WHAT WOULD YOU FEEL, HEAR AND SEE

IF YOU WERE A CHAMPION?

ACHIEVE CONSISTENT HIGH PERFORMANCE LEVELS IN SPORTS BY LEARNING MENTAL SKILLS

TAKE THE ATHLETES MINDSET ASSESSMENT

Have you ever known an athlete who was amazingly talented in practice but is never capable of showing that level of performance in competition? The point is, it’s not enough having physical skills if you can’t perform and demonstrate your potential in the game.

As sports mental preparation coach, I use mental training to help athletes of all ages and abilities benefit from the principles of sports psychology.

ARE YOU

Sports mental performance

An athlete who would like to either learn new skills or build on their existing mental skills so you can get to the next performance level.

An athlete that is underperforming and even if you are ready physically there are some mental barriers that you would like to get rid of.

A parent of a young athlete who needs to learn the necessary mental skills so he can continue to progress and prepare future competitions.

… AND HAVE YOU BEEN

  • Dwelling on mistakes leading you to be stuck in a negative cycle of focusing on what you did wrong and creating more frustration and making more mistakes.
  • Focusing too much on winning which negatively affect your performance as it puts your focus on the future instead of the process and practice.
  • Worrying too much about what your coach, teammates or spectators are thinking of you making you have unwanted emotions such as anxiety or sadness.
  • Putting a lot of pressure on yourself to perform by creating unrealistic expectations that are setting you up for failure before you even start creating success.
  • Worrying about making mistakes that could happen rather than focusing on the positives you could achieve which may hold you back and forget your game plan.
  • Doubting your skills and worrying about failing in future situations. By being unsure of how you are going to play it is more likely that you will under-perform.
  • Comparing yourself to others by focusing on what the opponent is doing right and what you are doing wrong will decrease your confidence and is a distraction.
  • Overthinking before you compete and second-guessing your game plan can make you feel unprepared and nervous. You then start competing without the confidence you need for peak performance.
  • Bringing life problems into the competition making it hard to separate regular life from sports life and therefore not focusing on the field and more likely harming your performance.
  • Getting distracted by the importance of the competition feeling like you have to do something different to what you usually do will be causing you extra nerves.
