Everyone knows that being a successful athlete involves maintaining high levels of physical fitness.
However, this is only part of the required strategy for success. According to research, sports performance has more to do with mental abilities than physical abilities.
To many people this may sound like a strange concept. But thousands of sports people have recognised the power of their mental state having a positive effect on their sports performance.
Therefore Hypnotherapy, Hypnosis and Mind Sciences have been used for many years to help professional athletes enhance their natural ability. It has been widely reported that golfer Tiger Woods and many others regularly use hypnosis.

In May 1954 Roger Bannister broke the 4 minute mile, just 2 months later at the Commonwealth games both Bannister and Australia’s John Landy ran less than 4 minutes, the mindset change opened the way, almost allowing others to believe it possible. Many athletes since have run under the 4 minutes.
Many of my sports clients from Elite professionals to weekend hackers have turned their game around by changing their mindsets.
