There are times in all of our lives when peak performance is required. The term “performance” is often associated with sports and athletes because it is now used so widely in these fields with positive results.
The techniques I give my clients can help with much more than this though. Performance can be anything from success at work, overcoming issues such as confidence or social anxiety, overcoming a challenge such as addiction, or performing well in exams, public speaking or any other task where you feel a little extra motivation, composure and positivity would help you.
Hypnotherapy unlocks your own natural resources, allowing you to use your mind in a different way, think and work more productively, control your fears and release your brakes to thrive. We all perform better when we are relaxed, confident and in control.
Many elite athletes, public speakers and business people use hypnotherapy as a regular part of their coaching and preparation strategy.
Visualisation exercises help you practise your skills over and over again, visualising positive results and setting yourself up for success. Research backs up the theory that mental rehearsal increases self-efficacy in many areas of sport and performance.
Much of performance comes down to control over your own thoughts, emotions and imagination. Hypnotherapy can teach you to become more in control of your own mental state, release nerves and fears holding you back, and propel that energy into your performance.
Performance anxiety can have a crippling effect on your behaviour. How many times have you “choked” or worked yourself up before a big event so much that things don’t go smoothly?
It’s a natural human behaviour, but the more we worry about and anticipate these possible negative events, the more likely we are to fail. Hypnotherapy can reduce your fear and replace anxiety with excitement and confidence.
You’ll possibly have heard of people referring to being in “the zone” when they perform well. This is a state of almost effortless success and relaxed enjoyment. I can work with you to find your own personal peak performance zone and help you reach this state before challenging events.
When you’re striving for your best possible performance, it doesn’t make sense not to unlock every single resource you have at your disposal. Your mind is a powerful tool when used properly, but it can be your worst enemy when it fights against you.
Hypnotherapy will make sure you’re using this tool to your best advantage. Together we can improve your confidence, reduce performance anxiety, increase motivation and dedication, increase relaxation and concentration and maintain your composure. We can get you the results you’ve always wanted.
