Dear Dr Kraft
I need to speak to you about my performance anxiety. I am a trombone player and I play regularly at festivals and concerts throughout the year. The work that I do pays the bills, but it is the solo work that I enjoy the most and it also pays well. But when I get to the venue I get so anxious that I can’t perform well. Now, it has got worse. My performance anxiety affects me the day before, and start developing panic symptoms a whole day before the event. I get moody. My heart begins to race, the palms for my hands get sweaty (I understand that this is called hyperhidrosis__I have looked on Google), and I am out of control. Apart from when I am asleep, which incidentally take a long time, these feelings build up and get worse and worse. When I arrive at the concert venue, I become so stressed that I begin to shake. I can’t hold a pen let alone a trombone. My sister said that I should get help, and see someone who specializes in performance anxiety hypnotherapy, and someone who does it in London. I live in West London and I need to see somebody in London because of my work.
I perform all over the place, but most of the rehearsals are in central London. Can you see me soon? I have a really important gig in Basingstoke and I have been learning this piece of music for several months now. It is really important. I also understand that performance anxiety hypnotherapy is long lasting and continues to grow on its own. Is that correct?
I can certainly see you. Please give me a ring on 0207 467 8564. Hypnotherapy, combined with counselling and/or psychotherapy, are together very powerful in treatment and the effects are long lasting. I tend to give suggestions such as, ‘the process of becoming more and more confident…..grows inside of you stronger and stronger as time passes’ . This is very useful during the hypnotherapy.
I look forward to hearing from you.

I need some help with sport. I am a keen netball player and I have been playing for years. I heard that hypnotherapy can enhance performance and I need some help in this area. I have been struggling recently on the pitch. I doubt myself and hesitate and this affects what I do. When I am really engaged I play really well, but, for most of the time, I worry that the goal is too far away and my shot will not be good. I heard that hypnosis can help. I want to reach my full potential. Can you help me because I love playing so much and I feel that I am letting my friends down. Last year I missed a really important shot and we lost the game, and my problem got worse after this event. K
Hypnotherapy can be used effectively to help people with sport–specifically performance anxiety. It can help you to concentrate and also to reach your full potential in the game. It can enhance your skills in all aspects of the game. If you would like to book a session, please do not hesitate to phone 0207 467 8564.
