Focus on the details to improve sports performance comes from the saying how you do one thing is how you do everything. Many people focus so much on big goals, or big results that they fail to pay attention to the small details of their life and performance. How someone approaches and does the small things in life will tell me a lot about how they are doing with the bigger things. Let’s use an example. Let’s talk about reliability for the sake of creating an example. People want to be seen as reliable, and have reliable performance (consistent). However, they often are unreliable with themselves on the small seemingly insignificant day to day things. If you can’t rely on yourself to do small things, how will you trust yourself to be reliable when it really counts? Each moment of our lives prepares us for the moment we are wishing or hoping for.

No you will not feel hypnotized, which can be confusing due to what people see within stage shows, where people are made to do many funny things.

WILL I STILL BE IN CONTROL? Yes you will still be in control, when you are doing hypnosis for sports you will still...More Information

Due to this fact it is often hard to measure results, such as confidence, focus, decision making etc. Where as the physical elements of performance are easier to measure. You can know if you are getting stronger, faster, quicker, etc. An assessment tool is a great way in the world of psychology to measure the topics covered within sport psychology. It allows for a bit more scientific evidence which can help clarify the direction that needs to be taken, rather than solely relying on the opinion of the practitioner. For my clients I use The Test of Attentional and Interpersonal Style Inventory (TAIS). I use this because it was designed specifically for athletes and measures aspects of performance such as attention that other assessment tools don’t measure. To help you understand TAIS and its benefits more here is some further information on it. The Attentional and Interpersonal Style (TAIS)...More Information
