The Art of Sport Psychology
Through the application of sport psychology concepts and collaborative counselling, my goal is to collaborate with you and sharpen your mental skills, to give you an edge over the competition. Training your mind can help to improve to following mental skills and enhance performance: improving confidence and motivation, self regulation of intensity levels, sparking conscientiousness, entering the right competitive mind set and sharpening imagery and visualization skills.
The Science of Sport Psychology
Research topics in the area of Sport Psychology include: self presentation processes, self efficacy, motivation, attributions, perceived control and self regulation. According to Gardiner and Moore (2007), the interaction of dispositional characteristics, competencies, performance demands and self-regulation can contribute in either a functional or dysfunction manner to success. Applied sport psychology research is used to enhance performance.
I am a Mental Performance Consultant who specializes in enhancing performance in individual sports. I work collaboratively with athletes to increase confidence, motivation and performance through sharpening mental skills such as, but not limited to: goal setting, self-talk, distraction control, mental readiness and imagery. I have worked with athletes varying from the recreational level to the elite level in running, rowing, gymnastics, boxing and triathlon. I have also worked with individuals to enhance physical fitness.
I completed my undergraduate degree at The University of Western Ontario, where I was Co-Captain of the Track and Field Team. My belief that sport nourishes qualities such as poise, discipline and overall well-being was solidified while training on the track and studying psychology. Eager to learn more about Sport Psychology, I completed a Master’s of Human Kinetics at the University of Ottawa where I became the 2012 Canadian Interuniversity Sport Champion over 1000 meters.
