Stage Fright and Performance Anxiety

A few years ago I was visited by a musician who had made a mistake in a piece of music and however much he tried, however much he practised, couldn’t stop making the same mistake in the same place again and again. This had gone on to affect his general performance because all he could think about was the place where he made the mistake and whether he’d get through it safely. It even made him worry about making more mistakes in other places.

In just a few sessions of hypnotherapy we had eliminated the problem and used mental rehearsal to enable him to return to the confident and competent player that he really was.

Whether you are a musician, an actor, a dancer, a golfer, a tennis player or you partake in any other activity that involves you demonstrating your skills in front of others, you are vulnerable to developing performance anxiety together with the stress and damage to confidence that it brings.

Improve your Performance

hypnotherapy for sport performance anxietyOnce you have dealt with your fears and anxieties you can also use hypnosis and hypnotherapy to help you upgrade your skills and work on improving your performance. Often we are prone, without realising, to putting a ceiling on our expectations. Clearly this is very limiting behaviour, but if we don’t think we can do it, then that is the result we will get. Sometimes there is a fear of failure, at others, strangely enough, a fear of success and the demands that may follow. For others still it is simply a lack of self-belief.

Whilst I can’t change your physique and whilst it is up to you to gain any technical know-how, my aim and expertise is in helping you release any thought patterns that hold you back and instil a positive and confident can-do attitude. Then watch out for the results!

I have helped tennis players, golf players, swimmers, horse riders, musicians and many others to upgrade the way they think about themselves and to surpass their old expectations. If they can do it then so can you!
