Why meet with a sport psychologist?

The world of athletics has become increasingly more competitive. Athletes are relentlessly training to get an edge over their competition. With that being said, there comes a point where physical skill can only take an athlete so far. On the day of competition, it’s the athlete who can perform at their peak, consistently, when it matters who is successful. Success in these moments comes down to the athlete’s mental game. It’s the athlete’s ability to manage pre-game anxiety, regulate emotions, rebound from mistakes, adapt and adjust to factors that influence the game beyond their control, and more that give them the edge. These are some of the skills that are learned and developed through meeting with a sport psychologist and why having one on your team is essential for peak performance.
