Hi Ryan,

Try this simple idea.  Just turn your stance a little to face more to the right.  YOu only need to change this by a few degrees so that your right foot is slightly further from the table than your left.  Then move a little to your left so that your bat is on the middle line of the table.  In this position you will be more likely to be in a position to hit your forehand.

Also during training, set yourself a task of on;y playing forehands when the ball is in the forehand side of the middle line.

It is just about doing it more often and getting used to playing the strokes.
