Abstract: Sports psychology ideally wants to be part of your everyday training so that you work on your mental toughness without really knowing it. For this reason at Condor Performance we provide services to coaches as well as athletes / performers. A qualified sport psychologist / performance psychologist can work with anyone wanting to improve their performance. Many of the mental skills we use to help our athletes work just as well for performing artists, dancers, musicians and even those whose performance is their work. In other words, people often worry when they perceive an upcoming event as being “aversive, likely, imminent, and resource demanding”. Thus, a central feature of worry is that it is generally future-oriented, implying that it is focused upon anticipated threat. Worry is frequently cited as a component of “cognitive interference,” which efers to a class of cognitions that are intrusive, unwanted, undesirable, and at times disturbing to the individual.
