Sports Hypnosis

The connection between mind and body has been extensively studied and explored in every facet of life. In sport, this is no different. The link between mental confidence and someone’s sporting performance is discussed on a regular basis by many different academics in the health and fitness sector.

The difference between the first and third-round pick for a future NFL Quarterback is not a physical skill but mental confidence. Athletes have to be just as tough mentally as they are physical.

Overcoming a bad performance, coming back from a bad injury, improving sports performance, and even just overcoming competition nerves are mental blocks that no amount of training can overcome.

Sports hypnosis works to fill in the gaps that physical training cant. If you need help to improve your sports performance contact Quays Clinic.

Hypnosis For Sport

Much like hypnotherapy is used to help people to stop smoking, lose weight, or to help with an emotional issue, sports hypnosis is used to assist athletes in overcoming a mental block or to help them “visualize” their success prior to the event. This gives the sports athlete greater confidence in their own abilities and allows the sportsman or sportswomen to concentrate on their sport and not whether or not they will succeed.

In sessions designed to overcome injury, the athlete uses sports hypnosis and hypnotherapy to mentally prepare themselves to return to the sport that nearly crippled them (much like the victim of an accident could use the same therapy to assist them in driving a car).

An athlete can also use hypnosis and hypnotherapy to overcome performance issues such as a basketball player who has poor free-throw shooting yet exercises good mechanics.


Many of the most famous athletes admit to practicing self-hypnosis and the process of self-visualization. Phil Jackson, the coach of nine NBA championships and the coach behind the success of two of the best basketball players in history Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant. His practice of self-hypnosis and teaching his players “self visualization” was the ultimate key to all of his championship seasons.

Many professional baseball players included sports hypnosis in their training including Hall-of-Famers George Brett and Rod Carew. Famous heavyweight boxer Ken Norton used hypnotherapy sessions before is victory against Muhammad Ali for the championship. After his defeat, Muhammad Ali began to use the same therapy himself.

Hypnotherapy For Sports Performance

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy can be used in all sports and for any competitor regardless of age. Whether self-hypnosis is used simply for competition nerves, performance blocks, or even overcoming personal injury, you can use hypnotherapy to improve your sports performance. Anyone can benefit from a better mental edge in competition.
