Maite Iriarte Rego, Mental Coach & Sports Psychologist

“My name is Maite Iriarte Rego and I’m very glad to be working with Clinic4Sport!

I was born in Madrid, and since I was a little girl, I remember being glued to the television watching the great duels of Roland Garros and Wimbledon. It did not matter how long the match lasted, my passion was never exhausted, and being able to feel the tension on court is something that still ignites my enthusiasm with no limits. It was in those days when I decided that in the future I would be part of the wonderful world of professional tennis and that exclusive scenario. Today I have seen my wish fulfilled, and I am fortunate to be able to combine passion and work in competitive tennis. I have been living in Berlin for more than twenty years, and when I am not working online with my coaches and players – for the purpose of improving their mental game – I am traveling around the world with my clients, getting to know new cultures and countries, feeling the same enthusiasm about high level competition as when I was a child.

Why are you so important to me?

Because I am passionate and admire your work: the challenge of training people and the task of letting the talent that a child carries inside grow, forge and develop. It fascinates me to see how a tennis player overcomes difficulties, overcomes themselves, matures, learns to solve problems while acquiring a tennis excellence that they can enjoy all their lives.

All this is even more exciting if, in addition, their commitment leads then to professional tennis; Also for the great personal and professional challenges that this entails. My mission is to support you in your work and be part of the team that will help your players to make the best of themselves so that they are winners in tennis and life. As Coaches and trainers we support others to overcome their barriers and to develop personally. To my understanding, this is one of the most exciting tasks. Because all changes and transformations, whether small or large, are only achieved if each of us changes and develops”

Why MENTAL TRAINING AND COACHING?

Any coach knows the following situation: his player has prepared properly to play the tournament, but his mind fails at key moments.
Pressure, fear, stress to competition lead to nervousness and lack of concentration. But it is precisely in these situations of stress and extreme difficulty, when the player has to give the best of himself, be strong mentally.

And this moment is crucial!

Only the one who is advised by a coach, mentor or trainer is successful in a discipline.
