The goal of a sports psychologist is to provide training on mindset skills and practices to improve athletic performance, maintain focus during competition, and recover from failures—keeping you at the peak of your game. In contrast, I work with accomplished athletes who are past this stage and already know how to hit their peak athletically. My work focuses on transitional and transformational change.
Transitional change is necessary because you may be in a transition in your life and need to dismantle old way methods of maintaining performance and shed patterns no longer useful to you. This allows you to fully engage with your new stage of life.
Transformational change is required when you need a fundamental change in your strategy and the way you operate. Besides new behaviors, you require a new set of principles that allow you to understand and take action in the direction you desire—A fundamental shift in your mindset. Transformational change is no longer about improving performance, learning new behaviors to achieve more, or shedding negative patterns. You need a new mindset and worldview so that you can evolve your operating system to reach a new stage of excellence that is sustainable; not only for you, but also for the people and causes you deeply care about. Transformation goes beyond problem-solving—It’s is about evolving your capacity to tap more deeply into your potential and create possibilities not previously available or even imagined.
