Reach your full potential
by training your mind…
We have over 30 years experience working with elite sports people
You know you have greatness in you…
…as an athlete, coach or manager. Lately though, you’ve not been getting your best results and/or failing to make your usual impact. And you’ve no idea why.
Finding your excellence within
You’ve attended the motivational talks, stuck to the strategies, incentives and pre-game rituals. You’ve also trained long and hard, so it’s not about perseverance, and you think you’ve got what it takes mentally. But something isn’t gelling. If this strikes a chord with you, then read on.
So, what’s wrong?
Over the last 30 years I have played and then coached netball at an international level. All the ups and downs of that experience made me realise that the magic ingredient, the holy grail of performance, doesn’t arise from incentives, hard work or mental toughness. Traditionally, these elements appear instrumental but truly outstanding human performance (at any age and in any field, not just sport) springs automatically and effortlessly through the person themselves when they are completely present in the moment, enabling their mind to flow free and clear, uncluttered by over-thinking or self-limiting beliefs.

Conditioning vs the power of the mind
As babies, we innately know how to live life – we learned to walk without being taught, after all – but as children, we’re conditioned out of naturally thinking for ourselves, so when things go wrong we seek answers from others, via psychologists, counselling, hypnosis etc. Believe it or not, the truth is inside us all along! The human mind is the invisible and undiscovered variable that drives all behaviour, especially in the field of performance. It’s simply a matter of understanding how your mind works and harnessing the powerful resources that lie within.
This process will transform the quality of your thinking and your entire life, so you can:
- Operate effectively and productively irrespective of feeling anxious or overwhelmed.
- Uncover your innate confidence, and re-establish your intuitive drive for learning and fun.
- Expand your current skill capacity and extend what’s possible for you; take action with ease.
- Suffer less and enjoy your sport and life more, without limitation and restriction.
The Three Principles of life
What People Say About Working With Denise
I appreciate the support Denise gave me when I was transitioning into my new role at Leinster and helping me understand how to ‘free my mind!
Before I took part in Denise’s Health and Well Being programme, I stressed in many situations; it would prevent me from taking part in different things. I now look at the situations holistically and not let thoughts prevent me from putting myself forward.
I am so grateful to have worked with Denise, I used to float in and out of different moods and believed it was other things and situations causing them. Honestly, this understanding has changed my life.
I enjoyed this course very much as it improved my shooting technique and accuracy dramatically. I learned that you do not have to be controlled by your negative thoughts because they are not you.
I was fortunate enough to have a conversation with Denise when we met in America. It would be easy to accuse me of exaggeration or sensationalising by making the following statement, but I can only offer you the truth as I see it.
Denise has the skills and experience to wake people up to deeper knowledge about themselves. In the sporting arena, this knowledge happens to be crucially important.
Denise’s new approach is great for teamwork, we don’t get upset with each other anywhere near as much, and get over disappointments quickly.
Denise has a tremendous understanding of how to achieve elite performance in sport. Her contagious enthusiasm is motivating and inspires you to the next level
Denise has been instrumental in my evolving understanding of the Three Principles and how they specifically apply in high-performance sport. Her insightful and intuitive way of working has challenged and deepened my fundamental understanding of all human performance. I’ll always be appreciative of her significant role in my development as a performance director and coach.
Denise is impressive in her abilities by any standard. Her ability to teach and develop those around her, mark her out as someone with exceptional leadership and coaching skills. I constantly seek advice and counsel from her and trust her implicitly.
I enjoyed speaking with Denise about the mind and performance. The conversations were very insightful and always had me challenging and questioning the status quo regarding mental performance. The critical pointer Denise gave was that our natural state is freedom of mind, clarity and potential. We don’t need to overexert the mind to find these states. Searching for them often leads us further into tension. I found this very relatable to direct experiences in life and sport.
I used to struggle to remain calm and confident in stressful situations, what others think of me, what would happen if I did something wrong? We are all capable of achieving, no part of our abilities is lacking! This programme has truly changed me for the best and is perfect during my final year of University.
