Leeds Rhinos’ Ash Handley strikes up unique deal with hypnotherapist

Nowadays, having a healthy rugby league player is paramount.

And, with mental health just as important as physical, it’s no surprise that players and clubs are thinking outside the box in a bid to get in the best psychological place possible.

That has included mental health coaches during the season – and especially just prior to big games – with mental resilience and strength valued – and rightly so – just as much as the physical aspect.

For one Leeds Rhinos star, that has included now striking up a unique deal with a hypnotherapist

Therapy With Rob, or TWR, is a hypnotherapist and mindset coach which, according to himself, has been set up in order to enable “athletes to achieve peak performance”

He posted on his Instagram:”BIG NEWS. Super pleased to share that I am now working with Leeds Rhinos winger Ash Handley🎉.

“This is a great move for TWR expanding into rugby and what better place to start than right here at home in Leeds👏🏼.

“Ash and I are not reinventing the wheel here, but rather looking to expand his knowledge so that he can truly start to get the most out of himself as an elite athlete 💯📈.

“Funnily enough, I first started working with rugby players when I created TWR, so these are familiar grounds and I’m excited to get some solid work underway.

“Looking forward to this journey Ash.”

Handley himself enjoyed a superb game last night for Leeds against Wakefield Trinity, registering a hat-trick in an act of defiance following his England snub earlier in the week.
