The key to success, no matter what the activity, is practise, practise, practise! It is absolutely vital. However, sometimes, it is simply not possible to practise your skills to the extent you want. Perhaps time is at a premium, or physical injury is an obstacle. You might have lost the ability to focus, or you might even feel that you are suffering from a mental block. .
Over the years, many famous sportsmen and women have turned to hypnotherapy to help them find and stay "in the zone" when it really matters. It has been proven that the sub-conscious mind cannot tell the difference between imagination and reality and when it comes to practising this is great news. It means that even when ill health stops us from physically practising our skills, our mind can visualise us practising and getting it right every time!.
Hypnosis for Sports Performance first came into the public eye when, in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne, the Russian team brought 11 hypnotherapists with them to help them achieve their very best performance. They came away with 98 medals.
Today hypnosis is widely used in many sports, including athletics, golf, tennis and boxing. Glen Cately, WBC the Super Middleweight World Boxing Champion, turned to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy after being written off by the media and boxing critics. Glen attributes his success in the championship to Solution Focused Hypnotherapy. Indeed, he was so impressed by the Solution Focused model of hypnotherapy that he trained as a Solution Focused Hypnotherapist himself with Clifton Practice Hypnotherapy Training (CPHT). He now helps others to achieve their goals.
If you are looking for ways to improve your performance, or give your training that extra boost, Solution Focused Hypnotherapy can put you in the zone.
