River Edge, NJ (PRWEB) October 15, 2008
An Olympic Gold Medalist and a group of twenty four Olympic coaches and sports doctors from Japan are coming to New Jersey to learn about the mental aspects of competing in top level sports. This group of elite athletes, coaches and health care providers will be trained by Dr. Granat, a Psychotherapist, author and Founder of http://www.stayinthezone.com.
Granat will lead a seminar on November 10, 2008 at his offices in River Edge, New Jersey.
"Apparently, the Japanese competitors want to learn more about my approaches to getting athletes to perform to their fullest potential. I am very flattered that they have asked for my help. I am looking forward to teaching them how to get into the zone and stay in the zone," says Dr. Granat.
"With the help of an interpreter, I plan to demonstrate counseling techniques, hypnotic techhniques, visualization for athletes and motivational methods which I have been using with top performers for many years."
"I love working with competitors from different sports. They all come to see me to find out how they can get into the zone. In the process, they teach me a lot about themselves and their sports. In a typical week, I might counsel a tennis player, a golf pro, a baseball pitcher, a hockey goalie and a wrestler. I have even gotten calls from rodeo cowboys," remarks Granat.
Dr. Granat, a former university professor, has appeared in The New York Times, Good Morning America, AP, ESPN, Golf Digest, The BBC and The CBC. His recent books include Zone Tennis and Get Into The Zone In Just One Minute.
He is also the author of How To Get Into The Zone With Sport Psychology And Self-Hypnosis, Zone Tennis, How To Lower Your Golf Score With Sport Psychology And Self-Hypnosis, 101 Ways To Break Out Of A Hitting Slump, Get Into The Zone In Just One Minute and Bed Time Stories For Young Athletes.

Golf Digest called Granat one of America's Top Ten Mental Gurus. He was recently featured in a documentary film on long distance running. Dr. Granat also writes a weekly self-help column for three newspapers. Dr. Granat welcomes questions from athletes, parents, coaches and corporations.
