Performance Psychology is a branch of psychology that deals with teaching the psychological skills necessary to facilitate and develop peak performance in any arena, whether it be in:
- Performing arts
- Public speaking
Performance is a complex human activity and a thorough knowledge of the factors that influence performance enables us to understand how to achieve the ideal performance state.
At Attuned Psychology, we draw on the latest cutting edge research and performance experience, offering a mindfulness based approach that teaches skills in achieving task focused attention through knowing how to deal with thoughts, feelings and distractions.
We understand from the research that when faced with a performance challenge, a person who knows how to let go of unhelpful thoughts, make room for unpleasant feelings and totally engage with the task, will perform well regardless of how anxious they are.
Performance psychology offers an insight into performance that goes beyond the mechanics of performance to the psychology behind achieving success in any field, helping people to set and achieve meaningful goals and truly enjoy performance.
At Attuned Psychology, we provide a unique insight as we blend an understanding of performance from direct performing arts experience with psychological knowledge, current research and psychology experience.
