Improving human potential in sport, business and education with EMDR

Description

'Mental Fitness' has nothing to do with a killer instinct or ruthless play. Rather it is a precise way of thinking and acting under stress. Consider top athletes: do words like cold, callous and insensitive accurately describe their competitive performance? Hardly. Much more accurate words are flexible, responsive, strong and resilient. The difference in 'winning' is as much in technical and physical ability/potential than in mental performance. Top athletes recognize that to be at their best, they must think their best. To perform at an optimum level under high pressure (the same for top manager, musician, fire fighters...), they need to keep their ability to make choice at every moment.

EMDR and other techniques can help them (others tools also presented: Goal setting, Self-talk, Relaxation techniques, Imagery, Rituals.)
