Sports Enhancement Hypnosis at Orlando Hypnotherapy Clinic

Sports Enhancement Hypnosis helps athletes to remove external pressures and anxiety.

Mental training is being increasingly recognized as an integral component of athletes’ training. Relying solely on skills and craftsmanship has become inadequate in the field of competitive sports, where athletes are continually exposed to external pressures and anxiety. Hypnosis helps most athletes to completely remove any outside interference such as noise, pressures and anxiety at will and enter entirely into the “zone”.

Sport psychology essentially pertains to understanding:

• what motivates athletes
• how to enable athletes to regulate their thoughts accordingly

With such mental training exercises, sports psychology helps to:

• manage stress and arousal states
• optimize performance levels

Hypnosis has been used in sport for at least the last 50 years, and has recently seen a renewed  interest from both the research community and sports participants. Numerous well-known sportspeople have used hypnosis in the past, including boxers Frank Bruno, Steve Collins and Nigel Benn, former England cricket captain Mike Brearley, athlete Iwan Thomas, and golfer Ian Woosnam.

More recently, there have been a number of high profile sportspeople who have used hypnosis, including ASP Tour surfer Russell Winter, and Beijing Olympic champions Vince Hancock (Olympic Skeet) and Steve Hooker (Pole Vault). Hypnosis is also used in team settings, with Crystal Palace and Swindon Town employing the services of a hypnotherapist.

The mind-body connection has immense power. It can make or break an athlete’s performance.

Peak performance is achieved when mental training is effective. Getting started is always slightly difficult because you feel uncertain when you begin any new endeavor.

Try to:

• Overcome the fear of failure.
• Be open to taking responsibility if you make mistakes or miss your goal.
• Focus on the process instead of the outcomes.
• Analyze the best performance.
• Use the findings to steer present actions.
• Develop routines to be ‘in the zone’ before a game to maintain focus and block distractions.

Remember, mental training is not just about the game. It is also about optimizing workout and practice sessions.
