Individual Performance Enhancement Sessions and

Mental Skills Training

 Individual  or one-on-one sessions are focused on getting to know the athlete or performer at a personal level, understanding the motivations behind participation, the pressures, their individual temperament, knowledge, experiences and attitudes about their sport. It is individualized to each athlete’s (or coaches’) abilties, experience and age; and geared at maximizing and enhancing performance by gaining insight into their “internal mental structures” (thoughts, feelings, patterns, reactions, beliefs), and learning and applying mental skills to enhance their focus and consistency, maximizing strengths, and helping them manage internal and external pressures and expectations.

Flexible/ Expandable Program 

This program allows athletes to develop their own individualized program based on their current needs, training and competitive schedules.Most athletes that choose these programs would like to have a longer-term on-going relationship with their sport psychologist addressing either performance or life issues, or a combination of both, and to do sessions at their own pace. It is also possible to have sessions scheduled at training sites, performance and competition venues, and travel for additional fees.

This program also allows athletes to pay per session as they work on their skills but it does not have any session pre-requisite or session limits. Athletes may choose to involve family, coaches, trainers, physical therapists, or team-mates if they desire.

Individualized Performance Profiles ($600.00)

These individualized profiles are achieved through the administration of sport specific assessments of mental skills and motivation that will allow us to learn about your strengths and weaknesses in the mental realm as an athlete.  We will give you specific feedback and recommendations about how to turn your weaknesses into strengths and your strengths into diamonds! We will assess, give you feedback and suggestions on you motivational style, your ideal pre-performance states, your concentration abilities, how you take feedback from coaches, and how your self-talk impacts your performance in competitions and games. This is a worthwhile investment for serious, elite or professional athletes, performers or individuals who want to delve deeply to uncover their maximum potential!

Remember that your investing in your mental skills is equally important to investing in your physical training and coaching; and at the highest levels, athletes that have a distinct performance advantage attribute it to their mental skills rather than their physical training. If you want to be the best that you can be- then this training is for you!
