Workshop - Dr. Sue Wilson

Peak Performance Master Class
Dr. Vietta Sue Wilson
2-day Workshop
25 April | 26 April

In this 2-day sports master class, Dr. Wilson shares a wealth of knowledge and experience garnered over her career in sport psychology.

Dr. Wilson will focus on the commonalities of having to perform when under pressure - be it a critical decision at work, a competitive event or a life challenge.  She will review the basic psychophysiological assessment and transfer skills she has acquired across a lifetime that have been applied to Olympic champions, business executives, counselling clients and individuals facing terminal cancer, such as:

  • What attitude (of the coach and client) is most productive? 
  • What psychophysiological modality has the most impact (emg, eda, hr, hrv, temperature)? 
  • What brain state is most disruptive or facilitative of performance: focus, anxiety, busy brain? 
  • What coaching style and practical skills beyond your office can benefit your clients? 

She will introduce three daily practice skills (think, breathe, image) and will discuss simple takeaways from helping people perform.  In addition, some of the 'miracle cures' and 'fabulous flops' will be shared.
