    Funny you should say that, I lost 2 black ball frames this week and it wasn't until it got down to that stage that I suddenly got super tense, twitched on shots and had no confidence at all that I was going to win them, up til those momments I was fully focussed and full of self belief...

    I lost about 7 matches last season on black balls and I know full well that played a huge part in what happened to me this week, fully twitched on a pink to win one match, missed the cut back by a good foot! and then with the pink over the bag and the black not to far away ( a shot that required a simple tap in on the pink to leave a pretty simple cut to the other middle pocket on the black.) in the other I had absolutely no confidence what so ever that I could play that shot without missing the pink so played something else (not sure what as I just remember telling myself to just make sure of potting the pink.) and was left with a long straight black into the yellow pocket which I duly missed by a mile....

    Really need some therapy to change that!

    Therapy can be a bit of a scary word that without understanding what its about can worry a lot of people, its an easier phrase to use as people relate to looking at problems as therapy. although ive used it i acctualy like to take all of that stuff away and describe it to start with as a relaxed chat about whats going on. basicly the way that i have changed things to fit in with the sport is really that we just talk about what is going on and then talk about ways to help. by the end of a first meeting players find that there confidence is raised and that they have gained something from it. Ive seen another post about someone using a CD that they have to listen to over a period of time, these CD's are good but it can take longer to gain any thing out of them

    Same goes for me , i,ve lost some real tight finishes to excellent players and looking back and reflecting on them i believe it was me who lost them rather than my opponents play winning them .

    I am conscious of that feeling now and try and gee muself up rather than bottling it so to speak .

    I,m a great believer that the frame of mind your in has a great bearing on your performances .

    This is a long shot, but I have been trying to find that recording for a while now. I bought it on cassette in 1997. I would be willing to paypal you a few quid for an mp3.

    It is a recording by Paul McKenna called sensational snooker. I used it about 20 years ago on cassette, and it actually did wonders for me. I can't find it anywhere, and I would love to get my hands on it again. I tried contacting McKenna but they didn't reply.
