Hypnosis and Sports Performance- How to Improve Your Game

Reach your peak performance with hypnosis

Competing at a high level in sports requires hard work but can also be a drain on the mind. Sports performance hypnosis can help you achieve your goals.

In fact hypnosis can reveal your greatest potential and bring it to life for you.

Hypnosis can also help you overcome fears of performance developed due to past injuries, accidents, crashes or defeats and can enable you to do your absolute best.

Fear in the subconscious mind can develop due to any number of factors and this can lead to a lack of concentration for the athlete and a decline in performance. Hypnosis sessions can address these fears by getting into the subconscious mind and helping you overcome them.

Hypnosis helps to crash through barriers stopping progression or optimum performance so they no longer have any power over you.

There could be a combination of mental/emotional issues that could be holding you back from your highest level of performance. The key mental factors that are important when it comes to improving your performance include emotional control, self-confidence, concentration, commitment and motivation, courage, composure, perfectionism and self-consciousness.


Hypnosis can be a guide to understanding the subconscious. The brain can be trained to work in your favor and do what you want it to do for the betterment of your game. The hypnotherapist can work with you to change the programming the subconscious mind has been listening to for years from the negative to the positive.

It’s a treatment method that alters negative programming and tosses out the bad and replaces it with positive images, thoughts and attitudes that can make a player who is fearful feel as though anything is possible!

    Hi Becca,
    I was hoping I could hook up with a hypnotist that might be able to help me. I am a long time runner and historically, I always have a problem at the start of a race. I will be doing the Mt. Washington Road Race on the 18th., my 11th. attempt. I have a real hang up with this race especially primarily because it is 7.6 miles and all uphill. I’m already in a very negative, defaetist mode when the race starts. My legs feel weak and I never feel I’m going to finish (but I always do). I’m not looking to break a course record only to do what I know I’m capable of doing. I’d love to see what I can do without that monkey on my back. Thanks for any help you can provide. I live in Marlboro.
