Mental strength is the #1 battleground to performance.
I am here to help YOU to develop an Olympian mindset.
I am a mental coach, with experience in helping tennis players to develop personalized mental strengths. My extensive background of 18 years as a professional on the Women’s Tennis Association, a three-time Olympian, a former top Canadian tennis player, coach to national champions, a parent-coach to my two children, and having my father as my coach throughout my junior years, gives me a multidimensional perspective.
My passion is to help underperformers develop the skills necessary to perform at their best. The biggest game spoiler that causes players to underperform repeatedly is pressure. It is almost impossible for athletes to perform at their best because they don’t have the mental strengths and endurance. They haven’t trained their mental skills as they do with their tennis skills.
I consider myself a ‘tactician’ in mental coaching, providing a tried and true mental program with a daily action plan on building mental strengths. It is the same program that I have used to help players win national championships and attract tennis scholarships from top Division I universities such as George Washington University, The Ohio State University, and The University of Michigan.
I also consider myself a life student staying in tune with the latest tennis and mental strategies. I regularly seek out resources and confer with world-class coaches and players in my webinars. If you have missed the webinars, recordings are available on my website at patriciahy.com/webinars.
I believe that sharing information is the key to a highly successful community. I employ this philosophy in my work through my blogs on my website at www.patriciahy.com/blog. The articles and blogs are written with people who are looking to better themselves in competition in mind. After meticulous planning, hours of research, and a lifetime of experience, the resources I have put together are unique and unmatched. I urge you to visit patriciahy.com/blogs.
I am currently working independently as a mental coach, and I am always interested in a challenge. Reach out to me at [email protected] to connect!
Cheers, Inspire On!
My Values & Beliefs
To replace a habit is a lot harder than starting new ones. Start small and be persistent.
Don't try to be Perfect
If your child slips to old habits once or twice, it’s not the end of the world. Get back on track and keep going. Baby steps.
Building Good Habits are a Process
It takes work. Hard and deliberate work every day. It’s a process, not an event.
