However, hypnosis has been most beneficial to me in my work with different athletes. Here hypnosis has proven an unequalled method for improving the mental condition and performance of individuals as well as entire teams and thus ensuring optimal results. I owe many thanks to my late mentor Egil Hau. He was the first person to give me the feeling that I could do it, and he taught me how to induce a trance-like state in another person.

He has thus had a great influence over my professional life. I also wish to thank everyone who has volunteered for hypnosis treatment over the years — because only through practice and training have I been able to perfect my skills. To begin with I will describe what hypnosis is. Hypnosis is a sleep-like condition, where the hypnotised subject is especially susceptible to influence.
The hypnotised subject seems automatically and uncritically to obey the instructions of the hypnotist, and he can hear, see, feel, smell and taste imaginary things. The sciences have so far failed to explain exactly what happens in the brain of the hypnotised subject, but tests have established that the brain activity during hypnosis is similar to the brain activity during sleep or in deep meditative states.
The methodology of hypnosis concentrates on reducing consciousness and thus opening the subconscious. It is the same thing that happens when we fall asleep. The difference between deep sleep and the state of hypnosis is that the person is unable to control his dreams, whereas the hypnotised subject is able to change his behaviour and worldview.

The conclusion must be that the hypnotised state of mind is located somewhere between sleep and waking state. Today we are able to measure the activity in the brain in different ways, which has revealed that the brain works at different frequencies, measured in Hz hertz. Today it is possible to measure our brain activity using EEG, but we are also able to scan the brain and determine in more detail the activity of different parts of the brain in different situations.
In trance it is possible to help the client introduce new positive images in his subconscious in order to process and replace negative images. Sports hypnosis is a form of hypnosis that focuses primarily on performance optimisation, but sports hypnosis can also with advantage be used for mental development and, not least, in connection with injuries, pain and physical rehabilitation. Sports hypnosis is particularly useful in connection with performance anxiety, including different anxiety symptoms, and mental and psychological conditions that prevent the athlete from realising his full potential.
