In order for athletes and sports people to be at the top of their game, they need to know what it is to be in the ‘flow state’ that optimum state of mind that we all experience wether it is accomplishing a challenge or something as simple as driving a car! The fact is the flow state is critical when it comes to performing at your peak.
Hypnosis is a great tool for anchoring flow states and peak performance mentalities giving you the maximum control and literally being able to ‘turn it on’ when you need it
Our sporting and performance ability is defined by 3 critical factors,
It is often the last of these the ‘psychological’ factor that is least developed amongst sportsmen and women, and essentially this is understood to be one of the most important aspects according to studies on the mental state and peak performance!
If you have limiting beliefs, difficulty in making sense of setbacks and mistakes, or struggle to get into your flow state, lack motivation and that positive attitude, then Hypnosis for sports performance is a great solution.
Hypnosis is not only great at removing mental blocks but it has also been shown to fire the neuro transmitters that in turn release hormones such as testosterone that can actually instruct the body to increase muscle development! By future pacing (hypnotically evoking future times when you have reached your goals) your mind will actually be able to teach your body and muscles just as if you were performing the tasks in reality. This is why naturally great athletes often take time to imagine and visualise success and new routines before even attempting them.
