What is Mental Performance?

  • Mental Performance refers to the mental and emotional aspects of performance that enables both individuals and teams to achieve high levels of success.

  • Mental Performance training comes from the field of sport psychology and concentrates specifically on helping athletes break through the mental barriers that keep them from reaching their optimal performance.

What is the difference between coaching and counseling?

  • Mental performance coaching utilizes evidence based mental skills techniques to help you train your mind to overcome the mental blocks that may be hindering your performance.

  • While mental skills techniques can also be utilized during counseling, counseling focuses more on the identification diagnosis and treatment of relief of psychiatric disorders.

Is it only for athletes or people with a “problem?”

  • No! Mental performance training isn’t just for athletes or those with a “problem.” Mental training can help you maximize your ability to use mental and emotional techniques to enhance your ability in all areas of your life.

Sounds great, is it covered by insurance?

  • Mental performance coaching is not covered by insurance. I understand that coaching is a financial commitment, I also strongly believe it to be an investment. Imagine what it would be like to overcome your mental blocks, accomplish your
    goals and experience growth in a way that can change how you handle life’s challenges.
