Meditation for Athletes
As a former professional athlete and having trained tennis players from beginner to professional level, I understand the mental battles and struggles sports people and performers face. I recognise the agonising frustration when an athlete/performer knows they are not reaching their full potential because their mental game is letting them down.
For an athlete to compete "in the zone" or be in their "flow state" is when they are in an optimum state of conciousness, where they feel their best and perform their best. There are many factors that can interfere with ones flow state and unless these factors are addressed the blissful feeling of competing in the zone is one that is almost impossible to attain.
MENTAL STRUGGLES THAT CAN AFFECT AN ATHLETE/PERFOMER'S ABILITY TO COMPETE AT THEIR BEST.
nerves and anxiety
poor focus and concentration
being unable to control temper/anger
being unable to compete with full awareness
Overcoming these struggles can help unlock an athlete/performer's true potential and can give them thorough enjoyment competing in their sport.
If your mental game needs improving or if you’re struggling with any or all of the above then you might be interested in the services and products I offer.
Please see below details on my online packages, workshops, and private one on one sessions.
Do you feel like you need help with your mental game when you compete? Do you suffer from nerves, low confidence, anger issues, or poor concentration? Or all of the above? The BE PRESENT - COMPETE package may just be what you need.
BE PRESENT - COMPETE is an audio meditation package specifically designed for athletes and performers to help them train their mind through meditation so as to find their "flow state" more consistently whilst competing.
For just €12 per month you can use the meditations in this package to help you develop a consistent meditation practice that will help you become more self aware and more mindful when you compete, leading to more enjoyment of your sport and no doubt, better results.

One to One Sessions
I offer one on one sessions to help tennis players and athletes with their mental game. These sessions take place in person or through zoom. There will be an intro call before the first session to discuss what the athlete needs work on.
We figure out which areas need the most attention and we set goals. Then depending on what needs work will depend on the meditations that will be introduced. We will practice one or two meditations during the session. And the client will be given a recording of the meditation so they can work on a daily practice until the next session.
For Under 18s the session needs to be arranged by their parent/guardian. A consent form will need to be completed.

Meditation for Athletes
YOGA & MEDITATION WORKSHOPS
The blissful joy of competing with a clear, calm and focused mind is something I wish for all my sporting clients.
Since retiring from professional sport I have trained children and adults in tennis from beginner to professional level. I captained the Irish Ladies Fed Cup Tennis Team for 6 years until I stepped down in 2018.
I work with many athletes including tennis players, footballers, runners and dancers. I recognise the mental struggles that sports people and performers face. These struggles are preventing them from reaching their potential.
Meditation for me became the most important part of my tennis practice
I believe with clear concise goal setting and a commitment to a consistent meditation practice, the practitioner becomes increasingly self aware and is able to access their inner power. And ultimately can overcome the mental challenges that were holding them back from reaching their potential.
I truly enjoy giving athletes/performers guidance in these areas to help them cope with the demands of modern day sports/performance, to help them excel at their craft and simultaneously help them develop vital coping skills that are needed in today's world.
I run yoga and meditation workshops for clubs, teams or squads with players/athletes who are looking to improve their physical and mental athletic performance. Yoga postures we practice are tailored to the specific needs of the athletes and their particular sport. We practice various types of meditations in the workshops designed to help the athletes improve their mental game.
Please get in touch if this is something your club/squad would like to invest in.
The power of the present moment promises the potential of peak performance.
