Tailoring Mental Strategies for Enhanced Sports Performance

Our multifaceted approach in sports hypnotherapy involves a blend of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Psychotherapy, Counselling, NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and Psychology, each playing a vital role in enhancing sports performance:

Clinical Hypnotherapy

We use hypnotherapy to establish a deep connection with the athlete’s subconscious, facilitating changes in mental patterns that impede sports performance. This includes overcoming anxiety, enhancing focus, and reinforcing positive self-belief.


Our psychotherapeutic techniques delve into the athlete’s past experiences and emotions, identifying and resolving deep-rooted issues that may affect their sporting performance.


Through counselling, athletes gain insights into their emotional and mental states, allowing them to articulate and understand their challenges, thereby creating strategies for overcoming them.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

NLP is utilised to modify the athlete’s thought processes and language patterns, transforming negative mental habits into positive ones that promote peak performance.


Grounded in sports psychology, our approach addresses the cognitive aspects of athletic performance. We apply evidence-based strategies to enhance mental toughness, resilience, and focus, which are crucial for athletes at all levels.

Together, these modalities form a comprehensive strategy, targeting immediate performance issues and fostering long-term mental growth and resilience in athletes.

Session Fees and Duration

Our hypnotherapy sessions for enhancing sports performance are structured with transparent and straightforward fees:

Fee Per Session: Each session, lasting one hour, is priced at £190.

The number of sessions required can vary greatly depending on the individual athlete’s needs, goals, and the complexity of the issues being addressed.
