WHAT IS A MENTAL COACH?
A mental coach is an expert in the field of sports performance psychology that can help you achieving your peak performance.
Psychological skills such as confidence, focus, determination and composure, can be learned and developed with a specific mental training program.
A mental coach is not a shrink but an advisor who will help you reach your personal best.
In practice or in competition, some days you might feel upset or discouraged, or you lack motivation. You know that that affects badly your performance, but you are stuck and not sure about what to do. Would you like to improve your mental toughness and get an edge over your opponents?
A mental coach will utilize their expertise to assist an athlete to push personal boundaries (such as self-doubts, training plateau, or frustration) and overcome unexpected challenges (such as defeat, fatigue, or injury) in order to achieve his/her goals.
