Mental Skills Coach
Julia Allain is the Founder of Allain Mental Performance LLC, a Connecticut based company that specializes in improving mental performance for athletes. She earned her B.A. in psychology from Providence College and a M.A. in sport psychology from McGill University. Julia has always been innately curious about human motivation and performance. In graduate school, she completed a master’s thesis analyzing NCAA division I hockey coaches and their in-game communication, motivation, and management strategies.
Julia’s program supports and develops leadership qualities, athlete roles, psychological momentum, and a wide variety of sport specific psychological skills. Her clients gain a new perspective into the importance of psychological skills for athletes as they continue to develop and prepare for the next level. While most coaches place a great emphasis on physical preparation, these frequently overlooked psychological skills are often the difference maker in one’s ability to perform at their optimal level.
