Sports Hypnosis at Kuiper Hypnosis

I’m Gregory Kuiper, an NGH certified hypnotherapist, at Kuiper Hypnosis we understand the significance of mental strength in sports performance. I believe hypnosis is not about improving the mechanics of the performances but, rather to help the sportsperson relax, focus and concentrate so that they can achieve their extreme potential.

First of all, I talk to my sports client about their fears, pressures and other aspects that are affecting their mind prior to their performances. After a detailed analysis of every aspect I design specific hypnosis sessions for them.

During a session for sports hypnosis I try to make the client aware of the influences of their unconscious mind over their behavior, beliefs and performances. Then I try to relax their conscious mind completely so as to activate the most powerful part of the brain i.e. the unconscious mind which has the capability of accepting suggestions readily.

Sports Hypnosis in Practice also helps in recovering from the injuries that include pain management. I try to help my clients by making them learn to dissociate from pain which further helps them in coping with it effectively and perform in spite of it.
