Why did you create C4Success?

C4Success is an online, multimedia program designed to grow and strengthen your mental skills over time. It was originally developed by Lee Christopher and Susan Cockle, an athletics coach and registered psychologist, who saw the program as a supplemental tool that could reinforce the sport psychology work they were already doing with their high performance athletes. They soon realized that C4Success could prove useful beyond the clients and athletes they were working with, and set about expanding it so it might serve other athletes, students, professionals, young people, and anyone else interested in a dynamic and engaging method to decrease their anxiety, grow their mental skills and achieve peak performance.

There are a number of barriers that typically come into play in developing mental skills. These barriers include constraints on time, proximity to a qualified service provider and cost. C4Success’s partners wanted to create a system that allowed people to practice their mental skills in an affordable manner, anytime, anywhere in the world, whenever they have access to a computer.

So whether your goal is medaling at the Olympics, doing well on a diploma exam, getting a good nights sleep or just trying to be on top of your mental game, C4Success can help you get there.

What is it?

C4Success creates step-by-step, dynamic, online programs utilizing podcasts, videos, articles, self-assessment tools and cue cards to build your mental skills, at a time that’s convenient for you. Whether you’re training for the Olympics or want to excel in business, school or everyday life, C4Success offers tools and techniques to alleviate stress, increase focus, manage energy, boost confidence, deal with self-talk, develop resiliency, deal with insomnia and anxiety, while maximizing your performance. 

How does it work?

C4Success works in both the short and long term: whether you need to relax immediately—maybe you’ve got a big exam or a race in the morning and can’t sleep—or you want to reduce your overall stress over time. Use one of many relaxation podcasts for help right now, while the other online resources train your brain to react differently in the future.

Stick with the program and C4Success will help you improve your psychological skills and become the best you can be.

Is this a substitute for working with my mental performance consultant or psychologist?

Nothing can take the place of your one-on-one work and the relationship you develop with your sport psychology professional.  C4Success is designed to use on its own as a self-directed method of training mental skills, or can support and compliment your work with a sport psychology service provider.  For less than the price of a single visit to a psychologist, C4Success offers multiple online tools that can be utilized in private to build your confidence, strengthen your mental game, and help you perform at your best. 

Will it work for me?

Mental skills training is giving an advantage to athletes at the collegiate, Olympic and professional levels—many of your favourite athletes are using sport psychology techniques to master their thinking, decrease anxiety and maximize their performance. Psychological training is useful for any kind of high achiever—or anyone who wants to achieve more—whether in sport, the classroom, the office or life in general. C4Success was developed by registered psychologists, Susan Cockle and Nicolas Allen, to have universal application: utilize these tools consistently and decrease your anxiety and maximize your performance over time.

What does signing up for a program get me?

Signing up for the course gives you the training program for life.  Yes, you own the program outright and can use it whenever you need to.  So whether you want to use the programs in a step-by-step fashion following each module throughout the course, or jump into whichever module is most applicable for you at the time, go ahead, you decide.  You will have C4Success at your fingertips to develop your mental game whenever you need it.

How often would I need to practice?

It depends what you’re using it for: if you’ve got a one-time, high-pressure event that you’re preparing for—like an interview, an exam or a big track meet—you might use it everyday in the month leading up to the event to help you relax and stay focused.

If you want to grow skills over time, we’d recommend the “Three L” method: a little amount, a lot of repetition, over a longer period of time. Something like a half an hour, once a week for a year ought to do it. 

What is the best way to use C4Success?

The best way is to experiment in order to find whatever works for you.  Once you’re familiar with the content, remember your favourites and you can refer back to the tools and modules that work for you. Remember: repetition is key for more significant change to take place.

How old do you have to be to benefit from C4Success?

This program was designed for youth, adolescents and adults to use, however we know of many parents who have even used the program with their children 7 or 8 years of age, to great effect, especially the audio portions as a sleep aid or to build confidence.  As long as the parent navigates the site on behalf of their child, it can be a helpful tool for younger children. The whole family can use C4Success all for the same fee!
