Sports Performance Coaching

Focus Your Performance helps you to bring out the best in your own performance.

Your coach, trainer or manager will inevitably teach you technical skills and work on your physical agility. Focus Your Performance can help you take your performance to the next level with a different form of coaching - "sports performance coaching". By using a different style of questioning to raise your awareness and responsibility, sports performance coaching can have far more impact than any prescribed instruction.

I do a lot of visualisation on track. It's not just about the physical side - it's the mental side too, and how you deal with pressures.
Jessica Ennis

Your mind always controls what you are doing, either consciously or unconsciously. With coaching and NLP, Focus Your Performance can help you take control of your mind in sport and encourage new thinking to improve your performance. To be successful itís important that you fully understand your real motivations and remain focussed on what you really want.

How much does your mind play a part in your physical performance?

Your thoughts, feelings and emotions all affect each other and your overall sports performance.

Wipe everything off the board. It's all about attitude.
Chuck Daly to Rik Carlisle, before winning the Dallas Maverickís first NBA championship

Whether itís to improve confidence and motivation or deal with setbacks and external distractions, itís not what happens that makes the biggest difference...
... itís how you respond that makes the biggest difference.

In my mind, I'm always the best. If I walk out on the court & I think the next person is better, I've already lost.
Venus Williams
"The mental steering that Carl developed with me through coaching has taught me a more productive methodology and successful practice that I can use when setting out from an initial aim to make that aim a reality."
"I was able to identify the potential barriers and was coached through the solutions. Carl kept me focused on my priorities and let me consider my distractions but kept me on track with my goal."

Sometimes referred to as mental performance coaching, mental toughness or mental training, Focus Your Performance helps you understand how your mind affects your performance in sport and how to use it to your advantage.

Sports performance coaching can help you:

  • Reduce pre-event nerves & anxiety
  • Deal with pressures
  • Build confidence
  • Improve focus & concentration
  • Set & develop effective training & performance goals
  • Understand your motivations
  • Overcome limiting beliefs & stop unhelpful habits
  • Eliminate negative thoughts and self-talk
  • Be at your best, more often

And it's more than sports performance...

I know how to keep my focus on the important things and not on what people are saying about you. When you start to let people outside your inner circle affect you, then you're on the wrong path.
Cesc Fabrigas

Coaching with Focus Your Performance helps you make sure youíre on top of everything else in life. If youíre happy off the field, youíll perform better on it.

"The main benefit is greater motivation. It's good to have regular opportunity to talk through plans, and make them more fixed. I gained an insight into how I think about problems. Coaching helped me to make decisions about what I wonít do as well as what I will."

What else is going on in your life that may be affecting your performance? Sometimes external distractions can be holding you back. With performance coaching you might be surprised where your thoughts lead you and what you discover to improve performance.

It doesnít have to be a sports-related issue that affects your confidence, but your confidence will affect your performance.

The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.

I've lost almost 300 games, 26 times I've been trusted

the pain is not due to the thing itself
but to your own estimate of it, and
this you have the power to revoke.
