What Skills Are Learned in Mental Training?

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?

The Confident Athlete

The Confident Athlete Audio

“The Confident Athlete” consists of 2 audio programs that include 14 days of confidence fueling exercises and a simple to follow workbook that guides you through the 14 days, helps you apply the strategies, and customizes the exercises to your personal needs.

Let me help you put a stop to the confidence leak. You can learn to have greater levels of confidence in competition than you do in practice by identifying the specific ways you undermine your own confidence and how to convert your practice confidence into COMPETITIVE CONFIDENCE.

“The Confident Athlete” is a ground-breaking system to teach you how to think like a champion and have ultimate self-confidence every time you step on the playing field, court, track, or course. The confident athletes was developed for any athlete – junior to professional –that wants to gain confidence. However, coaches and sports parents can learn how to teach others to perform with ultimate confidence. Use my program if you want to bust a slump or just wanting higher or more consistent levels of self-confidence.
