"SPORTSMIND is the most amazing book I've ever read! Brilliant!"

'I went to Jeffrey during my off season to work through some anxiety and concentration issues I was having when I competed. After 3 months of speaking and meeting with him regularly, I feel I have matured so much as an athlete. I have so many tools I now know how to use on race day to get me in the perfect frame of mind. I cant wait until the season begins so I can begin using my bag of tricks and reach new heights I now believe I can reach.'
Anna Deery, 400m runner, Vic.
