About Denise

When you’re involved in a sport for any length of time, you know there are times you’ll face disappointment.

As the National Netball Coach for Scotland, I had one of these critical moments back in 2012.   With the stars aligned for greatness, we had a pivotal competition coming up on our schedule. We played excellent netball for weeks in the lead-up, and our world ranking was rising. It was time to make a statement!  

Only we didn’t — we made uncharacteristic mistakes, bickered amongst ourselves, our heads went down early, minds got cluttered and nothing I did made a difference.   We finished last, and I felt sick at what transpired. 

This time was my turning point  – I had to unlock the key to consistent, quality performances.   Little did I know that what I’d discover would turn out to be the ultimate game-changer for people who are inspired to create, explore and achieve in life.

There’s nothing I hate more than seeing performers struggle because strategies and techniques taught as part of our cultural conditioning inadvertently muddle their mind.  

You don’t need more things to master and practice to be on your game. When people deeply connect with the source of all human endeavour, they naturally maximise their training, access data and transfer skill capacity to the competition arena with ease! 

How can we help you?

If you’re open to it, we will:

  • Show you the power of the human mind, so that you play with the psychological freedom that leads to extraordinary results. 
  • Explore a ridiculously simple way to stay in the game even when their thinking isn’t co-operating. 
  • Help you to minimise slumps and losing streaks caused by excessive thinking.
  • Point you towards a higher quality of thinking that nurtures unity and team cohesion, even when personalities clash.

I love what I do – performance sports has been my passion for 25 years playing and coaching around the globe in Asia, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, North America and Europe. Now I get to share what eluded me all that time – how wonderful is that!
