Hypnosis for Sports

Achieving the Sports Mindset

Are you a keen sports person? Perhaps a cyclist, runner, gymnast, athlete, footballer, golf or tennis player? Whether you’re a social player or working towards an Olympic dream the right mindset can make all the difference. Letting go of unhelpful thoughts and habits can help you perform at your best as well as making sports more enjoyable again.


When a shot, jump or catch goes badly does it play on your mind for the rest of the game or even days later? Do you find yourself predicting how everything will go down hill from here? Perhaps you become angry or frustrated with yourself, particularly if it’s an important game or competition. You may even find yourself distracted by how well other participants are doing or irritated by noise and what’s going on around you. If any of these are the case for you hypnosis can help you to tune into the zone and dial down any distractions so you can perform at your best.


What my clients say –

“I would highly recommend Rachel as a practitioner for improving sports performance. I was always berating myself for poor play, ‘’ I should of done this or that’’ or distracted by ‘’peripheral noise.’’ The breakthrough for me was using the relaxation techniques and the positive thinking approach she taught me. This has helped me accept a bad shot, hole or outcome and focus on the next task at hand. Since our sessions together my golf mental state has improved immeasurably. I’m now enjoying playing golf and saving strokes as well. I look forward to learning more from Rachel in the future.” R. Graham


Do you believe you can do it? Perhaps you’re eating all the right things, spending hours at the gym, reading up on techniques and practicing everyday but you feel you’re just going through the motions. Maybe you just can’t picture yourself succeeding. Lack of self belief can make it so much harder to train and come back from set backs. Why get up early on rainy dark days if you don’t actually think you can do it? Hypnosis can help you to get a clear picture of your success so that you are more motivated and every throw or catch becomes a new opportunity to perform even better.


In a relatively short amount of time (3 to 4 sessions for many people) you can see a real improvement in your motivation, performance and how you deal with pressure. Many people find the benefits also spills over into other parts of their lives such as work and social life.
