Performance Psychology

Working with individuals to optimise thinking and performance

Performance Psychology is used to help a range of people achieve a better, more consistent and refined approach to achieving their goals. It examines how psychological factors influence performance across all aspects of sport and performance, including training and adherence to training plans, achieving balanced nutrition, teamwork, self-discipline, addressing burnout, goal setting, endurance and motivation. It can assist individuals ranging from VCE students, professional athletes, coaches and trainers, to amateur sportspeople and people engaged in recreational sports.
