Hypnosis for Sports Performance
Do you find yourself feeling anxious before a game? Hypnosis for sports performance can help athletes alleviate performance anxiety, reach new goals, and overcome debilitating psychological obstacles. Modern Day Hypnosis specializes in hypnosis for athletes by addressing negative patterns that get in the way of a successful outcome.
You may have heard about some celebrity athletes using hypnosis to improve their sports performance. Athletes such as Mike Tyson and Michael Jordan have incorporated hypnosis into their training and pre-game routines to enhance their focus and mental stamina. It is also becoming more and more common among Olympic athletes to help with visualization because visualizing the win in their mind before their event increases their chances of success because they don't have to think about it in the moment allowing them to focus on what they need to in order to bring home the medal.

Sports Hypnosis Theory
Modern Day Hypnosis has learned through years of experience and education in hypnotherapy that in order to achieve peak performance, athletes need to reach a certain state of mind. Every sport requires its own unique state of mind and emotional balance, as do individual athletes.
For example, some competitions require more aggression than others (like football or rugby). Sports like golf require deep concentration. Some athletes perform best when their minds are completely clear, others require an intense focus. This is why Modern Day Hypnosis starts your treatment by evaluating your specific needs and goals to identify how to tailor your hypnosis session so it will work best for you. Hypnotism and guided meditation for sports is designed to tap into how your unique mindset works and address mental patterns to:
- Alleviate performance anxiety
- Reduce stress during game time
- Improve concentration
- Enhanced focus
- Evaluate pain control
- Build and reinforce confidence
- And more
Modern Day Hypnosis gives athletes the tools to induce self-hypnosis when appropriate during games or matches. Learn how to breathe and let go of any anxiety that holds you back. Through sport performance hypnosis sessions you will discover how to seek out memories of past peak performance to reinforce your mind’s power and change your thoughts. We empower individuals to perform their best with custom approaches, one-on-one engagement with an experienced hypnotist, and empowered mental states. We specialize in hypnotizing athletes and helping them improve their mind-body connection. See for yourself by reading what others have to say about their experience.
Hypnosis for Sports Performance Anxiety
Many athletes experience performance anxiety before or during an important match or event. Most performance anxiety issues occur when an athlete’s mind and body are disconnected and not in the present moment. Instead of using muscle memory or other instinctive actions to perform, athletes may be focused on thinking about what they should be doing instead. Hypnosis training for sports performance anxiety helps quiet and calm the mind, bringing you, the athlete, into the present moment, totally focused and aware of your current circumstances.
When athletes perform in the present moment (which they can reach through self-hypnosis) they’re less prone to distraction. Modern Day Hypnosis leads athletes through hypnosis sessions to reach this state of mind, and teach them how to use these resources beyond the competitive field by utilizing these techniques in their everyday life. Learn how to believe in your abilities and reduce sports performance anxiety with customized hypnosis from an expert certified hypnotherapist.

Sports Hypnosis - How Does It Work?
Your subconscious mind is beneath the surface. This is the part of consciousness that Modern Day Hypnosis taps into most effectively. The subconscious mind is the most receptive to hypnotic suggestions. We use hypnotic suggestion and other techniques like creative visualization to lead athletes towards success. Additionally, we aim to help cultivate mindfulness, which is the awareness that arises from paying attention to the present moment.
Modern Day Hypnosis leads you through affirmations (that can be used in your conscious mind too) to help you create positive changes that occur through hypnosis. Learn visualization and hypnosis techniques to help you find inner peace and relaxation when it matters most as an athlete. Discover how you can address behavioral triggers to help with the creation of new mental patterns and more controlled performance. When you’re hypnotized, your subconscious mind will be more receptive to the hypnotic suggestions that help you achieve your goals and conquer all challenges.
In order to get to the subconscious mind, we must induce hypnosis. Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness characterized by deep relaxation and heightened focus. To become hypnotized, we first start with some introductory exercises that include breathing techniques that allow you to relax and enter a suggestible hypnotic state of mind. Once your mind is quieted through hypnotic trance, we’re able to rewire negative thought patterns and overcome obstacles that impact your athletic performance. Modern Day Hypnosis incorporates guided imagery through conversational hypnosis to help you realize that the irrational fears and phobias you face can be successfully managed. Overcome them with the power of suggestion during a hypnotic trance.
Overcoming Fears, Obstacles, and Negativity
Some of the obstacles that sports hypnotists help athletes overcome include fears and phobias. First, your hypnotist helps you understand that fears and phobias are fundamentally different. This difference is important when understanding and processing pre-performance anxiety. Fears are based in reality and tied to real, actual events and memories. A phobia on the other hand is a typical manifestation of the mind that is not based upon past memory or experience. Once we understand what is causing your anxieties, we can begin overcoming them while under hypnosis. Some common fears and phobias for athletes include:
- Enochlophobia (Fear of crowds)
- Not being able to remember a play, sign or signal
- Making a mistake
- Disappointing teammates, coaches, or fans
Modern Day Hypnosis helps you reprogram your unconscious mind to build new, healthier patterns that you can take with you everywhere you go. Learn ways to hypnotize yourself on the field when you need it most with the help of an experienced hypnotist. Induce the deep state of calm relaxation necessary for heightened performance.
