Performance
Psychology

Performance Psychology is similar to sport psychology but applied to participants other than athletes. We are all performers in one way or another and seek to enhance our performance. The artist, musician, dancer, writer, business woman, marketing consultant or people starting a business are all individuals looking for “the edge” to make a difference in their performance. And we know that that edge can be found by training for the psychological aspects of performance, regardless of the performance demand.

The work is similar to that done with athletes and coaches; however, the clientele include the following:
