Program for Athletes
The one-on-one program at CGP is athlete centric, yet individualized based on their pursuit of success and characteristics that make them extraordinary. The approach focuses on bridging the gap between external and internal prosperity. This allows the client to overcome professional and/or personal obstacles without destroying the success they have created. The final results are longer careers, positive peer and management relations, maturation with the media, fan appreciation, healthy romantic relationships, and best of all, a genuine approach to life with a strong sense of self.
Times Have Changed
The athlete of today is surrounded by numerous challenges as they attempt to thrive in their trade. It has become apparent that many athletes are not given the emotional supports and tools to overcome the increasing environmental stressors. As a result, human performance and well-being becomes negatively influenced. The traditional models of human performance or sports psychology have often focused on the removal of negative emotions or thoughts. Contrary to this model, research has suggested that these thoughts and the manifested behaviors inevitably return, and at times with more severity.
CGP utilizes an acceptance based approach, focusing the individual on emotional reaction to the stimuli or stressor by becoming self aware of the discomfort and how it relates to an individuals personal development and performance in their profession. The goal is to develop awareness, to re-write a positive script by changing the patterns through acceptance and understanding (displacing old dysfunctional - negative behaviors and decisions).
