There has been a long history of hypnosis in sport, often used under different names such as mental or autogenic training. In Les Cunningham’s renowned book called “Hypnosport”, during the 1978/79 tour of Australia, England cricket captain Mike Brearley consulted a medical hypnotherapist.
In the 1956 Melbourne Olympics, the Russian team took 11 hypnotists with them. There are increasing numbers of athletes in various sports who use hypnotic techniques to help them improve their performance to become great champions.
The greatest of champions and athletes also tend to be the ones who have learned to think forward with positivity and can see success: demonstrating their mastery of the psychology of their individual sport.
