HOW DOES SPORTS HYPNOTHERAPY HELP IMPROVE ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE OR REDUCE SPORTS ANXIETY?
There are so many ways sports hypnosis and the tools we use in hypnotherapy can help all levels of athletes achieve more.
Certainly, athletes spend an amazing amount of time physically training and in competition. Therefore, it’s essential we also spend time training our minds.
There are 2 overarching ways hypnotherapy and hypnosis can help athletes perform better in their sport. These are Preventative and Reactive.
Preventative sports hypnosis includes “Weak-link identification” and General support to enhance performance.
Preventative Sports Hypnosis and Mental Training
All athletes experience an entirely new range of emotional & mental responses as their level of competition increases.
Although we consider physical training and exercise as a means of injury prevention for the body, we often neglect the mind.
However, with tools like sports hypnosis, we can address those mental challenges early on. This creates a foundation to prevent future issues in an athletes mind.
A reactive approach uses hypnotherapy tools like sports hypnosis to address observed issues or challenges. These are elements that may be keeping an athlete from performing their best or achieving their goals.
