Connecticut here I come!

2007 08 PawsNEffect Front Sign Final

September 18th 2013, I am coming to Connecticut! I am so excited to be visiting Paws ‘n’ Effect in Hamden, CT.

I’ll be offering my foundational seminar which has helped handlers like you to get past their mental obstacles so they can compete with more CONFIDENCE, have more FUN with their dogs and get over their fear of failure… leading to more SUCCESS!!

In just our first 2 hours together, you will learn strategies to defeat that negative voice in your head that’s been tearing you down, and learn the secrets to not letting other people get to you around the rings!

And then, once we’ve done that, we need to put it all into ACTION! So we’re going to head to the agility equipment and put what you’ve learned to work. This is a SUPER fun part of the day as you will find you CAN achieve more than you previously led me to believe!

Mind to Win training days are:

PRACTICAL– I want you to leave knowing HOW to solve your issues and WHAT you can be doing to progress until we meet again.

FUN– expect to laugh, a lot.

INDIVIDUALLY TAILORED– I am there to help YOU, not run through some pre-arranged agenda of my own. So whatever it is we need to work on, that’s my focus.

RELAXED– You will NOT be put on the spot. You will ENJOY yourself!

ADDICTIVE– once you get a taste of being able to make different decisions and even enjoy pressure, don’t be surprised that you don’t want to go back to tearing yourself a new one every time you go wrong.

YOUR STARTER FOR CHANGE– whether you fall apart with nerves, fear failure or get put off by what others are thinking or saying about you, change can start for you at a Mind to Win training day. No-one can change your mindset but you, so I dare you to take this rare opportunity to work with me in person on what you need to change.

Here’s what just a few recent clients have said:

“Day One of the Mind to Win Goal Setting Bootcamp and the time flew by! We worked hard but managed to have a good giggle along the way with plenty of coffee and cake breaks! Exercises and subsequent discussion provoked a few ohhhhh…… moments along with a few ooooooh….. moments which for me generally precede aha…. moments so I’m off to do my homework now. Can’t wait to see what tomorrow brings!” -Lesley Clements (N. Ireland)

    1. Hi Debby,

      the seminar is open to anyone who does dog sports! It’d be great to have you there and I’d be interested to hear how your experiences might be different from those in agility, so if you and/or your friends do come along, please introduce yourself and let’s talk 🙂
