As a Toronto-based Sport Psychology & Performance Consultant, Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist, and Certified Sports Vision Trainer, Shapiro has become the first female Mental Performance Coach for the Arizona Coyotes in the NHL, as well as the OHL for the Peteborough Petes. More recently, she has signed on as the Mental Performance Coach for both the Mens and Women’s Chinese National hockey teams for the Beijing Olympics in 2022.

With an exceptional ability to teach, motivate, inspire, and connect with all those she works with, Brenley has dedicated her life’s work to helping people push the boundaries of achievement and facilitate a pathway towards success. Her transformative program and style, along with her vast degree of knowledge and training spanning every aspect of the mental game is what separates her from the rest. Provoking excitement, engagement, and the transformation of the power of the mind, Brenley is able to foster a true culture of excellence within those she works with.


Brenley’s expertise and Sports Psychology program helps athletes push their game to the next level and maximize their development potential. Her dynamic style and commitment to the players and teams she works with is second to none. I highly recommend Brenley Shapiro and the Heads Up team and programming. She's the best in the business.

Brenley and her team were an outstanding addition to the OHL Combine. The insight they were able to provide to the athletes, general managers, and scouts will assist in the future development of players within Ontario. Both the Mental Game Coaching and Sports vision training programs are cutting edge and the OHL was very excited to implement it into our program.

OHL Senior Director of Player Development
I think the mental performance program I did with Brenley was so important because it is such a big part of success in the game. So much of how you think and react to things like mistakes, coaches yelling, and guys getting in your head, come from your mental toughness. Brenley has taught me to have the right mindset and learn how to react and respond in a more powerful way . She also helped our team with setting goals, monitoring our progress, and team cohesion. It brought us all closer together and helped us to be a strong group. Brenley is very easy to talk to and was always thee when you needed her. She has helped me to stay focused on my main goal of getting to the NHL with a strong mind and clear focus.

Brenley has helped me improved my overall personal performance and our team performance with some mental toughness training. Her tips and tricks help me stay focused during a game and not let anything get to me. It has really helped our team up our game and I would recommend her to anyone looking to get an edge over their competition in ANY sport! Thank you so much Brenley!

I used Brenley's service's this hockey season with my Minor Bantam Vaughan Kings AAA Hockey team. She is phenomenal. There is so much value that Brenley brings to a team when speaking about mental prep, team building exercises, learning about player personalities, dealing with stress and anxiety in hockey and also for parents and how to deal with a child in high level sports. I would recommend every team use Brenley. It certainly helped my team maintain a great dressing room.

Brenley, I just wanted to thank you once again for your assistance. It's invaluable - From the team building, overcoming mistakes, confidence, team commandments, visualization, etc..., you have given us the mental tools we need to go the extra distance. As a coach, some of these things we were doing, but in bits and pieces, with no structure. Your ability to package it all up and clarify the mind game for us was exactly what we needed. Thanks so much!!!
