Adventure Psychology

Adventure Psychology is to go Knowingly into the Unknown

A leadership strategy that is suited, relevant and useful to organisations in the world of 2022 and beyond.

Most people will be familiar with Sport Psychology which is about incremental gains and peak performance in fixed conditions over a short period of time. Adventure Psychology builds enduring and resilient performance.

 Adventure Psychology prepares organisations and individuals to survive, cope and thrive during change, challenge and uncertainty. Helping you to prepare for the future – to go knowingly into the unknown.




Unique Methodology

Adventure Psychology is a mindset, a strategy, a skillset.

The Adventurer

Imagine working for 12 hours a day where the temperature is -40 degrees, twice as cold as your freezer. Imagine skiing uphill, into the wind, for 46 days pulling an 80kg sledge with severely frostbitten legs. Paddling 300 miles up the Mekong in a dugout canoe. Cycling across 14 countries. Living among the tribes of West Papua and Borneo. The list goes on!

From Skiing to the South Pole to Yacht Racing round-the-world, Paula has learned to develop the mindset to thrive and perform in the toughest of conditions.
