Initial Consultation:

During our initial consultation, Marcus disclosed his current mental state and beliefs about his abilities. Marcus was open to the idea of the techniques used and was eager to learn how it could help him perform better on the field.


Techniques Used:

Brain Gym –

I used brain gym to help create rapport by mirroring Marcus’s movements during the workout, while also helping him set a specific goal


Focus Awareness Technique -

I relaxed Marcus down and focused his mind


The Power of Suggestion -

I used the power of suggestion to help Marcus imagine himself reaching his football goals. This technique is used to create a positive mental image of the desired outcome, which in turn helps to build confidence and belief in one's abilities.


The power of suggestion is where the phrase "I put a spell on you" comes from. The word "spell" actually comes from the Old English word "spellian," which means to talk or speak


This highlights the fact that words are incredibly powerful and can have a significant impact on our thoughts, feelings, and actions


Just as a magician can use spells to influence their audience, sports performers and athletes can use the power of suggestion to enhance their performance. By choosing their words carefully and using positive language, they can create a mindset that empowers them to achieve their goals and perform at their best


“Words and magic were in the beginning one and the same thing, and even today words retain much of their magical power.”

― Sigmund Freud, Introductory Lectures on Psychoanalysis


Metaphors For Confidence And Motivation -

Metaphors are powerful indirect suggestions because they engage the listener's imagination and tap into their subconscious mind, making them more receptive to new ideas or perspective


Reframing -

I helped Marcus reframe his limiting beliefs about his abilities and his self-doubt. For example, he believed that his self-doubt was a sign of weakness and that it was holding him back. I helped him see that his self-doubt was a natural response to the pressure of the game and that it was something that he could use to his advantage if he learned how to manage it effectively.


EFT Tapping for Stress -

I introduced Marcus to the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), a form of acupressure that involves tapping on specific points on the body while focusing on negative emotions or beliefs. I guided Marcus through a tapping sequence to help him reduce his stress and anxiety and to release any negative emotions or beliefs that were holding him back.


Triggers -

I created an anchor by asking Marcus to remember a time when he felt particularly confident and focused during a game. I asked him to visualize that moment and associate those positive feelings with a physical gesture (e.g., tapping his chest). I then used this anchor to help him access those positive feelings whenever he needed them.


Visualization -

I worked with Marcus to create a vivid image of himself performing at his best on the field. We focused on the sensations and emotions he would experience when he was at his peak performance level and used this image to motivate him to train and compete with more confidence and focus.



Over the course of several sessions, Marcus began to feel more confident and focused on the field. He reported feeling less self-doubt and more in control during games and was able to maintain his focus even when he was under pressure. His coaches and teammates also noticed an improvement in his performance and attributed it to the inner mind training he had received.


Marcus continued to use the techniques we had worked on together to maintain his mental focus and confidence. By helping him manage his self-doubt and reframe his limiting beliefs, I was able to help Marcus perform at his best and achieve his goals on the field.
