In relation to this, many sports men and woman are beginning to use motivational hypnotherapy to better enhance their sporting performance. 

Former British super-middle weight boxing champion; Glenn Catley stumbled across motivational hypnotherapy following his spout of working alongside Steve Collins the Boxer, who Catley noticed was 'different and more focused' during training sessions. Catley later discovered his sport mate had been engaging in pre-training hypnotherapy sessions and this intrigued Catley somewhat.

Catley has made no secret that he too then went onto to actively engage in motivational hypnotherapy throughout his boxing career, which resulted in his great success.

Catley was so taken by the power of motivational hypnotherapy that he later went onto to undertake a two-year training programme in psychology and intends to see out his working life as a hypnotherapist. Catley is reported as being keen to help sports people improve their performance using the technique.
