44 Mind-Body Methods To Help You Become More Successful In Your Sport



Which sports psychology approaches have you tried so far? What mental approaches has your coach used? It is important that you experience more than one sports psychology training method because one method does not fit all people and all situations.

I suggest you avoid the single-approach practitioners. There are numerous sports psychology consultants who only use one approach. If this method is appropriate for your needs and situation, and it works, fine. But if not, you need a sports psychology coach who is knowledgeable about and effective with approaches and techniques that are a good fit for you.

I have been trained in numerous sports psychology approaches, and continue to expand my base of techniques. I train and certify mental game practitioners world-wide, as founder and president of the International Mental Game Coaching Association. To do this, I need to be very well-versed in the latest advances in sports psychology. Every year I create and adapt many new sports psychology approaches and techniques to help my clients.

Here is an overview of how I can work with you in your quest for mental excellence.
