Hypnosis for Peak Performance on the Golf Course


Get Your Head in the Game and Achieve Your True Potential

Golf is a sport in which the use of mental performance techniques, imagery and self-hypnosis can raise your level of play quickly and easily. Since so much of your play on the golf course depends on your mental attitude and focus, this should not be a surprise.

Controlling your mind is the key to great golf and hypnosis is the easiest way to gain control over your mind and thoughts.

“I never hit a shot, not even in practice, without having a very sharp, in-focus picture of it in my head” ~ Jack Nicklaus

Hypnosis and sports are a very effective combination. You are probably aware that many famous athletes and sports teams incorporate the use of mental performance techniques in their practice routines. What you may not have known, however, is how effective hypnosis can be in this process.

Beyond imagery and visualizing success, hypnosis helps a golfer to eliminate negative thoughts and distractions by relaxing and focusing inwardly. Hypnosis works because it serves as mental training that teaches your mind to react automatically, just as physical training allows your muscles to respond easily without thought. This training kicks in when the athlete is under pressure and prompts the brain and nervous system to relax and respond positively to difficult situations. This gives you the remarkable ability to "keep your head in the game" every moment; focusing your attention on just one shot at a time.

There are plenty of terrific books available describing the importance of improving your mental game. Many people find that, while the ideas in these books are inspirational, they tell the golfer what to do rather than how to do it.

My golf hypnosis program is designed to help you put into action now the teachings of Bob Rotella and others by:

  • Anchoring and imprinting the physical, mental and emotional characteristics of your “zone” state.
  • Creating triggers that you can fire-off to immediately bring on a sense of focus and relaxation during the most opportune times in your pre-shot routine, clearing your mind and allowing your body to perform at its best.
  • Removing fears and doubts that have been holding you back, freeing your self to play well consistently.
  • Changing your inner language to positively support your success.
    Making the game fun again!

What to expect from your hypnosis sessions

No swinging pocket watches…that is just Hollywood hype.

You can expect good conversation about your game and how to improve it, followed by hypnosis and self-hypnosis training to help you achieve your highest potential.

  • Discussions and demonstrations revealing how hypnosis works to free your mind and body to achieve your full potential.
  • Creation of a personalized plan for improving your mental performance.
  • Hypnosis sessions and self-hypnosis training to allow you to eliminate distractions, replace negative thoughts with positive images and focus completely, both on and off the course.

*Diagnosed medical and psychological conditions require coordination with your medical provider. Such coordination is easy to initiate and is usually welcomed by treating physicians and counselors.
