Golf star Tiger Woods is a staunch advocate of the power of hypnosis, and he has used it for more than keeping fit. He has talked about using hypnotherapy to become a better golfer, and his record speaks for itself. He first tried hypnosis in his teens and it has helped him to get rid of anxiety so that he can give his best possible performance on the course. In addition, he visualizes every move he makes on the golf course before ever hitting the ball.
Eva Mendes is also said to have benefitted from hypnosis sessions aiming to stop her from biting her nails. She has a history of endorsing hypnotherapy more broadly. In particular, the actress has confirmed that she has used hypnotherapy to combat and overcome a debilitating fear of spiders. This is another excellent example of how hypnosis can influence subconscious fears that hold us back.
