Neuropsychology for peak performance

Many high-achieving and high-profile people already employ coaches and personal trainers to support their life and work goals.

Sarah works with unique combination of neuropsychology and neuroplasticity that achieves peak brain performance.

This happens by creating new neural pathways that allow her client to respond differently to any given situation, in particular high pressure environments.

This regulates their emotions, which in turn optimises brain function to operate more effectively.

Sarah works closely with each client to ensure she understands their objectives and priorities.

Whether the desired outcome is to build confidence, remove ‘Imposter Syndrome’, create more self-belief, dissolve anxiety or anger, or just an improve overall sense of clarity and calm.

At every point the results can be felt instantly. Tangible differences are immediately obvious for the client and continue to show through into daily lives.

Previous clients testify to the impact not only on their performance, but also on the bottom line.

Sessions can be delivered via video call, or face-to-face.

Public Speaking

Your fear of public speaking is purely down to a pattern that has been created in a specific part of the brain.

For some clients, this imprint takes place during their formative years, typically as a result of an uncomfortable rush of adrenaline when for example, they are asked to read in front of a class at school. This has happened to over 75% of the population, which is why it is the number one phobia/fear in the UK, and has been for several years.

As a result of the fear experienced in that moment, the unconscious mind creates an early warning system to protect us. This system is constantly looking for similar circumstances and when recognised, the unconscious tries to protect us through the use of our autonomic nervous system, i.e. our fight and flight response.

For other clients, after years of confident speeches and presentations, the fear and anxiety suddenly starts to develop and quickly takes hold, and this can be a truly frightening experience.

Typically this occurs when an individual is extremely stressed and that stress peaks during a meeting or presentation. At that moment the unconscious mind is pattern matching back to an event that caused distress in the past...sometimes 20 years ago.

Consciously trying to control a fear of public speaking can be extremely difficult and often ends up making matters worse, and this is because what we focus on we tend to amplify, so trying to think our way out of fear typically leads to us increasing the symptoms.

Then all too often the unconscious starts to widen the criteria for raising the alarm; thus what starts as a fear of presentations can often morph into a fear of smaller or less formal meetings and one to ones.

This is relatively simple to resolve and can usually be sorted in one session.
