WHAT HAPPENS IN A COACHING SESSION?
Sportsmind is not like seeing a sport psychologist. Sportsmind is not psychological counselling. We don’t treat ‘problems’, and we don’t offer counselling.
Using models of excellence we teach people success skills and strategies, building resources and capabilities that foster self reliance and high achievement.
A typical coaching session goes for an hour, during which we identify a specific performance outcome – what do you want to improve? Then we assist you to move in that direction using NLP modelling and high achievement techniques.
For example, a typical session might cover simple ways to maintain your concentration and focus through the use of sensory ‘triggers’; or techniques for mastering negative emotions; or changing perceptions of a past negative event; or strategies for developing a more positive mental attitude and personal resilience. Or we might work on building a strong sense of self confidence and a more positive self image; or design a range of viable action plans, and program these into your future using timelines; or help you overcome a negative limiting belief. Or maybe help you with your motivation; or encourage you to extend your personal performance ‘comfort zone’ to reach a higher level of play.
It’s up to you.
Performance coaching is most effective when conducted as a structured program of training over 3, 6 or 12 months and supported by written and audio tape material for use by the athlete. Just attending a few sessions with a ‘sports psychologist’ is like expecting to get physically fit by going to the gym just half a dozen times!
Everyone knows that the best results come from consistent, sustained effort and training ….. and this is what Sportsmind provides.
Consequently the minimum Sportsmind training program is 3 months – and we don’t see clients for just a few sessions. Sportsmind is committed to excellence and we expect the same from our clients.
Specific sessions are designed to suit your individual requirements and sport specificity after the first coaching session, and we use a combination of in-person and/or phone coaching.
Note : Acceptance into a Sportsmind coaching program is by application since there are limited coaching places available.
Performance coaching fees are available on application.
Small group / team sessions are also catered for.
