There is a long history of the use of hypnosis in all types of sports, proving how athletic performance is increased dramatically in many areas – correction, speed and strength enhancements are particularly effective with sports motivation hypnosis. Some of the best known sports stars use some form of hypnosis, whether it’s visualisation or positive affirmation, and many see the help of a professional hypnotherapist, or sports psychologist to assist in their mental training. Hypnotherapists differ from Sports Psychologists in that we work directly with the subconscious mind which controls our behaviour patterns, and resolve fears or anxieties that may hamper performance, as well as building positive picture of success at a subconscious level.
Famous Sport Stars Using Hypnosis
- In 1996, Steve Collins beat Chris Eubank for the WBO super middleweight title. Most of his sports success is attributed to the focussing of attention in hypnosis with the help of Dr. Tony Quinn, himself a former bodybuilder. Collins was programmed to deliver two punches to Eubank’s one. In the fight itself, Eubank threw 300 punches, and amazingly, Collins threw over 600.
- Nigel Benn, WBC super middleweight champion, and Frank Bruno, WBC heavyweight champion both used sports hypnosis for boxing performance enhancement.
- Golfers Ian Woosnam and Tiger Woods were both hypnotised to improve their performance
