I am a performance psychologist with over 15 years experience of helping students, athletes and business people maximise their personal resources to achieve peak performance. I offer a tailor made consultancy service for individuals or teams who want focussed guidance on how to achieve their ultimate goals.


We all have the capacity to develop ourselves and others professionally and personally. Professional sports and Olympic athletes use performance coaching to further their game; world leaders use advisors and mentors - in doing so and working on themselves, they become the best in the world. My philosophy for sport or business is "Compete. Win." Regardless of the economic climate, the arena for sport or business is always highly competitive, so you need to feel that you have your "best game" head on every day.  In my experience, the biggest difference between good performers and great performers is consistency...Performers go from good to great when they consistently achieve at high levels.


My philosophy for life is to maximise limited energy resources for the best possible outcome - to be efficient on the path to goal achievement, regardless of what that goal might be. My clients vary in many characteristics, but their commonality is their desire to improve their current situation; to be happier and more satisfied with their mental and physical health, relationships and careers.  Along the path of life, we all encounter decisions to be made.  My younger clients tend to look for coaching with their academic life - taking exams, improving motivation and revision strategies, career planning for after school.  Career planning doesn't stop after school either - there are plenty of times when we want to sit, review and re-set our goals for this life area.

Other clients have encountered situations resulting in having to deal with their mental demons on an everyday basis - and they want to live a happier life.  Sometimes, it's as brief as a decision to be made where an external, objective facilitator can take you through the process where you feel as satisfied as possible that the decision you have made the is right one for you.

I've used performance psychology philosophies and strategies to coach elite professionals in sport, university,      school, business and life. Contact me to find out how to put them to work for you too.


Sports testimonial

"Through the years I have worked with Miranda, she has helped me develop personally and professionally both on and off the field. Miranda has helped the team and I deal with many significant issues throughout her time at Queensland Rugby including change of head coaches, player suicides, team disharmony, leadership issues and team losses. Each player knew you could call on her at any time and she would drop anything to provide immediate assistance." Professional rugby player.



I wrote Fitter, Faster, Stronger, Smarter (FFSS) for my clients and radio listeners to have reference material on the coaching process that I use. Whether you're a sporting or corporate athlete, or wanting to coach the best in others, you'll find it an easy-to-read, systematic guide to performance enhancement. I am also working on my second book.
