Upping your game

Helping you reach your peak performance

Contributed by Barbara Walker, PhD

tennis playerFrom professional athletes to weekend warriors, performance is affected by more than just physical factors. In fact, it’s the psychological factors that can often hold you back from reaching your peak performance.

As a performance psychologist, I’ve seen athletes of all ages struggle through mental blocks. Often they try to overcome their problem by spending more time training on the treadmill, on the court or in the batting cage. But success in a sport comes from more than just “keeping your eye on the ball” or having “quick feet.” Quite often, peak performance requires changing the very way you think.

I help athletes to re-evaluate their automatic thought process in order to establish a healthier way of thinking. This stops self-defeating thoughts and establishes a positive way of thinking, which allows them to perform at their very best. And best of all, changing the way you think goes well beyond sports success and relates to all aspects of life—business, family, hobbies, etc.
