Township of Langley, BC, Wednesday, August 24, 2011: The Langley Rivermen are pleased to announce Sean Heales as the Mental Performance Coach for the team this upcoming season. Sean graduated with a BA from Simon Fraser University majoring in both English and Psychology. He then went on to graduate from the Adler School of Psychology with a Masters degree in Clinical Counseling. Along with coaching at the Initiation Level in the Langley Minor Hockey Association, Sean has his own private practice (Logan Creek Counseling & Consulting) and is currently a Registered Clinical Counselor accredited by the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapists Association (CCPA) and the BC Association of Clinical Counselors (BCACC).
“We are excited to bring in Sean as the Mental Performance Coach as he brings in not only outstanding credentials, but a hockey background as well," said Head Coach and General Manager Steve O’Rourke, “the mental side of hockey is so crucial for success not only for the individual player, but overall team success and we believe Sean can help with that side of the game with our team moving forward”.
Sean has worked with players of all levels ranging from local minor hockey, WHL, NHL prospects, and ex-European players. The Rivermen players will get help in various areas including overcoming issues such as performance pressure, goal-setting, overcoming injury, as well as life issues.
