How can hypnotherapy help with sports performance?


Focus on success and strategy

You might be highly confident in your ability to perform but feel that something is still missing. Some athletes describe this as a ‘winning edge’ or being in the ‘zone’.

Successful athletes are often able to control their state of mind, so they have a psychological advantage, which prevents them from underperforming or giving in to their nerves. This means they can become totally absorbed in what they are doing, barely noticing outside distractions when performing at their best.

Hypnosis can often help individuals access the ‘zone’ and engage an athlete’s mind in a positive way to help them focus on their goals and achieve them.

Reinforce self-belief

Being able to control negative thoughts and emotions is the basis of sports psychology. Hypnotherapy can help to remove negative thoughts or beliefs from your subconscious mind, replacing these with feelings of confidence and self-belief.

What is sports hypnosis?


Sports hypnosis incorporates cognitive and sports science methodologies, overlapping with areas such as biomechanics, nutrition, physiology and sports psychology to help athletes overcome self-doubt and perform to the highest level.

The relaxation techniques incorporated in hypnosis may also help to control anxiety and manage stress.
