Hypnosis is a technique that allows me to help you access your unconscious mind. Hypnosis is a technique in which I will make suggestions to you while you are hypnotized into a trance state where the unconscious mind becomes available. Here, during your hypnotization, relaxation and focus of your mind is elicited . In our Sport Hypnosis session, suggestions for changes in desirable sport behavior and attitudes such as confidence will be brought forth and then realized. During our Sport Hypnosis sessions we will often target the development of Mental Skills (e.g. confidence, arousal regulation, self-talk, imagery, motivation, etc...).
Although the media has portrayed Hypnosis in inaccurate ways, there is an abundant amount of psychological scientific literature along with sport science studies which confirm the efficacy of Sport Hypnosis. To illustrate, the Journal for Applied Sport Psychology and the Journal of Human Kinetics have both published numerous studies on the efficacy of Sport Hypnosis.
I am proud to have studied Hypnosis at the Milton Erickson Foundation. Please see the blog page for more reflections on Sport Hypnosis. Contact me for a free Sport Hypnosis Consultation. Thank you.
