What is Sport and Performance Psychology? Sport   and   Performance   Psychology   examines   how   mental   states   affect   overall   performance.   It   is used   by   individuals   or   teams   to   help   reach   their   optimal   levels   of   performance.   Individual   and group   sessions   teach   mental   skills   to   assist   with   focus,   concentration,   goal   setting,   confidence, relaxation,   routines,   visualization,   controlling   stress,   fear   and   energy   along   with   leadership   skills and   communication.   It   can   also   be   helpful   in   addressing   other   issues   such   as   life   balance, transitioning to different levels of performance and competition and retirement.  We   also   understand   that   athletes   may   experience   unique   concerns   in   and   outside   of   sport.      A sport   psychologist   can   work   with   the   individual   to   address   these   concerns   including   retirement, burnout,    lack    of    motivation,    injury    rehabilitation,    disordered    eating,    substance    abuse    and personal identity.
Sports   psychology   can   also   address   team   building,   team   culture   and   communication.   The   sport   psychologist   can   play   a   role   in   consulting   with   coaches,   parents, organizations and athletes to facilitate development of youth athletes along with educating others involved. Performance   plans   are   tailored   to   the   individual   so   athletes   and   performers   from   all   ages   and   all   levels   of   sport   and   performance   can   benefit   from   elite   to recreational levels. They are designed to give you the competitive edge and make you a better, mentally strong and well-rounded athlete/performer.
