We are extremely proud to announce our first online program: Power Up! Using performance psychology to perform/compete at your best. Below is sneak peak of the project.

This unique program, now available as an online program, is designed for children and young people aged 10 to 16 years who are or want to be involved in sports, music, performance or academics in a competitive way. By purchasing a workbook, participants will gain access to an information packed website with Animated tutorials designed to assist participants in completing the program independently or with the help of coaches or parents.

The program offers participants with the opportunity to develop a unique set of psychological skills to improve their performances and manage the demands of competition.

The Power Up! covers six core areas of psychological skills training. Each skill contributes to a performer’s ability to effectively manage the sustained effort required in training and practice, as well as the pressure environment of competition or performance. The program aims to ensure participants gain an understanding of the following core areas:

  • Goal Setting,
  • Self-Talk,
  • Imagery,
  • Focus and Attention Control
  • Arousal Regulation
  • Competition planning.

During two days next week, 10 young athletes from Illawarra Grammar  School in Wollongong will be lucky to participate in the Power Up! workshop by The Quirky Kid Clinic.

This activity-based workshop is designed for children and young people training and competing at club, regional, state and national level in their chosen sports, academic pursuits or the performing arts. The workshop explores an abundance of psychological skills and techniques practiced by Olympians, academics, prima ballerinas and musical soloists in order to compete at their very best. The workshop has been developed by psychologist Belinda Jones and incorporates her experience working with athletes at the Australian Institute of Sport.

Belinda Jones, a Quirky Kid Child Psychologist, will facilitate the workshop with the support from school staff!

The Power Up! is also offered in the clinical setting. Visit our workshop page to find out the next date. If you would like to arrange a workshop for high-performing students at your school, please contact us on 02 93 62 9297.
