Course content
This course has been designed to allow delegates to analyse their own responses to pressure and produce practical strategies to face daily challenges and become more effective using Hypnotherapy and Cognitive approaches in business and Sports
Stress leads to a state of physical, mental and emotional exhaustion that can interfere with your ability to successfully keep up with your commitments and effectively run your business. Burnout, financial difficulties
Many of the happiest, most successful, well-adjusted people are those who have learned to respond to high levels of stress in a positive and balanced way
In a world where we’re constantly rushing around: We all know that life isn’t that simple and that throughout our journey in life we might face numerous challenges, problems and setbacks.
Sometimes we take a hit. We fall ill, lose jobs, fight with loved ones, financial worries, being overworked you are under a lot of pressure, struggling with your health, don’t like your job, lack a sense of direction or a feeling of hope.
The difference between people who succeed in life and those who don’t is their ability to face life challenges correctly and not the absence of challenges.
This workshop will help you discover how to turn defeats and setbacks into successes: Improve your ability to grasp what is driving a particular situation and adapt your behaviour to gain the most beneficial outcome.
Using cutting-edge techniques, this interactive seminar will empower you with the techniques you need to get the best out of yourself and others in business and sport .
The quality of your performances in business and sport is largely determined by the quality of the mental states you live in day to day, and your ability to adapt – states like gratitude, love, anger, happiness, fear and excitement.
There are two main ways to control your state of mind. Either by controlling the way you use your physical body, or by controlling your focus of attention and the way you interpret it.
What happens in your life does not determine how you feel. How you feel is only the result of how you are using your own mind and body at any moment.
Sport and business is a difficult arena to succeed in. Using cutting-edge
Hypnotherapy and cognitive techniques with Jimmy Petruzzi will empower you with the techniques you need to get the best out of yourself and others. From high-paced sales to the management of successful teams, this workshop enables you to adapt and succeed in an ever changing environment.
Elite athletes know that there is as little as 1% difference between being the best, and being at the back of the field. This workshop is a simple, concise and ground-breaking guide to Hypnotherapy and cognitive techniques that can give you that extra 1%, whether in sports, business or life in general.
