Sports Psychology

Improving mindset and performance

Focusing on the mental aspect of your performance can be the difference between winning and losing!!

If you haven’t trained in your mental performance, are you ready?

As a Sports Psychologist, I help athletes to focus on the mental aspect of their performance, to help athletes to prepare psychologically, and to deal with the psychological demands of both competition and training.

I primarily work with athletes, coaches, and referees, from amateur to elite-level. My work is centred on how psychology influences sport and how it can improve mindset and performance. My aim is to prepare sporting athlete’s to set effective goals, to deal with wins and losses, to stay composed under pressure and cope with the intense pressure that comes from competition.


There are a wide range of psychological tools and techniques that can be implemented: goal setting; imagery and performance planning; motivation, focus and concentration, and attention control strategies. Work can also include the development of self-confidence, self-esteem, and competence in sports; emotion management, sportsmanship, and leadership skills. I work with sports participants across a range of individual to team sports, all ages, and from amateur to elite levels.

One to One Consultations

This entails having a relaxed conversation with the athlete to gain an understanding of the mental aspect of their performance. Following this, a tailor-made programme specific to the needs of the athlete is developed.

Workshops - Sporting Groups

Carrying out mental skills workshops with sporting teams is an area of growing interest, with many sporting teams delving into areas such as resilience, effective communication, mental toughness, leadership. These workshops are carried out to give athletes more of an insight into the many benefits of practising the mental aspect of their game and not to leave it to chance.

Most importantly this talk will highlight where to signpost and facilitate appropriate help seeking from mental health professionals.
