Does a performance enhancement consultant provide mental health services? This is one of the most frequently asked performance and sport psychology questions.  A performance enhancement consultant is not a mental health professional.  A mental health professional’s training focuses on helping individuals with mental health issues such as anxiety disorder and depression.  Even though a mental health professional helps individuals with performance, the main focus of a mental health professional is not to help only in performance like a performance enhancement consultant.  As a performance enhancement consultant for Driven To Peak Consulting, I focus only on helping individuals with their performance through using performance enhancement skills.  

A performance enhancement consultant is not a personal trainer.  A personal trainer specializes in designing exercise programs and doing exercises with the proper form.  Even though a personal trainer helps individuals with performance, the main focus of a personal trainer is not to help only in performance like a performance enhancement consultant.  As a performance enhancement consultant, I focus only on helping individuals with their performance through using performance enhancement skills.  I use performance enhancement skills to help exercisers start, maintain, and perform at their peak.

What is a performance enhancement consulting session like working together with a performance enhancement consultant?  Below provides a sneak peek of a session with a performance enhancement consultant.

My services are designed to help people with their performance.  The first session working with a performance enhancement consultant is like an interview that is between 45 to 60 minutes long. 

First, we go over the rules and expectations related to performance enhancement consulting session.  Before we start working on a new client’s performance, we focus on getting to know the client to build a relationship and trust with the client.  The second half of the first session includes establishing a plan that involves introducing performance enhancement skills to address performance issues that prevent a client from performing at their best. 

Every session following the first session focuses on the progress that a client has made in using performance enhancement skills to improve his or her performance.  Additionally, we work on performance issues that surface for a client that prevent him or her from performing at their best. 

After a session with me, my clients will gain confidence and belief that they will improve their performance from gaining knowledge in performance enhancement skills to increase their performance.  This includes learning to pay attention to positive aspects related to their performance and to pay attention to aspects of performance that they can control.  My clients will see that performance enhancement skills are strength training for the mind just like cardiovascular and weights is strength training physically for the body.  Ready to improve your performance?  Book your appointment today!  For more detail information on a session with a performance enhancement consultant, check out the links below.

As a performance enhancement consultant, some examples of performance issues that I help people with are motivation, confidence, routines, goal-setting, self-talk, anxiety, transferring performance from practice to competition, providing feedback, taking the difficult first step in starting or resuming exercise and physical activity, increasing performance in physical activity and exercise, overtraining, prevention/recovery from injury, and prevention/recovery from burnout.  Are you ready to improve your performance?  Book your appointment today!  For more information on a session with a performance enhancement consultant, check out the links below.
