Mike Tyson, Hypnotherapy and Improving Sports Performance

Hypnosis has been increasingly used in sport during the past 50 years and has recently seen an upsurge in interest from the sports research industry as well as sports participants. 

Hypnosis to improve sports performanceCountless famous  sports personalities have used hypnosis in the past, including boxers Ken Norton, Frank Bruno, Steve Collins and Nigel Benn, former England cricket captain Mike Brearley, athlete Iwan Thomas, and golfers Tiger Woods and Ian Woosnam.

To that list you can now add Mike Tyson who recently spoke to the Daily Telegraph about how Cus D'Amato, Tyson's  legendary trainer, insisted he had daily sessions of hypnotherapy to improve his ferocity and his concentration.

Mike Tyson was one of the most intimidatory boxers of all time, renowned for getting his fights finished quickly. His first 19 fights all finished by KO and he quickly established such a fearsome profile that his opponents appeared terrified before the fight started.   

Hypnosis for sports performanceMike Tyson now attributes the ferocity of his fights to a hypnotist, who he worked with several times a day at the request of his manager Cus D'Amato.

He tells the Daily Telegraph, "Cus used to have me professionally hypnotised two or three times a day - before sparring, before training and before fights. My objective was to destroy."

Hypnosis in sport works especially effectively when used to complement other psychological interventions for anxiety, motivation, mental blocks and competition preparation. Sports Hypnosis is now widely used in many sports to help sportsmen and sportswomen (both professional and amateur) with their mental training.

Sports Hypnosis is particularly effective for:

Competition Nerves
Mental Blocks
Overcoming Slumps in Performance
Learning New Techniques
Building Confidence
Improving Focus & Concentration
Returning from Injury

Is lack of sleep making you fat? Sleep deprivation examined

Are you sleep deprived?
hypnotherapy for insomnia

Watch this video in which Russell Foster explains why we sleep.  Russell studies sleep and its role in our lives, examining how our perception of light influences our sleep-wake rhythms.Russell 

Foster briefly covers the physiological processes involved in sleep, focusing on explaining just how important sleep is to mental health. Sleep disruption is often a precursor and symptom of many mental health problems.

So if you are suffering sleep deprivation it is certainly worth considering hypnotherapy which promotes sleep by deep relaxation and is entirely natural rather than taking drugs to sleep.

Sleep deprivation leads to poor memory, poor creativity, increased impulsiveness and poor. To compound this tired brains crave things to wake them up; drugs, alcohol, and even carbohydrates

This means not only do stress levels increase but there is a direct correlation between weight gain and lost or disrupted sleep.
Foster tells us an amazing and frightening statistic. If a person has five hours of sleep or less that there is a 50% likelihood of that person being obese.

This is scary - apparently, loss of sleep leads to the release of a hormone called ghrelin in the body, and when the brain is subjected to ghrelin we seek out carbohydrates and sugars. This means there is a direct link between disrupted sleep and obesity.

And there's more - tired people get stressed. Stress leads to loss of memory, and sustained stress also leads to loss of immunity. Foster adds that; if there is continuous stress that it leads to increased glucose being released into the body. This can lead to glucose intolerance and diabetes and increases the likelihood of higher blood pressure.

Hypnotherapy can help you sleep. In fact, the word hypnotherapy comes from the Greek "hypnos", meaning sleep. Hypnosis isn't sleep, though it shares some important characteristics with it. Hypnosis is a state of consciousness in which the mind becomes very adaptable to change. In hypnosis you are able to re-write old sleep habits and reduce stress and feel relaxed in both and mind. This can help you achieve a decent nights sleep, so you wake up feeling refreshed.

Hypnosis & hypnotherapy stories

I failed my driving test six times, there I said it.
Aged 28 this was not a good thing for me, learning to drive was something I felt I should have done a lot, lot sooner, but as circumstances dictated it just never quite happened.
I’ve had plenty of lessons mind you, and whenever I had any spare money would spend it on intensive courses to try and get myself that illusive pink card.

