Mental Performance Coaching

for those looking to build resilience, improve focus, and develop healthy confidence in sports, performance domains, and every-day life​

Sport & Performance Psychology

Think of sport and performance psychology like going to the gym for your mind. Just like your body needs physical and skill-focused training, your mind needs training to navigate performance. This opens up the ability to adapt to adversity, refocus attention, and find purpose in your process.

Mental performance training uses the science of Sport and Performance Psychology, a robust field with over 30 years of research and application. This kind of training is used by Olympic athletes, professional sport organizations, and elite college athletics.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Mental Performance Coaching and Sports Psychology

What is sport and performance psychology?

Sport and performance psychology is a robust science that has been developed over decades of research and applied practice. According to the Association for Applied Sport Psychology, our work focuses on “providing every performer the resources to power their inner edge by strengthening the ability to perform, as well as the ability to thrive. By researching, training, and serving performers’ comprehensive mental needs, we elevate their performance and well-being so they can realize their greatest potential.” MORE INFO

What is the intake for mental performance coaching?

Studies show that one of the most important factors of success in sport and performance psychology is the rapport between the client and mental performance coach. The intake is the process of understanding your history, strengths, obstacles, goals, presenting concerns, and much more. Think of this as a collaborative process where I learn about you, you learn about me, and we work together to identify your goals. This informs our work together and is the blueprint for a successful relationship.

What happens during a mental performance coaching session?

Sessions vary from client to client, but a session usually starts with an exercise to train a mental skill that has been identified as impactful. For example, we might partake in a 5-10 min exercise to train focus and attention. We then move into barriers for the goals that we have identified. For example, maybe we are working on performance anxiety and need to create a pre-performance routine. We will brainstorm together to create that plan and test it out.

Why should I choose the Immersion Package?

Just like training for speed or strength, progress takes time. Training the mental side is the same and we recommend a minimum of 3 sessions for progress to start. Our 6 and 9 session packages ensure a comprehensive and impactful service offering at a reduction in per-session cost.
