    Chris from love Island Hypnosis sessions for anxiety

     

    Love Island has been a Television phenomenon this summer. The ITV2 show has been watched by millions, perhaps trying to escape from all the politics and bad news that most TV has been serving up.

     

    Returning home with Olivia his new girlfriend he has been bravely talking about his battles in the past, because despite his six pack stomach Chris isn’t afraid to speak about his feelings...  

     Hypnotherapist for Anxiety Feelings

    ‘I had a hypnotherapist and I had a loads of sessions with him which sorted it out,’ he told press after arriving back in the UK following the Love Island final on Monday night with his partner Olivia.

    ‘But it was at a time when I had anxiety over feeling anxious; I had a 9 to 5 job and when it got to half four, five o’ clock, I would start feeling anxious and I wouldn’t want to go home ... then I spoke to my mum and we got help and the hypnotherapist sorted me out.’

    Like many people he ended up suffering from panic attacks even having one in the middle of a cricket match.

    Chris said: ‘I had it when I was playing cricket, I just broke down in the middle of the playing field and that was sh#t – it was last season, last year.’

     

    Sharing his story has helped many

    Chris hasn’t been afraid to share how he felt and show that getting help has been so beneficial to him. Taking to Instagram he wrote: ‘Hopefully this may help certain people who’ll relate: It was about May 2013 when I finally overcame anxiety and panic attacks, most sickening months of my life where you never know what your you’re guna do. And it wasn’t until my mum knew and I spoke out about it I could sort things out. It hit me again summer just gone but I knew from the breathing techniques, imagery and everything else I was taught, getting over it wasn’t an issue. Took time and money but it was the best I ever spent.’

  2. How do I use Hypnotherapy to improve my sports performance?

    Hypnosis for sports performance RF

    When you watch top sports people and athletes it is easy to see that they need coaching to help them with the physical side of their performance. What you may not realise is how important their mental attitude is towards how well they compete.

    Hypnosis can really help with sports success..it doesn't take very long to learn how to help yourself.

     

    Did you ever wonder about how hypnosis could improve your success with your own sports performance?

     

    There is more research than you may realise into how looking ahead and visualising how you want to perform makes it so much more likely to happy.

    Regularly giving yourself a chance to imagine a detailed visualisation of the exact moves you want to make will increase the likelihood of this happening in reality. We always get more of what we think about.

    Rather than thinking.. “I can’t score that goal”, or “I will never putt that golf ball” you can learn to visualise yourself doing exactly what you really want. The more you imagine it the more it is likely to happen for you.

    All the psychological coaching that top sports players have can mean the difference between winning and losing. It's not just football and golf either. Even darts players have seen me for help with their arrows!

     

    It’s not just the things you think about.

     

    Another aspect that you may not think about at first, is that you can also learn to keep your emotions in check when you are taking part in sport.

     This includes finding a way to manage nerves and performance anxiety but can also be about learning how to manage temper or frustration when things don’t go your way.

    "The ball was in!"

    There’s much less shouting in tennis nowadays that in the old days of John McEnroe. He may have been unable to control his temper but you can learn to control yours.

    If things go wrong for you then you can learn to use this to help you focus and see how you can get the game back on track. Instead of falling apart you can regain your focus and start to see what you can do to help you get where you want to be. It is all about letting go of the negative an looking for the positive.

     

    Hypnotherapy for sports performance can make a real difference. From helping with a golf swing that feels like it is going wrong, to aiming for the back of the football net with more accuracy, to snooker balls that you can see being potted rather than missing, hypnosis can really help you.

     

    Sporting people can find that learning how hypnosis can help means that you increase and maintain your self-belief and confidence. The confidence to get what you want can make all the difference.
