Performance Psychology

Performance Psychology

The mind has a key role to play in sport. What we think and how we feel will impact on any sporting performance.

Sport psychology is a positive psychology focussing on enhancing sport performance by  helping athletes and coaches develop mental skills to become better at what they are already very good at.

A positive mindset during training keeps you focused on making the small improvements to make you better.  A positive mindset during competition may make that 1% difference between achieving your goals.  Sport psychologists help individuals and teams identify that winning mindset to develop, enhance and maintain optimal performance.

Led by Pete Lindsay, the EIS have a team of Sports Psychologists working with athletes throughout the EIS network.
