The role of hypnosis in sport

In sport, there is a long tradition of using hypnosis to dramatically increase performance. Almost all top athletes today use some form of hypnosis as part of their mental training. Hypnosis works directly with the subconscious mind to bring about change and is highly effective in this field.

Hypnotherapy can help you:

  • Increase endurance
  • Remove self-doubt or negative thinking
  • Alleviate pre-competition nerves
  • Change your perception of what is possible and programme-in success
  • Develop razor-sharp focus
  • Build mental stamina
  • Improve your technique
  • Increase your motivation
  • Become more confident
  • Change unwanted behaviours: lose/gain weight, stop smoking, reduce alcohol, etc.

What makes a winner

Famous golfers use self-hypnosis to visualise every swing and stroke in their mind before carefully executing them on the course. They also use self-hypnosis to “get in the zone”, e.g. performing automatically, without thinking and trying -this is when performance just flows, exceeding all expectations.

Pain and injury

Hypnosis can help competitive athletes deal with pain and injuries. Learning to dissociate from pain can help you cope with it better and perform in spite of it. Hypnosis can also help athletes recover more quickly from an injury and return to practice and competition sooner.

Time distortion

When your mind is very focussed, you go into trance and time slows down (similar to when you experience a life-threatening incident). Top sportspeople take plenty of time to get into position and play their shots. What they’re doing is slowing down their perception of time. This can be taught through hypnosis.
