Sports Psychology Services
Clinical Psychology applied to Sports Performance
Using an eclectic approach to psychotherapy but leaning more toward a cognitive-behavioral orientation, it is very important to understand and resolve mental problems and concerns when they exist. Every good practicing sports psychologist should also be licensed in their state. There is no substitute for proper education and credentials.
Just being a licensed psychologist alone is never enough and does not define this work. Years of education and experience go into the knowledge and expertise needed to help athletes with specific mental training programs and techniques.
A good sports psychology seminar or workshop is a great way to get everyone on board with the latest in knowledge and how it can help. While knowledge gained in these sessions is vital, the best approach for a team combines these group meetings with individual psychotherapy and mental coaching.
The evaluation is always the first step in receiving quality mental health care. People are just too complex and unique, and the potential problems are numerous and the differences between one problem and another is often subtle and requires that the pschologist have both extensive knowledge and experience.
This is just a fancy word for one-on-one psychological counseling. Sitting down with a psychologist and discussing your issues in a confidential and supportive forum can be very helpful, and many therapeutic approaches are validated by years of empirical research.
Managing individuals and teams better, leading more effectively, refining people skills, and communicating better are all very important areas that are addressed in one-on-one executive coaching services.
