A rapidly growing field of psychology, performance psychology aims to help individuals improve their functioning levels from "everyday to elite." Different from traditional psychology or therapy, certified performance psychology consultants leverage a constantly growing database of cutting edge research to promote optimal human performance in fields such as the performing arts, sport, business and other diverse performance domains. Performance psychology provides resources that can impact everyone within the field of performance; at Ascend we specialize in creating a performance psychology based program tailored to meet the unique needs of yourself or your organization.
