"As the Head Coach of Western Suburbs A Grade team in Mackay in 2014-16, I recognised a need to ensure not only the mental health of our club and team, but we identified a real lack of ability to maintain positive thinking in stressful situations. After discussions with Drs John and Elizabeth McIntosh, they designed a TUFMINDS program specifically for us as a sporting body. We were looking at the processes we had as a team and as individuals to handle adversity. John and Elizabeth made the process fun and interesting, but above all, they helped us all as individuals to harness the power of positive thinking and removing NITs from our team environment. This then reflected on the team and our future achievements; with our teams struggling to take the final step in the season, to making grand finals in every year since our club participated in the TUFMINDS training sessions. Drs John and Elizabeth are outstanding communicators, and they can read a room to get the best out of every person participating. The feedback from the entire group was one of gratitude for the training, as this not only helped us a team find success, but it improved us all as individuals in our personal life."

"TUFMINDS stress program has helped me enormously with managing my stress and creating a positive outlook on life, instead of focussing on the negatives. I am now able to remain calm and respond positively in difficult situations even when my children are being difficult! They then respond so much better and things are sorted out much more easily. The relaxation techniques worked wonderfully for my stress and insomnia too!"
