In this week’s sports psychology podcast, Dr. Cohn helps an football player who has a mental block when trying to kick PATs. Sports psychology expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn helps athletes perform without fear and tension in competition. Dr. Cohn answers the following mental game question:

“I play football for my high school. I’m a kick and punter. In practice I can hit everything. I have college offers from schools all across the nation. But I have some kind of a mental block when trying to kick PATs. 50 yard field goals I don’t miss. For some reason, I seem to be almost scared of them. I dread going out too kick them.”

In this Podcast, Dr. Cohn gives the top mental game strategies to trust in your practice and perform your best. Athletes tend to tighten up and underperform when they try to avoid making mistakes. Listen to this month’s sports psychology podcast to perform with confidence and simplify your performance.

The Fearless Athlete

For the last two decades, I’ve been working with athletes and helping them optimize their physical ability by teaching them the secrets of top performing athletes. Now, you too can learn how to regain that child-like fearless attitude.

Mental toughness is what separates the winner from the loser in any competition. Champion athletes train hard in practice, perform without fear in competition, and trust their skills in crunch-time.

The Fearless Athlete program is ideal for any athlete that wants to overcome fear of failure and uncover inhibiting perfectionistic traits; or for any coach or parent who wants to teach athletes to perform with trust and freedom in competition.
