Teams and Workshops

Teams

Jo has a vast experience of providing sport psychology consultation to a range of different teams. This often involves working in close liaison with coaches, support teams, captains, and the players themselves. Team services are bespoke to the group’s specific requirements and can include: group workshops and 1:1 sessions with players and staff, as well as integrated training and competition support. Areas where psychology input can add value include:

  • Creating a team vision and values
  • Understanding how to set effective team goals and understand individual roles
  • Developing efficient and positive communication channels
  • Promoting team cohesion and group relationships
  • Understanding and overcoming team tension
  • Team motivation and focus – ‘Crossing  the line’ when it matters

Workshops

Workshops are a great way to introduce sport psychology concepts (e.g. confidence, focus, motivation, performing under pressure) to groups at sport clubs, academies, schools, colleges, and universities. Jo’s workshops are designed to be engaging and interactive via discussions and practical tasks. The focus, content, and length of each workshop is tailored to the interests and requirements of the audience, who may comprise of:

  • Athletes – Introducing wellbeing and mental performance skills.
  • Coaches – Presenting psychological concepts that coaches can integrate into training and competitions.
  • Youth – Making psychology accessible and fun for younger athletes. Jo has run workshops with children from 8-years and up.
  • Parents – Practical recommendations around supporting youth athletes, and working as a parent-child team.

What Jo’s clients are saying…

We’ve been working with Jo at Wycombe Swimming for the last 3 months which covered the lead up to the British Championships and more recently, the lead up to the British Summer Championships and European Junior Championships. Jo has spent considerable time to tailor the workshops to the needs of my athletes and their sport of swimming. She has worked on instilling confidence, managing anxiety, focus and routines at competitions…. My athletes have really benefited from this area of “training” and I’m starting to see positive benefits at their target competitions and during training itself. Jo is a professional, with an engaging and enthusiastic manor. I highly recommend her for you, your club and your athletes – regardless of level they compete at.
