Sport Psychology Workshops
Workshops are a great way to introduce psychological concepts (such as emotional control, understanding motivation, developing resilience) to groups, teams and organisations involved in sport. The workshops are designed to be interactive and engaging via discussions, practical exercises and visual aids. The focus, content and length of each workshop will vary depending upon the focus of the workshop and the audience.
Workshops are great for:
- Athletes — Educating athletes on psychological concepts that influence athletic performance and using psychological skills to enhance performance in training and competition. Athletes will also be educated and supported in maintaining their mental health and well-being (performance lifestyle support), whilst also optimising performance.
- Young Athletes — Introducing young athletes to psychological skills and concepts such as developing a healthy motivation, dealing with wins and losses, and dealing with pre-competition nerves.
- Coaches — Presenting psychological skills and concepts that coaches and support staff can integrate into training with their individual athletes and/or teams, such as team cohesion, team values, communication, simulating competitive pressures in training, and developing confidence.
- Parents — Providing ways that parents and family members can support their children with their training and competition(s). Parents will also learn ways to best support themselves.
