WELCOME TO GUNNING MENTAL PERFORMANCE
My name is Scott Gunning and I am a Trainee Sport and Exercise Psychologist. Having been involved in sport since a young age I came to realise that the mental side of training and competing is often overlooked despite it being so vital to performance. Therefore, after completing both a BSc and MSc in Sports Psychology, I set up Gunning Mental Performance as a way of helping to provide accessible sports psychology to a range of athletes, regardless of ability. I seek to work from a 'client-centred approach' putting you, as the athlete, at the centre of the work and tailoring my services to your needs.
Outside of running Gunning Mental Performance, I am currently an athlete myself, competing predominantly in the 200m and 400m. I am also a fan of Chelsea FC, Formula 1, Star Wars and Marvel.
WHAT IS SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY?
Sport Psychology concerns the teaching of psychological skills and techniques to help aid sporting performance. Many people assume that there needs to be a 'problem' to go and see a sports psychologist, but this couldn't be further from the truth. In fact, sports psychology techniques are now utilised by many of the worlds best sporting stars.
Some of the areas that sports psychology can help with include:
Improving goal setting
Learning new skills
Aiding with injury recovery
Enhancing overall performance
