Services

Performance in Mind offer services focused on performance psychology and effective communication:

 

Sport Psychology sessions for both elites and amateurs. We work with both juniors and adults between the ages of 10 and 80 (though would love to support those who are older if they are up for it!). We tend to support those who: 

  • Compete or perform regularly and want to maximise their success and learn some long term mental skills and performance techniques. We will work on strategies and tactical goal planning, setting of targets and focus for the season and the identification of mental skills to improve specific barriers in current performance.
  • Are currently injured or dealing with a setback to set goals for recovery and information and advice on making the most of time off sport to learn new mental skills. The process will also include identification of potential trigger points and stressors for further injury or issues and help to ensure these can be managed effectively.
  • Are dealing with performance issues which are really restricting their ability to succeed. These are often related to anxiety, lack of emotional control, perfectionism or social comparison.

For amateurs we tend to need around 5 or 6 sessions and these are usually spaced out fortnightly so there is time for practice and homework. For elites the support is ongoing as and when needed based on issues or competitive events. We work from a really nice approach called ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) which helps us understand and acknowledge the barriers we face but identify and use our values and purpose in life to overcome them. It is a gentle approach which is well suited to the sporting environment. Each session is online and costs £75 for 55 minutes. If you would prefer face to face sessions they cost £100 and take place in Chiswick, West London.  

 

Performance Psychology sessions: These sessions work for anyone aiming to perform at a high level in whatever career they have chosen. We have worked with clients in medicine, law, stage, sales, and screen to help them develop brilliant skills and a mastery mindset approach to their career. This video Josephine presented for the Open University and BBC shows just how sport psychology techniques can be equally valuable in other careers. 

There are no required number of sessions for performance psychology work. Some clients come for a few weeks until they have learnt what they need, others for a few months and some people will come and go as and when they have challenges at work they need support with. All the work is through the ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Training) approach which helps us understand and acknowledge the barriers we face but identify and use our values and purpose in life to overcome them. Each session is online and costs £75 for 55 minutes. If you would prefer face to face sessions they cost £100 and take place in Chiswick, West London.  

 

Workshops: Josephine can run workshops, webinars or talks for clubs, organisations and companies. These can be off to the shelf on key issues that arise regularly: 

Workshop 1: I can be successful       
Workshop 2: I can handle my nerves                       
Workshop 3: I can improve                                                              
Workshop 4: I can be confident                                                                   
Workshop 5: I can control my emotions                                          
Workshop 6: I can concentrate                                                                    
Workshop 7: I can bounce back       
Workshop 8: I can belong                                                                             
Workshop 9: I can feel like an athlete      

Workshops are priced based individually based on travel and time required but usually cost between £200-250.
