Frequently Asked Questions
Information that is helpful to everyone
Our program works directly with the coach and the athlete in a way that is always accountable. Text messages and calls are done with the coach or parent of the athlete on the phone the whole time. For healing to happen and growth to stay its important for the support group of the athlete to understand the current goals.
We also believe that this process creates a safe environment for the athlete and myself. Using this format I believe that coach and athlete interaction can improve and it will minimize unhealthy relationship development.
1. How long does it take to work?
A:Since mental blocks and fear based thinking is often developed over the lifetime of an athlete it is typically not reversed in a day or a week. Some problems, such as technical adjustments can be fixed with correct technique and the fear subsides over the course of a few weeks to a month. Typical results for an athlete are 3 - 12 months.
2. How many months should I sign up for?
A:Typically 1 - 2 months is sufficient. The goal is to change the thinking and develop habits that will grow in the athlete until the courage overtakes the fear. Once the growth has started it can be nurtured and "watered" by the coach with great success.
3. What happens if I relapse?
A:While relapse is normal, the likelihood trends towards developing progressively less severe and shorter term challenges. This is augmented by an increasingly more effective tool repository that the athlete and coach can use to regain traction and confidence during early onset.
4. Is there any guarantee?
A:While it would be lovely to suggest that a counselor could provide a guarantee of success, the burden of responsibility is always on the actionable body. It is unlikely that there will be a case where I am unfamiliar with the variables at play, however, in that event I will either provide my services free of charge in an attempt to learn what is at work, or I will provide a refund of the session cost. Refunds and payment diversion is done solely at my discretion.
