WILLIAM GAVARKOVS

“Sports Psychologist Mahsa Durbano has had a huge positive influence with regards to both my golf game and my life in general since I started my sessions with her. She is very knowledgeable in her field of expertise and can relate it to exactly what your personal needs are. Her personal touch and friendly personality makes her really easy to talk to her. During my sessions over the off season we discussed everything from my short game to my parents. Mahsa has helped me to trust myself and trust my golf game giving me new sense of confidence in my day to day life. I have come leaps and bounds in the short time I have been seeing Mahsa and would therefore highly recommend working with her.”

“The mental side of performance is key to achieving optimal results. Especially within a sport where consistency is what separates the champions from the rest. It’s why one player can dominate one night and be the worst player on the ice the next night. Talent is abundant but the greatest league in the world is full of talented players who are able to think the game at a high level and perform with consistency. As the pace of the game picks up and the plays become sharper, so does their focus. To become elite means to prepare like an elite professional. And those are definitely the key points that we adopted and experienced through our work with Mahsa S Durbano”

“Mahsa Durbano has helped me greatly with my overall performance on the golf course but I believe more importantly how I live everyday. I have a better understanding of my tendencies under pressure situations and how to properly cope to maximize performance. I have definitely increased my self belief as an athlete with the help from Mahsa.”

 

DR. DEBBIE CREWS
Professor of Sport Psychology ASU

“As a person Mahsa is independent, resourceful, intelligent, conscientious, caring and a joy to work with. Her knowledge and expertise in the area of psychology and sport is extensive. She has an appreciation for research as well as the applied side of sport psychology. Her clinical background contributes to helping athletes at every level. If Mahsa resided in Phoenix I would not hesitate to hire her to work in my sport psychology programs. I consider her to be a friend and a colleague.”

 

NICK TRICHILO
Coach, Humber Hawks

“Mahsa’s presence as a Sport Psychologist has introduced a new wave of understanding! As she has strived to provide all athletes with the opportunity to recognize that they can perform and live to the full of their personal potentials despite all the challenges they may face; and regain the recognition that their idols, who are successful at facing their obstacles, setbacks, doubts and uncertainties were also capable of maintaining a sense of purpose, dedication and passion in the pursuit of their goals.”

 

ALISTAR HARLAND

“The psychological side of sports can be very overwhelming at any level and any age. As a 12 year old its hard to master great focus when juggling school and sports while working hard to achieve new goals and stay competitive while still driven to want more and continue developing your true love and passion. We are so lucky to have found Mahsa and Limitless Performance to help Evan really achieve that much needed focus and guidance to help him achieve his dreams and life goals. Thank you Mahsa.”

Humber Hawks

“I met Masha at the beginning of my final season playing for the Humber College Hawks. She began working with the team and each individual throughout the season. While it was something new to have someone working with me on the mental side of the game, it was something that was definitely worth the time and effort. She helped me in my way of thinking, how to act and react in certain situations, and ultimately allowed me to reach my best. I had my best season as a Hawk and that is something I can directly relate to her coming on board with the team. She is a very knowledgeable individual who had the ability to read and relate to each team member and tailor to their specific needs. She was an asset to have around for the season and although my time at Humber has come and gone I look forward to continuing to work with her on my pursuit of my golfing career.”

Club Captain, Weston Golf & CC 2017

“I was struggling with taking my “range swing” onto the course. Mahsa has shown me how the mental side of golf is critical to reaching my potential on the course and introduced me to several techniques that facilitate reaching this objective. My average score has dropped more than 5 strokes since I started working with her and I know there’s more strokes to be shed using the tools and techniques Mahsa has taught me.”

“There is a difference between being educated and being inspired. The secret of an athlete’s growth and, more in general of people’s growth is in the second one. Mahsa Durbano chooses to inspire. She transforms an audience into active participants and a lesson into an experience. After you leave her class you don’t just have a list of precious notions and very efficient mental techniques in your “toolbox”. You are inspired to leap forward and reach out to your dreams”

 

PAUL WILDRIDGE
Weston Golf and Country Club

“I have had the pleasure of working with Mahsa Durbano for the past 15 months. My interest was initially in sports psychology training as it related to my golf game. It has developed into a combination of sport training and executive coaching. Mahsa has helped me regain my interest and enjoyment in competitive golf and assisted in my performance in that regard as well. I have developed a solid game plan and an on course routine that has made me more consistent and confident on the course whether playing competitively or for fun. My executive coaching became important when I faced a number of key decisions regarding my business. Mahsa helped me gain the perspective necessary and the ability to deal with the stress that I was experiencing. I would highly recommend her teaching and training to anyone who is looking to enjoy their golf more and help in stressful situations.”

 

CHRIS IRWIN

“For someone wanting to improve their golf game, there are many facets available. Mahsa is skilled at understanding where the mental side of the game can integrate with and support other areas of development. Her insight and advice help steer thinking toward productive areas and away from the non-productive ones. I would recommend involving her in any effort to increase golf performance.”

 

MIKE CRAPPER
Humber Hawks

“In the short time Mahsa and I worked together she made a significant contribution to my golf game that I had been struggling with for years. She quickly helped me identified flaws in my mental game and working extensively with me to help correct them. Results were almost immediate and couldn’t have asked for a more personable, hard working and knowledgeable professional to work with. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to improve both their mental and physical parts of their game.”

 

DAVID McISSAC
Weston Golf and Country Club

“Over the past several years I have invested a lot of time, money and effort in improving my game. While lessons have absolutely helped, I continued to struggle with on-course challenges and non-golf stresses that impacted my golf game, mindset and perspective. Mahsa, through her performance and golf coaching, has helped me to refocus my game and outlook. This has benefited not only my golf performance, but my mindfulness at work and home as well. In the end, the proof is in the results and I credit Masha and her mental game coaching for helping me win a few big events this year. Whether looking to improve your game or get to the next level, I highly recommend Mahsa as someone who can help you reach your goals.”
