How I Started In Sports Psychology

How to Become a Successful Mental Game Coach

Mental Coach Dr. Cohn

How did you first get started in your career in sports psychology? This is the question that I answer in this mental coach and sports-psychologist-in-training video.

I studied with Ken Ravizza at CSUF in the mid-80s and loved it. Ken suggested that I go work with Bob Rotella at UVA–and I did in the late 80s.

In this video 1, I discuss how I got started working with local golfers in my home town of East Aurora, NY, a small town in Western New York about 30 minutes from Buffalo, NY. Once I started being successful with golfers, they told other golfers about my mental coaching.

In video 2, I discuss my first job experiences in sports psychology. I started as a professor teaching sports psychology at the University level. At this same time, I was working with golfers on the mini-tour and PGA tour.

In video 3, I talk about how I became a successful mental coach working with athletes. I share my experience in the field of applied sports psychology. What experiences do you need to become successful as a sports psychology coach?

Today, I certify sports coaches, like coaches, psychologists, and sports-psychologists-in-training with the MGCP certification program by Peak Performance Sports, LLC.

You’ll tap into my 30+ years of experience as a mental game coach to junior to professional athletes. A one-of-a-kind mental coach certification course, the Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP) program teaches you how to do assessments and teach mental toughness skills to athletes and performers.
