Individual mindset coaching

This is an opportunity for athletes or coaches to work closely with expert mindset coach, Matthew. This is where many athletes use their time to work grow their mental skills and characteristics to improve their performance. Matthew uses the latest techniques in sport psychology, cognitive-behavioural coaching and cognitive neuroscience to develop a high performance mindset. 

1 to 1 high-performance mindset coaching starts with an initial intake and needs analysis session. We will set some targets to guide the work we do, and will work towards those targets on a session by session basis. How many sessions you have is guided by you and when we finish working together you will be provided with a report that details the work we have done together, and the skills and techniques that you have learnt to improve your performance.
