About

Dr Patsy Tremayne is a Performance Psychologist, having worked with many
of Australia's top performers in a variety of fields.

Patsy was the Psychology Coordinator for the NSW Institute of Sport for many years. She was also an AFL Players Association psychology consultant, a psychologist for the Australian team at the World University Games, and the psychologist for the National Women’s Water Polo team for the 2004 Olympic Games.

 

Working in her own sport psychology private practice, Patsy specializes in performance enhancement for medical hospital registrars and consultants, elite athletes, airline pilots, corporate executives, and performing artists, such as professional dancers, singers, musicians and stage performers. She regularly gives workshops and conference presentations in Sydney and interstate for medical exam candidates and consultants in a variety of medical disciplines. She also regularly presents at international conferences on her work with people who have to practice under pressure to perform on demand.

Patsy is an Adjunct Associate Professor in psychology at the Western Sydney University, and was director of the only accredited postgraduate sport psychology program in NSW from 1998 to 2005. Her private practice has always directly influenced her lecturing, her research, and her presentations, and vice versa.  In fact, because she wanted to do research with ballroom dancers, she commenced ballroom dancing in 2001, and is now one of the leading Masters level dancers in Pro-Am Ballroom and New Vogue events in the country. An added advantage to being a competitive dancer is that she can give to clients her practical and up-to-date knowledge of how the brain works optimally when performing under pressure.

As one of Australia’s senior sport psychologists, and as the first female sport psychologist in the country, she has made contributions to scientific, regulatory and professional bodies. She is a foundation member and former Executive Committee Member of the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Sport and Exercise Psychologists (CSEP), and was Chairperson of the NSW CSEP for several years. In 2007 she received an Award of Distinction from the Australian Psychological Society for services to sport and exercise psychology. She is an accredited supervisor with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency, which enables her to mentor young psychologists entering the field.
