Mind-Body Performance Workshops
“The Skate Canada Eastern Ontario organization engaged Rebekah Dixon to present a tailored session which focused on empowering individuals to make positive changes in their life, define the steps to be taken to achieve both short and long term goals, and provide the extra impetus often required to stay focused on what they need as high performance athletes and coaches. The feedback on the presentation was very positive and appreciative – I would highly recommend her!”-Gregory Rochefort “I have amazing news. I am thrilled. Remember that little blonde haired girl (10 years old) that had her axel and lost it and it has devastated her over the last 8 weeks? …I had told her about her mind being the only thing holding her back on Monday mornings lesson and then you spoke to her about the EXACT same thing…it just seemed to relieve her stress and give her a determination to know she could do it. Tonight she landed the axel again! It was wonderful!” Kim FergusonAthens FSC

A 30 min coaching call per week with the athlete where we progress through a series of questions and discussion to bring clarity to what the athlete wants to achieve, the action steps to take daily, monthly and weekly to guarantee success, etc.
A 30 min coaching call per month with the parent to ensure the concepts taught and tasks requested during the process are understood and fully implemented and that we are all on the same page.
