In this talk Ana will explore the importance of the mental side of performance and consider how sport psychologists work with professional athletes. In particular, Ana will draw upon her experiences working at the professional tennis academy ‘Barcelona Total Tennis’ and Southampton Football Club.

This talk is aimed at anyone (be they athletes, coaches, officials, students looking at studying in this arena or parents) interested in understanding what sport psychologists actually do to enhance performance.
