supporting your child's growth

You're here because you love your child more than anything else, right? You want to see them succeed in life, avoid some nasty pitfalls and help them grow into an independent, loving, kind and responsible adult. Is that about right?

Hi, I'm Jussi a former pro snowboarder, author of Pro Mental Game, a mental coach and a father. I've helped athletes from 18 years of age to over 50 years old improve their performance, have more fun and grow. All the while avoiding unnecassary injuries.

"I was worried that my caution of crashing was passing on to my daughter. She struggles with the fear of failure and stress of competitions."

-Kai & Amy Casswell, snowboarders, United kingdom

The opportunity in failure

Nurturing a resilient attitude

Mistakes are opportunities in disguise. From face value they look worthless. But when you put in the work and flip your perspective by asking yourself "Why was it a good thing?" you will strike gold.

Failures, injuries they're feedback. They make you stop and think. It is the feedback that is the breakfast of champions that help you grow, improve and become more resilient.

That's what I'd like to teach your child. To turn adversities into opportunities.

"King is doing great, this summer was a big one for him to overcome fears. He did some things he thought he would never do in his life. We were just showing his buddy your book last month. Thanks for everything you do."

-King & Jennifer Eyben, Whistler Canada

Cultivating a growth mindset

accessing your child's full potential

Carol Dweck is Professor of Psychology at Stanford University who wrote a ground breaking book "Mindset" based on her extensive research with kids. In it she explains how to nurture a growth mindset for healthy development. Such that leads to success in all areas of life. With your permission I'd like to cultivate such traits in your child so they can be more successful in their sport, school and life.

In my practice, with your permission I'd like to teach these same methods to your child.
