Each one of us has the capacity for great athletic performance.
So what is it that’s stopping You from reaching Your true potential in Your sport?
The answer: Too much interference. All the stuff that’s in your head – the self-doubt, lack of confidence, fear of failure. You get it.
Welcome to Athletes Mental Trainer, I’m passionate about helping athletes, their families, and coaches enrich their lives through sport by learning life skills, achieving high levels of performance, and enjoying their sport participation.
As an athlete and client, you’ll push the boundaries of achievement and facilitate a pathway towards success, in sport, business, and life in general. Through the implementation of a highly effective sport psychology & mental game performance program, you’ll discover how to break through the barriers that inhibit peak performance, while developing an overall growth mindset for excellence and success.
I offer exclusive mental training programs tailored to meet every athlete’s needs and help them to remove the interference from their full potential. From 1-on-1 mental training programs for individual athletes to team, parent and organizational workshops, my holistic approach to delivering both sport psychology and sport science can be seen throughout my services that offer the best methods for improving performance.

2. Fear of Failure: Fear over bad outcomes or choking in critical moments in competition. Fear is future-based and, also, prevents you from focusing in the NOW or the things you need to do in the present in order to be successful.
3. Dwelling on Mistakes: Dwelling on errors is the number one distraction for athletes today. You cannot play in the present moment or stay in the zone if your mind is stuck on a missed opportunity or faulty performance. Once you begin to dwell on an error and beat yourself up, it is very hard to stop the cycle of negativity. Let go of the error (Regroup) (Reset) (Refocus) and think about the next point or play
