    Wonder if anyone has had results from a sports hypnotist? Not just the DVDs but, actually going to one for a session(s)? Any success? Who did you go to? I'm having problem with a flinch.

    I went to one who works with olympic shooters. It did help to build my confidence, and i feel that it was well worth the money. People will think you're crazy when you tell them you're seeing a hypnotist but don't let it bother you. Don't so much think of it as hypnotism, its more like mental training. It will introduce a new thought pattern, giving you more confidence in competitive situations. As with other bad habits, i would imagine that it could help your flinch as well

    Sacrifice a chicken in the dark of a full moon; it's cheaper.

    Back in the 1970's there use to be Subliminal Trap shooting tapes one could buy. They sounded like ocean waves. I use to play them all night. I don't know if they helped my shooting, but they sure made me sleep great.

    I used to be a pretty decent shot, and then I let Shootlow hynotize me and I haven't shot good since.

    In retrospect, that might not have been the thing to do........lol

    I took the NRA shotgun coaches class, there is a section on mental training.. I have tried it but I cant focus.. my mind wanders too much.. according to the teacher, mental training was as important at actual live firing..

    Stay away from Dr Hill. He uses the reach around method.

    I went to a talk by a person that called himself a hypnotherapist. It was worthwhile but I did not follow up although he said he could help me. He did talk about what hypnosis was. He said what you see on stage isn't it but when you drove to work usually using the same route and you can't remember driving through an intersection or if the light was green or red, you are basically in a hypnotic state. When I am in the zone shooting and can't remember anything about the mount or time it took to call for the bird, nothing about the call to shot timing---its hypnotic?

    Some funny replies for sure, but seriously ( if possible? ), hypnotherapists are helpful. But like any other profession, someone had to be at the top of the class and someone had to be at the bottom. I used one many years ago for playing pool. I had excellent results. I was also trained in self hypnosis. But like any skill, use it or lose it. Whether it be trap, pool, golf, tennis, etc., it can work. It depends on your ability to concentrate and your ability in the sport. It cannot make you any better at the time than you already are. It still takes proper practice.
    Good luck finding someone. It does work.

    Just make sure your hypnotist is right-handed if you are right-handed; left-handed if you are left-handed and if your dominant eye is the same; also check to see if he/she uses a release trigger...etc. If he/she uses an autoloader for doubles, find another hypnotist. Regards, Ed
