Some Testimonies about Sport Mental Coaching
(Professional Hockey Player @ Columbus Blue Jackets, NHL)
Thanks to him I learned mental strength, how to move forward, learning to maintain that concentration and constancy that allowed me to realize my greatest dream: to play in the National Hockey League; so I can safely say that he is an excellent mental coach and that I absolutely recommend him.
(Professional Football Player @ Celta Vigo B)
I felt great affinity with Fausto. With him I got my career back on track and it is still going very well. Obviously it is always you that has to take action, nobody does magic, but it is with Fausto that I found inside of me that which for a few years had remained hidden.
(K1 & Muaythai Pro Fighter)
I met Fausto in a difficult time. I did not know the world of mental coaching, but he gave me confidence from the first meeting and I immediately trusted his methods. He taught me techniques and strategies to reach maximum concentration so as to get back into the ring with the calm and determination that I thought I could never find again. A person I respect very much.
For me mental coaching is a fundamental element of sport, as for me the head helps perhaps even more than physique, and therefore a good physical and mental preparation is necessary. I feel comfortable with Fausto because he has a great sensitivity for understanding the "problems" that concern me and together we are then able to find a solution, with excellent results.
(Professional Football Player @ FC Lugano)
Mental coaching is an experience for improving yourself without setting any limits, but to do so it is essential to find the right person to work with. A person with whom you are not afraid to show your weaknesses, so that you can always challenge yourself and improve. Personally, I'm sure I found the right person in Fausto.
(Professional Volleyball Player @ Vandœuvre Nancy Volley-Ball)
I definitely saw a difference in my game the sessions with Fausto. He helped me to find the necessary serenity thanks also to the breathing exercises that were very useful, such that I consider myself satisfied with the sessions, believing Fausto to be effective in his work.
(Head Coach @ Lausanne Hockey Club)
Fausto has a profound ability to read and understand people and a strong desire to be able to help them concretely. He doesn't tell you how you should feel or how to deal with it, it is up to you to reflect deeply, confident that he will take you exactly where you need to go, because the problem is within you and it is up to you to solve it. Thanks Fausto!
(MTB Cross-country Cycling Elite)
In my sports career I never found myself in particular moments of crisis so much as to feel the need for a mental coach. I met Fausto more out of curiosity than out of necessity and yet, immediately, I realized that my degree of determination and concentration had a great margin for improvement and the competitive results were not long in coming.
(Juniors Swiss National Triathlete)
"Mental training" may not seem so important but, to be able to give your best, the help of a mental coach can make all the difference. I have learned, and am still learning, to better manage emotions before, during and after a competition. To be able to concentrate better and many other things that allow me to come to the competition more ready than I was before I met Fausto.
(Elit Hockey Player @ U20-Elit Hockey Club Lugano)
Fausto accompanied me in both my sporting and educational development. Since I started working with him, I have learned to believe in myself, improving in various areas: hockey, personal and professional. Now I'm the player I always believed I was, with an important responsibility in the team. The work we have done and that we are still doing has improved everything in my life.
(Professional Football Player @ FC Sion)
I will always be grateful to him for the work he has done so far and that which he will do in the future.
Fausto has become a friend to me, someone truly reliable, who is always there, who can quickly understand the situation in which one finds oneself and identify the right countermeasures and solutions; and for a sportsman this is really essential.
(Professional Football Coach Licenza B UEFA)
His collective intervention immediately brought great benefits to the group, which were then evident on the field in terms of the result. I can therefore confirm that I have had great positive feedback from my players as his simple but highly effective approach has been able to 100% rekindle the flame in each and every one of them. Thanks Fausto!
(Professional Hockey Player @ HC Davos)
I met Fausto during the 2013/2014 season. At each meeting I learned different techniques to develop my concentration and race management. That was my best season, with 20 points scored on the ice and even my first call-up to the senior national team for a tournament.
(Professional Volleyball Player @ Volley Lugano)
I got on really well with Fausto because he was always able to put me at ease and allow me to be myself in all respects. Collaborating with him allowed me to rediscover one of my most important aspects as a player that unfortunately I was about to lose, thus regaining confidence in myself and in my skills. I am grateful for his helpfulness and collaboration.
(Ex Head of Sports & Competition @ HC Lugano)
The goals set for the season were ambitious and not easy on paper, nevertheless they were achieved, getting our players to focus more and be more competitive. I can say, that Mr. Fausto Donadelli is a person investing himself a lot, without counting hours into his duties, and we can highly recommend his skills as a mental and/or motivation coach.

(International Water Polo Referee)
Thank you Fausto for your professionalism and your sensitivity, which allow you to read the soul of every single person, treating in the same way both the sportsman who earns millions and the boy who "steals" time for his sport from his free time, from school, from entertainment or from a night's sleep. I beg you never to change!
(Professional Volleyball Player @ Ardens Comiso)
An individual of the highest level, a professional in everything he does, friendly and always kind. My time with him made me change a lot in a positive way and I don't only mean in terms of volleyball but also on a human level. I can safely say that I realized that thanks to him something changed.
(IElite Football Player @ FC Lugano U21)
For me Fausto is a friend, one of the real ones to whom you can tell everything. "Thank you" instead is something that I will never stop telling him, because with a simple lunch or coffee (he is not one who likes to be conventional); and the "right words" always manages to make me discover the resources I have (whether sporting or personal) and, above all, to demonstrate it in performance!
