The Performance Enhancement & Stress Reduction (PESR) Practitioner course teaches individuals how to take control of and improve personal performance and well-being, in themselves and in others. This course appeals to three types of individuals: those interested in their own self development; those wanting to establish a lucrative career as a PESR practitioner; and those individuals who currently work to improve the performance and well-being of others, such as those who provide stress management coach training, personal trainers, life coaches, mentors, clinical and non-clinical therapists, holistic practitioners, educators, etc.

Many people have limited or no knowledge and understanding of performance based mind management. The performance enhancement stress reduction practitioner course is focused on teaching how to develop and maintain performance based thinking, through effective mind management techniques that can be put into practice by anyone. Many people suffer from limiting beliefs, unhelpful thinking patterns and problem based mental focusing, which restricts and prevents future success and can lead to psychological disturbance, like anxiety and depression. Through tried and tested, research backed therapeutic mind management techniques, these obstacles to enhanced performance can be overcome, leading an individual to improve their rate of success, to be able to increase and achieve higher potential, to be more confident and in control, to reduce psychological disturbance and generally experience a greater feeling of physical and mental well-being.
