Performance Psychology

Performance psychology assists people to develop the mental skills required to manage high intensity situations and enhance their functioning in demanding environments. This form of therapy is especially helpful for people who are subject to workplace and academic pressures, in addition to those working within competitive environments, such as sport, performing arts, and the military.

Sessions focus on improving self-awareness in ways that boost motivation and increase confidence. This includes learning from setbacks, recognising personal strengths, and clarifying goals. Clients are also guided to master practical techniques that will assist them to stay cool under pressure and maximise their performance.

Performance psychology can help to:

  • Increase motivation and confidence
  • Enhance job satisfaction
  • Develop resilience to stress
  • Improve productivity and professional effectiveness
  • Overcome challenges and thrive under pressure
