10/25/19 - Exciting News
We are very excited to announce the new affiliation with the Boston Imperials Hockey Club, a new, dynamic, and exciting hockey program. This program takes a wholistic approach in student-athlete development.
Specifically they believe "Hockey is a tough sport for parents and players to navigate. We promise our program will prepare your child to be an effective player AND student, with all the tools and information needed to make informed decisions about your future. Our goal is to help develop players to the highest level they can achieve so that when they are done playing, at whatever level they are at, they are prepared for life and career beyond the ice." - Boston Imperials Website
This is a great philosophy and something that Peak Mental Performance Coaching, LLC strongly advocates as well. Dr. Flynn will be serving as a Mental Performance Coach for the program supporting athletes, parents, coaches, and program directors to help them fulfill this message. We are excited to see where this connection can go now and in the future. Dr. Flynn will be leading a seminar in November for players and parents on managing anxiety during the tryout process.
Also an additional side note we have spoken recently to TrainerMD who Dr. Flynn has also joined their advisory board. It was a great conversation and we are hoping for even more positive announcements regarding this relationship in the near future.
10/8/19 - Back To Reality
With the end of summer and start of fall it is time to get back to reality. School is session, sport seasons have started, and for many stress is up. Busy start for us as well, but we are ready to go to make this a good year for our clients. Also we recently spoke to Rob Day, a great goalie coach, and also a founder of Sports Science Solutions. His company helps maximize athlete performance, and we are hoping to continue to develop a relationship with him. We have also recently given a talk on the benefits of a Sport Psychologist for the staff at Mike Boyle's Sports Club, a training facility that works with many top athletes. It was a lot of fun and we are thankful for the opportunity. Finally, still working on making connections with multiple primary care offices. Somewhere in the midst of all that we have already begun working with many new and exciting clients with many different mental health challenges.
8/1/19 - The Dog Days Of Summer
It is exciting to say that we are coming up on the one year anniversary in early August of the combination of my Clinical and Sport / Educational practices under one roof. Amazing how time flies but it has been a great year.
So far it has been a relatively relaxing summer despite still being very busy with clients, including many new ones. It has been a much needed one given a very hectic end of the school year.
We did manage to meet up at Athletic Evolution and talk to many local high school athletes and teams to discuss the field of Sport Psychology and benefits to athletes. I'd like to send a big thank you to Scott and the many other coaches there for helping with the process and also letting me watch the great work they do. Hoping to be back soon.
There are a few other potential meetings and new things to announce, but too soon to make anything official and public, but stay tuned for the future. Otherwise we hope you are enjoying your summer and getting ready for fall rush.
However, before the rush we will be taking our own vacation as even we need a break at times. We will be out of the office from Aug 2 through the 11th, back to work on the 12th. As a result there will be delay getting back to new clients and contacts until the office reopens. But rest assured we will get back to you.
We are available to our current clients as always in case of an emergency.
June 4, 2019 - Summer Transition
It was a busy May and looking to be a busy summer as well. We met with Athletic Evolution to prepare for spending more time there over the summer. For the third straight year we will be speaking at their intern training seminar. While at AE we met with Julie Hubbard, who is a new physical therapist at AE, but also the founder of Just4KicksBoston. Her organization specializes in ACL injuries, rehab, and back to sport, and is our newest affiliation.
Later in May, we also met with Trainer MD, to continue to develop our relationship as an advisor to their company. Hoping for bigger news in that area as time goes on.
I happened to find a little time to read a great book, The Playmakers Advantage by Dr. Leonard Zaichkowsky and Daniel Peterson. This book discusses many theories on mental toughness in sports, but the concepts can be applied anywhere. Although I am biased as Dr. Zaichkowsky was one of my doctoral project readers, I highly recommend it.
Finally, my office mates and I hosted many local providers with different specialties which was a great success and will continue to add to our growing list of resources and connections. We are getting ready for summer, though still very busy growing the practice, having met with many new clients recently, but also looking forward to a nice relaxing summer. If you are interested in learning more or becoming a connection feel free to reach out.
