The key starting point to all of our packages, and also available on a stand-alone basis if you're not yet sure how we can best support you. We look at your history in the sport, current results, future goals, and relationship with the support network around you. We'll then prepare a comprehensive report detailing what we can offer, and how this will benefit your performance. You are an integral part of this process, there is no 'one size fits all' approach and any intervention or support package is crafted around your individual needs as an athlete.
race weekend assessment
An intensive assessment starts with our attending a race weekend and observing a full competition from start to finish around the driver. We want to see exactly how you perform under the pressure of competition, what mental skills you may already be using, how you are supported in your team environment and interaction with your social support networks. We also look at how your weekend logistics are structured, to make sure they enable you to perform at your best. Following this we'll provide you with a detailed review highlighting any opportunity to apply a mental skills intervention; which we can then train you in if required.

After an initial consultation to assess your goals and requirements, we'll be on-hand to support you for the full season via regular email and phone/video conference contact. We work with you in between races to assess what went well, what could be improved, and how to implement key mental skills and strategies before your next race. While still focused on the race weekend, we take a performance lifestyle approach to look at the wider factors impacting how you stay race ready over the course of a season. A detailed series of case notes are reviewed on a regular basis to identify strengths, weaknesses and any key trends which can be tracked to aid in your progression as a driver.
We know from our experience with elite athletes that race day is where unforeseen challenges can occur, and pressure can derail the execution of carefully laid plans. As well as all of the season-long services detailed above in our e-consulation package, we can also attend race events and be present to provide a dedicated point of contact with the sole focus of ensuring that you are performing at your best.
We're on hand to take over small tasks at a race meeting and enable you to only focus on relevant performance-related factors. Working seamlessly around your team's operational procedures, we ensure that you're communicating with your immediate support network (e.g. race engineer) in an optimal manner, and applying the mental skills you've mastered outside of the race weekend. We make sure that every time you hit the track, whether it's a practice session or a race, you're always ready and in your individual zone of optimal performance.
We'll review your previous season as part of our initial consultation (unless we've already supported you over the season, in which case we'll have your case notes from every race already). We then focus on key areas that will benefit from some in-depth attention outside of the competitive season. We carry out a thorough re-assessment of your short, medium and long term goals, and utilize the time available in the off-season to concentrate on areas that will deliver the most useful performance gains for you at the onset of the new season. Whether you are progressing and transitioning to a new formula in the coming year, or remaining where you are for a further season; this package is equally as useful for both scenarios.
availableonline or face to face
We don't only work with drivers on a one-to-one basis, and can arrange sessions for groups of drivers or team members accordingly. In a competitive team setting there are many relationships that can impact upon performance, however the driver-engineer working relationship is seen to be most crucial, particularly as drivers advance up the motorsport ladder and technical feedback becomes ever more important. Race engineers often become a drivers' main point of contact over the course of a race weekend, and there are some situations where it is not possible for support staff such as ourselves to deliver information. In this instance, we offer sessions to race engineers to deliver a moderated form of sport psychology service, as the first point of contact for the driver in crucial and often pressured situations.
