Improve Your Performance and Achieve your Highest Potential
What separates a good performer from a true champion? The mind. You can formulate a plan to be at your very best, train hard, eat right. However, without the right mindset, you will never perform to your true potential. If you have doubt or fear or are stuck in a slump, Sports Hypnosis can help you quickly eliminate the mental blocks that are holding you back and let you (re-)discover your best athlete.
Achieving your best with sports hypnosis
Did you know that many athletes use sports hypnosis to gain that extra "edge" in their athletic performance? Often the results are so impressive that coaches themselves are thrilled. Top athletes competing in college sports and at the professional level have all accepted the power of hypnosis to enable the competitors to perform at a higher level and to fully achieve their athletic potential.
Today, many Olympic athletes in varied sports regularly incorporate hypnotic techniques into their training programs. At the 2008 and 2012 Olympics, the shooters who won Gold Medals for the U.S. all worked with a hypnotherapist. Tiger Woods began seeing Jay Brunza at the age of 13 for hypnosis and mental training. Phil Mickelson was extensively trained by mental coach and hypnotherapist Dean Reinmuth. In baseball, Nolan Ryan, George Brett, Maury Wills, Don Sutton, Mark McGwire all used sports hypnosis to be able to relax and maximize their focus during their games.
The role of the mind in achieving excellence
Every one knows that physical training is a key to performing well in sports. However, it is now becoming more and more accepted that your state of mind is of primary importance to excel and fulfill your natural potential in your sport of choice. Some experts in the field of sports training have even gone so far as to assert that for a top athlete, 80% of his success is determined by the state of his mind. Even for the weekend athlete, visualization and mental rehearsal are key elements in getting you to perform at your best.
The great Jack Nicklaus said: “I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. First I see the ball where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes, and I see the ball going there; its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is a sort of fade-out, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images into reality.”
With hypnosis, the resulting effects from the use of these techniques are tremendously amplified. During the mental rehearsal of a peak performance, the nervous system performs as if the physical activity was actually taking place. In addition, rehearsal and visualizations of an excellent performance convince the subconscious mind that the actual event can also be accomplished at that high level, and thus creates within the athlete's mind the confidence that is essential for a peak performance.
Not only can the power of hypnosis be utilized by the world’s top athletes, but it can be employed by anyone seeking to improve their performance at any level of competition. Sports hypnosis sessions enable to completely change limiting beliefs and turn off self-talk and negative thoughts that block you from performing at your ultimate peak. In addition, an occasional poor performance will not make you subject to any feelings of frustration or discouragement.
Last but not least, competing can create tremendous anxiety and fear of failure, which will all be mitigated by sports hypnosis. You will learn how to create mind states that enable you to avoid being affected by any mental negative factors during your preparation and training for the event, and during the actual sport event itself.
Without a doubt, it is the mind that determines the outcome of our performance and behavior. Working with me, you will benefit from multiple psychological principles and cutting edge mental techniques specifically tailored for you and your sport.
In-person office sessions are available Monday-Saturday 9am to 8pm. I also do numerous hypnosis sessions for athletes worldwide by Skype with great success.
I normally take my athletes through a 5 to 10 session protocol. In that process, most importantly, we clear all of the mental baggage that interferes with achieving peak performance: useless limiting beliefs, faulty programs, old hurts/injuries, etc.
In addition, the athlete learns: intention, self-empowerment, thought control, emotional mastery, self-hypnosis, and how to increase self-confidence. Those skills develop mental toughness and lead athletes to the gateway of "the zone".
When we are through, the athlete is able to keep him/herself clear, continue to build confidence with these tools and apply it all to other areas of life. I am most proud that this training helps a lot of young athletes build solid life skills through sport.
