Hypnosis for Performance Anxiety in Sports in Vancouver, BC

The majority of people experience performance anxiety (also known as “stage fright” or “choking”) at least once in their life. Athletes, whose progress depends on their performance during competition, experience this more frequently. For athletes, being the centre of attention can be so stressful that their flight-fight-freeze mechanism kicks in. These athletes can also feel confused and forgetful or just “get stuck in their heads” rather than simply do what they know and have practiced.

How Does Sports Performance Anxiety Feel for Athletes?

For any athlete, healthy stress levels can contribute to successful competitions. However, paralyzing stress or anxious feelings can direct your thoughts in a negative direction, even causing physical symptoms such as lightheadedness, racing pulse, sweaty hands, and tremors. You can end up wishing to be in any place but the one you are at.

When an athlete experiences sports performance anxiety (or stage fright), all the hard work they’ve invested in their sport can vanish. These athletes can feel helpless just at the thought of performing.

How Can Hypnosis Help You as an Athlete?

Hypnosis is a very effective way to manage anxious patterns and boost confidence. Hypnosis utilizes the power of your athletic mind to stimulate the feelings and emotions evoked during performance, and then address triggers, creating a new set of helpful feelings and emotions to associate with sports performance.

Using sports hypnosis, athletes can also establish a stronger mind-body connection and apply it to effective visualizations of successful sports performances.
This approach can help you shift your focus to the desired outcomes, redirect your thoughts, images and beliefs about performance, and consequently allow you to reach a higher state of preparation.
