Are you lacking motivation in your sport? Are yoy letting negative self-talk affect your sporting performance? Perhaps you find it hard to establish positive goals to work towards. Are you recovering from injury or suffering with nerves during competitions?Do you want to be at the top of your game with that winning edge? Well if you answered yes to any of the above, then come and chat to me about the sports performance hypnotherapy in Winchester.
I work with clients in Winchester offering hypnotherapy sessions for increased sports performance by combining hypnotherapy with traditional sports psychology to assist with many common sporting psychological problems. It is particularly effective for building confidence and motivation, managing anxiety or anger, overcoming poor past performances, visualising new or complicated techniques, improving focus and concentration, stopping negative self-talk, returning back to sport from injury and creating training and performance goals. There has been a long history of hypnosis in sport and the evidence shows that it really can give you that winning edge over your opponents. Studies have shown that a common sports hypnotherapy technique such as visualisation is as effective as reality in improving sports performance.
Hypnotherapy for sport continues to be used to date in all disciplines of sport with great names such as Tiger Woods using hypnotherapy techniques to block out distractions and focus on his game.
During a course of sports hypnotherapy sessions, I carry out an initial assessment, identifying your problem areas, reviewing any specific incidents relating to your problem and identifying your current status, strengths and weaknesses and identify your goals. We then agree an action plan to move forward, which includes teaching you self-hypnosis and life skills that can be utilised in all areas of your life, not just your sport. We look at your inner self talk and if suitable carry out a SCAT test (a Sport Competition Anxiety Test). My therapy works well alongside a sports coach – my hypnotherapy sessions work with your mind and a sports coach works with the other elements that make you great!
