Véronique Boudreault | PhD | MPC, CSPA
I have a PhD in clinical psychology with a specialization in health and sport psychology from Laval University, Québec. I have been working as a Mental Performance Consultant with INS Quebec athletes and coaches since 2015. Through the years, I have worked in diverse sport and health contexts (high school, hospital, private practice) and with different populations (elite, student-athletes, cardiac patients). Being accustomed to working in collaboration with coaches, kinesiologists, physiotherapists, physicians, and nutritionists, I value being able to offer integrated support to my clients.
Through my education and experiences, I have developed a strong background in cognitive-behaviroal therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Within my clinical psychology practice, I have mainly worked with adults suffering from anxiety and mood disorders. I am currently a full-time substitute professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Québec in Trois-Rivières, Québec. In this position, I work as a clinical supervisor and teach CBT to doctoral students in clinical psychology. I am also conducting research projects aiming to better understand the performance and well-being of elite athletes.
Besides my professional activities, I maintain a healthy lifestyle and I am always searching for outdoor adventures to enjoy beautiful scenery and cultivate mindfulnesss. A former athlete in cross country skiing, track and field and mountain biking, I now enjoy these activities as my main hobbies, in addition to my yoga practice and love for backcountry snowboarding.
