" I rehearsed the winning shot at Wimbledon a thousand times or more in my mind before hitting it" ...Roger Federer (multi grand slam tennis winner)

"I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head. It's like a color movie. First I 'see' where I want it to finish, nice and white and sitting up high on the bright green grass. Then the scene quickly changes and I 'see' the ball going there: its path, trajectory, and shape, even its behavior on landing. Then there is this sort of fadeout, and the next scene shows me making the kind of swing that will turn the previous images to reality."  (Jack Nicklaus  18 times Major Golf Winner)

Two famous quotes from two of the greatest sportsmen of all time. They both new that the mental side of the game was as important as the hours and hours of physical practice honing their skills.  Most top professional sportspeople now realise that to get to the top and stay there, they must pay attention to their thought processes and the mental side of their game.
Mental imagery and visualization are of course not new and have been a part of the most successful sportspeople's routines. With sports hypnosis and energy psychology that can be taken to a powerful new level. Not only can the visualization sequence be enhanced, but when in trance the athlete can also pinpoint areas for improvement which are not always apparent to the conscious mind. The process of rehearsing techniques while in hypnosis can be a great advantage over conventional techniques.  Meaning that you can see improvements in your performance much more quickly.

Former World Heavyweight Boxing Champion, Wladimir Klitschko is reported to have had regular hypnosis sessions and it is now used regularly by many Olympians and other top sportspeople. It is not only in the sporting arena though where it has found favour. Dancer’s, writers, artists and many other creative people are reported to have found it beneficial and also people in business too.

Give Yourself the Edge

Often an athlete can be in perfect physical shape yet still under performs. For example the striker whose goals suddenly dry up, the Golfer who gets the 'yips', the cricketer who suddenly can't hold onto a catch, the snooker player who keeps missing easy balls, etc... The training and preparation are the same but something as affected them mentally & emotionally and that means big problems.
Every problem though has a solution and that is why various mind therapies are now being looked at much more positively, because it brings results and it may bring them fast. No use when you're out of the cup final because your star striker has hit a scoring wilderness, no use when you miss the cut because your putter feels like a ton weight in your hand and the hole looks the size of a penny. I could help you overcome these things before they become a major problem.

Relaxation & Pain

Athletes who learn to do their stretching in a light hypnotic trance find that they achieve flexibility more rapidly and thoroughly. Of course being in a relaxed and flexible state means you can perform more smoothly and are much less susceptible to injury.
Pain and tension are very much associated. When a muscle is in pain from an injury, it tends to tighten that muscle. This in turn increases pain and so a pain cycle is established. I can help you create relaxation and reduce pain and so break this pain cycle. When we ease and relax the injured muscle, the pain subsides. The relaxed muscle is able to heal more rapidly than a muscle under tension. This could quite literally knock a day or two off your recovery time and allow you to resume training much quicker and ultimately of course competition.
