The Art and Science of Holistic Mental Performance

Laura M Wilde

NBA Holistic Peak Performance Coach | Speaker | Author |

Laura is a certified and degreed Holistic Healing Practitioner and a Certified Mental Performance Coach (CMPC) for Elite Performers. She offers consulting and training for teams, elite athletes, executives and pro coaches.

Her brand of mental performance is unique. She holds a background in doing intuitive readings and holistic healing, which is outside the typical clinical psychology background of most sport psychologists. 

Her intuitive work allows her to offer a unique perspective for her clients. As the only mental performance coach who is blending intuition, mind-body medicine and Consciousness studies with her peak performance work, she uses the title Holistic Mental Performance Coach.

What this means to athletes and teams is physical and mental resilience and a faster recovery from injuries. 

Before taking the role as Mental Performance Coach for the Los Angeles Clippers, Laura was running a full time holistic health practice as a medical intuitive practitioner, teaching classes on sustainable wellness and intuition, and helping clients with things like chronic illnesses, kidney stones, asthma, physical pain and injuries, depression, anxiety and migraines. 

Laura is a thought leader in the field of holistic player development. She created sports energy medicine after noticing that most sports medicine doctors treat physical symptoms, instead of the underlying. Through this modality she is able to help athletes miss less time on the field or court. It also helps athletes prevent injuries in the future.

Leading the way to bring Consciousness into Peak Performance for athletes, she believes the fastest way for a mental performance coach to up-level is to go within. Consciousness studies is vital in order for a performance coach to be able to lead others.

Laura is a co-founder of the Conscious Coaches' Collective - a group to bring together mental performance coaches so they have a voice as clinical psychology moves in to take space in the world of mental performance.

Her unprecedented accuracy with intuition and success rate with athletes, coaches and CEOs have earned her the trust and love of elite performers in sports and business, among them NBA and NFL Champions, WNBA Champions, business moguls, professional athletes, and countless other people from all walks of life who couldn’t find a way to heal or get out of the slump until they received her insights from spirit.

Laura works with elite NCAA and WNBA, NBA, NFL and MLB athletes, staff and coaches. She is also a partner with Turn2 Equity Partners.

As a holistic medicine practitioner, meditation coach, and an advanced and certified practitioner of Quantum Medicine, Laura teaches sports energy medicineand zone training. 

In 2012 she created Sports Energy Medicine and Holistic Player Development. These fields fill the gap between the quantum and western practices for athletes so that building the whole person becomes the key in player development.

This way, deep-level healing becomes the greater purpose for player development and sports medicine. She is also the author of these books: The Cosmic Athlete, Quantum Sports Medicine, Making the Team: 64 Ways to Succeed in School, Sports and Life and The Map of Your Future

Laura is a former NCAA two-sports college scholarship athlete and NCAA Head Coach. Her big addition to the field of sports performance is in the area of epigenetic. Through her studies with a molecular biologist, Coach Laura has learned that epigenetic's markers on the DNA code affect player performance. As a practitioner in this new field of epigenetic energy medicine and other holistic healing modalities, she can help identify and release these markers to improve health and performance for athletes. 


Wilde's education includes two Bachelor’s Degrees: English Literature and Holistic Health Sciences. She is currently working toward her PhD in Natural Medicine and concurrently on her Master's in Sport Psychology

Laura also holds certifications in Intuition Training, Zone Training, Sports Nutrition, Holistic Healing, Epigenetics Energy Medicine, Body Ecology, Neuroscience and Health Coaching. 

She is a former NCAA Grad Asst. Coach at Pepperdine University, an NCAA Head Basketball Coach at UC Santa Cruz and the University of Dallas, a former High School Coach at Malibu High School, and a former NCAA basketball and track standout and scholarship athlete. 

Her life’s purpose is to help athletes and others unleash their genius in a new and unique way and to teach ten million people to get into the zone.
