What are the Benefits?

Mental Performance Consulting has a vast array of benefits related to mental health and wellness. This practice can provide clients with a deeper sense of self, clarity in their decision-making or desired paths, coping strategies to maintain mental health and balance, develop stronger connections with others, and more. Mental Performance Consulting provides clients with the tools necessary to reach their desired outcomes, whether that be professionally, intellectually, or holistically.

What to Expect in a Session?

Clients can expect interactive, creative, and in-depth one-on-one sessions. Prior to the first session, clients will complete an intake form. The first session is used to determine the mental skill areas the client would like counselling in. The counsellor and client will work together to determine the psychological skills training program in terms of how many sessions and what will be accomplished in each. Clients can expect the counsellor to take notes, use whiteboards, voice recorders, media, and other mediums to implement the client’s needs.
