Sport Psychology

"Sport has the power to change the world … it has the power to inspire. It has the power to unite people in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than government in breaking down racial barriers."

Nelson Mandela, World Laureus Sports Awards, 2000

I believe..

..that sport can be used as a valuable instrument to facilitate growth, change and development for all people. I completed various Sport Psychology modules and Coaching courses at a post graduate level and is also qualified as a personal trainer. I combine these skills to provide professional sport psychological assessments, therapy and development.

My approach to Sport Psychology involves the following:

  • Assessments in the field of Sport Psychology

    To evaluate a client’s current sport-related functioning, such as self-confidence, anxiety, concentration, motivation, and pre-competition psychological preparation.
  • Assisting and educating players

    About the transition to the life after sport.
  • Counselling / Mental Coaching

    To help players to understand, develop and improve their own performances.
  • Using sport psychology

    To develop life skills and better functioning .
  • Team building exercises and workshops

Sport Psychological Assessments

This includes using a variety of assessment instruments to evaluate a client’s current sport-related functioning, such as:

  • Self-confidence
  • Performance Anxiety
  • Concentration
  • Achievement Motivation
  • Goal Directedness
  • Activation Control
  • Imagery / Mental Preparation
