Sports Hypnosis and Mind Coaching

Sports hypnosis as a performance enhancing tool is used across a wide range of sports.  It differs from sports psychology in that it works directly with subconscious mind, many theories are adopted in both sports hypnosis and sports psychology.   Its common when working on a conscious level to overthink things, to perhaps find the answer you think your coach or sports psychologist might want to hear.  Working on a subconscious level brings more clarity and you often find answers you would not otherwise have thought of.  Sports hypnosis has many benefits,

  • It can help to reinforce sporting goals

  • It can help athletes to handle nervousness

  • It can help to manage stress in high pressure environments

  • It improves concentration

  • It eliminate distractions

  • It assists in controlling pain

  • It increases performance motivation

  • It improves bodily awareness

  • It can accelerate recovery


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.
