Hypnosis for Sports – Darts

What separates a good sports performer from a true champion? ‘THE MIND’!!!

You can calculate and formulate a plan to be at your very best, train hard, eat right and rest to allow your body to recuperate. However without the right mind set you will never perform to your true potential.

The mind is as important as the body in obtaining victory.

Hypnosis is being used by more and more sports people to improve their game. This is because it is the ideal way to get both the physical and mental aspects working together.

There is a long history of hypnosis in sport proving how performance can be radically improved in many areas, style correction, speed, time distortion and strength enhancements are just a few of the benefits. One of the most closely guarded secrets of professional sports players is hypnosis.

Hypnosis in sports

The use of hypnosis in sports has been around for hundreds of years. In the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, the Russian Olympic team took no less than 11 hypnotists to develop mental clarity and help the athletes with visualization.

In 1996 Steve Collins beat Chris Eubank for the World Boxing Organizations Super-middleweight title, his success being attributed to the focusing of attention created by hypnosis. Collins was programmed to deliver two punches to Eubank’s one. In the fight Eubank threw 300 punches, Collins threw over 600.

Nigel Benn, WBC Super Middleweight Champion and Frank Bruno, WBC Heavyweight Champion both used Sports hypnosis for boxing performance enhancement, Golfers Ian Woosnam and Tiger Woods were hypnotized. Along with numerous other top professional sports men and women that Elliott continues to work with.

Play better darts

Imagine the flow of the dart being effortless, in your mind the board is three times the size and as you throw each dart it lands exactly where you projected it too, hitting the 140’s and over consistently.

Hypnosis for playing darts allows you to stay focused throughout the whole match, ensuring you take out the double and stay ahead each leg.

Phil Taylor is a perfect example of a darts player that uses hypnosis, have you ever noticed how he drags past both eyes before throwing? That’s because he’s setting of a post-hypnotic suggestion that allows him to see a plumbline from the target to his darts.

Hypnosis can help you get past those stumbling blocks where the legs go the other way, you know when it should have been yours (you should be beating this player your saying to yourself but you are not and the tone of voice, your whole body posture is full of self-doubt) and you just can’t shift these negative thought patterns, your average starts to drop. The next time you play darts, you already have that negative self-fulfilling prophecy deep inside you, you know you could take him if you were on form, somehow you just can’t seem to switch it on, you can’t find your natural rhythm you snatch at the darts. With hypnosis, we can set up a trigger to ensure this doesn’t happen, a trigger which is in your mind that fires of mental confidence.

Hypnosis for playing better darts can help with…

  • Feel like you need help getting back your winning streak
  • Address negative-self talk
  • Seeing the game from a whole new perspective
  • Increase your doubles
  • Score 140’s and even 180’s more consistently

Hypnosis is being used by more and more sportspeople to improve their game. This is because it is the ideal way to get both the physical and mental aspects working together. If you cannot imagine it – you cannot be it! To be able to perform you need to believe you can do it. Often, the problem lies in you subconsciously focusing on your past failures, rather than your future successes.

The point is to practice physically and mentally. The physical bit I can’t help you with – you need to get out there and practice. Now the mental bit is my specialist subject.
