A key goal is to optimize your functioning and performance.
Anxiety has an interesting relationship to performance. People with no anxiety, function and perform less well, or even more poorly.
Performance gets better with anxiety, but only up to a point.
When anxiety becomes too high, performance decreases.
The bell-shaped curve (from Yerkes–Dodson) shows how performance increases with mild to moderate anxiety and then decreases with high anxiety.
Our strategy is to help you find the right amount of emotional arousal to optimize your performance. Then to help you maintain top performance.
