Hypnotherapy for Football Performance


Hypnotherapy for Football Performance

The Euros have kicked off and the group games are advancing at pace. Sadly Wales aren’t there this time but I’m loving watching as many of the games as I can. There have been some tight games, at least one big shock and plenty of goals have been flying in. It’s always fun watching teams who I don’t normally get to watch and playing in a competition where the fans are excited and every game means something.

If you play football then you’ll already know that your mindset is just as important as your skill levels and physical fitness. If you want to perform at your best you need to be focused and confident. You need to manage your thoughts, feelings and emotions before kick off and through to the final whistle.

No matter what level you play at, all sorts of things can get in the way of your performance on the field. General life stress and anxiety, and other things off the pitch, can affect how you play. You may struggle with injury and getting back into playing because of the fear of another injury occurring. There can be setbacks after you make a mistake or if your team are on a losing streak. You may doubt yourself if you aren’t in the first team consistently. There can be comments from coaches, team mates, opposition players or spectators that get into your head and lead to doubt, negativity and indecision. And a host of other negative thoughts and feelings can damage your self belief, lead to negative self talk and interfere with your ability to perform at your best.

You can probably think back over times you’ve performed well and been pleased with your playing. You know you can play well, yet psychological issues can seemingly block you from drawing upon that capability consistently. It can become a negative habit that stops you playing well and can even ruin your enjoyment of the game. Things can happen during a game that adversely impact upon you. You want to be able to go into a game knowing you can perform to the best of your capability, manage your own self-talk and thinking, and remain resilient enough to handle whatever comes your way.

Hypnotherapy for football performance can help you to boost your performance, strengthen your confidence and be in control over you thoughts, feelings, actions and reactions on and off the field.


Football Performance Hypnotherapy

Research has demonstrated that hypnosis can be a very effective tool for helping you to enhance and improve your sports performance. Hypnosis has been shown to be effective for improving performance in a variety of sports, with some of the strongest support being for football.

Hypnotherapy for football is something that I’ve covered in previous articles:

Hypnosis for football performance can help you to build confidence and self-belief, reduce anxiety and stress and to develop motivation and focus in your training and in matches. Research has examined the effects of psychological skills interventions in football and has found that these can help you with things such as being able to manage tension when performance isn’t going well, such as after you make a mistake, have a bad first touch or lose control of the ball (which can undermine your confidence and lead to increased tension and so more performance errors).

Football confidence hypnotherapy can help you with improving your performance with your first touch, passing and tackling during a match, as well as being able to quickly recover when any of these doesn’t go quite right for you. All of these things, along with learning how to manage your thoughts and feelings, can help you to consistently perform at your best, recover from set-backs and to keep improving as a player.

Alongside the general excitement of the Euros, one thing I enjoy watching is the psychology of world class players. Through the games you can observe how their confidence grows when things go well, alongside their resilience when up against it. Even at the top level, some players seem to doubt their own ability sometimes and struggle with mistakes (often going on to make another mistake). On the flip side there is the positive mindset and confidence that radiates from a player when his playing is going well and things are happening for him. Whilst fitness, technique and skill come into it, you can really tell when a player knows how to manage their own psychology during a match. The tournament has started well and let’s hope that the excitement continues to grow and grow through to the final.

To your football confidence and success,
