A Champion need Championship training:

Mental toughness shows up in various ways and is most obvious in pressure situations  That is just one reason why, Sports Development Coaches can be a beneficial adjunct to both athletic coaches and sports team.  


  • Many sport coaches believe that mental toughness is something that can be obtained without mental strength training.
  • They are so busy with physical training, they don’t have the time or the training to focus on mental aspect of the game.
  • Sports is 90% mental.  Athlete’s nerves are driven by their psychological state.


Developing a Championship Worthy Mind Now!

To play at peak level, you must have clarity in what you want to accomplish.  Top level athletes rid excuses; they are accountable for their thoughts.  Great favorites like Tim Duncan, Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan know mental toughness.  They know that your mind influences your athletic performance as much as your physical skill does.



Mental Toughness Quote: Competitive toughness is an acquired skill, not an inherited gift…. Chris Evert

  • Mental strength  – the most important attributes an athlete can own. 
  • .Consistent habits, appropriate behaviors and healthy self-belief must be present to perform at your peak level.

 Be clear about what you want to accomplish as goals.  Hypnosis is valuable in helping an athlete sustain focus and resiliency on demand.  Motivation and behavior is affected by your subconscious beliefs.  Peak performers know how to use adversity to drive their motivation.  Hypnosis for mental strength training teaches individuals how to eliminate distracting thoughts.


Mental Training for The BIG Success:

Confidence, focused direction and self-belief are essential elements that make up a bold fearless competitor.  Leading competitors use Mental Strength Training habitually.  They know, they MUST embed these vital elements subconsciously, for their victory to occur!  An athlete will never play beyond their subconscious view of self and capabilities.

Top athletes own dedication and determination.  They help them to persevere, regardless of how tough the situation appears to be.  Mental training helps them build self-trust and a ‘sustaining composure’ in the difficult times.  Hypnosis for Peak Performance Attainment helps athletes sustain “their best” – regardless of what their emotions feel like.

 Hypnosis can help you alter self-doubt and other defeating thoughts.  Our dominating beliefs drive us either towards success or, away from it!  What are your dominating beliefs about you as an athletic competitior?

 It’s hard to imagine the game of basketball without Michael Jordan.  A coach once told him he was not cut out for the pros. Probably what saved Michael from getting caught in a ‘mental trap’ and quit, was his determination to conquer his dreams, his dedication and, his self-belief and confidence.

Self-limiting behaviors start at a very young age:   Because younger athletes want to play at their best, they unfortunately and mistakenly, read into other’s silent and expressed comments.  They watch facial gestures, when others discuss their abilities.  Parents, long before athletes desired to be ‘their best’ – problems currently interrupting their level of performance actually began unknowingly, in early years of sports.
