Who Can Benefit?

Anyone can benefit from a performance coach. Ashley works with youth athletes as young 8 years old to athletes training for their first marathon at 60 something. You could be a weekend warrior attempting a mud run, a ninja warrior competition, a high school athlete trying to earn a scholarship, a college athlete who isn’t the top dog suddenly, or a retiring athlete who no longer defines themselves by the sport and needs to learn how to cope without the sport. In her career, she has worked with youth athletes, junior high, high school athletes, recreational first timer competitors, collegiate All-Americans, Olympians, and National Champions. She has also worked with singers, musicians, stage performers, and public speakers. Everyone can improve their performance through their mental game. 

Coaches – Need help working on team cohesion, communication, anxiety, or  injury prevention? Open up to what research supports in performance coaching and share these advantages with your team. Learn how to motivate anyone and create the next leader or more effective ways to develop group goals & actually reach them!

High School Athletes – Want to compete at the next level? Want to increase your likelihood of a scholarship? Want to appeal to more college recruiters and coaches? Want your character, work ethic, and mindset to stand out to scouts? Learn how to get your mental game in line as much as your physical game and become versed in sports psychology. Grab an opportunity to get ahead & get out of your own way!

Elite Athletes – Ever think about tweaking a few parts of your routine? Are you stuck in a rut? Have you lost your passion for training? Use all of your resources and educate yourself on the mental edge. Don’t let your opponent have a leg up on you.

Performers – Have stage fright, anxiety, or nerves before the show? Need more stage presence? You only get one 1st impression or try out? Any type of performer or presenter can benefit from mental skills training and building their confidence.

Students – Overwhelmed applying for schools, stressed about finals, need help organizing yourself, panicking before tests, or want direction figuring out what you want to major in? Perfectionism and high expectations with current demands on high school students can be tough if you don’t know how to navigate through. Performance psychology skills help here too. 

Parents – Help your children gain strategies on focusing in school, how to support them in the stands,  how to increase their confidence in sports, dealing with peer pressure, adapting to a new role on a team, or even just coping skills for life’s journey. Learn when to correct, what situations are best to discipline in, how to avoid placing extra pressure on them, how best to get them to respond, or how to change behaviors.

Exercisers – Need more motivation to start a program? Maybe how to maintain one or be more consistent? Sport Psychology strategies and tools can help you finally produce results.

Recreational Athletes – Want to run a half marathon or attempt a triathlon? Playing in a golf tournament this weekend with your colleagues? Want to amp up your tennis game? Acquire some techniques and tips to better prepare you. Don’t let emotion over power you and learn what you can and can’t control.

Business Professionals – Giving a big presentation, sales pitch, or going on an interview? Brush up on strategies to ace your competition. Learn how to respond and not react. Performance Psychology can assist you in being more assertive, confident, and dealing with criticism or confrontation. Practice tough interview questions, having more presence, and learn the best responses to really make you stand out.

Executives – Looking for ways to energize your office? Hunting for a new employee or ways to expand your team’s communication skills? Want to get your team motivated for a new project? Want your office to build a better team culture  or incorporate more of a team setting? Be trained in how to spot situations for improvement and ultimately grow your business with effective, productive employees. Learn about less absenteeism and lessening excuses to build better relationships.

Busy Moms – Don’t have time for everything? Want some clarity and direction? Need to relax or manage stress more effectively? Would an outsider’s advice help you focus or know where to be more efficient with your time? Performance Psychology can help you cope with adversity and learn how to live a more satisfying productive life.
