I am studying the impact of mental imagery upon motivation in sporting performance, both for aspiring and elite athletes. I am applying Functional Imagery Training with athletes from Plymouth Studio School, the University of Plymouth Sporting Excellence Scholars, Plymouth Argyle, and Team GB - the British Olympic athletes. By motivating athletes to persist in the face of setbacks I hope to enhance their resilience and help them excel.
