The Summit Center for Ideal Performance

The mind is an amazing place to live. We invite you to enter our website and explore the potential of your MIND POWER!

Dr. Christine M. Silverstein is the director of The Summit Center for Ideal Performance, conveniently located in Northern New Jersey, about 20 miles west of New York City. She is a performance coach, certified hypnosis counselor, registered nurse, and health educator. For the past 22 years, she has assisted countless children, adolescents, and adults to achieve their optimum performances in academics, business, sports, performing arts, fertility enhancement, and health.

What makes the programs provided by the Summit Center so successful and different from those offered by other coaches and health care professionals?

  • A performance model that Olympic champions use, and you can learn too
  • Designed to meet your individual needs
  • Portable skills that you can use to deal with everyday life situations during and after after the program is completed

The Performance Model™ used at The Summit Center is based on William Shakespeare’s observation that all the world is a stage and that we are all actors and actresses. This concept applies not only on the stage or on the athletic field, but for fertility and health issues, in the operating room, on the job, in relationships, in school, and everywhere else. This easy-to-use portable model allows you to deal successfully with any challenges that you are facing. You will develop the skills to use the extraordinary power of your mind to reach your full potential.

An example of an innovative program utilizing these concepts is Winning Ways For Wrestlers that meets the special needs of amateur wrestlers at all levels. A feature article describing this dynamic program appeared in the Newark Star-Ledger.

Another important program using the Performance Model is Metamorphosis: Fertility Enhancement Coaching™  that is designed to assist women to overcome the anxiety that often provides challenges to becoming pregnant.

To learn more about how this model can be applied in other life situations, please explore the pages on this website.

The mind holds great power, and change can be easy. Dr. Silverstein at The Summit Center for Ideal Performance can teach you the tools you need to realize this power to achieve success and reach your peak.
