WORKING WITH ATHLETES
There is a vast client market of athletes looking for the secrets of being a champion. All top athletes are looking for how to get that mental edge over their competition while others are looking to overcome performance anxiety and mental blocks. This market ranges from Olympic hopefuls, college athletes, adults training for marathons and even elementary aged kids. An athlete’s success is 10% physical and 90% mental! Hypnosis helps them reach their peak performance!
Working with an athlete is a bit different than working with many of the other clients hypnotists typically see. Most athletes already have a clear sense of goals, what they need to improve and what they want to achieve. A successful hypnotist must help give the athlete that extra piece of the puzzle (mental toughness and confidence) as well as help him develop a Mental Toughness Training Program.
In this class, I will share a step-by-step approach that will guarantee success with every athlete. We will look at proven techniques, client forms and required homework. We also will discuss the importance of visualization, personal power words and self-hypnosis as we explore the secrets to working with athletes.
