Mary-Ann Dove has tremendous value to add both to professional sports people as well as those who aspire to become professional and their management teams. I have found that she possesses the unique ability to understand her clients and engage with them in the individual way that they each require. She has a wealth of working knowledge and experience with regard to communication as well as knowing how to holistically take care of the whole person. Here is a professional who not only understands the value of mental coaching and player development, but truly cares about her players and is prepared to walk the extra mile with them.

In my opinion, the nature in which Mary Ann deals with the players is where her true value lies. Each player is dealt with uniquely and an individualized action plan is developed. More importantly, Mary Ann takes it upon herself to follow up regularly with the players to track their progress, and sometimes to add a little motivation! I really enjoyed working with Mary Ann and look forward to our paths crossing in the future.