French fireman offer pain control support to victims

French firemen are using hypnotherapy to complement first aid treatment to fire victims.

The idea is that hypnotherapy can complement traditional first aid assistance.
"These are verbal, gesticular and respiratory techniques that aim to ease pain and anxiety, but that obviously don't replace traditional first aid," explains Cecile Colas-Nguyen, a nurse and member of the fire brigade, and a trainer in hypnosis.
While firefighters arriving on the scene of an accident get to work tending to the injured or cutting a victim free, staff trained in hypnosis establish a more personal link with the person and divert his attention away from the trauma of the scene.

What's your excuse for not losing weight?

Rebecca loses 70lb of fat.

Losing weight is about changing your way of life, diets don't work - you need to change the way you think about food and exercise.

Watch this fascinating video that show how Rebecca's effort was finally rewarded using hypnotherapy.

Rebecca’s weight gain story was one of portion sizes and takeaways that were too large and that made her too large. She felt as though she was out of control of her eating behaviours and that she was spiralling downwards, getting fatter and fatter.
Finally, it was at the age of 32 that she decided that enough was enough and she needed to take action. It was at this point that she looked at gastric band surgery. However, the cost was prohibitive so when she was looking at alternatives she came across gastric band hypnotherapy.

Panicky Learner Driver Passes Test with Help of Hypnosis

Hypnotherapy helps panicky learner pass driving test

Every time 35-year-old Nikki Durrant tried to take her driving test she suffered from panic attacks – until she received hypnosis.

Nikki, from Rowardennan in Scotland, found her fear of taking the test was so severe she would burst into tears as soon as she was behind the wheel. Each time she failed a test her phobia and attacks worsened – sometimes they left her barely able to breathe.

Nikki said: "It got to the point where on my third driving test I just froze halfway through and started crying. I turned the car around and refused to go on it... On one test the instructor even slammed the brakes on before I had got out of the car park. It was horrible."

However, after failing her fourth test her husband suggested she had a session with a hypnotherapist.

After just two hours of therapy Nikki felt she was ready to take her fifth test. It turned out to be her last as she passed with flying colours.

Hypnotherapist Caroline Tyler, explained how she helped Nikki.

"She was anxious so I took her through her driving test in her head so when she did come to take it again she could associate it with a relaxed memory." Tyler also taught her breathing exercises to see her through the test.

Domestic Goddess Nigella Lawson forgot to mention a key ingredient when revealing the secret of how she lost over two stone in weight – large helpings of hypnosis.
The self-taught cook, who has sold three million cookbooks, put her impressive weight loss down to the three Ps – pilates, a personal trainer and portion control.
But Nigella, 53, also had a course of £295 sessions with a heavyweight in the hypnotherapy world – Susan Hepburn, who counts Lily Allen among her clients.

Curvy Nigella visited her Harley Street clinic in Central London, where she was induced into a “relaxed state of consciousness” before being encouraged to eat smaller, more controlled meals.
As part of the hypnotic diet, Nigella – who included a recipe for deep fried bounty bar in one of her cookbooks – was encouraged to keep a healthy eating diary between sessions.
Soon the star began publicising her progress by uploading snaps of her unusually small meals to Twitter followers.

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Programme - Lose weight quickly

