Beat the Boredom – Resilience and Confidence Training for Athletes

Maximise the downtime, be super ready, inside and out when sport is back after the Coronavirus restrictions are lifted!

A small group transformative coaching program for athletes at every level of the game.

With Sport on hold, how do you keep motivated, and resilient with the utmost confidence that you’ll be ready to get back out there fighting fit!

You used to be first to training, excited to see your team-mates, and ready to work hard, but now you have doubts you have what it takes? You even question your motivation, maybe its time to give up and do something else? Is this what you want, then no problem, but don’t let your noisy mind take over and ruin your chances of selection and playing the sport you love!

This small-group resilience and confidence training will ensure the coronavirus pandemic is not controlling your destiny you are! This program is for athletes at all levels, club, regional and national level in all sports. You will become highly self-aware, confident, energised and be able to overcome mood swings that have you feeling lethargic, panic and boredom.

How a small-group (3-4 athletes) online training can help you:

With over 30 years’ experience in elite sports performance, engaging in transformative conversations with coaches and managers at club, regional, elite, national and professional levels, I can help you to:

  • Understand the content of your thinking, in a whole new way that leaves you unafraid of your moods.
  • Uncover what causes self-image and identity issues, and live life fully involved and engaged.
  • Embrace the power of insight, that leads to positive, profound and sustainable change.
  • Harness the ‘just play’ freedom feeling rather than struggling and striving to make it to the next level.
  • Realise your innate creative potential and enjoy a happy, healthy life even amidst these times of restriction and change.
  • Enhance your relationships, especially with those close to you; help your parents to understand your world and not worry!

As a result, the following impact is on offer:

  • Navigate expectations through times of uncertainty and challenge with clarity.

  • Overcome fear and insecurity not knowing what the future holds now that your training is interupted.

  • Be comfortable being happy, laughing and having fun, yes even now!

  • Beat the boredom, find your natural joy, curiosity and peace amidst the chaos of the Coronavirus.

  • Banish conflict, and unnecessary hurt, remain calm and creative, make this time count!

  • Stop blaming others or circumstances for the way you feel, take responsibility for your own psychology.

  • Make the most of this forced time-out, be super ready; spiritually and emotionally aware.

If we can get together and help the youth see the simplicity of life, see that they have this beauty inside of them, to see they have this power within them, the youth will grow up very very wise, and this world will change and become a far far better place to live in.

What People Say About Working With Denise

Matthew Roberts

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.

Floyd Woodrow MBE

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.

Hannah Salem

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.

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.

Nadia McMillian

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.

Vicky Norman

Meeting Denise was perfect timing, written in the stars, foretold, whatever. My world was falling apart, my marriage had ended, my child was in serious trouble, and I was upping sticks and moving up North to run the biggest, most complex project of my career.
Four months later, my project is an astonishing success, my marriage is back on track, and best of all, my baby is coming back to me. I am different at work, at home, inside my head, and others can see it. The dark days aren’t dark any more because they don’t last, and the light days are far more frequent. Denise’s workj isn’t just amazing in the world of sport but any area of life.

Mark Harris

I reached out to Denise when my world seemed to be falling apart. I had recently received a diagnosis of two different types of cancer; my son was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer and had little time to live. I did not know how to process all of this, and my mental state spiralled! Within ten minutes of quiet time with Denise, I felt everything lifting from my shoulders and a feeling of calm settling in its place. Working with Denise has given me a deeper understanding and knowledge of the mind, it keeps me on a healthy path not only in general day-to-day life but as a life skill in my work environment and sport. Forever grateful to you, Denise.

Charlie Harris

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.

Grayson Hart

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 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!

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.

Jack Pransky

Denise Holland is one of my best “students.” She is one of the few students I have asked to teach with me, and I was and remain very impressed with her presence, her knowledge, her wisdom, her feeling and her responsiveness. I would say anyone who works with Denise is in excellent hands.

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.
