Richard De Souza
Richard De Souza – my brother – is one of the best mental coaches around. Presently, he has recently helped Jonnny Marray who is the first British Doubles Wimbledon Champion in 76 years to achieve his potential. He has also worked with other British tennis players and has helped Anne Keothavong to reach a career high ranking of 48, James Auckland and Jamie Delgado.
Richard believes that we all have a gift and our challenge is to express it as fully as possible… He is a GP and 10 years ago felt that the nature of general practice meant that too many patients were seen in too short a space of time, and so the source of problems were not properly dealt with. This created a frustration in him, which led to him seeking a more holistic way. He researched techniques such as Emotional Freedom Technique, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and other alternative therapies, which allowed him to develop his own method. His method can be used by anyone to achieve their potential.
There is a fantastic piece in the Telegraph which credits Richard with assisting Jonny Murray winning his first Grand Slam
