Psychotherapist For High Achievers Anxiety & Stress Expert Specialist in Extreme Pressure Environments London & Birmingham

Neuropsychology Coaching

Many high-achieving and high-profile people already employ coaches and personal trainers to support their life and work goals.

The majority of high-achieving individuals know where they want to be, and what they want to achieve - so they don't require traditional coaching or the standard coaching methodologies.

This is not traditional coaching, and it is not just talking.

This is utilising a unique combination of Neuropsychology and Neuroplasticity to achieve peak brain performance.

This happens by creating new neural pathways that allow a chosen response to any given situation, in particular high pressure environments.

By regulating emotion, which in turn optimises brain function to operate more effectively, because when you regulate emotions you gain clarity, you increase creativity and improve cognitive ability.

Working closely with each client to ensure a complete understanding of objectives and priorities.

Whether the desired outcome is to build confidence, remove ‘Imposter Syndrome’, create more self-belief, dissolve anxiety, or overcome self-limiting beliefs - removing blocks to achieve future goals.

At every point the 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.

Sessions can be delivered via video call or face to face.


The Process

A corporate therapy session is similar to a private session.

Sarah partners with organisations on a temporary or on-going basis, working in-house at a frequency that suits the need.

Working with organisations who want to use neuropsychology to improve optimal human functioning to build a happier, healthier, more innovative and more productive business.

A Corporate Psychotherapist, or Performance Coach, as some organisations like to position it, can have a profound impact.

An in-house Therapist/ Performance Coach is there to keep the brilliant and ambitious individuals functioning at peak power.

It gives a competitive advantage. Research shows that positively-wired brains can boost productivity by up to 31% and are three times more creative than negatively wired brains.


Sports Performance

Many high-achieving sports professionals already employ coaches and personal trainers to support their mental game.

In general a sports Psychologist will usually work with you using a number of techniques including visualisation, NLP, CBT and other different techniques.

Sarah works with unique combination of neuropsychology and neuroplasticity that achieves peak brain performance.

This happens by creating new neural pathways that allow her client to respond differently to any given situation, in particular high pressure environments.

This regulates their emotions, which in turn optimises brain function to operate more effectively.

Sarah works closely with each client to ensure she understands their objectives and priorities.

Whether the desired outcome is to build confidence, remove ‘Imposter Syndrome’ or limiting self beliefs and values, create more self-belief, dissolve anxiety, improve focus and concentration or create the ability to control emotions in the key matches or 'big moments'.

At every point the results can be felt instantly. Tangible differences are immediately obvious for the client and continue to show through into daily lives.

Previous clients testify to the impact not only on their performance, but also on their personal life.

Sessions can be delivered via video call, or face-to-face.

If you are nervous, distracted, over-whelmed, over-thinking your game, unable to recover from mistakes, trying too hard or just lacking in confidence this gets you in the best mental state to get your personal best when it matters the most.


Anxiety In Sport

When things aren’t going your way, you can start to really feel the pressure, and maybe begin to experience a crisis in confidence. Once this happens it can be a slippery slope. The fear and anxiety increases, and this can have a huge impact on your game, and then unfortunately with the way the brain works, it becomes a vicious cycle.

In professional sport, the pressure is immense – and this is often not appreciated by others.

The pressure comes from both external and internal influences. External pressure, such as from the manger, other team members, your family, the fans. And internal pressure, which is often more significant, from you yourself.

And If you are a perfectionist, it can be absolute torture.

So how do you fix it – this is where I come in.

You will no doubt, already have a Performance Coach, who will work with you on some of these areas, but that will only be at a conscious level. So maybe just talking about how you feel. They may utilise techniques to help manage the pressure and the feelings – but obviously that is just ‘managing’ it - it won’t stop them actually happening.


'Fear' of losing, 'Fear' of looking stupid, 'Fear' that you aren't as good as you believe you are, ‘Fear of getting dropped’, ‘ Fear of messing up’, ‘Fear of failing’, so 'Fear' of letting people down - the common theme here is obvious.

Essentially everything negative in sport is driven by fear. If you don’t deal with it, it will lead to anxiety, and anxiety can spread to all areas of your life – it can start to take over, and cause real problems.

So this is where I come in. We work together and stop the anxiety and other issues in their tracks.

We work with the brain processes - and that is a really important distinction here, in that we are working with the brain, not the mind. It is all based on neuroscience, but it is actually quite simple to achieve when you know how.
