Our next webinar will focus on coaching in a way that supports an athlete's mental health. Mental Performance Consultant, Dani Wilson will be delivering a session that will highlight the importance of athlete mental health while training and competing. Athletes, parents, and coaches are encouraged to attend this webinar.

Dani Wilson holds a Master’s Degree in Sport and Exercise Psychology from The University of British Columbia. Her Master’s Thesis Manuscript, which explores the role of self compassion and mental toughness in the pursuit of athletic achievement and stress management in elite level, women athletes, was recently published in the journal: Psychology of Sport and Exercise. Aside from research, Dani works as a Canadian Sport Psychology Association certified Mental Performance Consultant (MPC), where she provides a variety of team and individual sport athletes with the mental skills training and resources necessary for peak performance. She has worked with several Olympic and World Championship level athletes and varsity teams such as, UBC Women’s Golf, Rugby and Soccer, Douglas College Men’s and Women’s Basketball. She also works as MPC for Team BC in pursuit of the Canada Summer and Winter Games. She uses a humanistic, strengths-based approach to her consulting, drawing on her strong theoretical knowledge base, experiences as an athlete herself and now, her own research.
Dani believes that when delivered in a systematic and consistent way that promotes practice, patience and persistence, mental skills have the potential to improve performance and overall well-being. The opportunity to offer this sort of potential to aspiring athletes is the driving force behind Dani’s passion for sport psychology.
