About Kate Chesser
Have you ever felt..
The more you practice, the more positive you try and be, the worse you play?
You’ve come back from injury and although you’ve recovered physically, you haven’t reached the level you were at before the injury?
You’re on a run of poor form and you can’t stop it?
A match is yours for the taking, but you can’t seem to finish it off?
Although you're feeling pretty good, match day nerves get the better of you?
If so, you are not alone.
Playing competitively is like being on an emotional rollercoaster..
You’re often on your own out there, you know you have it in you to play great, you’ve experienced it before so you know what that feels like.
For no apparent reason though it sometimes doesn’t go to plan.
Errors creep in, self doubt comes from nowhere and even though you know the self abuse isn’t helping, you can’t stop the negative chatter going round and round in your head.
Then before you know it, the tide has turned and in the blink of an eye you have to shake your opponents hand and say, “Well played, great match.”
The next day you go back to the practicing, and work on whatever skill, technique, tactic or strategy it was that you think went wrong for you.. and the cycle continues.
How Can I Help?
- Using EFT and other mental game techniques, I can help you re-programme your subconscious for success so you play your best.. effortlessly and more often.
- As a Registered Nutritional Therapist I can help you gain the competitive advantage and optimise your nutrition, training and recovery based on DNA Testing.
- I hold consultations over Zoom or face to face so it doesn't matter where you are in the world.
It was tennis finals day. I was playing an opponent who I would normally beat easily yet I was struggling with the pace coming off her shots. She was passing me easily and the ones I could get to, my return shot was weak and my coordination just felt off. I lost.
This wasn’t the first time I’d felt like this.
6 years earlier..
I was on the exact same court, Seeded 2 and I was in the final against the No.1 Seed. I was also in the Doubles and the Mixed Finals that day.
I won the Ladies Singles and the Mixed that year. I was flying high and felt unstoppable.
In the following years I went on to win the Singles, the Doubles and the Mixed many more times, consistently beating players seeded higher than me.
Life was pretty good.
I went travelling, took my tennis racket with me and visited some amazing places. I played with some great players in Australia and played at Melbourne Park.
Even then I noticed physically things weren’t quite right. The heat was getting to me, fatigue was high. I put it down to being English in the Australian heat.
Again, I noticed more things going a bit wrong.. Noticed my feet would go shaky after about 5 miles of running, I fell over a couple of times while out walking.
Again, I was losing to players I shouldn't lose to.
I thought it was my fitness so I trained harder, practiced more. Went to the gym more often, started running longer distances. I mean.. it had to be my fitness right?!
May 24th 2005 I was diagnosed with MS.
I thought my life had ended. I woke one morning and everything I had taken for granted was taken away from me.
I was heartbroken.
I stopped playing tennis because it was too hard to run. I was completely gutted. I loved tennis. It was part of who I was. I'd started playing at age 8 so it had pretty much always been a part of my life. Not to mention all the other sports I loved playing.
When you’re handed a diagnosis of MS and the doctor tells you there’s nothing they can do for you, you turn to the alternative therapies. This is where the whole world of holistic therapies opened up. I turned to nutrition and subconscious reprogramming. I know.. I mean what even is that?!?
Turns out they're amazing. I had such success in these fields myself I retrained as a Nutritional Therapist and EFT Practitioner.
My turning point came in 2017 when I turned on the tv to watch Wimbledon and saw some wheelchair tennis. I watch these 4 amazing athletes playing the most fantastic tennis and immediately knew I wanted to be part of it.
As soon as I saw it I started playing. It was the best thing I could have done. It turned my life around. Albeit I had to go from being a player used to winning, to a really bad player who hadn’t picked up a racket for 15 years and was now in a wheelchair.
Haha,, believe me I've done a lot of tapping on this!
I had to draw on all my new skills to get to where I am now.
Your story will be different from mine.. but the feelings of desire, hope, exhilaration and love for your game, regardless of your sport, will be the same.
I know that if you implement the strategies that I use myself and with many of my clients you too can improve your game and get even better results.
Plus, I bet you any money your fellow competitors and opposition won't be doing these things so you'll absolutely have the advantage over them.
It might sound too good to be true.. but I promise you I'm not exaggerating.
