Ilé Schutte: Director & Registered Psychologist

“We can all make the world a better place through the moment-to-moment decisions we make as we interact with people.” ― Morton Shaevitz

I am particularly interested in the interactional patterns and styles of individuals as well as the effects of communication. As a human being it is impossible to NOT communicate – everything we do communicates a message, even if we are completely oblivious of the messages we are communicating. As individuals we do not only interact with family, friends, partners and colleagues, we also interact with ourselves internally as well as our environments externally. The psychology of performance, whether in business or sport, is greatly influenced by our interactions with ourselves, others and our environment.
I enjoy private practice work, as well as working with athletes to improve performance. I did my Masters degree on sport performance and find the broader field of performance psychology very interesting.

Lauren Leon: Director & Registered Psychologist

“A hero is an ordinary person who finds strength to preserve and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles” –Christopher Reeve

By phrasing problems in solution terms, you are preparing for the next step and you are forcing your mind to focus on outcome, instead of remaining stuck on what may seem like an insurmountable challenge. Within therapy, business and performance the aim is to walk with the individual, group and/or company helping to facilitate change where needed so that they reach their desired outcomes. Because individuals, groups and companies are all different, the change process will be tailor-made for specific needs.
I did my MA research on sport performance, focusing on athlete’s abilities to perform in discomfort. Since then my interest in performance has grown to all performance contexts – individual personal performance, business performance, academic performance and sport performance. My PhD will be in the area of business performance.
