KIRSTEN PETERSON CONSULTING
Higher Performance. Happier Life.
I am an experienced performance psychologist, coach, and group process facilitator who can help you with effective and pragmatic strategies that will have you doing what you love better and living your life more fully.
I developed my passion for helping athletes, coaches, and teams reach their performance potential after a short-lived USA college softball career as a pitcher who lost the ability to throw strikes.
After a 22-year sport psychology career working in elite sport, through both the U.S. Olympic Committee and the Australian Institute of Sport, I have integrated my expertise and experience in performance psychology, mindfulness, and neuroscience to help people who are aspiring or struggling to reach their potential -- in sport, in business, in life.
My experience with elite athletes taught me that, even if you are gifted at what you do, you need more than talent and technical skill to thrive consistently in high-pressure, fast-paced environments. It is often said that what separates the very best in moments that matter lies "between the ears." In fact, evidence from the field of neuroscience clearly points to the importance of working with— not against — how your brain and mind function best. Last but not least, you will learn how to literally increase your happiness and lower your stress in the pursuit of excellence that is both sustainable and enjoyable.
