Peak Performance Q & A
What is peak performance?
If you watch or perform competitive sports, you might have heard the term peak performance. This concept falls under performance psychology, a subdiscipline of psychology that focuses on in-the-moment performance skills.
Performance psychology is quite valuable for athletes, but it can also benefit business leaders, performing artists, surgeons, and many other professionals who need excellent mental and physical processing skills to achieve their objectives.
How can peak performance coaching improve my abilities?
Thriving Center of Psychology offers peak performance coaching to help you pinpoint your challenges, channel your physical energy, improve your mental processing, and release your creativity.
Peak performance coaching helps you develop the following:
- Emotional intelligence and resilience
- Positive attitude and motivation
- Positive self-image and self-awareness
Peak performance coaching teaches you to embrace positive self-talk, manage your emotions, and enhance your overall mentality. You can collaborate with your psychologist or therapist to build personalized techniques that enable you to:
- Improve your group communication relevant to team sports or business
- Overcome performance-related trauma or anxiety
- Maximize creativity or physical prowess
- Understand and integrate past failures
Your mental health practitioner uses various therapeutic methods to guide you in developing your skills and optimizing your performance.
What type of therapy is involved in peak performance?
The practitioners at Thriving Center of Psychology have extensive experience and training in many therapeutic techniques. The ones they use during peak performance coaching include:
- Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT)
- Neurofeedback (electroencephalographic or EEG biofeedback)
- Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
Neurofeedback, or electroencephalograph (EEG) biofeedback, is an effective method for delivering peak performance training. Neurofeedback is noninvasive and teaches you to control your real-time brain waves. Understanding and managing your brainwave activity allows you to concentrate, relax, and manage your emotions before, during, and after a performance.
How many peak performance coaching sessions will I need?
The number of peak performance sessions you’ll need depends on your objectives and unique situation. You can set up coaching to work on a specific goal or schedule ongoing appointments to maximize your overall development.
If you are a professional with rigorous mental or physical performance standards, peak performance training can improve your emotional well-being and maximize your physical and mental outputs.
