I focus on the performer's mental game as it relates to and influences their performance. I’m concerned with all aspects of life that may be impeding one's performance, and believe that everyone can limit or enhance their performance potential by what they believe, think and perceive. Keeping an open, observant and absorbent mind is crucial to achieving an optimal performance. Everyone needs to train their mind in order to reach their full performance potential and to fully identify and release their talents. Your mind is like a parachute and only works when it’s open.
The mind is a powerful ally and asset that most people don’t train or use properly. The mind tells the body what to do, confirming that all performances starts within the mind. What you believe affects how you think and feel, which affects how you behave and perform. Within our minds, there are words, beliefs, thoughts and feelings that are like mental nutrition. That mental nutrition needs to be healthy, empowered, confident and compassionate in order to reach our full performance potential. Addressing the internal mind releases the external performance. Performance psychology doesn't create talent, it helps to release talent. The mind needs to be trained and taught skills to perform optimally.
When it comes to performing, I believe sometimes performers have to become comfortable performing in the discomfort. Being uncomfortable can sometimes mean performing with a manageable level of fear or anxiety. Identifying and stepping out of your comfort zone will reveal and identify mental barriers that are holding your performance back. Your comfort zone can limit your ability to obtain a desired performance level. When using sport and performance psychology, the comfort zone is expanded and broadened, allowing performances to reach new levels.
I passionately work with performers, athletes, teams, coaches and organizations to help them navigate the mental challenges encountered in the world of performance. I help identify mental barriers that are impeding performances, and provide performance enhancement techniques to neutralize the mental barriers. This process releases and enhances performance potential, allowing performances to become more confident, optimal and enjoyable. These mental performance barriers include:
