Sport Psychology is not just for sports

The vast majority of our clients have been athletes.  High level performers who have high aspirations, push themselves to train hard for extended periods of time, and who sacrifice so much in their lives to achieve their goals. From team sports like soccer, basketball and baseball, to individual sports like cross country, tennis and golf, there are probably more similarities in the mental game than differences.  Pressure, stress, dealing with failure, inconsistency in motivation, lack of confidence, mental fatigue, and struggles with concentration are some of the issues we see no matter what the sport.

But not only across sports, this is across life too. Think of your life outside of sports, whether it’s work, a job interview, taking a big test, or simply paying your bills in any given month.  These issues come up in many areas of life where you have to perform to a high level to achieve your objectives.

While most of our clients are athletes, we have also worked with students, business people, stock traders, and military, among others.  The qualities needed to perform are the same:  confidence, focus, motivation, dealing with pressure and anxiety, controlling emotions, and more.  Check out our sport psychology services page to see if what we provide athletes could help you perform to your best in your field.
