Mental Skills

Optimize your performance and develop lasting habits to compete in a more positive and productive way. Are you ready to get to work?

Athletics is a high-pressure environment in which the athlete has to manage many factors. External factors such as weather conditions, noise, hostile crowds and behavior and quality of play of opponents will influence performance. Add to that what usually goes on inside the athlete’s mind–feelings, hopes, fears, expectations--and it’s easy to see why many athletes cannot perform at their best during competition because the stress is overwhelming.


I work with each athlete according to their own unique needs. There is no “one size fits all” approach. I competed at a world-class level and have received further training from world-renowned institutions. I know what it feels like to be out there when the pressure rises. I know from my own playing career that it can be a very lonely and negative experience to compete. Because of this, I’m very effective in working with players of any sport or level. I’ve been in your shoes and can relate to what is going on in your mind and body. Together, we will work on many skills to transform you into a more confident and better competitor!
