“Every once in a while, I run the Olympic downhill in Japan in my head. I think of how the energy is going to flow and then I make it all work for myself.”

Imagery is a powerful method of performance enhancement. From gymnasts and ski jumpers imagining complex routines, to footballers picturing the success of their penalty kicks and golfers visualising the perfect drive off the ‘sweet spot’. Likewise, in the creative arts the best use of imagery can improve a performer’s ability to focus, recall scripts and become completely absorbed in the nature of their performance. Teams also use imagery to maximise their performance; fast jet display teams use imagery in their ground-based group rehearsals to ensure each and every synchronised manoeuvre is executed with absolute precision. Imagery has the potential to enable performers from any field and discipline, to refine their techniques and confidently overcome barriers to success.

If you’re interested in the application of imagery to enhance or rehabilitate performance in sport, the creative arts or even to inspire success within your work force, then this event is for you. The day will develop your understanding and ability to use imagery as a practitioner or a performer. You will be provided with the skills to apply successful imagery techniques that are proven to help performers reach and maintain their full potential.

This event will be led by Maddison Coaching’s Academic Supervisor and Senior Practitioner Dr Jo Batey (BASES Chartered Scientist in Sports Psychology).

An accompanying webinar will be produced by Maddison Coaching’s Sports Performance Director Ben Erridge who specialises in working with sports performers with learning difficulties and physical disability.
