Introducing performance psychology
My approach is to work with performers to help them
understand Performance Psychology, and through a carefully
designed programme of physical and psychological exercises,
work with them to reduce performance stress to manageable
levels. My programme will enable the athletes, riders and actors to make a good start and achieve optimal performance.
I work with leading actors who perform both on the stage and screen and athletes at Olympic standard. As an ex-Olympic Sport Psychologist Barry applies winning methods and practice into the workplace.
