Having spent much of my time at elite level sport I know from personal experience that everything you do effects your performance so as an athlete we do everything we can to eliminate any negative’s from eating right to sleeping well, which is why it’s important for me to look at every aspect of an athletes life.  If you are a person that finds it difficult to sleep, improving this could help you to train more consistently, improving your performance. Similarly if you are eating the wrong foods, or excessively control food intake especially but not limited to weight controlled sports this can have a huge impact on your performance.  If you fall into that category it is important to seek advice and support from a qualified sports nationalist alongside working with your sports hypnotist. 

A sports coach will help you with your programme to become fitter, stronger and more technical, all this is essential to your performance.  Working with a sports hypnotist and mind coach can help you to reframe your psychology, enhancing your mind to work at its best to push your body limits both in training and during competition.

Developing Athlete Confidence

Sport can be brutal, and from time to time its easy for an athletes confidence to be knocked.  That alongside the fact that learning new skills is a process from not having any idea how to do it right through to it becoming second nature.  Some skills can be challenging at times at athletes can often begin to wonder if they will ever master it.

Hypnosis can provide positive suggestion to boost confidence whilst also working through the areas they need to in order to feel more confident and self assured.

Developing Confidence for Media

Media interviews can become a reality overnight for some athletes.  While successful athletes feel comfortable and in control within their sports setting this is not always the case when it comes to media attention.
