"Champions aren’t made in the gym. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them…a desire, dream, a vision. They have to have last-minute stamina, they have to be a little faster, they have to have skill and the will. But, the will has to be stronger than the skill." Mohammed Ali
Mental strength training in the area of sport is now widely acknowledged as being an essential component of peak performance.
Hypnosis and NLP coaching have been used in sports for many years to help athletes develop mental resilience.
Common issues which impact performance include fears (of failure and success), lack of confidence, negative past experience, performance anxiety and limiting beliefs.
You will often hear about an athlete being in “The Zone” referring to a state of mind where they are performing at an optimal level. Hypnosis, self-hypnosis, NLP, self-directed neuroplasticity and energy psychologies are all remarkable tools which I utilise to give the athlete the ability to move into “The Zone” at will.
Our thoughts affect every system in our body, for better or worse. When we consider that 90 % of these thoughts processes are happening at a sub-conscious level, it makes sense that the most effective way to address those negative thought patterns is to utilise those tools which allow us access to the subconscious mind.
