'In the zone'
The 'zone', that all top performers and athletes enter, is a hypnotic state. Whether they are aware of it or not these successful achievers are self-hypnotising in order to block out any unnecessary thoughts and distractions, and so reach their maximum positive focus. Visualising success has now become widely used for greater achievement but has been a mainstay of hypnotherapy for a long time.
Being taught these techniques by an expert ca be a powerful aid for all who wish to perform better in any capacity, from professional golf tournaments to public speaking. It enables 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 performers, business people and sporting champions (Tiger Woods, Nick Faldo, Jack Nicklaus, Ian Woosnam, Greg Rudedski, Adrian Moorhouse, Andy Cole, Roger Black, Jimmy Connors, Mohammed Ali, Nigel Benn, Mike Tyson, Frank Bruno, Michael Jordan...) have all openly admitted their secret.. they used hypnosis to achieve more. However to maintain their advantage over contemporaries most people keep it as a secret.
How to perform well
In order to pass an interview or test, or deliver a brilliant performance of any kind requires that your mind does four things well: prepare, focus, believe and deliver.
With hypnosis coaching we develope your ability to remove
- anything that stops you preparing
(e.g., reducing procrastination)
- anything that stops you focusing
(e.g., resolving internal conflicts)
- anything that stops you believing
(e.g., ending negative self-talk)
- or anything 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)
- everything that helps you focus
(e.g., finding 'the zone' using self-hypnosis)
- everything that helps you believe
(e.g., anchoring positive experiences)
- and everything 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 greatly on the nature of the issue but might involve:
To take you somewhere tranquil, peaceful and relaxing. Nearly all clients benefit from learning how to relax. When we know we can calm down and relax however stressful the situation we build a sense of effectiveness and a confidence in our ability to manage our own thoughts and emotions. This frees us up to give our best.
Using hypnotic suggestions
for building self-esteem and motivation
Generally 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 feel, think, motivate ourselves and behave.
Whether an interview, driving test, presentation or cup final it is possible to prepare to the best of your ability every time. Clients can be coached towards reaching their own goals using advanced NLP techniques.
Negative associations that limit your ability to perform at your best 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 confidence and success to develop a winning mentality rather than focusing on negative history to drag themselves down. Using NLP anchoring 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 distractions and unnecessary thoughts, and reach their maximum positive focus. Success can be repeatedly 'tasted' and visualised in clear detail, preparing the mind to automaticall function at this level.
Improve mental function
With unnecessary thoughts and distractions blocked out, post hypnotic suggestions to improve recall and mental performance become highly effective. The mind can begin to believe in its own abilities and start to work at its free-flowing best.
Clients can learn how to combine all these techniques for themselves so as to put themselves in the zone, visualise their approaching success, summon their very 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.
