Hypnosis is the key to great golf. Hypnosis is the most wonderful, most incredible “rescue club” that will ever be available to a golfer. There is nothing that comes close to hypnosis. You may say “what about NLP?” NLP is absolutely fantastic; it is an application of hypnosis – it was developed from Ericksonian hypnosis and applies hypnotic principles. Many people “dumb down” the hypnotic aspect of NLP, but hypnosis is in reality what gives it its power. NLP without hypnosis would be like a car with no engine. They go hand in hand.
Why is golf hypnosis so valuable? If you agree that great golf is 90% in your mind (or even if you think it’s only 50% mental) it follows that it is at least equally important to learn how to think well in golf as it is to be able to swing the club.
Golf is a tricky game to learn. The club is long when compared to those used in other sports, the ball is smaller and the distances covered greater. It’s a difficult game to learn and requires diligence and practice as well as good hand-eye co-ordination. I think we will also agree that a few lessons with the pro are also essential to make for a better technique and more consistent application of the clubface onto the ball.
All this takes a great deal of time and effort. Once you have learned the basics you can hit that ball around the course adequately, you feel good, and then most of us start to try to get better. Once we get to a position where we realize that “I could be good at this” another element enters the equation. The game becomes more important, and more emotion goes into it. Your mind now holds greater importance in your golf game. Logic and emotions are like oil and water, and your emotions will always get the upper hand. Thus you need to know how to train your golf mind to contain and control your emotions.
Hypnosis is perfect for this. Hypnosis is a state of relaxation and so in learning hypnosis you learn how to change state in an instant. This is a valuable asset in golf. Hypnosis allows access to your subconscious mind, where instinctive patterns of thought and reactions are stored. Therefore you can use golf hypnosis to change those emotional reactions which tend to bubble to the surface and sit there, like an oily film, totally smothering your logical mind. It is very important to train your golf brain how to wash away that film of oil and think clearly and logically and you can do this with the help of golf hypnosis.
I’m sure you are beginning to see why hypnosis is indeed the key to playing great golf. How else can you control instinctive reactions? These reactions come from your subconscious mind, not your conscious mind. You have to access your subconscious mind to enable change and hypnosis does exactly this.
Once you really get into your golf you discover how important it is to visualize your shot. Everyone can visualize, although some people think that they cannot. Whether you think you can visualize or think that you cannot, hypnosis will empower you to greater ability in this department. Hypnosis also allows your more creative mind to surface, making it easier to visualize those golf shots, adding intensity and therefore greater impact to your visualizations. Whatever you imagine you create and this can be seen very dramatically in golf; it pays to learn how to effectively visualize what you want to happen, and no what you don’t!
Now, I could go on and on and on about the ways in which hypnosis is the key to great golf but I think I have already made my point. Golf hypnosis is essential to playing well. Hypnosis is a state of mind which enables you to train your conscious, your subconscious and your imagination to work together, to work in alignment when you play golf.
I know this to be true. I am a hypnotherapist, golf psychologist and passionate golfer. I developed the GolferWithin golf hypnosis cds back in 2006 and know the results which people have achieved as a result of using my “mental skills tool-kit”. As I developed this program of golf hypnosis and NLP skills, I set out to provide golfers with an easy way in which to learn every mental skills there is in great golf. That was my intent and that is what I did. If you are serious about your golf and want to improve, golf hypnosis is the quickest and easiest way in which you will knock shots off your handicap.
Don’t just trust what I am saying. This is what Eddie Birchenough, Golf Coach and Professional at Royal Lytham and St Annes Golf Club has to say about golf hypnosis:
“Roseanna Leaton is a very experienced psychologist and hypnotherapist who is making a serious contribution to the art of learning golf. Her simple yet flexible methods help golfers to learn the game easily rather than being issued with complex instruction. “We don’t know what we are taught, we only know what we learn” might well be her banner statement.
As a coach of some 45 years experience myself, I have learned so much from Roseanna. How the mind must be cleared before more information can be taken in, how the subconscious does not recognize negatives and how important visualization is to the golfer. These are just a few of the subjects that I never understood the importance of over the years. Absorbing them into my coaching techniques has improved my success rate immeasurably. I cannot emphasize the value of Roseanna’s work too much and would recommend it to any golfer who is serious about improving their game.”
There are lots of golf hypnosis cds and downloads easily available to every golfer. They are a lot cheaper than a new set of clubs, and a lot more effective in improving your game quickly and painlessly. Hypnosis is the engine which powers a great golf mind.
