Performance Coaching Course:
'Winning the mental game'
“Approved by the British Psychological Society for the purposes of Continuing Professional Development (CPD).”
This is a semi-structured course consisting of 6 hours of training.
The course is applicable for elite athletes and yet is also applicable to anyone who wants to improve the mental approach to their sport - to achieve improved performance and also better quality of training.
Face-to-Face - groups of up to 10 people.
Online using Zoom video meetings - groups of up to 5 people.
This course is very practically-orientated training to teach the participants a framework for improving their mental approach to achieve their best performance in their sport. The framework is structured, yet allows each individual the opportunity to tailor the skills and tools to suit their own approach to sport.
Understanding of the role of the mental approach to sport and how this interacts with technical and physical training.
Identification of a ‘Dream goal’, milestones and chunks.
