Below are some public comments from Dr. Murray's clients and workshop participants:


 

"I just thought I would give you an email to inform you that I have just played my first Veterans tournament (Suffolk Open) since your workshop and won the tournament today! A positive mindset was definitely the difference. I beat three players rated higher than me and I felt so less negative and more aggressive with my play. One even noticed the positive attitude since the last time we played. Many thanks for your help it certainly made a difference. Again, many thanks and Regards." Chris

"Dr. Murray is an excellent psychologist and I look forward to doing more workshops with him!" Uri Geller

"I had no idea how much I learnt that day! I just followed your instructions about not analyzing everything, being positive and just enjoying myself out there and IT DID WORK! This time I concentrated on my performance not winning. Im not worried anymore. I know what to do now! Thank you again! You're my hero.
 
 Sylvia

"Your presentation was very comprehensive and pitched at the right level. The 1on 1 feedback was very useful. Your comments on my problem definition/identification was most illuminating. You had a great balance of sport and psychology skills - for sure this gives you a great mix for your chosen profession. Bottom line is that I was very much looking forward to the session and definitely got some good value out of it.  I'm looking forward to giving the email thing a try and afterwards we can discuss the best way forward."  Christopher 

"I would like to say that I thoroughly enjoyed my day with you. I found it of great use and am finding myself enjoying playing tennis a great deal more. When I now play I find myself in a much more relaxed state of mind and tend to focus on my own performance rather than on winning. There were several highlights for me, one being the chance to have a hit with Eric. I found the mix of classroom/ playing a good way of keeping attention on the subject matter. If there were any lowlights I cannot remember them. Once again thanks for a great day and look forward to reading my evaluation."  Tony

"Lewis was very interested in your feedback and I am sure as he was reading it by the look on his face and the comments he was making like how would john know that that he was very impressed. He really enjoyed the day and we now know what is happening and can work on this for the future. I have read some of the book and was very impressed with how it can help even in every day life.  I had never been interested previously, but found the book very easy to read and digest. We will be sitting down whilst he is on his 6 week break from school and completing the questionnaire, Do you have an electronic version of the questionnaire, to save me time in typing the questions out, so that we can revisit it at a later date. Thank you once again"  Justine

"At last I found some time to thank you for a great session last Friday in Sutton Junior Tennis Centre.  I had no idea how much I learnt that day! Just the day after meeting you I had a match with a player who hasn't got any technique but wins her matches just by waiting for your mistakes. Usually it takes about 3HR to play a match against her-she gets everything back! I just followed your instructions about not analyzing everything, being positive and just enjoying myself out there. IT DID WORK! After just 1HR 15min I won 6-3,6-2.I realised it wasn't as difficult as in the past. This time I concentrated on my performance not winning. I know there will be hard matches coming my way.But I'm not worried anymore.I know what to do now! Thank you again! You're my hero now."  Lots of love, Sylvia

"I very much enjoyed the session in London with you! Am already benefiting from much of what you have said and written. I need to learn (or practice) replacing negative thoughts with positive ones. Am focusing now on performance rather than outcome and this is the most significant step forward Ive made recently. Id be interested to hear about the evaluation and what areas need most attention. Cheers for now hope you had a good trip back!"  Patrick
