'In the zone'
The 'zone', that all top performers enter, is a hypnotic state. Whether they know it or not these successful achievers are self-hypnotising in order to block out unnecessary thoughts and distractions, and reach their maximum positive focus. Visualising success is now also widely used for greater achievement but has been a mainstay of hypnotherapy for a long time.
Being taught these techniques by an expert can be a very powerful aid for all who wish to perform better in any capacity, from public speaking to professional golf tournaments. It allows us to be able to reliably call on the very best of our abilities without negativity or blocks.
Hypnotherapy is the secret weapon of many of the worlds top achievers including business people, performers and sporting champions (Nick Faldo, Tiger Woods, Ian Woosnam, Jack Nicklaus, Adrian Moorhouse, Andy Cole, Roger Black, Greg Rudedski, Jimmy Connors, Mohammed Ali, Mike Tyson, Nigel Benn, Frank Bruno, Michael Jordan... have all used hypnosis)
How to perform well
In order to pass a test or interview, or deliver a brilliant performance of any kind requires that your mind does 4 things well: prepare, focus, believe and deliver.
With hypnosis coaching we work on removing anything
- that stops you preparing
(e.g., reducing procrastination)
- that stops you focusing
(e.g., resolving internal conflicts)
- that stops you believing
(e.g., ending negative self-talk)
- or that stops you delivering
(e.g., improving poor recall).
We then work on improving everything
- that helps you prepare
(e.g., increasing motivation and effective goal setting)
- that helps you focus
(e.g., finding 'the zone' using self-hypnosis)
- that helps you believe
(e.g., anchoring positive experiences)
- and that helps you deliver
(e.g., improving confidence)
With these four elements improved your best performances are likely to follow.

Treating performance issues with hypnotherapy, depends on the nature of the issue but might involve:
To take you somewhere peaceful, tranquil and relaxing. Nearly all clients benefit from learning how to relax. When we know we can relax and calm down however stressful the situation we build a sense of effectiveness and a confidence in our ability to manage our own emotions and thoughts. This frees us up to give our best.
Using hypnotic suggestions
for building self-esteem and motivation
Usually this is the first treatment most clients receive. Nearly everyone benefits from initial work on building self-esteem; since the sense of belief in our abilities influences how we think, feel, motivate ourselves and behave.
Whether a driving test, interview, presentation or cup final it is possible to prepare to the best of your ability every time. Clients can be coached towards reaching their goals using advanced NLP techniques.
Negative associations that limit your ability to perform can be explored and released using hypnotherapy and hypnoanalysis or may be completely wiped away using NLP.
Drawing on our best
Clients can learn how to draw on previous experiences of success and confidence to develop a winning mentality rather than focusing on negative history to drag themselves down. Using NLP these positive feelings can be reproduced at any time, giving you a boost when it really matters.
Mentally rehearsing success in 'the zone'
In a state of deep hypnotic relaxation clients can learn to block out unnecessary thoughts and distractions, and reach their maximum positive focus. Success can be repeatedly 'tasted' and visualised in vivid detail.
Improve mental function
With unnecessary thoughts and distractions blocked out, hypnotic suggestions to improve recall and mental performance become highly effective. The mind can start to believe in its own abilities and begin to work at its free-flowing best.
Clients can learn how to combine all these techniques for themselves in order to put themselves in the zone, visualise their imminent success, summon their best frame of mind and perform at their utmost whenever needed.
This varies from person to person depending on the targets and performance levels required.
