Low performance in sports symptoms

How to tell if sports hypnosis can help you

It is one thing to train and prepare the body perfectly. If it weren't for the head, which keeps many an athlete from winning. Because what is clear is that above a certain high level of performance, there are only subtle differences between athletes. Not infrequently, the head and the ability to focus then decides whether someone goes out as a winner. In sports hypnosis, inner tension is dissolved and people learn to regulate inner tension and execute movements perfectly. This makes top performance possible.

In competitions, people show up with different symptoms and reactions at the physical and psychological level:

Physical Symptoms
Physically, people may experience symptoms such as inner tension and restlessness before and during competitions and sports. Movement sequences can become unclear, performance that previously came easily from the hand is not achieved physically. Weakness and physical exhaustion due to mental stress can cause athletes to perform far below their capabilities.
Psychological Symptoms
Psychological symptoms can manifest themselves in sports and competitions in a lack of concentration, pressure, fear of failing and not being good enough, and can escalate to anxiety and strong feelings of failure. Movement patterns become less clear under pressure and goals can be harder to achieve.

An example from golf

To illustrate an example from golf: A client reports that he cannot play golf properly in front of spectators and then constantly makes mistakes. When he is alone, his strokes work perfectly. He feels observed, uncomfortable and gets nervous when others watch him. And that's when his mind starts to think negatively about how others are not only watching him, but maybe laughing. Like when he was supposed to recite a poem at school and got stuck in the middle. These thoughts can run consciously - but they don't have to. Many things are unconscious to us humans and we often rather notice a feeling of uneasiness without being able to relate it concretely to something or explain it. The client may have an unconscious fear of evaluation situations, which can have many different causes. With hypnosis this fear comes to light and the client has a clue to work on.

Dissolve pressure, fear of failure and blockages with sports hypnosis

If your subconscious mind wants it, you can also win. If not, you have little chance. Making the subconscious "willing" works with sports hypnosis and mental training. With the hypnosis technique, together we succeed in penetrating the depths of your subconscious and dissolving stuck patterns and blockages there.

Athletic performance low self test

Am I suffering from a performance slump?

The following questions can be the first clues as to whether you are mentally standing in your own way in your sport right now:
  • 1

    Do you suddenly feel insecure when others observe you doing sports and do you tend to make mistakes then?
  • 2

    Do you experience any of the following symptoms: increase in heart rate and palpitations, sweating, trembling, and dry mouth.
  • 3

    Are you afraid of failing when it matters?
  • 4

    Do you experience uncertainty when exercising, and do you feel that you have a poor ability or inability to handle nervousness and excitement before an approaching sporting event?
  • 5

    Do you have the impression that you get in your own way the most and possible victories fail to materialize as a result?
If you can answer yes to any of these questions and feel limited in your everyday life and living, it might be important to seek mental support. You may be experiencing a performance slump. Please note that questions are always asked broadly, so it is possible for athletes who are not affected by a performance low to receive a positive result. Not everyone who is excited before a competition or game suffers from a performance low.

Causes of poor athletic performance

Pressure, stress and fear before competition

Athletes can get into a performance slump due to a variety of causes, for example injuries, inner conflict situations or traumatic experiences. Sports hypnosis aims at releasing these blockages and restoring or, more precisely, surpassing the original performance. It has been known for a long time that sports do not only depend on physical abilities, but also on mental strength. Body and soul must be in harmony in order to deliver the maximum performance. This applies to sports as well as to other performance situations.

Consequences of poor athletic performance

What can be the consequences of insecurity in sports?

The consequences of not using sports hypnosis can be devastating in professional sports: There, seconds, single moments often decide entire sports careers and lives. And just knowing this shows the pressure situations professional athletes find themselves in. Don't leave it to chance and make sure you are properly prepared at the right moment, not only physically but also mentally. But even if you are a passionate amateur athlete, not getting ahead and staying in the same place can lead to great frustration in the long run. It would be just too bad if frustration, leads to you turning away from your beloved sport. What are the possible consequences of not using sports hypnosis and mental training?

Summarize the consequences as follows:
  • Low performance
  • Giving away one's own potential
  • Missing opportunities and gains
  • Demotivation
  • Inaccurate movements
  • Frustration over defeats and quitting the sport

Poor Performance - Consequences

If insecurity, increased pressure or fear play a role in sports, athletes have a lot at stake: Athletes not only give away their own potential, but also make themselves insecure for future sporting events. As a result, opportunities are missed, which in the long run can lead to demotivation, frustration and even quitting the sport.

Sports Hypnosis

For Performance Enhancement: Top Athletic Performance even when under Pressure

Sports hypnosis is a form of modern hypnotherapy. Sports hypnosis is not only useful for athletes from the competitive and world-class sports segment, amateur, recreational and hobby athletes also benefit from it. Performance increases can be achieved with sports hypnosis in almost all sports areas. For athletes from the areas of cycling, weight training, golf, kayaking or pentathlon, mental training and hypnosis have long been part of good training and competition preparation. Sports hypnosis is successfully used in these areas:
  • Release of inner tension before and during the competition
  • Conscious regulation of inner tension and perfect execution of movements
  • Muscle building
  • Improvement of motivation, in team sports improvement of cohesion and team spirit
  • Enabling peak performance: being able to call up all physical potentials and resources precisely

The hypnosis principle to improve performance in sports

This is how the desired improvement occurs: Every athlete has different mental strategies that he uses before training and competition. It is enormously important to prepare his mind for the upcoming situation. Sports hypnosis invests in and enhances these methods. For example, stuck patterns are revised through simple self-hypnotic exercises that the client learns in the hypnosis practice. It is not possible to put oneself in a deep hypnotic (trance-like) state before every competition. For this reason, sports hypnosis is aimed more at waking hypnosis, so that normal movements are still possible and the exercises can be easily implemented in everyday life.

Treating poor performance with hypnosis

Hypnosis addresses the experience of involuntary processes. Even the execution of movements in sports does not only happen consciously. Do you really know down to the smallest detail how you execute your stroke in golf or tennis? That is not possible at all, because there are an enormous number of involuntary processes at work here, which you have stored in your subconscious. Even victory and defeat, as well as your motivation, take place in part on the unconscious level. The subconscious is invisible, but it can have an enormous influence on your thoughts and your body. It pushes you to think and act in certain situations that you may not want to. On the physical level, it has an influence on physical parameters, such as pulse, blood pressure or even your body coordination. Involuntary processes manage to supersede the voluntary ones. They are stronger and act faster. So are we all just puppets of our subconscious mind? To a certain extent this is true, but hypnosis helps us to make the unconscious visible and to be able to understand it. Sport Hypnosis Berlin supports you to focus better and to be able to call up your full performance and the right movement at the right moment.
