More About Madalyn

Madalyn completed her undergraduate studies at Macquarie University, completing a Bachelor of Science in Psychology in 2019 and a Graduate Diploma in Psychology at Western Sydney University in 2020. She joined Condor Performance as a provisional psychologist in 2021 and completed her 4+2 pathway to full registration under the guidance of our growing team of board-approved supervisors.

As a teenager, Madalyn competed at a National level in swimming. Her main events included the 50m, 100m and 200m Freestyle, 100 Backstroke and 100m and 200m Butterfly, medalling at the State level and travelling around the country for competitions. 

Martial Arts has also been a big part of her life. Madalyn has trained in various disciplines, including American Kenpo Karate (10 years), Han Mu Do (2 years) and Muay Thai/Kickboxing (since 2017). While studying at university, she became a Han Mu Do instructor. More recently, Madalyn has been an active competitive Kickboxer, competing in Kick-Light and K1 bouts. She feels it is important to test her abilities in the ring using her training in Performance Psychology. 

An Inspiring Young Performance Psychologist

Madalyn is passionate about improving performance through psychological practice and research. For her Honours thesis, she examined how fighters use kinematic cues to anticipate their opponent’s next attack. This research contributes to the growing literature on movement perception in competitive and non-competitive settings. 

Throughout her time as a competitive athlete, Madalyn has seen firsthand how one’s mental state can impact their performance. She pursued a career in performance psychology because of the strong and growing evidence for psychological flexibility in improving well-being and performance. She is passionate about working with athletes and non-athletes of all ages, arming them with the knowledge and skills to overcome mental barriers and achieve their goals.
