My philosophy of practice is that the client is the expert on him or herself. Through observation and proper rapport building, I can gather the necessary information to assist the client with his or her presenting challenges to optimal performance. I believe that it is my role as a consultant to provide the tools for the client to enhance their mental performance skills, however, it is up to them to personalize the tools. I feel it is important for the client to take the tools one step further and help him or her figure out ways to use them in all aspects of his or her life.
