Performance Psychology is an area which as sea paddlers we give little thought to. In the 10 years Roger has been running Coastal Spirit, performance anxiety, fear and loss of control are a couple of reasons why paddlers are unable to progress. With a clearer understanding, of whats going on and why we feel a certain way, we can develop coping strategies and have a better chance to control and manage our emotions better and hence our performance.
Performance psychology can help you to understand more, manage those emotions better and provide effective strategies to move forwards, with 'flow' and achieve your goals.
This is British Canoeing Intermediate module and counts towards Continued Professional development (CPD), with the three year coaching up-date.
"And I'm probably learning more from his mentoring now, as my paddling horizons expand, than ever before. I can't count how many questions I've asked... and he's answered. Roger has the knack of making that suggestion that radically changes your thinking and moves your paddling on in leaps and bounds."
"There are a number of wonderful things about Roger. He has a very light touch in his coaching, and he's always smiling and encouraging you to relax into the enjoyment of the day"
"I've just completed a two day 4* Sea kayak training course with Roger. Having been coached by Roger in the past, I choose to do this course with Roger because I knew I would get a great deal from the course. My expectations were certainly well and truly met"
