Mental Toughness Academy

Mental Toughness Academy (MTA)


I use proven sports psychology theories to help athletes achieve peak performance, through the teaching of mind-skills and strategies.

It’s the teaching of success psychology (brain training) that will unleash the ability for athletes to reach their full potential. As a bonus, the skills learned are completely transferable to other areas of life. 

World-class coaches of all disciplines agree that for an athlete to take their performance to another level, it comes down to how mentally strong and prepared they are. They need to make the right choices at the right time. An athlete can train all they want technically & physically, but if they can’t execute in a game when the pressure is on, then every else does not matter. 

The Mental Toughness Academy helps athletes program and reprogram where choices are coming from, in other words, it builds ‘success thinking patterns’, therefore, good, confident choices become a habit and are made at crucial times. It unlocks the power of the mind!

My unique and proven program has helped hundreds of athletes navigate through high-pressure situations to gain an edge over opponents. I’ve worked with those just starting out their athletic careers to others that have represented their country at World Championships and Olympic games.  

The focus is to change the mindset of the athlete which will enable them to get the most out of their hard work and dedication and perform at their best consistently. This program is set up to support athletes for a lifetime of peak performance.

Some of the benefits of my Mental Tough Academy coaching includes:
