"We were approached by Peter to participate in the Mental Toughness Program after Peter recognised that our son was struggling with the mental side of his hockey game. Our son possesses great physical hockey skills but his lack of mental coping skills, especially in high pressure games, was affecting his performance. He was anxious and lacking in confidence both prior to high pressure games and during the games, resulting in a drop in his usual standard of performance""After completing the Mental Toughness sessions, Peter has now given him skills to help recognise and understand the triggers of mental stress so that he can cope and remain focused. We have already seen an improvement, not only with sport but in his general life, and we will definitely utilise the ongoing support that is provided after completion of the sessions. We would highly recommend this course for anyone who is struggling with this increasingly important part of sport"
"Our 16 year old daughter struggled with fears and confidence in her running when it came to her performance on race day. Despite being a good trainer and working hard, she was unable to translate this in her races. Working with Peter, our daughter has improved in her performance as a runner and is performing more consistently. Natalie now feels more self confident and has been able to manage her nerves more effectively. Thank you Peter!"
"Having had a prolonged period of mental blocks on the golf course, I decided to engage Peter for assistance. We worked together over a 4 week period to identify the core of the issue and have put in place some great strategies for improvement. Peter has a very professional, but down to earth empathetic approach, which really provides the perfect environment for improvement. I can highly recommend him to anyone looking for performance improvement."
I greatly appreciate Peters guidance to help me with my mental toughness. He presented useful tools that suited me and my challenges, and he helped me define my goals. After working with Peter I feel stronger and more confident than before and my game has improved! I am forever grateful for his work.
"Peter was referred to us for our son who needed to build mental and physical confidence in playing sports. Although he has very good skills, and trained extremely well, he was unable to transfer that confidence into game days" Peter worked with our son to build on the love of his sports which helped dispel the self talk that he was not as good as other boys and how to focus on specific actions to assist him improve parts of his game. My son developed an awareness of why he loves playing sport, what he has achieved and what he is grateful for in his life" "We have noticed he is more resilient and focused, and also more aware of how we support him as parents. He is definitely more confident when playing sports now. Moreover, Peter was fun and a great communicator, which translated into highly integrative sessions which my son really enjoyed" "I highly recommend Peter’s teachings and approach for anyone who wants to improve their sports performance and life’s challenges".
My eldest son who is 14 years of age is a talented cricketer but was struggling to perform when playing despite looking really good in the cricket nets. After we found Peter from the mental toughness website we contacted him and had the first four sessions online. In the meantime my son got picked for the college first eleven team which plays the premier youth grade in Wellington. Anyway after taking the lessons or sessions from Peter he was mentally ready and in his first game which was a traditional three day game Anthony scored a well deserved half century as an opening batsman against a very tough attack. As parents we were very humbled and happy to see the results immediately from the four sessions that Peter had done. There was a major difference in how my son was thinking and applying his skills to the game situation and also it has completely changed the behaviour at home and with his academics as well. As a parent I would definitely recommend this mental toughness program to any boy or girls since it gives the individual self belief and grit when the going gets tough because these skills can be very useful and powerful in their personal life as well.
