  • The Facts
  • Autism affects more than 1 in 100 people – Over 700,000 people in UK are autistic, which means that 2.8m people have a relative on the autism spectrum. Which means that potentially we will have a percentage of these individuals or relatives coming through our clinics doors. Autism is a developmental disability. It’s a DIFFERENCE in how the brain works.

  • The Myths
  • Everyone is a bit autistic? – While everyone might recognise some autistic traits or behaviours in people they know, to be diagnosed with autism, a person must consistently display behaviours across all the different areas of the condition. Just having a fondness for routines, a good memory or being shy doesn’t make a person 'a bit autistic'. Autism is a mental health problem. Not all people with Autism experience mental health problems, however due to lack of effective support and knowledge of the condition there is sadly a high percentage that do!.

    Sports Performance Hypnosis Workshop

    Sunday 14th May 2017 Half Day Workshop 10am - 1pm

    This half day workshop is being delivered by Trevor Eddolls and is being held at The Old Rectory Clinic, High Street, Iron Acton, BS37 9UQ. The Aim of this workshop is to understand how to help your clients improve their Sports Performance through the use of Hypnosis. We explore how the brain works and different techniques of visualisation and relaxation with the use of practical exercises to endorse the lessons. This is a tailored workshop for a maximum of 24 people in a comfortable and friendly environment running from 10:00am - 1:00pm. The workshop costs £40.00 and includes the following:

  • All accompanying training notes
  • Certificate of attendance - this event counts as 3 Hours of CPD.
  • Morning tea and cakes.
  • Free parking.

    Sports hypnosis can help athletes to improve their performance to get to the absolute top of their chosen sport.

    It can be used to:

  • Reinforce established sporting goals
  • Increase motivation
  • Improve bodily awareness
  • Handle nervousness
  • Manage stress
  • Be able to relax
  • Ignore distractions
  • Control pain.

    The workshop will look at how the brain works and common problems that athletes face – choking, dartitis, yips, target panic, etc – and talk about paralysis by analysis, and how it can be avoided, and dealing with negativity.

    We’ll look at different types of visualization and how they can be used to improve performance both in and out of trance. We’ll look at relaxation both away from events and at events. We’ll look at the kind of language to use. And we’ll look at practice in and out of trance.

    We'll look at getting 'in the zone'. We'll talk about Mihály Csíkszentmihályi's idea of flow – the mental state of operation in which a person performing an activity is fully immersed in a feeling of energized focus, full involvement, and enjoyment in the process of the activity. And we'll look at Owen Schaffer's seven flow conditions.

    We will also look at hypnotherapy and NLP techniques to bring all this together to help produce the best athlete possible.
