I can help you get it!
Professional athletes have long relied on visualisation techniques to set records, win tournaments, and compete at their peak. In as little as one session, COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) and Hypnotherapy can empower your mind to unlock unprecedented sporting success.
I work closely with professionals and amateurs alike, helping them master the power of their thoughts in shaping their reality. I help them transform their thoughts to align perfectly with the performance and results they dream of achieving. I don't just focus on improving my clients' emotional health, but also aspects of their physical health. Often, emotional pain manifests physically, so I work on optimising thought patterns, which in turn positively affects physical symptoms.
COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) and Hypnotherapy employ powerful techniques under hypnosis to help athletes visualise their muscles working optimally, improve hand-eye coordination, enhance speed and agility, improve mental and emotional regulation, increase concentration and focus, boost self-confidence and resilience, increase stamina, reduce stress and anxiety, achieve mindfulness and relaxation, and instil an unbreakable winning mindset. My integrative therapies can improve both individual and team performance across all sports, in training, and in competition, while also improving overall quality of life. They can also aid in injury reduction and expedite recovery.
For team sports, COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) and Hypnotherapy can help align the entire team's thought processes and performance. This enhances communication, collaboration, and instils a shared winning attitude.
Constant negative thinking can not only demotivate you but also give rise to a more powerful 'inner critic' that actively holds you back. Despite the mind's natural resistance to change, it has an amazing ability to learn through repetition. Feed it the same message enough times, and it will happily adjust its behaviour to support the new directive. I leverage the mind’s predictability during my Rapid Transformational Therapy™ (RTT™) and Hypnotherapy sessions when treating clients for sports performance issues.
Every thought you think, every word you say to yourself, and every mental image you create serves as a blueprint for your mind and body to make your reality. And since your mind responds to the narratives you feed it, it will actively defend those narratives and work towards making them your reality. Understanding this can help you realise that your reality isn't external; it's a construct of the mind. Once my athletes realise their mind is working for them and not to them, they are able to take control of their inner thoughts and feelings and make the changes necessary to perform beyond anything they had thought possible.
Fast forward to today, and our mind operates in much the same way, responding to our inner thoughts as if we were still living in harsher, more perilous times. Therefore, if we want our mental and emotional health to match our safer, more comfortable circumstances, we must learn to tell ourselves a different story.
Even professional athletes can fall into the trap of negative self-talk. In doing so, they may create problematic beliefs and damaging behaviour that results in performance issues, illness, or injury. The resultant emotional pain often manifests physically, a particularly troublesome issue for those whose careers depend on their physical performance.
Fortunately, the solution is straightforward. We simply need to train ourselves to foster more positive, supportive thoughts. In doing so, we can guide our minds towards outcomes more in line with our true potential and our goals in life.
This tendency for the familiar can, and often does, lead to destructive habits. For instance, picture someone trapped in a toxic relationship. The familiarity of that toxicity can become a comfort zone, resulting in a continuous cycle of emotional and physical abuse, and more harmful relationships. People in this situation will create a false narrative and tell themselves that it’s just how relationships work for them. This repeating pattern can last indefinitely, because people naturally prefer what they know, even if it's detrimental to them.
So, how do we rewrite our stories? How do we make affirmations like 'I'm a winner,' 'I'm worthy,' and 'success is available to me' become our default mindset?
I get my clients to start each morning with positive affirmations, telling themselves the things they want to hear most, such as 'I'm a winner,' I possess a unique skill,' 'I have something valuable to offer the world.' Whatever words move them towards better thoughts and feelings, I get them to say it. I remind them that their mind is constantly awaiting their instructions and to feed it with words that build them up rather than tear them down. Peoples self-dialogue and the mental images (pictures) they create in their mind have physiological impacts, which over time can either empower them or hold them back. The difference is what they tell themselves.
Nothing bolsters self-esteem more than praise, particularly self-praise. Repeated self-praise conditions your mind to accept this positive narrative as truth. Conversely, habitual self-criticism also gets embedded in your psyche as truth, forming a self-deprecating blueprint for your life.
Thinking positive thoughts may sound easy, but here’s the thing, you absolutely must be consistent. If you’re going to tell yourself a better story and you want it to stick, you have got to tell yourself that story every day, under every circumstance, always and forever - the mind learns through repetition, and it is always listening.
Knowing that your wellbeing depends on the story you tell yourself, how do you cope during times of real adversity? Everyone encounters adversities and will inevitably assign meaning to those events. Negative self-blame and self-criticism can be harmful, but you have the power to reverse this. Irrespective of the circumstances, I help my clients change their story from 'I'm worthless' to 'I'm worthy' and witness the transformative effect that has on their lives.
That feeling of not being enough is an incredibly common issue. In fact, without any consultation, I can confidently tell my clients that there are only three things that can be wrong with them. The first is, I’m not enough. The second is, I’m different so I can’t connect. And the third is, I really want something, like a successful sporting career, but it isn’t available to me. A possible fourth belief is, even if there is help available to me, I don’t deserve it.
Ultimately what this feeling of not being enough comes down to is a lack of self-belief and the fear of failure, judgement, and rejection. From birth, we are hard-wired to find connection and avoid rejection. It’s the fear of rejection that is crippling and can cause many of the issues that I treat in my clinic. This fear of failure, rejection and judgement is further polarised for professional athletes who are more likely to be in the public eye. I teach my clients that the only person who could truly reject them is themselves, and that other people can only reject them if they choose to let the feeling in. ‘I am enough’ is a phrase I ask my clients to tell themselves repeatedly, because when they know they are enough and they truly believe it, everything becomes available to them.
My therapies are designed to radically address the issues that are impacting your life. This includes your physical performance, resilience, confidence, self-esteem, motivation, purpose and meaning, career, creating wealth and abundance, and achieving the life you want. I have developed a powerful programme of Psychotherapy, Hypnotherapy and Skills support to help people with performance issues, often because they lack self-belief and other emotional strategies that are key to their success. COACHD Rapid Transformational Therapy™(RTT™) and Hypnotherapy work with the subconscious mind, helping my clients reset their negative thoughts and beliefs to positive, empowering new ones that support their well-being, and professional development.
By helping my clients fix the issues that lead to poor or uncharacteristic performance, they are empowered to become the person they most want to be. Additional skills support is available to COACHD clients through my Coached Method Coaching™ service which helps them develop the practical skills needed to excel in all aspects of their sporting career and an unstoppable future!

I use this powerful therapy to help people get to the root cause of their emotional, physical, or cognitive issues. When I treat a client for sports performance issues, I believe it is crucial to help them change their way of thinking, and any unhelpful beliefs and patterns of behaviour. Concentrating on the causes rather than the symptoms vastly increases the chance of success and lasting change.
