Develop robust confidence in your ability
Become better prepared for important events and performances
Manage anger and frustrations
Bounce-back from setbacks, such as injuries
Feel better, more positive, happier
Be more satisfied with your performances - because you are performing better!
Read more about the understandable problems that athletes face and how sports psychology can help on my problems helped page. You are likely to see your performance problem there.
As a Clinical Sports Psychologist, I have the additional specialist skills and training to help athletes address other areas, such as limiting or problematic eating (eating disorders), over-exercise or exercise addiction, and limiting perceptions of body image. Why not read more about:
Underperformance in sport hurts
When we don't perform as we could have it is tough to absorb.
Often it is those of us who want it the most who suffer the greatest drop in performance. It's not as simple as: if you want it enough, then you'll make it happen.
Often, the more we want it, the more stress and tension we end up feeling - as we get more frustrated, angry and annoyed when things don't go our way.
This blocks our ability to think in a performance-enhancing way and our ability to execute our skilled physical movements.

You train your body for sport, but how much do you train your mind?
You spend a lot of time, energy and (probably) money, training your body for events.
That's great, because without the right kind of physical training, your performance can't improve and get closer to your best.
But, how much time and attention do you invest in training your mind to be ready for competition?
Most sportspeople say that when it really counts (competition), the biggest factor that determines performance, is how you manage the occasion psychologically (or don't).
