How Do You Help Athletes in Mental Coaching?
In this week’s sports psychology podcast, mental game of sports expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn, answers mental game questions in Sessions With Doc.
I’m continuing my series on: What is mental coaching? How does mental coaching work? And, what do you do as a mental coach?
Another question that I receive from listeners is:
“What are the things that you do as a mental coach? What are the things that you work on when you’re working with athletes?”
COHN: It is a good question and one I receive often from people that will call in requesting more information about the mental coaching or write in via our website at peaksports.com and they want more information about: What do you do in your sessions? How do you help athletes?
COHN: It may not be what you think because I am not a therapist, i am not a psychotherapist, I am not a psychologist… I’m a coach and simply a mental coach.
COHN: So, what that means is I work on the mental preparation piece and helping athletes take their practice game to competition successfully.
COHN:where my work really comes in is when athletes are under performing in competition. They are having problems taking their practice game to the actual game and they struggle with fear of failure, with doubt, lack of confidence, lack of trust in their skills getting highly upset or frustrated…
COHN: So, what is is that I do? What are the mental skills that I actually teach athletes?

What are our mental coaching students saying?
“WOW!!! What a week I had. I was able to perform with a confidence that allowed my style to shine through–no more entering the arena with that “deer in the headlights” look or feeling. I stopped evaluating myself while I was performing, and I actually left the arena after my patterns feeling like I had experienced a lot of fun. Thank you so much.”
~Julia Dreyer, National Champion Equestrian
“After your session, Mason had a game. He had the best game so far! He hustled, shot, no goals but two assists but he was cool with it because his focus was on shooting and not scoring (finally), defended well with his hands – finally put it all together. It was fun to watch and you could tell he felt really good about it.”
~Kelly, Lacrosse mom
“Peaksports.com website is so exciting. I researched them all and without a doubt your mental training site is the best! The vast amount of programs you provide helps athletes and coaches achieve higher levels of excellence in sports.”
~Doug Bolander, Hockey Coach
“Michelle had the best weekend of soccer she has ever played. I’m not just saying this because you have been working with her (I promise!). She was relaxed, did not get frustrated with herself or teammates, never once ‘shut down’ and actually smiled a couple of times. Numerous parents noticed a difference in her composure and attitude. A college coach sent an email last night expressing interest–commenting on her level of play during the weekend. Thanks again for EVERYTHING…Michelle is in a very good place right now!”
~Diana, Michelle’s Mother
“Thanks for all your help Dr. Cohn. You can rest assured that all our work came in very handy when I successfully qualified for the European Tour. I’m very happy and extremely thankful to you for helping me achieve this massive goal of qualifying for the European Tour! Thanks a lot again.”
