Sport Psychology with Jessica

Jessica O’Kelly - Performance Psychology Coach
Before training as a Sport and Performance Psychologist, I started my professional career in 2016 working in forensic and Child and Adolescent Mental health services delivering individual and group psychological interventions.
My unique journey has shaped my practice where my experience has provided me with a sophisticated skill set and psychological grounding to identify and challenge maladaptive thinking and behaviour in a range of clients.
Applying these skills in athletic and high-performance settings has created a unique and highly effective approach. With my support you get the best of both worlds, with the combined effect of clinical tools merged with scientifically proven techniques that enhance performance. I empower my clients to develop sustainable cycles of functioning to optimise performance and enhance wellbeing.
