I have always been fascinated by human behaviors, and what motivates us. As an experienced athlete, a former special forces soldier, and an adventurous person, I was drawn to learn more about the human dynamics that affect performance. For over ten years, I have been practicing and teaching sports psychology.
I'm a Certified Mental Performance Consultant through the Association for Applied Sport Psychology (AASP). I implement a range of methods, including emotional control strategies, performance profiling, visualization, performance development, bio-feedback training, attention control training, routine development, goal setting, assessments, and more.
I teach my clients to improve their mental strength and gain a quiet mindset to maximize their potential, with many of them reporting a noticeable improvement in their performance, mental ability, and well-being.
I hope to have the opportunity to work with you.
