Sports Hypnosis & Hypnotherapy & NLP
Bonita in London is a registered 'Mind Factor' Sports Coach, using both Sports Hypnosis and Sports NLP, she is qualified to work with Sports Professionals and anybody looking to improve their ‘mental game’.
Have you ever thought about the difference between the sports people who reach the ‘top of their game’ and those who don’t? The Sports people who reach the top of their game have the majority of times, received ‘mind coaching’ and not just the technical coaching required in their field. It sets apart the sports people who rise to the top and those that don’t!
Sports Hypnosis has been used in sport for at least 50 years, with numerous well-known sports people using hypnosis as part of their training. There has also been a vast amount of research produced, giving vital evidence of the effectiveness of sports hypnosis in increasing endurance, speed, accuracy and style correction.
You may recognise some of the well-known sportspeople who use Sports Hypnosis which include ASP Tour surfer Russell Winter, the Bejing Olympic champions Vince Hancock and Steve Hooker, the boxers Frank Bruno, Steve Collins and Nigel Benn, the golfer Ian Woosnam and the ex England cricket captain Mike Brearley to name a few.
Sports Hypnosis combines hypnosis with traditional sports psychology and sports NLP to overcome many sporting psychological problems. Sports Hypnosis and Sports NLP both help to replace mental doubts, fears, insecurities and uncertainties with confidence and focus. Most Champions use some form of sports hypnosis whether it's visualisations and/or affirmations as well as seeking the help of a professional Sports Hypnotist and Sports NLP Practitioner or Sports Psychologist, to assist in their mental training.
Sports Hypnosis is so effective because it works directly with the ‘unconscious’ part of the mind, the part that controls our behaviours and automatic responses in situations. The ‘unconscious’ part of our mind also stores our beliefs about ourselves, so when we work with this part of the mind, we are able to make changes on a deep, permanent level. Sports Hypnosis helps to replace negative beliefs such as "I'm just not good enough' to a more empowering belief of 'I can do it, if someone else can so can I' etc. Change is then often rapid with visible results, moving you into the 'Winning' position.
Now imagine how that would feel? Let us help you become that 'winner' through our Sports Hypnosis and Sports NLP.......

Many people know that Tiger Woods uses psychological and hypnotic techniques throughout his game, and the Indian golfer, Gaganjeet Bhullar, qualified for the 2009 British Open by using Golf Hypnosis. Gaganjeet's golf hypnosis was administered by a Sports Hypnotherapist to program a 'winning mind set'.
There are many other examples of hypnosis used in sports, for example, in boxing in 1996, Steve Collins beat Chris Eubank for the World Boxing Organisations Super-middleweight title. Much of his sports success was attributed to the focusing of attention created by sports hypnosis, Collins was programmed to deliver two punches to Eubank’s one. In the fight Eubank threw 300 punches, Collins threw over 600. Nigel Benn, WBC Super Middleweight Champion and Frank Bruno, WBC Heavyweight Champion both used Sports hypnosis for Boxing performance enhancement.
The list of examples is endless as to how Sports Hypnosis has helped many Champions over the years.

Letter from ‘Riding confidence’ client where fear was holding her back: My horse riding is going well. My confidence seems to be continuing to grow. I have ridden a range of horses over the last few months and even entered a competition. I came 7th out of 10.
Diving client previously held back by fear: All went well, completed the PADI Diving without any problems and floated on my back for the first time ever. Again thanks for the help, we have already booked to return abroad for more diving next year'.
Golfing Client frustrated with underperforming: Thanks for all your help Bonita, I've managed to actually properly enjoy a few games of golf instead of getting totally 'wound up' with myself! I have got into the 'zone' we worked on, while taking a shot which helped tremendously, a much smoother, relaxed swing. My scores are gradually getting lower, which is fuelling my confidence too, great stuff this hypnosis!
Text from Scuba Diving Test client, treated day before test and prior to
going to Egypt, to be fully qualified in Scuba Diving.
Celia, just to say many thanks for helping me to overcome my fear of taking off my mask underwater, putting it back on and clearing whilst taking my Padi Open Water Diving Course for my test. After seeing you I did it in a calm, relaxed way and am very happy. Thanks again.
