Meet Karen Croft, Mental Performance Coach from Outward Success
It was an easy decision to ask Karen to be a part of our Kickstarter competition, having worked with her myself just last year. Karen made a huge difference to my mindset when I came across a bit of a confidence crisis when competing. I never considered my own mental agility as a factor in dressage, but having spent just four sessions with her, she completely changed my ability to concentrate in the arena and work with any negative thoughts I was having. I now consider her to be a vital part of my training.
Karen is an experienced mental performance coach operating through her own company, Outward Success. Using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis Karen helps clients overcome mental and emotional barriers to achieve ultimate success in sport, business, and life.
As a NLP Master Sports Practitioner and General Practitioner, Karen is a highly regarded and qualified NLP practitioner and coach. This qualification is further complimented by credentials in a range of areas from renowned bodies such as Chartered Management Institute, Sport England, UKCC, England Netball, and the British Horse Society.
