Psychological Capital Group is headed up by Sarah Steventon.
Sarah is a Psychotherapist, with a background in Neuroscience. She is a specialist in neuropsychology and psychopathology.
Sarah works with individuals to who need to make high stake decisions in high pressure situations, to achieve mental resilience and peak brain performance. Improving the ability to manage stress, regulate emotions, and retain information.
These individuals generally work in sectors that face unusual levels of stress - Banking, Finance, Private Equity, VC, Legal and Tech.
The majority of high-achieving individuals know where they want to be, and what they want to achieve - they don't require traditional or standard coaching methodologies.
This unique style of working utilises the combination of Neuropsychology in tandem with neuroplasticity to achieve peak performance.
Brain plasticity, known as 'Neuroplasticity', is a term that refers to the brain's ability to change, adapt and rewire itself. Neuro refers to neurons, the nerve cells that are the building blocks of the brain and nervous system, and plasticity refers to the brain's malleability.
The human brain has around 86 billion neurons. Early researchers believed that neurogenesis, or the creation of new neurons, stopped shortly after birth, today however we know that the brain possesses the remarkable capacity to reorganise pathways, create new connections, and in some cases, even create new neurons—a concept called neuroplasticity, or brain plasticity.
The brain is continually adapting and change - this is how we learn new skills, information, language etc
We can use this phenomenon to regulate emotion, which in turn optimises brain function to operate more effectively. When emotions are regulated, you gain clarity, increase creativity and improve cognitive ability.
With this powerful work we can create new neural pathways that allow a chosen response to any given situation - obviously particularly useful when you work in high pressure environments!
At speed we can build confidence, remove ‘Imposter Syndrome’, create more self-belief, dissolve anxiety, or overcome self-limiting beliefs - essentially removing any blocks that get in the way of achieving future goals and ultimately your success.
This gives any individual a truly competitive advantage.
Research also shows that positively-wired brains can boost productivity by up to 31%, and are three times more creative than negatively wired ones. Several clients have likened this work to the film 'Limitless'.
At every point results can be felt instantly.
Tangible differences are immediately obvious and continue to show through into daily lives.
Previous clients testify to the impact not only on their performance, but also on their bottom line.
Sarah partners with organisations on a temporary or on-going basis, working in-house as a Corporate Therapist, giving the team access to sessions at a frequency that suits the need.
Working with organisations who want to gain the advantage and create optimal human functioning to create consistent performance.
A Psychotherapist, or Performance Coach as some organisations like to position it with their teams, can have a profound impact and enables individuals to function at their peak.
Talented people can only do their best when they feel their best.
it is the people that make the difference in any business.
Sessions can take place on-site or at Psychological Capital's consulting rooms in Warwick or Central London.
