What Is Performance Psychology?

Performance psychology focuses on human behaviour in high-stress situations. These situations can range from sports competitions to military combat, but they're all characterized by high stakes and heightened emotions. It helps people overcome problems that impede performance in these environments, such as anxiety, doubt, and depression. In addition to improving individual performance, performance psychologists also work with teams to create an optimal environment for success.

How Does Performance Psychology Help?

Performance psychologists work with individuals and teams to help them achieve peak performance. They help people set goals and reach them by providing strategies for self-motivation, goal-setting, stress management, and conflict resolution. They also work with companies to help employees learn new skills, improve performance under pressure, or adapt to new situations.

Stress Management

Sports Therapy

Sports therapy is about helping you achieve your highest potential or supporting others in doing so. It’s about teaching you how to care for your body and mind so that you can perform at your peak level. Additionally, it is about knowing how to help others reach their potential by becoming a better teammate, coach, or trainer. Beyond improving focus, productivity, stress management, and overall mental well-being, sports therapy also tackles physiological limitations. 
As an example, sports therapy can help individuals regain confidence after injuries or if dealing with chronic pain, enabling a safe, efficient, and confident return to participating in their sport.

Increase Your Job Performance

Performance therapy is a transformative approach that empowers entrepreneurs, employees, or managers to elevate their productivity, efficiency, ambition, and organizational skills in the workplace. By identifying strengths and weaknesses, strategies and tools are developed to enhance their overall effectiveness; the goal is to help individuals understand why they are struggling in certain areas and to provide ways they can overcome obstacles to success so they can thrive in their roles.
