HYPNOTHERAPY AND MINDFULNESS FOR SPORTING SUCCESS

The mind and the body are linked in the same way different parts of a computer are linked. Your mind tells your body what movements to make and your body tells your mind what it is seeing, feeling etc.

The mind is the most powerful computer in the world and it can help your body to achieve amazing things. Using hypnotherapy and methods associated with mindfulness and NLP we can tap into the the areas of your mind that allow you to maximise your potential, both in the sporting arena and in your life as a whole.

The three main areas to consider:

1. Goal Setting

2. Mental imagery

3. Mental Flow

1. Goal Setting does not just involve setting goals or outcomes within the sporting arena. It also involves setting goals in life. It may be that solving relationship or personal difficulties is a priority.

What’s the point of asking an athlete to focus on winning a gold medal if their marriage is having difficulties or they are about to be declared bankrupt? You cannot take sport or any other area of life in isolation. Football coaches have learned that and many other sports coaches are learning it too.

It is important to have short term achievable goals in sport so that you can work towards them as a ‘reality’. Some people say long term ‘outcomes’ are not favourable as they can lead to disappointment.

Well, we can assure you that the vast majority of highly successful people who win gold medals, championship trophies etc have all done it a thousand times in their minds and in their dreams before they ever do it in reality.

The truth in sport psychology is that we don’t develop strategies from scratch and then teach them to athletes. The truth is that we look at what the truly successful sports stars are doing anyway. It is possible to look at any sporting great from the past and write an entire book on applied mental sporting techniques based on what they did naturally. Mental edge is often the difference between great and truly great.

This is not a new invention.

2. Mental Imagery involves seeing and experiencing success in your mind. You don’t just have to see it – some people are much better at feeling things. Imagine how it feels to run your fastest ever time! Imagine how it feels to have that gold medal placed around your neck!

Affirmations are useful at times, for instance you could repeat ‘everyday I am getting stronger and faster. I am the greatest’ This will improve your ‘self-talk’, but to truly change your internal belief system it is necessary to make use of mental imagery and rehearsal.
