GETTING STARTED – Let’s BEGIN WITH A “STRATEGY SESSION”
Dr. Walker’s “Strategy Session” focuses on getting some basic yet necessary information on “how” you view your situation, what you’ve tried in the past, and how you’ve experienced success previously.
Whether you are an athlete or a performing artist, your view of your progress, strengths, and challenges are key. This brief ‘coaching session’ will help you get a good sense of how we might work together, and whether I have the right tools to help you get where you want to go. From this strategy session, we’ll talk about the next steps and how we can help you be your best.
This conversation enables us to review your particular circumstances, including many topics:
- Ability to manage stress
- Controlling your arousal level
- Focus and concentration
- Mental skills in performance
- Solution-focused assessment for athletes
- Goal setting
- Overcoming obstacles
- Understanding Previous successes
- Learning from Setbacks and failures
We often chat about the specific “Mental Skills” in Your Sport…
Sport Specific Assessments: golf, swimming, triathlon, tennis, baseball, softball, basketball, soccer, hockey, goaltending, football, cross-country, track and field, throwing events, gymnastics, target sports and combat (fencing, tennis, wrestling, boxing, MMA)
For many, this begins the conversation, for others, it is a pivotal experience. Equipped with the learning experience of thousands of assessments and a valuable database, I can help you develop a conscious awareness of how you execute your best. This is where a more comprehensive consultation can make a big difference.
“Athletes that are in control are unstoppable. Athletes that are out of control are unpredictable. Knowing where, when, and how to focus enables you to be your best.” Dr. Stephen Walker
