“I feel like mental training is essential to any athelete/person’s success in their sport and life. It has completely transformed the way I train both on and off the field. The mental game is so crucial if you want to further your career. I would recommend this to any person who wants to better themselves to help take their game to the next level. Increased focus, more quality performance, confidence, and self-esteem boosts have all been things that I have noticed have changed for the better with my work with Matt on mental training.”

“Since our meeting, one of the things I have been working on is being more mentally prepared during my warm-ups. I have done way better when it comes to warming up…Coach said I have been focused much better and better able to compete since last year. I think he said something like 200% better. So I am pretty excited about my progress so far.”

“I played a total of 15 rounds of golf in September and was a total of 8 over par. I have played 6 rounds so far in Oct and I am even par for all those rounds…I really can’t thank you enough for the advice you gave me and for the visit. I am learning so much about golf but more importantly about myself. It is just really neat. I have had a couple of days where my swing just didn’t feel right and a couple of days where the putts didn’t fall but I kept on focusing on my routine and self talk (putting the critic in his place) and the scores turned out pretty well. This truly has opened up a whole new world for me.”

“Thanks for the mental training talk on process focus. We won our first round of regionals last night. Beat a team that beat us 3-2 in the regular season. Won at 3 singles in 3 sets. We lost that position in the regular season 1 & 1.
My dad’s (high school) tennis team was thankful of the process focus notes that you gave us. He used them with his team also. They beat a team to win sectionals that had defeated them in the regular season. They then almost upset the #3 team in the state in the first round of regionals. Dad said thanks!”

“You have been a tremendous help to me in my swimming, and my life. The coaches have been telling me “Good Job!” more often and I am no longer afraid of being underwater for long periods of time.”

“I never expected to be going to a sport psychologist, but I’m so glad I did. I first met Dr. Johnson to help overcome my pre-meet anxiety that has devastated me at previous meets. Dr. Johnson helped me figure out some of the things that might be triggering my fear and some ways to deal with it. One of the best things about the meetings is that it makes me think and talk about some of the things that are bothering me. Another thing Dr. Johnson helped me with was doing visualization. It helped me prepare for meets by thinking about things before they happened.
