Sports Psychology and Peak Performance

How Can Hypnosis Help You Improve Your Game?

“Richard, I did it. I am world champion. Thank you so much for all your coaching and support.”

How many times have you said, “I’m going to miss this?” Do you turn up to the same event with a “funny feeling” in the pit of your stomach? Do you always “blow it” in the same shot, against a similar or same person or team or on certain days?

If you do, then you might be pleased to know that this “limiting pattern” – one that you have learned – can be changed permanently, with my proven expertise in Sports Psychology, using NLP, Coaching and Hypnosis.

In its place you can get excellent results consistently by being able to enter “Peak Performance States”.

Mastering your brain and being able to enter the appropriate states for games you love brings a whole lot of happiness. André Agassi did this several years ago, after realising he was stuck because of the way he was using his mind. He kept telling himself he was going to “blow it” when he got out on the tennis court. Guess what happened? Yep, he blew it – and he started to believe he could never “get it back”. Finally, he said, “I can’t let this go on. I NEED TO CHANGE and I can’t do it alone”.

It actually takes a very short time to recondition yourself so you consistently get the results you want. If you realise that you are consistently under-performing in one area, then you owe it to yourself to break through.

Using the art and science of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, I have modelled some of the best patterns from stars of the world of tennis, golf and clay pigeon shooting. These people consistently have a way of thinking – which is automatic – and which can become automatic for you.

Instead of finding yourself on a tennis court, on the links or on any piece of turf saying “I’m not sure about this one”, wouldn’t it be worth having the certainty that you can blast through any limitations fast?

“I got all my confidence back with the course of hypnosis after having a fall and losing all my confidence on the trampoline.”

“After working with Richard for my first session, the next day I came second in a major shooting tournament and now have won competitions I thought I would never win.” 
– Ian Scott

“I have been a keen tennis player for many years. However, one thing was regularly holding me back; my backhand. I could play the occasional good backhand shot, but it was too inconsistent and generally undependable. As a keen player and member of my local Esporta team, I wanted to improve so I could compete at a higher level.

Although sceptical, I attempted hypnotherapy with Richard Haggerty as an approach to help me improve my backhand. Having never experienced hypnotherapy I didn’t know what to expect; but he put me at ease instantly, explaining he would simply help me focus my mind to tap into more of my potential. The experience was incredibly relaxing and felt like a tennis lesson for my brain! The session only lasted 45 minutes, but the improvement in my backhand has been awesome.

The same week after working with Richard, I won a singles tournament at Esporta.

My backhand has been very consistent over the last year which has helped my confidence. I can only attribute this to Richard’s assistance in getting me “in the zone,” as he calls it. Finally, after 15 years of trying my backhand is now a strong and dependable shot! I now understand why it hadn’t improved before, I had the capability, but it was my brain that needed fixing!!

I am now a convert to his approaches and believe that coaches should consider combining some of Richard’s techniques to accelerate the learning of their players; it would allow them to overcome the mental blocks we all have.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Richard, and will be having more sessions with him when he is next in Coventry.”
