What is Performance Anxiety?
There is a large body of research indicating the mental practice can enhance physical performance. This is not to suggest that mental practice can replace the physical, but the mind does not have physical limitations such as muscle fatigue. Whenever we have to perform a task demonstrating a skill (sports, exam or presentation) we strive to maximise the development of the skills and present the best version of ourself. Studies have shown that performance can be significantly improved if mental practice is conscientiously sustained then we can achieve results we physically strive towards.
Hypnotherapy is an effective method because it is goal orientated and builds confidence. Hypnotherapy accesses the part of the brain where we hold our behavioural patterns and by practicing scenarios, we can mentally prepare ourselves and equally reduce potential anxiety. Therefore, freeing the minds ability to deliver the best performance.
At mindAbility in our Hypnotherapy sessions we focus on creating the ‘prefect day’ scenario. So when the day arrives you will be familiar with it (like déjà vu) and no negative emotions are triggered. Just a sense of calm and being in complete control. Our Clinical Hypnotherapist, Asha Berzon tailors sessions towards the clients’ goals and on average, takes between 4-8 sessions but varies depending on clients’ needs.
Please Note: Solution focused hypnotherapy is very effective. However, results may vary and success is not guaranteed. Success is dependent on your willingness and commitment to make changes. The *FREE initial consultation is a 15 minute telephone consultation.
