The Olympic Games have a rich history and attraction, and are certainly a quintessential and worthy goal to motivate any athlete (or sport psychologist for that matter!) in their performance and training.  How well have you thought about and documented your steps (goals) to making it happen?  Putting more effort into your planning and review means greater visualisation and experience of your success and a consequent increase in confidence.

Possessing a good preparation and performance routine gives you familiarity when you are overseas in a new environment with different food, strange atmospheric conditions and foreign languages.   These routines instil confidence in your ability, reduce anxiety, and clear your focus.  In short, it readies you to compete with confidence in any environment.

I worked with Warrick for 10-months leading up to the Beijing Paralympic Games, at this time I needed help with dealing with stress and managing the expectations I faced.

Over this time Warrick helped me develop strategies around time management and realistic goal setting… He taught me useful visualisation techniques and imagery, which we recorded on my phone so I could access it anytime I needed reassurance, I found this most helpful, also the Mount Cook metaphor helped me overcome the challenges and hurdles I faced.

I was initially sceptical and found some of the sessions difficult but feel, without a doubt that these sessions benefited me hugely and improved my performance leading up to and at the Paralympic Games.

I credit Warrick with helping me medal at the Paralympics, I would recommend him to anyone who needs help in reaching their full potential or who needs help in overcoming hurdles that they face.

I developed some great strategies and habits which I still use today not just in my sport but in all areas of my life.
