Performance Enhancement Q&A

How do athletes benefit from performance enhancement?

Athletes strive to be in the “zone,” that hyper-focused mental state where they’re immersed in the game, performance is at its peak, and success comes easily. 

To achieve your top performance, you need sharp mental focus, concentration, and visualization. Unfortunately, many issues can prevent you from reaching that state.

Fear of failure, fear of the competition, and even fear of humiliation can block your focus and hinder your performance. If the challenge is below your skill level or your skills aren’t up to the challenge, you’ll lose focus. 

You need a certain level of anxiety to perform at your best, but too much anxiety blocks your ability. You can improve all of these issues and others that affect your performance with hypnotherapy.

How does sexual dysfunction benefit from performance enhancement?

The way sexual dysfunction affects your performance depends on the underlying problem. For some, a medical problem such as erectile dysfunction, low libido, and pain during intercourse cause sexual dysfunction.

But there are many reasons for sexual dysfunction that aren’t always obvious. For example, stress, anger, fear, depression, and distrust can significantly interfere with intercourse, even if you don’t associate them with the problem.

Your body image, being overweight, and plain old fatigue can lead to sexual dysfunction. Additionally, a history of sexual abuse certainly challenges your ability to have a healthy sexual relationship.

While medical problems need treatment by a physician, mind-related issues can be overcome with personalized hypnotherapy.

How does performance enhancement benefit from hypnotherapy?

Hypnosis is an effective treatment for eliminating negative mindsets and defeating anxiety and stress. Through hypnotherapy, you can:

  • Relax your mind
  • Eliminate distractions
  • Learn to focus on the task at hand
  • Overcome anxiety and stress
  • Improve your confidence
  • Improve your coordination
  • Learn to visualize

Visualization or guided imagery works well in sports and sexual performance. The process of creating a mental image of what you want to happen helps you feel prepared, calm, and confident.

During hypnotherapy, Loretta incorporates techniques such as age regression so you can effectively recover from a past event that affects your performance. 

She also specializes in preventing self-sabotage and eliminating self-destructive behaviors that interfere with performance.
