In this week's sports psychology podcast, mental game of sports expert, Dr. Patrick Cohn, answers mental game questions in Sessions With Doc.

I get a lot of questions about mental coaching and what a mental coach does and how the process works...

Today, I'm going to answer a questions from one of our listeners about:

"How does mental coaching or mental training work?"

COHN: Once we get connected with an athlete that is interested in metal coaching, we will ask a few questions and see if it is a good fit. Sometimes it is just not a good fir and for whatever reason we feel like the athlete isn't read for mental coaching or doesn't need mental coaching.

COHN: So we just start with a conversation with an athlete or parent about what we do as a mental coach and ask them a few question about their mental game.

COHN:Once were on go and an athlete commits to doing the mental training with us, then we shoot off two different assessments for the athlete. One is called an AMAP Assessment, or Athlete's Mental Aptitude Profile, and the second is the AMAT Test, which we use as a pre-coaching gauge to find out where the athlete is with their mental game.

Listen to Dr. Cohn's new podcast to find out the next steps in the mental coaching program once we have the forms back.
