Enhance Sports Performance with Hypnotherapy. To be a successful sportsperson it is important to maintain high levels of physical fitness as well as sharp mental focus. In addition, it is essential to control anxiety levels before and during the game. In sports this experience is known as “Ideal Performing State” or “Being in the Zone”.
Research shows that most internal talk is self-defeating and negative. This impacts our beliefs and the ability to create and maintain a heightened state of effective performance.
Many times past negative experience of the game plays on our mind and no matter how hard we try, we can’t seem to get out of our head. Thoughts are powerful potential energy that instantaneously affects every cell of our body by chemical changes and electrical charges. Our subconscious mind is much more powerful than our conscious mind. It is the driving force behind any performance. Any changes at the level of the subconscious, no matter how small, will create immediate results in our performance levels.
How Can Hypnosis Help You Enhance Your Sports Performance?
Hypnosis has been used by many successful athletes and sports people like Tiger Woods, Steve Collins, Jimmy Connors, Ken Norton and Jack Nicklaus. The subconscious mind can’t distinguish between real experiences and imagined experiences. In a mental coaching session, a cricketer will visualize his perfect square-cut again and again, or a tennis player will visualize his killer serve repeatedly. This is one of the reasons why hypnotherapy is so powerful in improving the game many folds. Under a hypnotic trance, which brings mind and body in perfect harmonious balance, an athlete or sportsperson, is guided by the therapist to use his imagination to visualize the perfect game and a positive outcome over and over again. Once it has been subconsciously experienced it becomes almost automatic to create and maintain the desired high performance state during the real game.
Hypnotherapy can support you as a sportsperson/athlete to :
- Intensify your motivation
- Release performance anxiety
- Change limiting beliefs
- Reframe past negative experience
- Enhance self confidence
- Visualize positive, winning outcomes
- Increase concentration and focus
- Eliminate any negative self-talk
- Get in touch with an inner resource and subconsciously make it available during the game.

While tennis players and cricketers have been known to use hypnotherapy, even long distance runners and marathoners are now using this as a safe and effective tool to enhance their performance.
