Dr. Mark S Elliott

For the past 25 years, Dr Mark Elliott’s mental training expertise has been helping teams, individual athletes and coaches across the world, international, professional and elite amateur levels perform at their peak.

Mark is a Chartered Sport Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and a registered practitioner psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council. He is also an Associate Fellow of the BPS.

Mark runs a private practice, based in Northern Ireland, and has extensive experience helping elite athletes, players, and teams transform their performances and succeed at the highest level. His clients include European Tour golfers, international rugby players, Olympic and Paralympic athletes, professional footballers and clubs, boxers, pro-ice hockey teams, and senior county teams and individual competitors from Gaelic sports.

Many prominent sportspeople have publicly endorsed Mark’s work, including rugby giants Rory Best and Tommy Bowe, multiple handball world champion Paul Brady, five-time European Tour winner Michael Hoey, and boxing legend Carl Frampton. 

Through his Mental Monster Management system Mark has helped performers understand how their mind works and the ways in which they sabotage their own success. Importantly, he works with them to overcome these self-defeating habits and to compete at their very best time and again.

His book Facing Frankenstein provides the ambitious athlete with all they need to know and do to overcome their enemy-within – their mental monster. You can order the book here.
