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.

11 Weird and Wonderful Uses for Hypnosis

twitter fail image

Twitter Ye Not
Using Twitter to get rid of writer’s block is a technique being used by Berkshire-based hypnotherapist Tom Evans. In just 13 minutes, Tom claims he can show you how you can use the 140 characters of Twitter and a blog to structure and write a whole book.

hypnotherapy for phobisaAfter answering an advert appealing for phobics to come forward for a TV programme, a woman from Essex had her irrational fear of maggots cured. Before the therapy she made her fisherman husband strip off and shower outside after fishing trips and feared that maggots were targeting her house. "My phobia was really affecting my life,” she said. “Every day I would worry that I would hear the word or see one. I've even got a jar of Robert's maggots in my fridge now."
Hypnotherapy for IBS
Hypnotherapy may be able to cure irritable bowel syndrome after trials showed it has a 70 per cent success rate. Doctors claim the mind relaxing technique combats the condition, which causes constipation, diarrhoea, cramps and nausea. The treatment is so successful that there is an 18-month waiting list of people lining up to try the therapy at Manchester's Wythenshawe Hospital.

Hypnotherapy for PhobiaA woman who was so sacred of fruit that she couldn't bear to have a fruit bowl in the house was cured of the bizarre phobia through a session of hypnotherapy. “I'm now able to peel an apple and a banana for my children and I feel really proud that I actually have a fruit bowl in the house," she said after the treatment. "I used to worry about passing my phobia on, but luckily it has had the opposite effect - the kids adore fruit.
Hypnotherapy for nerves
Learning to drive
Back in 2006 a Norfolk driving school become the first in the country to offer hypnotherapy to help nervous learners pass their tests. Kimberley Mercer, the driving school’s hypnotherapist, said: “It is the little voice inside them I speak to and I turn around those negative thoughts.”

Hypnotherapy for smoking
Smoking and Scampi Fries
30-a-day smoker Darren Corbett had his cigarette cravings cured by a hypnotist at his local pub, but ended up with an addiction to seafood-flavoured snack Scampi Fries instead. He now spends £11 a day on them, almost twice as much as he used to spend on ciggies. “When my mates go outside for a smoke, I sit inside and munch,” said Corbett.

Hypnotherapy for pain reliefPain Free Childbirth
Hypnosis can be used to create relaxation during contractions in childbirth. It also helps to create a positive, trusting attitude toward the labour and birthing processes. Stress hormones are eliminated that are fundamentally responsible for the pain in childbirth. Instead, wonderful endorphins that are your body's natural pain relievers (and nature's love drug) are elevated, thus keeping the labouring mother in a state of relaxation and having a sense of well-being. Kate Middleton is believed to have used it in the recent birth of baby George.

Post-hypnotic suggestion
Hypnotherapy Perhaps one of the most important aspects of hypnosis is its ability to suggest and influence courses of action to people both inside of and outside the hypnotic trance. A suggestion given within a state of hypnosis that will have effect outside is called a post-hypnotic suggestion. These types of suggestions can have a profound and meaningful effect when trying to influence discordant habitual behaviour like smoking or gambling.

healthy eating
Chicken Nuggets
Imagine eating nothing but chicken nuggets and chips for 18 years, a student was recently weaned off her unhealthy diet by a hypnotherapist and started to eat vegetables and pasta. Since she was two-years-old Carla Laban was violently sick after every meal unless it was chicken nuggets, but now she is starting to enjoy other foods. McDonalds aren’t too please though!
According to Australian psychologist Dr Janet Hall hypnosis can help cure women of sex phobias such as the fear of sperm and vaginismus, a fear of intercourse. "I've found that with hypnosis you can get them to rehearse the sex act in the safety of their own imagination," Dr Hall told a conference in Sydney.

Last year a man who could not afford a dentist's bill had two rotten teeth and roots removed without an anaesthetic, thanks to hypnosis. Leslie Mahon from Colchester said: "It was incredible. There is no worse pain than that inflicted by dentists but I didn't feel any.”

Forensic hypnosis

Hypnotherapy for memory lossHypnosis has been used often in enhancing the memory of participants in criminal court cases, primarily with victims or witnesses to enhance the memory of the event. It was used in the cases of Ted Bundy, Sam Shepherd and Albert DeSalvo, the Boston Strangler. In the case of DeSalvo, it was used with the defendant himself.

Hypnosis & hypnotherapy stories

In Bedford Today reporter Hayley O’Keeffe writes about how hypnosis saved her from a lifetime of catching the bus.

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.

Read the article by Clemmie Moodie in the Daily Mirror. 
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
