During what part of the season is it best to work on mental skills training?
The fact that an athlete acknowledges the possibility of working with a mental performance consultant is already a step forward. Sports psychology works not only with problem athletes but also with any athlete who simply wants to improve performance. Mental skills training can be done before the season starts since less pressure exists; during the season as more practical and real life experiences arise; and after the season once you can reflect back on the season and decide what area(s) need work.
How often should I speak with or meet with my mental performance consultant Lior Doron?
At first if performance is affected by mental blocks or performance enhancement is needed via mental skills training, athletes meet with their mental performance consultant several times a week. It can even take place once a week and we also have an option in which you learn mental skills stratgies on your own at your own pace... Sometimes an athlete can meet or talk for a "fine tune up".

Flow minutes is consulting time. No, there are no differences in the type of consulting purchased whether it be by phone, email or live chatting software.
I feel uncomfortable talking on the phone or using chatting software. Can I receive consultation sessions using email only. If so, what is the price?
Yes, you can. Consulting with your mental performance consultant can be facilitated via email. Here you can exchange exercises and discuss peak performance issues via email. Time is deducted by the amount of time that your mental performance consultant composes and reads email (For Your Information Coach Lior Doron types 50 words a minute).
Flow minutes are reduced in a variety of ways and billed in blocks of 10 minutes;
1) Meeting times (face-to-face, phone, or any chatting software etc.)
2) Reading and writing emails (Don't worry, coach Lior Doron types about 50 words per minute). For instance, reading an email might take one or two minutes while writing one can take one or two minutes.
3) Sending, receiving and correcting your sports psychology exercises. Most of the time, however, the bulk of assignments are all done already. Often, there are only slight modifications that need to be done in order to tailor an exercise for you. Again, this only takes a few minutes.
4) Travel time and game observation. You will be charged for the distance traveled and for game observation at a rate of $50 per hour with a minimum of 1 hour.
You can avoid worrying about time and simply getting one of the unlimited sports psychology consulting package! Your credit card will be billed every month the same amount.

What do I need to know about the expiration date?
When you buy any flow time (or consulting time) such as phone, instant messaging or email, you have six months to use it. Otherwise, your flow minutes are no longer valid and expires.
What happens if I do not use all my flow minutes during the six month expiration date?
When you subscribe to Flow in Sports or buy flow minutes to discuss creating, recreating and maintaining flow in your sport, you have six months to use your minutes. Unfortunately, unused minutes after the six months period are lost.
How can I avoid losing my flow minutes or consulting time?
To avoid losing your flow minutes or consulting time, you may purchase additional flow minutes so that you do not lose consulting time and your expiration date will be extended. For example, you have purchased the basic individual gold membership package but have not used all the time and are approaching the six month expiration date. To avoid losing this time, you may purchase any other memberships which 1) automatically extends your membership by six more months and 2) automatically adds the number of minutes which would have expired to the number of flow minutes to your new membership.
When will I be told that I am running out of flow minutes? If I am using the phone or the internet as a consulting session, will our conversation suddenly stop?
No. You will be told that you are running out of time a few minutes before a consulting session should end. Flow in Sports will do the best to put a proper closure to the conversation so that you feel ready and up for your next challenge.
Can I share or transfer some consulting time with another athlete?
No, when you buy flow minutes, this is purchased for your benefits and is not meant to be transferred to someone else.
