The 1-on-1 coaching sessions are in person, on zoom, or via phone and they are schedule based on your child’s needs and availability. Your child will start with a free 30 minute 1-on-1 intro session, then your coach will recommend which option will be the best fit for your child. The first session in your program is generally 1 hour and the remaining sessions are 30 minutes.
**Time spent working with parents ranges from 25-75% of the program hours – depending on the maturity of the child**
1-on-1 Coaching Will Help Your Child:
Overcome Self-Doubt, Fear of Failure, & Overthinking
Stop Worrying About What Other People Think & Play with Confidence
Manage Their Thoughts, Emotions, & Nerves
Block Out Distractions & Focus on What They Can Control
Bounce Back from Mistakes & Be Relentless In Their Pursuit of Peak Performance
At CEP, our purpose is to help your child achieve Consistent Elite Performance.
In order to do that, they need to spend more time in the ZONE.
The problem is, like most athletes, they spend too much time in their own head.
This can be frustrating and discouraging for both you and your child because they put in all this work to develop their physical abilities, but their mindset is causing them to underperform.
We understand that helping your child strengthen their mindset can be difficult and confusing.
That is why the CEP System has 3 simple steps that have helped 10,000’s of athletes get in the ZONE:
When you and your child join our programs, your child will stop spending so much time in their own head and start achieving Consistent Elite Performance.
You wouldn’t build a house without a blueprint – and in the same manner your child shouldn’t work on their mental game without first knowing what to work on.
The CEP assessment breaks down your mindset into the 7 Mental Skills that your child needs to develop in order to build a strong foundation and win the mental game.
This breakdown not only helps us determine which mental skills to prioritize in your child’s program, but also ensures we keep you and your child accountable to making progress.
Now that you can see what you and your child will be working on, let us show you HOW you will work on it – the CEP Mental Toolbox.
A good blueprint won’t help without the right tools. For example, your child may have tried the cookie-cutter advice perpetuated by sport culture like ‘be positive, forget about it, or don’t worry about it.”
But when your child builds their mental game by patching together all these fluffy quick fixes – it’s like building a house out of straw – it is not sustainable & will fall apart in the face of adversity & pressure.
Instead, your child needs to build their mental game – like you would a brick house – out of practical & personalized strategies that deliver reliable and repeatable results.
We have 3 sets of tools – your child might not need to use all the tools, but they do need to build their personalized mental toolbox based on their blueprint and current needs.
All of our athletes consistently implement these 4 Fundamentals to get in the Zone on game day. The Alter Ego is at the core, and the other 3 strategies create a continuous Prepare-Play-Reflect Process that maximizes your child’s ability to show up as their best self.
Mental Preparation is used before games and practices, the Reset Routine is used during, and the Personal Scorecard is used after. When your child consistently implements these cyclical strategies, it results in an upward spiral in their mindset and performance.
There are also 7 Support Tools that help optimize the 4 Fundamentals. Integrating these tools into your child’s Prepare-Play-Reflect Process will help them overcome their biggest mental blocks.
The key to optimizing your child’s performance identity always comes back to consistently implementing and refining the 4 fundamentals.
This set of tools is key to building the right habits before and after games, as well as away from the arena or field. These habits not only include what to do, but what not to do. For example, frequently checking stats is a common habit athletes need to remove or limit.
These 5 Tools help your child manage daily stresses, create effective feedback mechanisms, and build an optimal environment to maximize their mental and physical preparedness for game day.
To support these tools, you also have the option to integrate the most current technologies for elite athletes (e.g., Whoop, Muse, HeartMath).
The final set of tools is the pinnacle of working on your child’s mindset. It helps them be the best leader they can be and positively influence others. These 3 Tools work together to optimize the ‘soft’ skills of leadership.
Most athletes will not start their programs working with these tools, but as they master their performance identity and elite habits, they naturally become better leaders and are primed to tap into these tools.
Implementing steps 1 and 2 can get your child results quickly, but if your child stops doing the work they will gradually stop getting the benefits.
Similar to how a brick house needs be maintained and modified – the mental game requires constant work and refinement. It never ends.
It is a constant process of self-awareness, self-discovery, and growth.
As time passes your child will need to evolve & upgrade their alter ego and reset routine.
Your child should also constantly tweak and tinker with their personalized scorecard, imagery scripts, and core priorities to match their ever changing landscape.
At CEP Mindset, we like to use our 5 Milestones to make the mental game more tangible and help keep your child committed to the constant upkeep and upgrades.
Every season your child starts from square one and has to put in the work to reach each milestone.
Note that the numbers above are generic and are altered depending on the sport. We use 95% plus in the zone to avoid the trap of perfection.

The rule of thumb is that our programs are NOT covered under most benefits because Dr. Cassidy Preston & the CEP team of coaches are not clinical therapists and are not licensed to diagnose or treat mental illness. They are coaches and consultants who help strengthen your child’s mindset, get them in the ZONE, and achieve Consistent Elite Performance.
