Helen Davis – Sports Psychology: What can it do for me?
Wednesday 22nd Feb, 7pm – 9pm
Anglia Ruskin University (Cambridge Campus)
In sport a lot of attention is devoted to the physical components of performance, yet have you ever considered what psychological skills could help you achieve the best physical performance? To be a better athlete does not necessarily mean you have to train harder or longer. It could mean that you need to address all the components that make up successful athletic performances- mental, as well as physical. Sport psychology can help improve performance, consistency, enjoyment and bring a competitive edge to your game.
The aim of the lecture is to explore how you think, feel and behave and how this can affect the way you perform. You will learn some cognitive skills and strategies that can help you maximize your potential, drawing upon theory and research with athletes.
Helen Davis is a Sport Psychology consultant who works with individuals, teams, clubs, coaches and schools through one-to-one sessions or interactive group workshops. She has a BA (Hons) in Psychology from Cardiff University and an MSc in Sport and Exercise Psychology from Staffordshire University. She is currently working towards British Psychological Society Chartership. Helen’s own sporting background lies in swimming. As a competitive swimmer, Helen competes regularly in masters and open water events, recently becoming National Age Group Champion in 100m breaststroke.
