Meet Elena, a sports psychologist, coach, and trainer on all things performance.
When we met, Elena was a full-time sports psychologist working with top athletes, specialising in tennis players. Elena, is Spanish, although lives in London, and has since gone through all levels of our training and now a facilitator on our programs.
“My main goal was to learn and to meet like minded people. I wanted to learn more about Flow. I want to be involved in a community and tribe to share and discuss about the topic.The Flow Centre seemed like the ideal platform to do this.”
“I had been passionate about Flow since I started studying performance related topics. During my Masters in Sport Psychology, I read Csikszentmihalyi’s book on flow and it sprked an enthusiasm for the subject. Ever since, I have been hungry to learn more”
“Flow was also highly relevant for my work. In my first job, I was surrounded by athletes. I was working in a high performance institute with 101 athletes from 32 different sports. I was very curious about how people find flow and how extreme sports athletes seem to find it easier to find flow. I wanted to learn what’s behind those types of athletes, and what helps them to perform so well considering the risk.”
“Why the Flow Centre? I guess it all started when I met Cam and he shared his vision and I just loved it, he was inspiring and he spent time listening to my ideas and I could see his passion about making the Flow Centre into an entity that can help others. There are so many great people behind the organistion, and so much hard work invested on making it happen that it just ‘flowed’.”
“Aghhh, there is so much! Meeting like minded people, listening to top performers and academics, and having the time to talk to them and ask them questions. Getting a very deep knowledge about the topic in a very practical way.”
“...Of course, a major impact has been learning many practical exercises for myself and to also put into practice with my clients. I use them all the time."
I was already working as a coach and very familiar with flow, but I was struggling to be the coach I knew I could be. I lacked a robust coaching framework and support system…Hear other stories
