Why Sports Psychology?
While athletes focus on developing their physical abilities to excel in their sport, many neglect conditioning their mindset, which is the vital ingredient between good and great athletes.
”The most important attribute a player must have is mental toughness.”
Indicators that an athlete would benefit from working with a sports psychologist:
Wanting to gain the mental edge
Desire to get recruited for the sport (college or professional)
Trouble moving past mistakes/errors
Dealing with an injury and not wanting to lose their competitive edge
Performing better in practice versus competition
Trouble getting along with coach or teammates
Getting stuck “in their head”
Difficulty controlling emotions and stress
Struggling with playing at their highest potential
Despite its vital impact on performance, most athletes do not get the mental training needed to truly excel. That’s where sports psychology comes in.
Benefits of working with an effective sports psychologist include:
Gaining your mental edge, regardless of what is happening
Improving your athletic performance
Healing during an injury
Cultivate coping skills to manage emotions and stress
Getting into “the Zone” more frequently
Enjoying the sport more
Overcoming mistakes more quickly and moving forward
Peak performance during competitions
Being a better teammate
