So whether you wish to improve your running times, your aim, your motivation or concentration either for competition or simply enjoyment you’ll find hypnosis a good coach!
