In our work as Life Coaches we have often come across students who are:
- Stuck in the clutches of a performance slump;
- Have hung on to their mistakes, bad breaks, and failures; or
- Performing better in practice than in competition.
Our challenge was to help these student perform better, by linking them to a sport and exercise psychology service that would enhance the consistency of their performances.
To do this we partner with the University Of Queensland School Of Psychology to deliver a Sport and Exercise Psychology service, for our students, Teachers and Coaches. Now it is second year at Marsden SHS the UQ Sport Psychology Service @ MSHS is delivered two days a week by UQ Sport Psychologists from the Centre of Excellence.
The key focus of our UQ Sport Psychologists is on the development of mental skills - the ability for students to understand and use their minds to improve their performances and enjoyment.
The results show that whatever the objective - winning, personal success, excellence, challenge, social interaction, exercise, relaxation, or simply enjoyment – our UQ Sport Psychologists help students achieve their goals.
There is no fee for this service provided by UQ Sports Psychologists.
