Anxiety & Stress

Modern life can be extremely stressful and it is often difficult to deal with the constant demands upon us. Whether you suffer from stress or anxiety in your personal or professional life, hypnosis can help. In hypnosis you can learn coping strategies for dealing with stressful situations, which will in time, actually make stress reactions less likely to occur. You will also be treated for underlying anxiety levels, thereby giving you a more healthy and balanced outlook on life.

Phobias

Phobias are irrational fears, so quite often you know there is nothing to really be fearful of. Unfortunately, our brain often won't accept these rational explanations and the fear response continues. Phobias are learnt in an instant and therefore with the right help in a safe place, can also be unlearned in an instant.

This is achieved by gaining access to that unconscious part of your mind where the habit of being fearful has grown and reinforcing the fact that there is nothing to be scared of.

Sport

In many cases when we strive for excellence in any area we concentrate on the acquisition of technique and skill, but neglect the psychological component of performance. A typical case is where a golfer plays perfectly well in practice or with friends and then plays far below this standard when playing in a competition. In this case, it is clearly not a technical issue, but a psychological one so we would work on anchoring the feelings in practice to the competition situation while also working on relaxation techniques to get the golfer in to the right state of mind.

It’s also very well known that every leading top performing sport star works with a team of experts, one of which is always a mind and life coach that helps them visualise their success. It has certainly worked for Phil Mickelson, Roger Federer, Andre Agassi and Tiger Woods, to name just a few.

Often, when you are performing at a very high level, you need to learn to trust yourself and allow the preparation you have put in to come through when you compete. It is often limiting beliefs and negative thoughts that prevent you from performing at your best level.
