Before I started using Tom, I never realised the effect the mental side of football can have on your game. Now, with the work I’ve been doing, Tom has helped me with strategies, preparation and other techniques that are helping me to overcome any negative thoughts or doubts and are helping me to stay positive when I’m on form as well as positive if I’m off form. I’ve found that regularly during games I practice certain techniques, as it allows my focus to to be on certain parts of the game, as well as this Tom has massively helped with my preparation the day before games and on match days. - Finn Flanagan, Mansfield Town U18s
