Sports hypnosis

Hypnosis can be used to enhance many sports psychological interventions by rapidly instilling ideas and behaviours into the subconscious mind.

Hypnosis is a safe and respected technique that is used extensively in medical practice. It is a misconception that an individual in a hypnotic trance is unable to control their behaviour or thoughts; when in a trance you are fully aware of your surroundings and can choose to move to a ‘normal’ state of consciousness at any point, should you be unhappy with anything. More information is available from General Hypnotherapy Register.