Gastric Band Hypnotherapy

Imagine that you could experience the benefits of a surgical gastric band without incurring the astronomical costs or any of the potential risk that are involved with any major surgery.  Gastric Band Hypnotherapy is a proven alternative. It's safe, it’s effective & it’s quick.
Hypno Band SouthportGastric Band Hypnotherapy not only reduces your desire to overeat, it also resolves your unhealthy eating patterns eg sweet cravings , grazing, outsize portions, eating too many takeaways, drinking too much alcohol. It stops the need to overeat & promotes a healthier lifestyle, raising the likelihood of long term success. Plus as an extra bonus it will leave you with a healthy body and high self-esteem.
Gastric Band hypnosis uses hypnotherapy to convince your subconscious mind that a gastric band has been fitted. This will result in you feeling full much quicker and stop you from over eating just as though you have had a surgical gastric band fitted.
If you really want to lose weight and show the necessary commitment gastric band hypnotherapy will help you to achieve your goals. Hypnotherapy is a safe, risk free and cost effective alternative to traditional Gastric Band Surgery.
Use the power of your subconscious mind to change your relationship with food forever.
What will happen on the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy programme?
The programme consists of 4-5 sessions, each a week apart.
During the initial consultation we will take an in-depth look into your eating habits and your general health and well-being.  We will try and identify anything that has stopped you from being successful at losing weight in the past and we will plan the way forward.  We will give you clear instructions as to what will happen and what your part in it will be.  We identify and clear away some of the psychological issues getting in the way of your weight loss. This usually takes about 1 ½ hours.
In the second session we will assess your food diary for the week & address any remaining bad habits, beliefs or behaviours getting between you & successful weight loss.
A week later, we again review your food diary & if everything is on track we proceed to fit your band. If there are any ongoing negative behaviours at this point a third resolution session is required & the band will be fitted in the fourth session if you are then on track. There is simply no point in applying the band if you are still eating unhealthily at that point.
When you are ready for the fitting of your Hypno-gastric band we go through the preparation & your virtual surgery in a deep hypnotic state. The Hypno-Gastric band will be tested & retested through hypnosis to ensure it is successfully installed.
gastric band hypnotherapyThe Hypno-Gastric band is very like a jubilee clip which is tightened around the top quarter of your stomach to reduce the volume you can hold in your stomach before feeling full and to slow the passage of the food in your stomach into the colon. The opening into the bottom half of your stomach (which effectively becomes the start of your colon) is the diameter of your little finger.

As such you are very restricted in the volume of food you can hold in your reduced stomach space & feel full much more quickly & for longer than you have in the past.
Are you suitable for Gastric Band Hypnotherapy? There are some restrictions which would make the gastric band hypnotherapy unsuitable for you - if this is the case you would be better suited to traditional weight loss hypnotherapy. This would be discussed at the initial consultation and you would not be charged if you elected not to proceed.
Once you have achieved your ideal weight you should have a Band Adjustment session to enable you to maintain your weight & increase your portion sizes to non- weight loss levels

The program costs £225 and covers 6 sessions

Can Hypnotherapy help your Psoriasis?

Hypnosis (Photo credit: alvaro tapia hidalgo)

Psoriasis and Hypnotherapy

Hypnotherapy can help clients learn how to feel relaxed and at ease while improving the feel and look of their skin.  The Positive emotions can lead to healthier skin.

Clients with Psoriasis have benefited dramatically from Clinical Hypnotherapy.  The skin is the largest organ of the human body and it is very influenced by the emotions.  By working on relaxation as well as off loading old outdated patterns of behaviour, the whole Mind/Body System undergoes a shift of consciousness at the deepest level.  To put it simply the skin starts to heal and repair itself.  In the case of Psoriasis new cell growth can be slowed with Clinical Hypnotherapy and the outer skin can be given suggestion to be calm, cool and normal in feel and colour.  

Post Hypnotic cues can be given so that in the future the emotional significance of the skin condition changes to a much more positive outlook.  It is also possible to use regression to take clients back to a time when the skin was healthy and free from the limitations of the skin condition and to then update the subconscious as well as future pacing, to return the healthy pattern of skin generation to the affected site or sites.  

Psoriasis is a non contagious skin condition. Its most common form, plaque psoriasis, appears as raised, red patches or lesions covered with a silvery white build up of dead skin cells, called scale. In 10 to 30% of sufferers the psoriasis can also present as psoriatic arthritis, which causes pain, stiffness and swelling in and around the joints.
The skin is the external barrier to our body. In order to maintain its protective function it is continually growing, as the older cells reach the surface they die and are sloughed off. When psoriasis occurs in the skin the cycle of cell growth is reduced from about a month to 3 to 4 days. The increased activity produces the characteristic redness with a white flaky build up of dead skin cells. It is believed that it is the immune system that is causing the effect by sending faulty signals.
The severity of the disorder varies from person to person. Some people experience psoriasis in a small area and some people have it all over their body.

