Hi everyone,

 

My name is DJ. I am a certified hypnotist and doctoral student in Sports Psychology at Victoria University, Melbourne. 

I am currently doing research on using hypnosis to enhance golf performance (putting in particular).

 

I would like to know what you think about the effect of hypnosis on golf performance. If you have not had experience with hypnosis, your first impression when hearing about this topic will be appreciated.

 

I look forward to hearing your opinions.

Thank you very much in advance!

 

DJ

I have a book by Dr Arthur Jackson titled Eye on the ball Mind on the game.(1996) Jack Newton wrote the forward. I suspect Jackson is Dr James Arthur Jackson who got himself in a bit of bother with a patient/s and the book was a means of revenue.
It is probably one of the best mind control publications relating to golf that I have read.

My idea of hypnosis when playing golf is you would use a trigger to put yourself into the "zone" and when that particular event is completed you would then carry on until the next event is called upon and you utilise the trigger to get into the "zone" again and keep repeating for the 18 holes.

I used hypnosis to give up smoking in 2005 (after 35 years of smoking and many attempts to give up). I'm seriously considering using hypnosis now to cure the mental side of my golf as it's basically stuffed.

My dad just quit after 50 years of smoking as well... 6 months on not a single cigarette... after a pack a day that's amazing.

 

Hypnosis is amazing.

I have huge sooking problems.  Three times today I 3 putted after a bad chip shot.  Often follow a bad shot with another.

 

What could hypnosis do for that ?

Hypnotist in a soothing voice

 

"Mouldy, when you mess up a chip you will say to yourself 'What did I expect, I'm a chopper?' and not get all upset any more"

 

Then the hypnotist says

 

"Mouldy, when I say 'Time for daddy's fun time' you will strip and turn around and touch your toes"

 

And that's where the trouble started!

Do I denote a hint of cynicism ?

Actually, no. It worked for my dad with the smoking too.

 

Just a little humour!

I have a diploma in medical hypnosis and have used it to help golfers with their game. I can certainly vouch for its effectiveness.

That's surprising. What's your thoughts on hypnosis for smoking. Hypnotists will tell you it is very effective. Unfortunately the research shows their is absolutely no more effectiveness than chance and hope. They never give you the long term results- just the 3 month snapshot. I work with a certified hypnotist who told me she won't 'treat' anyone for non smoking unless she interviews them first and works out whether that are serious on giving up. hahahahha
