The age of mental skills training has fully arrived as eBay users can now bid on a one-hour mental coaching session aimed at teaching confidence, or any of 7 other critical mental skills important in success

Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 27, 2005 — For the first time ever, a performance specialist in business, sports, academics, and healthcare is offering on Ebay a one hour mental coaching session by phone or in person aimed at teaching one of the 8 critical mental skills.

Bidding on Ebay starts at $10 and any amount above the normal fee for a one-hour session will be donated to charity. The item can be found on eBay here

Dr. John F. Murray, who authored the best-selling tennis book “Smart Tennis” (endorsed by world #1 Lindsay Davenport) and who works with busineses, healthcare personnel, NFL players, as well as professional golfers, tennis players, and other athletes, believes that it’s extremely important to get the message out about the benefits of training the brain.

“We’ve gone as far as we can go physically, but mental training is a territory with unlimited potential for improvement in business, sports, or life,” stated Murray. “With the mind, limitations are always self-imposed,” added the doctor.

Bidding starts at $10 and the winner will receive one hour by phone or in person. It should be made clear that this hour is not for psychological counseling or psychotherapy, but rather for a mental teaching session focused on one of the following mental skills: confidence, focus, energy control, goal setting, imagery, enjoyment, resilience or discipline.

Many pro athletes, teams, businesses, and organizations receive the benefits of mental coaching, but the general population is still often surprised to know that these services even exist, as there are few legitimate performance psychologists or other professionals to provide these services. “It’s truly a cutting edge science and profession, says Murray, but the benefits have been demonstrated time and time again.”

Dr. John F. Murray is a sports psychologist and clinical psychologist providing sports psychology and counseling services based in Palm Beach, Florida.
