Dance Psychology Entertainment Psychology Performance Coach
Performance coach specialising in performance psychology coaching delivers exceptional results
for our clients in sport, business, the professions and the performing arts. The true performance is one of 'being'
and not of 'doing', it needs confidence, poise, preparation, continued learning and the ability to handle the
pressure and to bounce back against all adversity when things do not go quite as planned. This adversity will grow
you and ensure you are prepared properly the next time you need peak performance. You need to be fully in the
moment, experiencing and enjoying everything that you are doing. We help you eliminate the rumination of the past
that may be holding you back or the worry and doubts of the future that are continually holding your mind and body
in a state of anxiety, stress and sometimes even worse. Many performances are affected by this stress and tension
in terms of tight muscles, vocal chords, injury and poor quality thoughts. In reality we only ever have this
moment, the past has gone and the future is not necessarily ours. Our coaching will allow you to start experiencing
everything in your life moment by moment and stop allowing everything to pass you by.
Dance psychology and entertainment psychology addresses some of
the perfoming areas that are not only annoying but also quite scary to the perfomer and can often affect their
ability to deliver the best performance just when they need it. In competitive areas such as dance, stage or in
music the individual often has just one chance for 2 minutes or so to perform just as required to secure success or
yet another knock back. However, if the candidate is prepared, focused, calm and on-point then there is every
chance of success. This ideal performance state is achieveable with the correct strategies, practice and mindset
and links perfectly with your physical, purposeful and technical states. The harmony and flow delivers not only
results but enjoyment in everything that you do whether training, practice or going out on the stage. Stagefright, performance anxiety fear and choking
will be a thing of the past as you will be in control of your mind, emotions and body. Dancers will improve
performance as they become better prepared; have the ability to bounce back; experience less injuries through tense
muscles and just start to enjoy their craft with passion. Singers and actors enjoy clearer minds and can ensure
that anxiety stays as butterflies and excitement as opposed to debilitating nerves that restrict your voice, memory
or movement. You are no different than an elite athlete who trains all their life and have to perform
for maybe only 2 minutes, not having control of your thoughts, emotions, actions and behaviours is terribly
sad and totally your responsibility.
Psychology for performance in the professions is a blend of
personal and corporate mental psychology. If you consider the performance level of an aircraft pilot who has
responsibility for 300 people and maybe an aircraft costing millions of pounds, then it is easy to see that
they must be calm and in control of their emotions, clear thinking with an uncluttered mind, total self-belief in
their ability to transport everybody to their destination safely and the mental strength to deal with errors,
emergencies and changes not expected. The same would apply to surgeons who have someone's life in their hands.
They need total concentration, self awareness and the ability to perform within a team that matches their technical
skill and often physical endurance. In all the professions there are a unique set of issues that can be detrimental
to performance but we find that a well trained mind that has the ability to handle psychological performance,
joined with a healthy well nourished body puts the professional into a great place that can be enhanced even more
by developing deeper levels of talent through deliberate and deep practice not often pursued after qualification.
We coach professionals to keep learning and to change structures in their brain through particular techniques
proven to work through new forms of imaging of the brain.
In both these areas there are powerful benefits to be claimed by practicing mental skills
and implementing them into your daily life. If we consider the world of sport in which there are decades of
evidence and scientific research that are drawn upon constantly by athletes, coaches and teams who are seeking that
extra cm of distance, reduced second from time and extra kg of power and effort to win and come first. Their
commitment, mental strength, determination, skill, power, fitness, health and purpose takes their journey from a
daydream to their ultimate outcome goal.
Our form of coaching will develop you into a great performer ready to take your opportunities
and leave you with the strategies to enhance all areas of your life, all undertaken under
confidential conditions. We have options for you, your team or your organisation, so why wait any longer to
become the next rising star.
