My skiing has always been technically good yet I've never managed to ski a red run without having near paralysing fear that has hugely affected my performance!! Whether it's the speed or steepness or perception of danger I have no idea but the result is that I had zero confidence in my skiing ability and had reached a plateau.
When I met with Davie he really quickly managed to relate to my situation. He was able to help me see the whole thing differently but in a really normal and constructive way. We used visualisation to discuss every aspect of the experience both the paralysing fear and also the sense of achievement and excitement of having overcome that fear.
We agreed a simple action plan with clear goals to help me prepare for my upcoming ski trip. This included ways to help relax and lose some of the tension and stress that was affecting my performance.
All I can say is that the result was that I had the best skiing experience I have ever had! My confidence was hugely improved and it was the first time ever that I decided not to take skiing lessons, I simply went skiing! While I had planned to build up to skiing a red run by day 3 I actually managed to tackle my first red run on day 1! My performance improved through most of the week and I was almost like a different person in my ability and level of confidence. I felt more relaxed, more in control and more able to manage my state of mind which in turn had a hugely beneficial impact on my physical ability.
Davie enabled me to have a better understanding of my situation and provided me with the tools to help me overcome my long standing fears and anxiety to great effect. I would highly recommend his approach to anyone needing to make a significant change in their outlook, well-being or physical performance.
