The mental and emotional strength of an elite athlete.

Behavioural Change & Sports Performance

Behaviour is linked to sports perfromance - to achieve improvements in your performances you must change your regular and consistent behaviours! However, no one likes change, and habitual behaviours are often 'hard-wired' into our neurology. Consequently successful and sustained behavioural changes can only be achieved by techniques which change at this deeper level. These techniques are only available from Sports NLP processes.

What you will learn :

  • Dilt's model of human behaviour (Identity, Beliefs, Values, Strategies, Capabilities, Behaviours) and the NLP model of behavioural change
  • Four step process for changing behaviours.
  • How to positively change responses to negative past experiences, and be able to teach this process to athletes to enable them to 'let go' of past poor performances.

Athletes can attend the full program or individual days, and workshops are held regularly throughout Australia and internationally.

** For tuition fees and course dates refer to workshop diary **

Visual Power! Dream It Into Being

Learn proven, power motivation techniques for enhancing your own self-motivation, and important motivation principles for teachers, coaches and team leaders for successfully motivating others in a positive, empowering way.

Core of Confidence! Master Your Emotions

The best athletes have an unshakeable confidence and a positive emotional control that enables them to excel under pressure. However, like other attributes, confidence and positive emotional control are learned behaviours and can be improved with the right training. Learn how to develop your confidence and master negative emotions to get into the peak performance 'zone' using simple, practical techniques suitable for both training and competition.

Irresistible Momentum! Develop Performance Consistency

Consistent success is a result of building and maintaining personal momentum by holding a compelling positive vision of your success. Learn how to build and access 'positive compulsions' and use your personal 'timeline' to be more successful.

Learn how to stay focused on the positive, build a powerful self image, and develop the mental toughness and optimistic outlook of a consistent champion.

No Limits! Smashing the Belief Barriers

Beliefs are powerful determinants of sports performance: the body cannot do what the mind won't believe - yet many beliefs are socially accepted 'realities' rather than truth. Learn how beliefs work in our lives; how to release limiting beliefs; and how to encourage more positive and empowering beliefs in your life, and enhance your sports self esteem.

"Jeff has created a powerful blend of sport psychology, NLP and hypnosis that delights and entertains. It takes the 'thinking' out of positive thinking making it easy and effortless and provides the tools to make unconscious mastery a reality.

Fluently presented, Jeff's a great facilitator.

If you have a chance to go to Sportsmind Mental Mastery - take it!"

David Smith, Sport Psychologist, London, U.K.

Lizzie Watson, Personal Trainer, NSW.

Attendees walked away with a range of practical tools which they could utilise immediately for their teaching and their own tournament play."

Phil Ayres, National Education Manager, Australian PGA


The Sportsmind APP

Download the Sportsmind App on the App Store.

The Sportsmind app includes 5 free relaxation and visualisation sessions and a preview of the 60 day Mental Training Program. The audio sessions have been used by thousands of athletes world wide for over twenty years.  Each session lasts approximately 20 minutes and uses a different relaxation technique to achieve a specific outcome:

  1. Mental Practice for YOUR Sport
  2. Building Powerful Motivation
  3. Intending Compelling Goals
  4. Developing a Positive Mental Attitude
  5. Harnessing Your Visual Power for Recovery & Healing

The audio sessions contained in this app utilise deep relaxation and visualisation 

techniques designed to help you improve your sports performance and general well-being, 

and require you to fully concentrate mentally, with your eyes closed.   Do not use the sessions when driving a vehicle or doing anything which requires your attention or for you to be fully aware, alert and in control of what you are doing.

An in app purchase provides access to the 60 day Mental Training Program. This training program is unique in its practical ability to help you develop the mental toughness of a champion.  Since its original publication in 1993, literally thousands of elite sportspeople from over forty different sports have benefited from the training. 

This NEW EDITION is revised and improved with extra information and exercises to make it even more effective. Mental toughness can be taught and learned.  You can develop your Mental Toughness by completing the daily exercises in the 60 day program.   Invest in yourself, and become a shareholder in your own improved sports performances for less than $1.00 per day.

To get the most benefit from the Sixty Day Mental Training Program (in app purchase) please complete the exercises each day in the order they are presented, including making use of the audio sessions when it is safe and appropriate to do so.

An untrained mind cannot accomplish anything of significant worth - and this is particularly true in sport.  'Trained' in this Sportsmind sense is all about your ability to know what to focus on and pay attention to at any point in time, and the ability to maintain that concentration in the face of external pressures.  This is mental toughness.  The Sportsmind mental training manual helps you to achieve and unlock your full physical potential, as you learn and master the seven skills of the sports mind:

  • Positive Self-Motivation
  • Powerful Goal Achievement Strategies
  • Emotional State Mastery
  • Positive Mental Attitude
  • Strong Concentration & Focusing Abilities
  • Positive Self Image & Unshakeable Self Confidence
  • Precision Visualisation Skills

I've designed this work program to be an experiential learning - so while there will be specific techniques and tools which you can take and use in your specific sports contexts, the whole objective of my approach is that you will become a better athlete just by working through this sixty day program.   You will find it a challenge, but I know you’re up for this challenge.

I suggest that you don't do more than one set of exercises per day, and that you do follow the order as I have designed it, since there is a logical progression built into the program.

The first two weeks are devoted to loosening the hold your current beliefs about yourself have over you, and replacing limiting beliefs with more positive, constructive beliefs.  This forms the foundation of the program.    From then on the program provides practical ways to implement the goal setting, motivation, state management, positive mental attitude, concentration, and positive self-image and visualisation principles and techniques detailed in the Sportsmind text book.  The final couple of weeks of training provide some practice in advanced Sportsmind skills.

Jeffrey Hodges

Sportsmind Founder and Director
