Not sure if you need therapy or performance consultation?
If you’ve read descriptions for both therapy and performance consultation and feel unsure which might be the right fit, that you might need or want “both,” or that you fall somewhere in between psychotherapy and performance consultation, you’re not alone.
It is common for clients to come to a session with one problem/goal in mind, and for other issues to come up during our discussion. Similarly, clients may present with personal issues, like anxiety and insomnia, as well as a performance goal, like training for a triathalon.
For example, I provide services to athletes struggling with personal and mental health issues that are inferring with athletic performance. With these clients, we begin by determining your goals and priorities, and if the services I alone provide may be the right fit.
In some cases they are, but in others, it has been helpful for a client to see a mental health specialist or some other helping professional in addition to seeing me for performance consultation to ensure that all goals are being addressed in the most effective way possible.
