Attention Moms and Dads!
Got a kid with physical talent? How well do they perform under pressure? How are their grades? Thinking of college? Average cost of a state college is $22,000 a year. A private college can cost $55,000 and up. I hate to bring it up but there are a half million other kids just as physically gifted looking for a SCHOLARSHIP. Coaches look for the ability to play under pressure. If your athlete is blessed with physical ability, they can play that card for a while. But as they rise through each new level of competition the need for mental toughness increases. You already know that! Don't wait to get them help developing their mental game! Parental Note: I always work with student-athletes with a parent present.
Coaches and Instructors:
Game time performance is 90% mental
You better be an expert in all the nuances' that control mental performance. Are you? The best game plan, the best conditioning regiment and ten thousand repetitions mean nothing if your athletes don't know where their Peak Performance Zone is at. Recognizing where that mental ZONE is at, is the only way to be there when it counts. Do you teach them how to find their ZONE and how to stay there, under pressure? NO? If you don't, the most important part of game time performance will always be a crap shoot. I teach athletes how to recognize and practice being in their Peak Performance Zone. I could teach you too!

Can you help a PRO?
Sure, unless you're a real dope, my program can benefit any athlete. If you watch professional sports, you know there are more head cases
out there than the
local barbershop. Pros are just like the amateur athlete, they
their Mental Game is there when they need
it. But, how many times have you seen a 10 million dollar baby lose
their mental edge under pressure?
If you are a professional athlete, chances are you make more money
cardiologist and my preacher, combined. It's not a bad thing, but
you have to pay accordingly for my services. Add a "0"
to my single
session rate for starters, call it a seat tax, guaranteed money or a sign-up bonus. An
individual office session plus a custom CD is $2500.
You'll get the Deluxe Treatment with an hour and a half session. I'll
explain sports psychology and how it relates to you, in
plain language. I'll answer every question you ever had about your sports
brain and how to control it. I'll take you step by step
through the relaxation process several times and make you a custom CD. (Non-professionals
can have the Deluxe Session for $350.)
My help is always in confidence. Our secret.
Most of my teams and athletes don't want the world to know
how they improved their performance. Some don't want their competition to know how they improved.
Some athletes are embarrassed to ask for help. But
most discover that real mental training and sports psychology aren't taught
by their coaches! Sad to say the reality in 2016 is most coaches
don't know much about Sports Psychology and nothing at all about the
oldest tool used to help athletic performance, HYPNOSIS. If you want to
master your mental game, you have to learn it on your
own. The good news is the mental training I teach you is practiced
the field, at home and nobody can tell you are doing anything different,
except the improvement in your game performance, under pressure. Your secret
is safe with me.

What sports do you work with?
P.S. Palmer, Mental Skills Coach,1987
EVERY SPORT. The mental side of competition and pressure performance is the same for every sport and any type of competitor can choke under pressure. The most obvious sports I work with are baseball, football, soccer, basketball, golf, hockey any team sport plus injury rehab.
Did you say hypnosis?
Yes, I did. Pretty scary stuff! Hypnosis has been around for a few hundred years, a recognized therapeutic tool since the 1950's and yet most people have no clue what it actually is. I'll answer all your hypnosis questions on my "Hypnosis" page but for now lets call the process Guided Relaxation, Mental Imagery, Visualization or even Meditation if it makes you feel better. When you begin to understand what these relaxation techniques can do for you, you won't care what they're called.
What will you teach me?
I'll teach you two essential things. First, how to
recognize your Peak Performance Zone. If
you don't know where or what your zone is you'll never be able to repeat
it, much less be able to slip into it when it counts.
Second, once you know where your zone is you need to practice being there. The only way to do that
is through Mental Rehearsal. Mental
rehearsal is a skill unto itself
and it's not done on the field, in the locker room or in the classroom.
The good news is mental rehearsal can be short and sweet if you know all
the secrets that make it work. I
make you a Custom CD to guide you through the mental rehearsal process.
It doesn't get any easier than that!!!
