Take Control and Achieve Your Goals

As a competitive athlete I have always struggled with overthinking and sensitivity. Although able to compete at a very high level, I was often distracted by internal thoughts and emotions that I couldn’t quite control. Through my education and experience as a mental skills consultant I now know enthusiastically that athletes and coaches can learn to be confident, motivated, focused, emotionally balanced, and mentally prepared – allowing them to achieve any goal they set their mind to.

Do you have a dream goal?

It’s important to have goals when you’re trying to improve yourself. Common goals for individuals seeking mental skills training with a sports psychologist include:

  • To reach the next level of competition (i.e. college, academy teams, regional or national identification, professional)​
  • To achieve a certain statistic (i.e. scoring, break records, drop times, improve scores, increase wins, etc.)

Do you know what stands in your way?

  • Do you focus on your mistakes?
  • Do you perform better in practice than in competitions?
  • Do you get too nervous before a competition?
  • Has anyone ever told you that you need to be more confident or aggressive?
  • Are you recovering from an injury and feel like you are behind in training or afraid to get re-injured?


Overview of Mental Skills Training for Individuals

  • Meet your consultant for one 60-minute session where your athlete will learn about and begin the program.  At the completion of the session the consultant will provide an assessment and training recommendation so you and your athlete can better decide if this is a program you would like to pursue.
  • 60-minute sessions including original worksheets and discussions, scheduled to meet the athlete’s needs.
