At Friesen Sport & Performance Psychology we help athletes and other performers achieve new levels of excellence by turning the latest science into practical and easy to understand strategies and techniques.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help athletes and others who are serious about success. We do this through one-on-one in-person (from Niagara to Oakville) and phone/webcam consultation. We also offer seminars & workshops to groups (businesses, specialized conferences, and elite sports clubs) on topics related to productivity, peak performance, and performance enhancement.

Friesen Sport & Performance Psychology we primarily offer sport & performance psychology services to serious athletes from Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe region (Niagara to Oakville). We also focus on helping high achievers (e.g., athletes, executives, entrepreneurs, academics, writers) achieve goals and improve their performance and productivity. We do this by leveraging the latest research from sport/performance psychology, executive coaching, and cognitive neuroscience. We offer coaching, consulting, and workshops to high-achieving individuals and businesses looking to maximize personal and professional potential.

The vast majority of Olympic and professional athletes have access to a sport psychologist or mental skills coach. We specialize in working with professional and elite athletes who are serious about taking their game to the next level. We also work with other high-level performers and high achievers (e.g., actors, musicians, executives, entrepreneurs, academics, writers, etc.). We incorporate the latest science from sport and performance psychology and cognitive neuroscience. We provide sport and performance psychology services to athletes in Ontario’s Golden Horseshoe region (Niagara Falls, St. Catharines, Grimsby, Hamilton, Burlington, Milton, Oakville). We also provide the same services to those outside of this region via telephone/internet.

We offer athletes a highly personalized approach unique to their circumstances and goals.

Our work begins with a customized assessment to gain a clear picture of the athlete’s:

Knowledge and use of mental skills
Personality, values, other factors or skills important to achievement of goals
After the assessment, Dr. Friesen works one-on-one with the athlete either in person, by phone, or via Skype/video call. The focus is on helping the athlete or high achiever achieve their stated goals and improve performance.
