“I have been swimming competitively most of my life. However, I noticed that the only thing stopping me from getting where I wanted to be, was my mental state. I was doubting myself behind the blocks, not racing the way I was training. Through the year that I’ve been talking with Kate, I’ve seen a lot of progression and growth. Not only does Kate provide a safe space to talk, she provides me with exercises that are specific to my character and progress. Overall, Kate has guided me in finding ways to manage my stress and nerves. She has helped me to progress towards my goals outside and inside the pool.”

What is Mental Performance ?
Mental performance is concerned with understanding the “mental game”, whether that game is athletic or otherwise. It is about human performance and building the necessary mental skills and techniques necessary to perform consistently and effectively regardless of the situation. It is a discipline that investigates and seeks to understand the factors that are involved in reaching and consistently maintaining optimal athletic performance – to strive to achieve one’s best.
Why is Mental Training Important?
At the upper levels of sports performance, in situations where competing individuals and teams have all the technical skills and tactical knowledge required to be successful, the mental aspect of the game becomes the most important determinant of outcome. Every athlete is looking for an edge, but most spend their time on the physical skills. To reach your full potential as an elite athlete, not only in a game but also in your sports performance training, it is necessary to go beyond having the best equipment, coaching, skills or nutrition. To move beyond the frustrations, anger, performance anxiety, and low self confidence that at times accompany your journey to the top of your sport it is necessary to turn within and understand your own mind.
How We Will Help You Develop Your Mental Performance
Our approach starts by understanding where the athlete currently is and where they want to end up. What are the current mental blocks or lack of mental skills? What are their goals and dreams? How do they want to perform during competitions and sports performance training?
We need to discover the strengths and limitations of the athlete, and how these factors impact them the most under pressure. This involves having the athlete take an assessment, we like to use The Test of Attentional and Interpersonal Style Inventory (TAIS), which is the most sophisticated performance enhancement assessment of its kind. Understanding how people behave and experience themselves under pressure or stress is important because the pressure can cause significant changes in their normal way of being. The ability to perform up to potential is often altered and this can have drastic effects on the level of performance.
Next, there is a period of education and skill development, followed by on-going follow-up and adjustments. This would be similar to what an athlete will experience in their sports performance training, to train their body, only this is for the mind. The specifics of the actual mental skills training will vary from athlete to athlete, with the vast majority of interaction and consultation with mental performance coaches done via video/in office, during practice or at athletic venues.
