Peak Performance Expert and Coach
As a high performing young athlete, I remember struggling with pressure and obstacles that stood in my way of reaching my dream. It was so much harder than I thought it would be and although on the outside everything appeared fine on the inside I continually battled with anxiety, self-doubt, and frustration.
When I finally learned about the power of the brain in relation to performance I couldn’t believe no one ever taught me this both as a young athlete and then as a professional. I’m convinced I would have gone farther in my career if this was the case.
When I began coaching I made it a priority to, not only prepare my athletes physically, technically and tactically but to emphasize the psychology of performance – that is, to train their brain! The results were amazing. This took me to the path of becoming a ‘Mental Game Coach’ and now more than 20 years later it’s more applicable than ever. It’s the competitive edge athletes of all ages and levels need to succeed.
