Performance

Hypnotherapy has been proven to help with all types of performance and can help you develop a state of flow more efficiently.  Flow is a special state which we have all experienced at some point in our lives, where everything just seems to be going perfectly well.  Whatever task you focused on at the time, you just seemed to get things done without contemplating anything could go wrong, you just happened to deal with whatever life threw at you in that moment.

It’s important to note that if you require assistance with a specific performance issue which relates to a sport, it has been shown that using visualisation techniques can improve your confidence in your own abilities, which reduces performance anxiety.

We can help identify any limiting beliefs that are holding you back.  It’s a common thought for athletes to relate the loss of a game towards their own self worth, which inhibits future games because of the expectation that they must always perform to a set standard.  Although it can be beneficial to have the expectation you are always going to perform perfectly well, it doesn’t prepare you for any upsets that may occur along the way.

You cannot always be in control of external events, but you can always control your response.  We can help you to accept when it’s not in your control so you have a healthier attitude towards yourself, which paradoxically helps you achieve a better performance .

 

 

 

 

How our programmes are delivered

A specific plan is tailored to each person by one of our therapists to help them achieve their goals and to prepare for any issues along the way.

We easily identify any issues by using evidence based procedures to help assess and build a strategic plan for success.  Case formulation (understanding of issues) is a very important part of any successful therapy.  “A problem well defined is a problem halved”.

We focus on three main aspects that are required by any therapist,

  • Bond of trust between therapist and client;
  • Agreement on therapy goals;
  • Agreement on therapy tasks (Bordin, 1979).

The initial session will start with an introduction to dispel any concerns/misconceptions that you have about hypnotherapy.

Relevant questions will be asked so that we can get a better understanding of what your main issue is, and if there are any other contributing stresses.

If there any obstacles that come in the way of you achieving your goals, we will work together to design a flexible plan to prepare for any setbacks so you can stay on track.
