A pedagogical approach 

Mental preparation is a pedagogical approach, a training that consists in developing mental and cognitive skills in order to optimize the personal or collective performance while promoting the pleasure of practice and autonomy.

The two gateways I work with in athletes mental training are:


It is a team effort between the athlete(s), the coach, the mental trainer.

I can help in the following

  • Objectify the setting of sports goals
  • Clarify motivational factors
  • Improve self-confidence
  • Limit negative thoughts
  • Reinforce positive inner speech
  • Take things for what they are
  • Improve the integration of the body diagram
  • Stress management
  • Emotions management
  • Facilitate sports technical learning
  • Promote recovery, relaxation and dynamization
  • Deepen and optimize concentration
  • Allow you to get to know yourself better
  • Refine the ability to perceive and facilitate memorization
  • Strengthen team building

The components of sports performance

My athletes mental training program is tailor made for each athlete and works on all the necessary skills to improve results while remaining in pleasure and respecting the athlete’s ecology. It allows the athlete to reveal himself and improve his performance. Specific tools are used depending on the periods of training or competition.

A fast track to autonomy

It finds its place before, during and after the sporting event and aims for the athlete to achieve his autonomy thanks to the acquisition of tools adapted to his needs. The athlete will be able to act on what he feels, what he thinks and what he does, the three levels of organization (physiological, cognitive and behavioral), components of sports performance.

Get in touch

Whatever the sport you practice, you have a great ambition and the desire to be supported in your progress, you are going through a moment of doubt, a lack of self-confidence, the fear of disappointment, the fear of failure or victory, a drop in performance, do not hesitate to give me a call or send me a message. A direct chat is better than long texts or
Great speeches.

My practice is located in Sommarøy, Tromsø, north of the Arctic Circle, but online video consultations make it possible to break down distances. Don’t hesitate to get in touch. 🙂

A fascination for commitment and surpassing oneself

Sport, coaching and performance improvement have always been part of my core business. Becoming a mental trainer was an obvious choice for me.

The in-depth study of polar exploration history, advances in behavioral, cognitive and emotional therapies, books on self-transcendence or commitment, have long been a formidable source of inspiration for meticulously studying the mechanisms of victory.

My education as sophrologist and instructor in functional breathing, have also allowed me to structure my method and to acquire many additional tools that have enriched my experience.

Thus, my entire career path has led me, over the years, to develop my own athletes mental training method.
