Whether you are training for a marathon, a boxing match or cycling for pleasure, Hypnotherapy can really help you to focus your mind on what you need to do in order to achieve better results and even become a champion.
Believe it or not, sports performance has more to do with your mental ability than it does with your physical ability. I know that it may sound like a strange concept, but thousands of sports people have already recognised that their positive mental state most definitely has a positive effect on their sports performance.
So it will be no surprise to hear that hypnosis has been used for many years to help professional athletes enhance their natural ability. Professional Boxer and former World Champion in the Super Middleweight class Glenn Catley regularly used hypnosis to help him achieve his dream. Tiger Woods, Professional Golfer has used sports hypnosis since he was 13 to help him calm his mind before his matches. Professional Darts Player Scott Mitchell uses hypnosis to help improve his game. Even Owen Farrell, England Rugby player uses visualisation to help him see the rugby ball going through the posts before he kicks the ball. These, of course are just a few examples of sports-people who use hypnotherapy but, of course, there are many, many more, the list is endless.
Hypnotherapy can improve and enhance an individual’s mental attitude by helping them to relax, removing anxieties and boosting confidence. Because the brain can’t distinguish between imagination and reality, by visualising yourself doing something or winning a competition, you can help tune your mind for success.
If the human mind is capable of imagining something, then it's capable of making it happen.
