The root of a sport’s problem is likely to be discovered within a limiting core belief that was shaped in your childhood. In such situations, hypnosis might help because it has the capacity to reach subconscious problems.
Imagine a footballer, wondering why he couldn’t cope with a seemingly easy (but important) challenge. After the match in the changing room, he thinks: ”What came over me? I know I can do it. I’ve already done it many times.”
In these situations the issue isn’t usually one of ability, but is connected to negative beliefs; fear of letting spectators down, or maybe fear of failure. Such beliefs don’t necessarily work at a conscious (or rational) level, so the hypnotherapist has to take the footballer’s thoughts back to that specific belief’s creation, and reframe the thought process from there (while he’s in a naturally-occurring trance state).
