Mental preparation consists of preparing an athlete (or a team) for a competition (s). The objective is to train both the strong points and the points to be improved of the athlete in order to be ideally prepared: concentration, confidence in his abilities, motivation, stress and pressure management, communication,… I also make sure to motivate, if necessary for a healthy lifestyle (diet, sleep, etc.), necessary for physical performance and health, but which also has an impact on the mind
For individual monitoring, several sessions are necessary (around 5 sessions initially, generally between 5 and 10). I also support long-term athletes.
I set specific goals adapted to each individual and set up a program to strengthen qualities and improve weak points. I preferably work in collaboration with the coach and the technical and physical staff.
In particular, I use cognitive-behavioral techniques, mental imagery, mindfulness meditation applied to sport, or sophrology.
