I am heavily involved with Hutchison Vale Football Club. I play in the Premier League of Scotland with the ladies team. Please visit the website: http://hutchisonvaleladies.com. Home games are played at Saughton Enclosure, Edinburgh. I have been providing weekly performance psychology groups to the team including various sport psychology components e.g. performance profiling, goal setting, using strengths, positive self talk, team building, visualisation, relaxation, optimal performance states etc. The players have been engaging and positive throughout the sessions, and I feel they have really grown in confidence and self awareness. There seems to be more open communication between the team, and players are much more able to maintain composure when stressed in games which we are still working hard on. Keep up the great work girls.
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment. Buddha

You can clutch the past so tightly to your chest that it leaves your arms too full to embrace the present. ~Jan Glidewell
Whilst participating in sport, in training, in everyday life, concentrate on being there; being your best, and enjoying the moment! The here and now!
