...Or Does Any Of This Sound Like You?

Wanting to be better can sometimes be really hard because with wanting more, we are rarely happy with where we are or what we did today because we know we could have done something better and we want to do it better in order to get better... So... 

  • Do you feel like... you are almost never happy with your performance?
  • Does it seem like... you don't have a coach or mentor around you that believes in and pushes you the right way?
  • Are you frustrated that... moving from one team/job to another feels like you’re just trading one set of challenges for another?
  • And when it comes down to it, do you...  just simply feel like you have too much on your mind and you wish you could worry and stress less?

👉 It might be time for a deeper change

TESTIMONIALS

With the help of Saana, I managed to get out of the hole that I was stuck in due to my overthinking and perfectionism. Now I feel like I can relax and just let the body take over when I play! I don’t need to think all the time and I can just let the body do the work. I don’t overthink and analyze anymore, also my perfectionism is at a healthy level right now. I trust myself much more than before and I can finally just focus on the present moment. Thank you Saana!

Saana brought up new perspectives and ideas to our project making it even better. We were impressed especially with her writing skills and production of content in written form. Best example of her know-how in this area are her pieces in the book called “Becoming an Elite Athlete” (Kehity Huippu-urheiljaksi) published by the Olympic Committee.”"

I also value myself and my hard work more – I can see that I am already successful, even tho I am not “world class” as my perfectionist mind wanted me to be. 
I can play with so much more freedom as I am not judgmental anymore which helps me reach a more natural and fearless state on court. I can enjoy the sport again!
