Mental preparation as an athlete is key but more importantly psychological harmony is paramount to health and performance! You have to be aware of negative self-talk, unproductive repetitive thoughts, lack of self-trust in your abilities, over-analysis when competing all of which can take you out of optimal performance. According to the World Health Organization, one in four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide. Why then are so many of us affected by mental health disorders? Maybe one reason is that we are not computers, but often we are required to fulfil roles and situations that restrict our ability to be ‘’loose and natural” in our own nature.

Our practitioners use many methods which include cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), mindfulness and meditation, neurolinguistics programming (NLP), visualizations techniques and hypnosis to help you let go of unhelpful behaviours and patterns or to make sometimes difficult life transitions easier.

It does not matter whether you are an athlete, busy professional or a person recovering from illness, our team will assist you to find the right strategies for you to ensure that you can always maintain a good state of ‘being’ and ‘mind’.GET IN TOUCH
