Peak Sports Performance

Using hypnotherapy – or visualisation – to improve sports performance is not a new idea. We know, for example, that the Soviet Union gymnastic team took eleven therapists with them to the Melbourne Olympic games in 1956 and it worked, as it proved to be an overwhelming success, the likes of which they had not seen before. And, allegedly, captain of the England cricket team Mike Brearley consulted a hypnotherapist for the Australian tour in 1978. But even in more recent times, there are a plethora of sports personalities that you will be familiar with who swear by it.


From Premiership footballers like Wayne Rooney and golfers like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods to athletic stars such as Jessica Ennis Hill and boxers Frank Bruno and Steve Collins, the use of hypnotherapy and visualisation for getting the best possible performance has only become a popular trend because it really can work. 

Athletes from many sporting disciplines can often find that, when in competition, they can be fit physically, but if they are not as fit mentally than their opponent, they are at an instant disadvantage. Mental attitude can literally be the difference between winning and losing. 

Using a combination of hypnosis and psychotherapeutic techniques, we can work together to visualise that moment of triumph – and get you there. We can not only improve your confidence and self-belief to achieve those goals, but we can also help you cope with the anxiety and to retrain the mind not to fear certain upcoming events or feats. We increase your resilience, your motivation and most importantly, the belief that you CAN and WILL succeed.

Below are a list of possible benefits from using hypnotherapy to improve your sporting prowess:

Increased motivation

Improved willpower

Removing self-doubt

Coping with or managing nerves

Improving a particular move or technique
