My name is Guylaine Girard, and I believe that sport is an extraordinary tool for developing human potential. I have coached athletes for 25 years, mainly in ultimate and gymnastics, and I was the head coach of the AUDL’s Montreal Royal in 2016. I hold a bachelor’s degree in high-level coaching, a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) Certification, as well as a Level 4 (international level) NCCP certification, and I am passionate about mental training and human development. As a mental coach, I worked with Team Canada’s U24 Women, Iris, the Montreal Royal, and Vintage in 2019. In my work, my real passion is making people aware of what prevents them from achieving their goals and giving them practical and effective tools to access and reveal their full potential.

I just wanted to share with you something I’m proud of. I was able to do my pregame visualization DURING my warm-up! It was the first time I was able to do it, and the result was that automatically, I entered the zone! It was pretty crazy as a feeling, like a switch that I could turn ON in a few seconds. I was also able to visualize my performance against the opposing team. It’s thanks to you that I had the tools to do this. Thank you so much!"

“The mental preparation sessions with Guylaine taught me to recognize when my mind had a negative impact on my performance. I discovered new ways of thinking that helped me stay focused and give 100% during my AUDL games. I still use her tips anytime I need to regain my focus when facing challenges.”

“When I started my ultimate season, I knew I was physically ready. Despite everything, I was not performing to my full potential. Guylaine knew how to get me out of my comfort zone and helped me better understand how my body reacted at important moments. I now feel accomplished thanks to Guylaine’s exercises and tips!”