Psoriasis can also affect a person’s joints. This inflammation can lead to psoriatic arthritis. Approximately 10-15% of people with chronic psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis. Symptoms of this form of psoriasis include pain, stiffness, and inflammation of the joints. The symptoms can be pretty severe in some cases and can be disabling.

Treating psoriasis can be a challenge because the exact cause is not known. Many doctors believe that the disorder is genetic in nature. Doctors have found that certain factors can irritate psoriasis including stress, drinking alcohol, and smoking.

Quality of life

Psoriasis can have a negative impact on the quality of life. The disorder often causes severe itching, which can lead to pain. These side effects can interfere with different areas of life. Many people with psoriasis lack self-esteem and often become depressed because of their disorder.  Psoriasis and Eczema are often accompanied with feelings of low self-worth and therefore a lack of confidence. A large part of the treatment is to allow the client to re-evaluate their beliefs that maintain these feelings. Clients with Psoriasis and Eczema often feel “depressed” about the way they look or the rituals they have to go through every day.

Psoriasis Skin Disease

Severe cases of psoriasis have been shown to affect health-related quality of life to an extent similar to the effects of other chronic diseases, such as depression, hypertension, congestive heart failure or type 2 diabetes.  Depending on the severity and location of outbreaks, individuals may experience significant physical discomfort and some disability. Itching and pain can interfere with basic functions, such as self-care, walking, and sleep. Plaques on hands and feet can prevent individuals from working at certain occupations, playing some sports, and caring for family members or a home. Plaques on the scalp can be particularly embarrassing, as flaky plaque in the hair can be mistaken for dandruff. Medical care can be costly and time-consuming, and can interfere with an employment or school schedule.
Individuals with psoriasis may also feel self-conscious about their appearance and have a poor self-image that stems from fear of public rejection and psychosexual concerns. Psychological distress can lead to significant depression and social isolation.

In a 2008 National Psoriasis Foundation survey of 426 psoriasis sufferers, 71 percent reported the disease was a significant problem in everyday life. More than half reported significant feelings of self-consciousness (63 percent) and embarrassment (58 percent). More than one-third said they avoided social activities and limited dating or intimate interactions.

Many doctors put emphasis on controlling the symptoms of psoriasis because there is no known cure. Ointments, phototherapy, and prescription drugs are often prescribed, but many sufferers look to alternative therapy to help relieve their symptoms.

Hypnotherapy and Psoriasis

A study appeared in a 1999 issue of Psychotherapy and Psychosomatics testing the effectiveness of hypnosis on patients with psoriasis. The study was performed by researchers in the department of dermatology at The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

The study involved 11 patients with chronic psoriasis. All 11 participants received a form of hypnosis and all of them were either highly or moderately hypnotisable. Five patients received hypnosis with positive suggestions focusing on the improvement of their psoriasis. The remaining 6 patients received neutral hypnosis without suggestions specifically aimed at treating their psoriasis. Using these methods, all patients received hypnosis for three months.

After the initial three months, all patients were studied for an additional three months and all eleven participants received active suggestions targeting their psoriasis during their hypnosis sessions.

The researchers found that the highly hypnotisable subjects reported a much greater improvement than those who were moderately hypnotisable. They realized that it did not matter whether the form of hypnosis used active suggestions or neutral suggestions.

The researchers concluded that hypnosis should be a form a treatment in those who are highly suggestible and suffer from psoriasis. More research should be performed investigating the role hypnosis plays on treating psoriasis sufferers` symptoms.

The symptoms of most skin disorders are usually not constant, which suggests the patient has the ability to switch off symptoms. Distraction tactics such as doing something that makes you happy can cause a symptom to disappear. But thinking thoughts of a fearful nature may cause the symptom to reappear. The unconscious controls this on and off switch mechanism, and it can become habitual over time. Such learned behaviour can be unlearned using hypnosis. By changing the subconscious attitude towards particular objects, actions or situations in trance, a person can also change their reactions, reflexes, and responses to them in reality.

