We measure mental toughness and provide tools, techniques, and interventions from the disciplines of sport psychology and mindfulness to enable you to develop mental toughness and help you respond more effectively under pressure. Mental toughness is a significant factor in enhancing performance, creating wellbeing, and developing positive behaviors.

What We Do

MindTough™ Assessment

Research has proposed four key components of mental toughness called the 4 Cs. We are able to assess mental toughness in terms of these 4 Cs in individuals and groups through the MTQ48 which is a unique 48-item high-quality psychometric assessment. It is a normative measure which enables users to assess mental toughness before and after an event such as a training & development or coaching program. The MTQ48 provides a highly effective and user friendly set of reports designed for optimum impact in a wide range of scenarios.

MindTough™ Athletes

We provide online training in mental toughness and mindfulness to help you enhance performance, build ambition, increase wellbeing and develop a positive mindset. We also create and deliver in-person mental toughness and mindfulness workshops for sports teams at high school, college and professional levels and provide one-on-one mental skills coaching.

What is Mental Toughness?

Mental toughness is, "a personality trait which determines, in some part, how individuals perform when exposed to stressors, pressure and challenge .... irrespective of the situation" (Clough & Strycharczyk, 2011). Mental toughness describes the mindset we adopt in everything we do and is closely related to qualities such as character, resilience, and grit. Studies consistently demonstrate links between mental toughness and performance, the adoption of positive behaviors, and wellbeing. In the workplace, mentally tough individuals show greater commitment to setting and achieving goals and targets, they respond more positively to challenge, they deal with adversity and setbacks with greater confidence, and have a stronger sense of being able to control their ability to achieve. They are better at prioritizing their workloads and focus on continuous improvement and achieving their best.

What is Mindfulness?

Mindfulness, “means paying attention in a particular way; on purpose, in the present moment, and non-judgmentally” (Jon Kabat-Zinn). It is a state of active, open attention on the present. When you're mindful, you observe your thoughts and feelings from a distance, without judging them good or bad. In mindfulness we’re concerned with noticing what’s going on right now so instead of letting your life pass you by, mindfulness means living in the moment and being awake to experiences.

Studies have shown that practicing mindfulness, even for just a few weeks, can bring a variety of benefits, including an increase in positive emotions while reducing negative emotions and stress. Mindfulness helps us focus. Studies suggest that mindfulness helps us tune out distractions and improves our memory and attention skills. Mindfulness training makes us more likely to help someone in need and increases activity in neural networks involved in understanding the suffering of others and regulating emotions. There’s scientific evidence that teaching mindfulness in the classroom reduces behavior problems and aggression among students, and improves their happiness levels and ability to pay attention. Teachers trained in mindfulness also show lower blood pressure, less negative emotion and symptoms of depression, and greater compassion and empathy.
