Mastering the mental game

You devote hours and hours to training your body, but how much to you spend training your mind?

More and more, athletes and sports teams are turning to sports psychology and performance coaching to improve their mental game and give them the edge in training and competition.

In performance coaching we work on the mental processes that will enhance your athletic performance - both to attain peak performance in the moment, and to achieve and sustain high performance over the long-term.

Some of the areas that we can work on together are:

  • Goal setting: helping you decide want you want to achieve, setting realistic goals, and working together through each step that you can take to achieve them.

  • Visualisation: creating vivid mental imagery of your goals, working on mental rehearsal, race strategy, and planning “in-game” thinking.

  • Getting into the zone: finding your state of flow - your individual zone of optimal performance.

  • Concentration: developing the right level of self-awareness and learning how to regulate your focus in training and competition.

  • Self talk: working on stopping any negative thoughts and focusing on a positive state of mind to keep you on track before, during and after your competition.
