Mental golf with Shirley

July 8, 2010

Well, maybe it’s time to note my golf progress. Haphazard, is all I can say!

While I have been going to my nice ladies group lessons most every Thursday morning and playing the 3 par afterwards that has not been enough. I need to get out on the 18 holes and get the practice under my belt.  The others are doing this, they have their handicap cards, they are playing 2 and 3 times a week. To put it simply they are progressing and I am not. In fact I am still hitting lots of stupid shots, over analysing my swing and rushing into it in my normal get on and do it fashion.  How silly is that? But, I havent been able to stop it, which is worse for me, a hypnotherapist.

Golf has not been my priority this year, however, I am quite competitive and don’t like to be left behind. To sort this out  I have teamed up with another hypnotherapist, Shirley, who is much the same as me. We are going to help each other with our mental golf game and are including rounds of golf with no mental pressure at all. And I am talking no pressure, no worries about who is behind, in front, watching, criticising, or even thinking about talking to us. A calm game of focused golf is what we have in mind!

For our first basic exercise was one to stimulate positive thinking with our fantastic tapping technique EFT.  We started it on Monday and today, Thursday, I played so much better.

‘Even though I am stilll rubbish after all this time, I am open to change’

‘I now choose to hit the ball well and enjoy my golf”

‘I can can hit the ball straight and accurate, straight and accurate is good’

If you are a tapper and a golfer then follow along.  If you are a golfer but haven’t learned tapping,  it is time you did.  (I do phone and skype sessions for this)

Martin Giblin of Travel Momentum improves his golf

April 29, 2010

Martin Giblin organises great  travel experiences for people wanting something special and bespoke.  A round the world trip, travel to a certain country with interesting and exciting things to do is exactly what I mean.  He also arranges corporate travel and events for companies wanting to reward employees, or do group bonding work.  He has many years of experience here and takes care of every detail making sure everyone enjoys themselves while away.  He is very organised and calm, with a lovely smile.  He just knows how to do his job well!

A few months ago Martin came to see me for some help with his golf.  He reports back here.

‘As a golfer, I am often plagued, during a game with a lack of confidence on certain shots.  Using Marilyns excellent techniques has helped me overcome these problems and to enjoy my golf even more. I am producing the best scores I have had in ages. As most golfers know the game is more in the mind than in the technique.’

Thank you, Martin.


New Years resolution – Golf improvement?

January 4, 2010


You want to play a better game of golf this year? …. I wonder what you need to do to improve?

If your technique needs looking at go for some lessons. But perhaps you want to work on the mental side of your game? Perhaps playing consistently to your handicap. Perhaps improving it? Well, why not. You can do it.

Of course, if it is winter where you are, maybe you are thinking you can’t do much? Wrong!

Golf mindset improvement sessions with me come with recordings. This means you can improve your golf all through the winter, as often as you want, relaxing back in your own home, rain, hail or shine!

The beauty is that I am available by phone as well, and even one session could really make a difference for you. Numerous people have done just that – had one session, and be so pleased with the results in their game, that that’s all they needed. Others have done my 6 session programme covering goals, hindrances, confidence, calmness, concentration and consistency. You should see their progress! (read down the blog further)

What a way to get an edge on the others by the next round and improve your handicap into the bargain!
