MGCP Certification Program: What’s Included?


What Do You Get With The MGCP Program?

Master mental game coach, Dr. Patrick Cohn, has developed the Mental Game Coaching Professional (MGCP) certification program to help coaches and other professionals succeed in teaching athletes how to improve performance with mental game coaching training.

During this unique 10-week video conference course, Dr. Cohn personally teaches you his mental game coaching system (including AMAP mental game evaluation profiles) and strategies which are based on his 30+ years of experience working with athletes.

The MGCP program will supply qualified coaches, mental coaches, and sports psychologists-in-training with the skills and knowledge to give athletes the mental edge in competition.

“Created a Platform and Foundation”

~Rick Sessinghaus, PGA Tour Coach

“MGCP Program Represents Remarkable Value”

“The MGCP course exceeded my expectations. Having studied Psychology along time ago at University, and having attended numerous mental training courses through the PGA, I was hesitant at first about the financial investment of $3600 USD. But having completed the course I feel that it represents remarkable value, especially when you consider the number of supporting documents, which you can use with your students. The MGCP program is the packaging of a complete mental training program for athletes, and represents the study and experience of Dr. Patrick Cohn over the last 30 years, and is a must for all serious coaches.”*

“A Clear Plan for Working with Athletes”

“Thank you Dr. Cohn for delivering such a great certification program. The MGCP has been different from other classes I have taken. With MGCP I received a clear plan to take my athletes through; a detailed understanding of the cause/effect relationship of mental skills, and the most important part was the numerous resources supplied to help train athletes on the mental game. The knowledge was vital, however what made the difference was the application of the knowledge through real case studies and interaction with the class. I can’t wait to use this with my athletes!”*
