John MacDiarmid

John MacDiarmid has been working with elite athletes for more than 15 years and understands the complex interplay between athlete’s mind and body. After a long career as a sports massage therapist working with some of the most successful sporting teams, John developed a keen interest in not only helping athletes improve their body, but also improve their mind to increase athletic and sports performance.

This has proven to be effective and successful for many people in Australia. In 2012, John gained qualifications as a Clinical Hypnotherapist and NLP Practitioner. In early 2013 he qualified as a Master Hypnotherapist and NLP Master Practitioner through The Mind Academy at Noosa.

John has worked with teams such as:

– New Zealand All Blacks
