How Hypnotherapy can aid your Peak Performance in Sports

As a sports competitor, do you feel that you are truly delivering your peak performance? The answer to achieving peak performance in sports could lie with Hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is a supplementary therapy that utilises the power of positive suggestion to create a change in behaviour and improve performance. Its long been used in the area of Sports Psychology to great success with Team GB, Formula 1, and the Arsenal Football team. Annette Sloly has worked with competing Cyclists and Equestrians, as well as the UK’s next generation of Hockey players to perform to the best of their ability. Below we explore just some of the benefits Hypnotherapy can have in order for you to reach ‘peak performance’.


1. Help you get into the zone

If you are struggling to focus on your goals, Hypnotherapy can help you to get ‘into the zone’ mentally, so you can focus more accurately and effectively at your chosen sport.


2. Visualisation

Many athletes struggle to visualise themselves succeeding, such as winning an upcoming race, which can mentally hold them back from success, and enjoyment. Learning how to visualise effectively may make your goals seem more achievable. Helping you to accomplish them, and improve focus over time.


3. Negative emotions and thoughts

As an athlete, you will no doubt be your own worst critic. Without realising it these negative thoughts and emotions could be holding you back from delivering your peak performance. Hypnotherapy can help to alter the thought processes of your conscious mind and silence your inner saboteur. Leaving you confident and able to reach your peak performance. Allowing you to really focus on the task at hand and go into ‘performance flow.’


Why Hypnotherapy?

Hypnotherapy combines clinically proven therapeutic techniques (talking therapy) with Hypnosis (trance) to help people make positive changes and improve their quality of life. Neuroplasticity or brain plasticity refers to the brain’s ability to change throughout life. We can strengthen and grow new pathways through the repetition of thought and behaviour, and that can happen throughout our lives. Whilst we are in trance, our brains are optimally primed for plasticity, enabling positive new connections to form and create change in our thoughts and behaviours.
