Want to know what people say about me...?
Steve was absolutely fantastic to work with on my Mental Toughness, it was not something I had ever come across before but the premise of actually working on my mental toughness was an absolute no brainer. It gives you at first the ability to know what you do well and what you do not so well and then Steve gives you the skills to deal with these issues. It has changed the way I practice and changed the way I play my cricket completely. Having a chance to actually test out some of the methods whilst I was away in the winter and seeing the reward of coping under pressure was such a great feeling. Along with technical training, I can’t understand why anyone wouldn’t want to work with Steve to become a better performer in sport.
Steve has been brilliant in helping me overcome frustrating periods as a cricketer and go on to perform really well under pressure. His knowledge and passion around high performance coaching and NLP is up there with the very best and it certainly feels like I have an edge over all my competitors.
Through working together both face to face and online I’ve seen significant improvements in my ability to develop skills quickly, stay calm under pressure and ultimately enjoy playing the game I love. Steve has become a great mentor for me and I can always rely on him to go above and beyond to help me in any way he can!
I attended Steve’s ‘Mental Toughness for Business’ workshop in November 2018. Great course and content. I really liked the mix of activities and discussions. Time went quickly however it didn’t feel rushed. I particularly like the group discussions and finding out other peoples views. Overall I thought it was great and I learnt some new things which is always good 🙂
Steve is an inspirational and true leader of people who in my opinion is a breath of fresh air to work with. Supportive and full of encouragement at all times and has truly allowed me to flourish as an individual and given me the opportunity to express my skills in our fast-paced and challenging industry.
Always on hand to offer help and support, but also skilfully taking me out of my comfort zone and allowing me to grow. This gentleman will impress and influence all he works with.
Steve, you have been a fantastic mentor at the times I needed the right guidance. Today WE completed the Exeter Half Marathon and you got me round! Today was a struggle for me and I know I ran better last week, but YOU got me around when you could have been about an hour quicker. Respect and love to you my friend, I have lost 36Ibs on this journey and now need to lose another 28Ibs.
Steve and I worked together for nearly two years. Steve came on board to specifically build leadership capability across all levels within the company. Steve has a genuine passion for bringing the best out of any audience he is in working with, is a truly fantastic facilitator/coach and is a significant asset to any organisation wanting to drive performance through the demonstration of outstanding leadership – was a pleasure working with you Steve!
Steve came to our school and worked with cricketers from U12 through to U18 level. He also ran a session with over 20 of our sports scholars. All the sessions were very well planned, interactive and had a good balance of theoretical and practical activities. Both pupils and staff responded very well to the sessions and were fully engaged and focussed throughout. Mental toughness is definitely an area that pupils should work on and the resources that Steve brought with him, have provided a good platform for our students to build on. I would recommend Steve without hesitation and we will be looking to invite him back in to our school soon!
I enjoyed the whole Cards on the Table experience. The day was well run and helped me realise what I need to do in life to fulfil what I want to do. The main thing that stood out was don’t dwell on the past. That been causing my stress and anxiety. I thought Steve was really great as well. I found out after that this was his first session, It seemed like he had done 100’s as he was really confident and knowledgeable through the whole day. It was crazy hearing other people’s experiences! I have highly recommended this to my workplace and forwarded a couple of names to Steve who I think would benefit from the workshop. Let’s hope they listen to me and get more people to attend.
I’ve found working with Steve highly beneficial, not just for my cricket, but also for my general outlook on life. I’m living life more ‘at cause’ now and this has helped me change my approach and focus on the things that are important to me. He’s helped me change the way I perceive aspects of my life and sport and this has made me respond differently and more positively to situations that affected me negatively in the past. I’ve been introduced to tools and techniques that have helped me ‘be in the present moment’ more and these have given me the edge in matches and helped me combat some of my confidence and fear issues during games. I now feel that I have a much better chance of being more consistent on and off the field. Steve helped me develop my ability to do powerful mental rehearsal and this helps me sculpt my pre-match preparations and has helped me perform much more confidently in games. I would highly recommend Steve for any sports performer in any sport, who is looking to gain an edge in their competition.
As a parent of a 14 year old boy whose cricket talent is sometimes hampered by a lack of self belief and focus, I wish to fully endorse Steve and his methods for bringing the best out of this individual and the manner in which he has helped him meet the challenges he faces in all aspects of his life.
Steve’s approach engaged my boy from the outset and helped him re-evaluate the way he viewed situations (cricketing or otherwise). He gave him new self-confidence and the results have been almost instantaneous and certainly tangible.
I strongly recommend Steve and his coaching methods.
I have recently completed a coaching programme with Steve. After years of long-standing beliefs and thoughts about myself, I decided to take matters into my own hands and do something about it. I came across Pro Mind Coaching & Training and the coaching programme, I thought this could be what I was looking for. I contacted Steve who talked me through what the programme would consist of, so from day one I knew exactly what to expect. The programme was tailored to me and fitted around my schedule, with Steve being on hand 24/7 if needed.
The first session was identifying what I wanted, what did I want to change? We spent time looking at all aspects from work to personal life and Steve made a plan of how we would work through all of these areas. The following weeks through our 1-1 sessions Steve focused on all of the areas that I had identified and used various techniques to help me to recognise and understand why I held certain beliefs and let these influence who I was. As the sessions progressed I found my thought processes changing and started to look at life, work etc. in a different way. I used certain tools so to speak, that Steve had taught me to refocus my thoughts when I needed to. My confidence has grown from session to session and this programme has prompted me to tackle things I would never have thought possible.
I can honestly say that this was one of the best things I have done. Steve was fantastic, he made me feel at ease from day one. I have definitely changed the way I view myself and thoughts and beliefs that were getting in the way of being who I wanted to have are now gone! I still use the techniques now if ever I feel I need to bring myself back to my positive state.
I would recommend this programme to anyone who wants to be the best version of themselves that they can, anyone who has doubts about their status in work or personal life then this is definitely for you. Don’t feel you have to just settle for who you are when the REAL you is waiting to get out and be heard!
