Geoff's work in Performance psychology borrows from many fields that contribute to humans enhancing their processes in sport, dance, theatre, circus and all the performing arts where skill is required. These contributions include sport psychology, skill acquisition and learning processes; expertise in coaching and teaching; cognitive psychology; neuropsychology, positive psychology and the sciences to do with music and artistic expression.
This field of performance enhancement has great application in all domains of 'achievement'. Geoff suggests it can be useful for:
Sport & Performance Psychology
with Geoff Paull
ambition & aspiration
So it’s a very diverse area for those who have ambitions at all levels of 'performance'. When you add on the need for social and family factors; the strain on relationships that a professional career can present; education and career demands; financial management that is often a concern (for reasons of too much as well as too little); and pressures around drugs and substance misuse, it requires a vast set of skills to work across the board with ‘performers’.
Sport psychology provides a set of skills for on-field performance enhancement; personal and relationship maintenance in a sporting career; and self-management skills for out of sport interests and activities. This set of competencies has also contributed greatly to his work as a Lifeskills Coach where ‘performance’ is generalised to all those areas where we must learn to work at the highest levels possible to achieve our goals and outcomes (click here to read more about Geoff’s Life Coaching work)
Performance psychology and is appropriate for all levels of participant. You don't have to be aspiring to Olympic level to benefit from a discussion about enhancing your performance:
P Young athletes and artists benefit by the early use of mental skills in their practice, performance and life balance
P Senior elite performers most always need enhanced psychological skills and sound routines to sustain themselves at that level
P Recreational athletes and exercisers can use this information to manage themselves in training and competition to ensure they
continue to enjoy participation
P Retiring competitors and artists usually benefit from some counselling on transition factors to help them continue to feel
positive about their life without the buzz of performance
