The Performance Mindset

Elite performance requires the mental skills to achieve it.

Developing your Performance Mindset, we empower you to fulfil your potential.

Within a continuous improvement culture, we enable outstanding & sustainable results.



The Performance Mindset enables you to integrate mental skills development into coach, player & team development, improving the learning culture.​ 

It enhances the Coach’s tool-kit, via practical mental skill development, to get the best from players technical, tactical & physical skills.

Mental skills are required to perform at the highest level & under pressure, but are often the missing component. The Performance Mindset delivers this for you.

Through the delivery cycle, we enable development throughout the club, to improve performance & achieve goals.


Mental Skills Coaching

Mentality is often only referred to in a negative context & as a character flaw. Therefore it is addressed as such, as a personal issue that needs fixing in times of crisis.

Like any skill, mental skills can be developed to improve confidence, resilience & performance - but it must be developed as a skill.

Developing mental skills allows individuals & teams to maximise other skills sets, natural abilities & to perform at their best. 

Through our mental skills coaching programme we change perceptions, unlock potential, improving confidence & performance.


The Mind Gym


The Mind Gym plays a fundamental role in building the foundation for growth, in both individuals & teams.

Our skills based model is simple, practical & relevant, meaning it is easily understood so it can be practiced & applied when it's needed.

Whilst ideas create innovation, actions enable improvement - this is the principle of the Mind Gym & how it develops performance.

Performance Preparation


How you prepare to perform is crucial for success, & must be bespoke to ensure the highest performance on a consistent basis. 

We build capability at an individual & team level, and enable coach's to prepare teams to perform at their best when its really needed.

Mentality plays a huge role in the delivery of performance - we ensure you prepare to perform at your best & when its really needed.

Performance Delivery


Performance under pressure, clear thinking & decision making is what separates the good from the great.

Having the knowledge, skills & tools that can be applied 'in the heat of the battle' are crucial to perform under pressure.

Working with individuals & teams we empower them to deal with the challenges faced with bespoke solutions that work for them.

Performance Review


Self-awareness, honesty & responsibility are crucial for personal development and we embed this throughout the programme.

Reviewing performance, understanding what needs to improve & how to do this enables continuous improvement.


Our Prepare - Perform - Review (repeat) model provides a total performance solution to get the best from individuals & teams.  


The Performance Mindset

Match Day

Match day can place individuals & teams under intense levels of expectation, scrutiny, and therefore pressure. 


We prepare them for what lies ahead, how to deal in the present & perform when it's needed the most. 

The 'process' prepares players, allowing them to transfer & apply knowledge on the pitch, increasing confidence & performance.

To enable this it must be simple & practical, easy to practice, with relevance to the individual & moment in the game.
