Sport Psychology/Mental Training
Sport psychology/mental training is about performance enhancement and allowing a mental growth process to overcome obstacles in the field of sport. It identifies proper preparation, procedures and obstacles that could get in the way of ideal performance. Ultimately, we have the goal to mold resilient competitors who learn the ability to respond positively to setbacks and the rigors of the game.
Working with a mental performance coach does not assume there is an inherent problem with any athlete. Rather, the goal is to allow the athlete to achieve his or her potential in practice and competition. It is given that each athlete has the ability to improve upon their current state. There may be habits that have been practiced that need replacing or the addition of new habits may be necessary to increase self awareness. In short, we are not fixing a problem; we are enhancing performance. This denotes the absolute difference in mental training and clinical psychology.
