Serious athletes train both their bodies and minds for peak performance. The overall goal of any mental game program is the same—improving your mind to help your body with its peak performance. The programs can be applied to any level of competition including junior, high school, and college or professional that is motivated to improve and open to change.

Great athletes are not necessarily born. They are a product of their environment. If you love sports and have passed your passion onto your child, he or she may have the dedication to maximizing his or her athletic potential. Just as you’ve worked with your child to polish physical skills, you’ll want to work with your child to refine your child’s mental game skills (i.e. maintaining composure after an error or setback) Working with a mental game coach can help you uncover the mental obstacles and create winning strategies to overcome them to maximize your child’s athletic talents.

Mental Game Coaching will help you to easily identify the attitudes or behaviors that are prohibiting peak performance. I will assist you to help develop creative solutions to overcome mental obstacles that are keeping your athletes from performing up to their potential. This includes discovering the triggers that can help your athletes enter the zone faster and stay there longer.
Mental coaching is helpful to teams who simply want to improve overall performance. Enhancing confidence, improving focus, increasing practice efficiency, and building team cohesion is the methods used to enhance the team’s performance. I can also assist slumping teams to identify why performance is below potential and how implementing mental game strategies can positively impact performance.
