One of the toughest things for the parents of gymnasts (and often cheerleaders, as well) is to watch their child suddenly experiencing ongoing crippling fear about performing reverse or backwards tumbling movements such as back handsprings, backtucks, etc - on the floor or beam.These may even be movements the child may have been doing fairly comfortably in the sport for some time.
Even more difficult for the parents is the fact that they feel almost totally unable to truly help their child with this issue, in any shape or form - as encouragement, motivational pep-talks and emotional support sadly do not help much with this issue (and nor does increasing levels of practice in the gym).
This is because the fear causing these issues is like a computer 'program' which lies at the subconscious (software) level of the mind - and this means it simply does not respond to motivational methods...
Anxiety is one of the most common problems for gymnasts (and cheerleaders, actually) around the world - and often involves routines they may have performed easily for years.The reason why this issue does not respond to pep-talks, motivation or encouragement is because it lies deep in our inner mental 'programming', the subconscious.
This means the fear becomes an automatic emotional reaction every time they encounter the elements that trigger the reaction.
However, once the mental training recording releases the mind from the grip of fear caused by the negative beliefs, and the gymnast's confidence, and love for the sport, begins to return - and so do their results...
Sometimes parents, gymnasts or cheerleaders do not have a lot of time left, to overcome the fear and make things happen, and this is where we move things to the next level - and I create many of these every week (for the past 15 years).
This means creating a personalized hypnosis recording, to specifically target and focus on their own personal routines, elements & areas that are uniquely important to them (which the parent / gymnast also edits and personalizes several times - during the initial script-writing phase).
No matter whether it involves backhandsprings, backtucks, overcoming falls or injury, confidence issues, backwalkovers on the high beam, backtucks off the high bar, handstands on the beam, vaulting, suddenly feeling the need for a spot, or tumbling issues with cheerleaders (which are also highly common).
The most powerful aspect about these personalized recordings is that you are also a part of the creation process. You oversee the editing of the various (emailed) drafts of the script as it develops, to ensure it focuses on every aspect of your gymnastic issues.
(Cheerleaders version also now available)
Regular use of this mp3 download at home helps the gymnast (or cheerleader) overcome their deepest fears, phobias and anxieties about reverse tumbling, especially in the areas such as back handsprings, back tucks etc - which have created so many issues for so many people around the world.
Now including a new Bedtime version, to allow the gymnast to drift to sleep right afterwards - the download can be used on most devices or even burned to CD (and also available for purchase in CD format, as well), and has for many years helped frustrated and distraught gymnasts (and their tired parents!) overcome these long-term issues - as well as letting go of all the accompanying feelings of helplessness that go with them.

"We tried everything for my daughter's gym fears, from visits to hypnotherapists, counsellors, psychologists and other therapies, but her fears were not going away. But being able to continually use your recording until the issue completely went away, this made all the difference".

"My daughter began getting afraid of doing back handsprings and back flyaways, and eventually completely stopped all back tumbling. All the reassurance in the world made no difference and she was going to give up because she was not enjoying it anymore. I didn't even know these recordings existed, but they were our last hope. She especially loved going to sleep to the subliminal, and has since turned it all around and the problem has disappeared. All I can say is thank you, thank you, thank you".
