The Yips: Who Suffers From Them And What Can Be Done?

This week, I counseled four different kinds of athletes suffering from the yips.

They included a golfer who was struggling with short putts.

A baseball player who could not make short throws to first base.

A tennis player who was very uncomfortable with his serve.

And a basketball player who was uncomfortable a the foul line.

They all report anxiety, tense feelings in their bodies and lack of confidence.

I use a number of techniques to help these athletes.  Frequently, hypnosis and some physical changes are part of the regime.  In addition, we try to minimize perfectionism and reactivate their inner athletes.

If you or someone you know is struggling with the yips, give me a call at 201 647-9191 or reach out to me at
