Specific areas we can help with:

  • Allowing you to gain that extra % that matters in a race Quietening the internal critic that says, 'You can't....' Really getting into the most effective racing 'zone' and believing in yourself Letting go of fears (common ones include cornering or descending on the bike, self doubt and limiting self belief, panic attacks, being controlled by other competitors, players, media...) Positive, effective race visualisation, clear goal setting, long term outcomes and accountability 
  • Removing pre race nerves, sickness and lack of focus Techniques to model excellence of performance & anchor positive states, and qualities Letting go off limiting strategies which allow you to under perform - not believing in yourself, poor planning, nutrition etc Developing a clear training and racing strategy to allow you to commit to performing at your best, enjoy what you do, and have your best race/game possible on the day

"Over many seasons I have worked with Kim using NLP as a massive part of my build up to my Triathlon season and in particular the ITU World Age groups champs where I have now won 3 Silver and Gold. Through Kim I have learnt how to focus my energy many weeks in advance of a major competition and not to waste time worrying about things I can't control. Kim manages to turn my limiting beliefs into real positives so on race day the pressure I feel really diminishes and my confidence to perform to the best of my ability is hugely heightened. When I call on experiences from the past in the race using my trigger points the sensation is amazing and suddenly extra power and speed comes from absolutely nowhere. Totally in the zone, I have always met my goals and would highly recommend Kim" Sophie Whitworth GB Triathlon Team Medallist - World, European & National Champion