A reaction such as a rash may compound a person’s inability to seek help. This is often due to their problem being visible to the onlooker, making it harder to get support from family, friends, GPs, or therapists. From time to time people can literally get under the skin of the client. This is why they need to mentally protect themselves when in the presence of people who likely to cause stress. The rash may be a way for their subconscious to move away from a stressful person or situation.

The Effects of Stress on Skin 

Stress increases the vulnerability of the nervous system and this has a direct effect on the skin. The more stressed, the more the nervous system reacts in response to stress by creating a reaction. Using hypnosis as a means to relieve stress can significantly reduce negative reactions. It’s also another vital part of regaining control of autonomic functions such as breathing and heart rate. By reducing stress, the patient reduces symptoms. And by regaining control over their autonomic system they regain control of their physiological functions.

Using Imagery to Heal the Skin 

Some skin conditions respond very well to being exposed to ultra violet light. Hypnosis allows the patient to perceive imagery that has a similar effect to UV light. By imagining the sun is safely shining down, mental exposure to its healing rays can have a positive healing effect upon the skin. Similarly visualizing getting into a warm bath of healing water, feeling the water touching toes first, then feet and legs, the way a person would normally step into a bath. A spiritual person may imagine God intervening and blessing the water, making it pure and giving it the ability to heal skin.

The idea is to render up images of their skin in perfect condition as much as possible. By doing this, they are re-programming the subconscious mind to fulfil what it understands is desired. Clients imagine they are looking in a mirror & notice how their skin is beginning to clear up, focussing attention on the desired result and thinking no more about the feared reaction. “Everyday in every way my skin is getting better and better.” This type of suggestion spurs the imagination and can be also be used by the client to reinforce the message.
If the skin condition started at a certain age, a useful technique is to regress the client back in time to see their skin as it was before the condition started. By associating in the present how their skin felt back then, the subconscious can revert back to a once used program, thus making the physiological responses the same again.

Psoriasis and eczema can be irritating and extremely painful at times. In milder cases of eczema the skin becomes dry, flaky, hot, and itchy. In more severe cases it can get broken, raw, and bleed. The causes of eczema are difficult to identify; but as always, psychological forces are more than likely attributing to the maintenance and agitation of the symptom, thus making it difficult to overcome through purely medicinal means. A traumatic experience may trigger the beginning of a skin disorder such as eczema. A shock to the system can cause the body to manifest the disease, as eczema is often an outward expression of an internal crisis.

Outbreaks of psoriasis and eczema will happen through times of increased stress. Financial difficulty, dry humid conditions, pollen, dust-mites, certain foods, drinks, and preservatives, contact with yeast, tobacco, detergent, and even blood circulation can bring it on. As with allergies, the immune system sees the stimulus as a threat and produces an unnecessary response in the skin such as shedding or flaking. Hypnosis can alter this response by using a protective shield or imaginary pane of glass to gradually expose the client to the stimuli that aggravates the skin. By using such techniques, over time the immune system eventually stops overreacting.

Using Glove Anaesthesia to Stop Itching and Scratching 

Glove anaesthesia is a good technique for altering the perception to sensitivity. It involves numbing a clients hand through use of imagery, in order to gain relief from itchy areas that tend to be scratched more than others. It can take a few attempts to get right, but is worth persevering with as it can be used to help a range of problems.

As long as a client can achieve a medium state of hypnotism they should experience some positive results with this method though the client must be assessed fully to ensure the appropriate approach is adopted. It is possible with some clients to instil a post-hypnotic trigger using the glove anaesthesia method by suggesting the client will experience glove analgesia when they think or say an appropriate phrase like “I feel my hand getting numb”.  The hand is then placed on the area of discomfort thus transferring the numbness to the area. Methods to achieve this include: imagining a nerve block injection, imagining a bowl of ice or the application of a safe numbing substance.
