Who am I?

My name is Jan Philippi, originally from Freiburg, Germany. Nowadays I live in Vienna, Austria, amongst many of the top poker pros in the world.

I have played poker profesionally from 2006-2016 and now am a Psychologist, Mindfulness Teacher, Positive Psychology Trainer and Psychotherapist in Training. I also regularly produce videos for the PLO Mastermind, the leading coaching site for Pot Limit Omaha. So I bring a unique skillset, that will help you improve not only your poker mental game but all aspects of your life.

The topics I coach today are things, that I personally struggled with a lot. During my early days as a poker player I was living the typical nerd-lifestyle with a unhealthy diet, nearly no physical acitivity and a very limited social life. I was unorganized, unhealthy, introverted and unhappy.

Through my own experience with coaching, therapy and self-development I went through the exact change, that I now help my clients to achieve.

I know exactly how my clients feel when they first start out. How hard change can be in the beginning and how frustrating it is to unsuccessfully try again and again to change bad habits.

With my experience and my help you don´t need to take the hard route. I will help you to creat that healthy, successful, balanced lifestyle, that we all want.

Client Testimonials

"Working with Jan has been fantastic for my life. I have noticed a massive improvement in so many different areas and I am very thankful for this. I don´t know where I would be without his coaching. There is no price-tag you can put on investing in yourself and in improving your quality of life!"

Steve MacPherson, Aspiring Pro

We´re happy to have Jan as part of our team. His Mental Game videos have been a valuable and unique addition to our content. He really understands the struggles and goals of poker players and provides not only evidence based theory but most importantly practical solutions. I think every (aspiring) poker pro needs a coach like Jan."

"Working with Jan was an investment for life. Its important to know, there is no such thing as a magic bullet that solves everything at once. But with the right tools and a strong commitment you can achieve a lot in life. And that is my main take-away from the coaching sessions. 100% recommended"

Before you book the free call, please ask yourself and answer honestly

Are you willing to change?
Is not changing more painful than overcoming your mental blockades and fears?
Are you ready to spend time, money and energy on the coaching?
Are you expecting me to solve your problems without putting in a lot of work?
I will do everything I can to help you find your motivation and to do the exercises, but in the end you´re the one who has to put in the effort.

The coaching is not about dealing with tilt a little better, it is about improving your whole life permanently.
