Hypnosis has been used by many athletes to improve performances. Hypnosis can help any athlete overcome barriers to their performance, fine tune the skills nedded to succeed, banish self doubt and increase self belief, which can help propel them to the next level of performance.
Athletes often use imagery and visualisation techniques before their event, to help them achieved their desired goal. Of course, these same techniques can be used by anyone who wants any type of improvement in their chosen sport. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from these techniques.
Being able to control negative thoughts and emotions is the cornerstone of sports psychology and this state can be achieved through learning hypnosis skills. Elite athletes often talk of being “in the zone.” Hypnosis can help you access “the zone.”
If we are capable of imagining a result, then we are capable of creating that result. This is done through the power of our minds. The brain can’t distinguish between imagining doing something and doing something, that’s why visualising can be such a powerful tool.
The benefits of hypnotherapy in increasing sports performance
Whether your sport is golf, athletics, swimming, cricket or whatever you participate in, hypnotherapy can help with your performance. This is done by overcoming fears and negative beliefs and self talk.
As these beliefs and patterns are stored in our unconscious minds, these can be released, then replaced by much more focused and empowering ones by the practice of hypnotic techniques and visualisation methods.
Hypnosis can help you achieve a higher level of performance in whatever sport you are participating in, regardless of your level of mastery, you can always improve with the use of some hypnotic techniques. Many athletes use hypnosis to
- reinforce and clarify their goals
- increase self belief, confidence and motivation
- deal with nerves and competition stress
- promote healing from injuries.
It’s clear that hypnosis can be a highly effective performance enhancing technique.
