My work has evolved from specializing in the treatment of stress disorders – to working with talented athletes and performing artists who come to me because they aren’t happy. It is common that they practice well, but somehow they don’t perform in competition anywhere near their potential. A number of things get in the way, like:
Lack of Confidence,
Distractions get in the way,
Emotional ups and downs,
Losing their Composure,
Relationships that go sideways,
Coaches that don’t get them,
Injuries that hold them back,
Motivation and Self-Discipline are lacking,
There are a lot of ways that people waste their talent. When that happens – Athletes aren’t having fun. They get upset, lose their composure and focus, beat themselves up, or are so stressed out – they just can’t perform.
This is a horrible feeling, in a game situation and your performance is inconsistent. You worry about what’s gonna happen next, or worse, you are afraid you don’t have the tools to be successful and your coach and team are depending on you.
