PERFORMANCE COACHING

Getting to great. Performance coaching is a type of goal oriented solution focused therapy. At Mindworx Psychology, we offer a range of workshops, coaching and tailored training programs for individuals, small teams and large groups.

We work with athletes, executives and people from all walks of lives striving to achieve their full potential and achieve their goals. Goals as diverse as winning gold, selecting a successor, presenting confidently or being the type of parent they aspire to be.

Our programs and workshops use proven techniques in performance psychology, sports coaching, and business management.

People are not born as a high performer, nor as an average performer or an under performer. The attributes of high performance are largely a result of learned behaviours. We just need to know what these behaviours are in order to unlock our performance potential.

Our individual programs and workshops are designed to leave you with the practical skills to think more positively, build healthy relationships, manage information overload, effectively balance work and life, balance stress with recovery, and discover inner calm.
