Hypnotherapy Mind control

Whether you experience pre-race anxiety or are struggling with a mental block that’s hampering your running performance, hypnotherapy could be the key to keeping you calm and unlocking your full performance potential

While many of us use running as a means to shake off stress, it’s also true that, occasionally, our favourite sport can bring with it anxieties of its own. Attempting a new PB can mean we sometimes pile pressure on ourselves. Some women experience race-day nerves so extreme they feel physically sick.

Other women may feel their performance is being kept in check by a mental block – that little voice inside their head repeating, “I’m just a slow runner”, “I’ll never get faster,” or “I won’t ever be able to run a marathon.” But if anxieties and mental blocks are getting in the way of your running enjoyment, what can you do about it? Becoming more mindful and meditation have become popular and are great ways to stay positive. But something you may not have considered yet is hypnotherapy.

About Women’s Running

In the May issue of Women’s Running, we are fast and FIERCE. We uncover 15 ways that running can make you more powerful, physically and mentally, and we’ve put them to the test. We also investigate the controversial topic of disordered eating and running: what are the warning signs to look out for in ourselves and others, and how we can support people who show symptoms of this harrowing and broad reaching mental illness that is unhappily prevalent in our community. We speak to journalist and author Bella Mackie on how she used running to manage the symptoms of her anxiety - so well, in fact, that she wrote a book about it. And we review tons of kit, including trail backpacks for days off the beaten track, some stunning neutral shoes, and fab all-weather jackets. Plus, we’ve got a training guide for a five-mile race, the ultimate marathon nutrition guide, and a lustworthy compo from Ultra - win three pairs of shoes worth £360!
