Sport psychology is the study and application of psychological principles of human performance in helping athletes consistently perform in the upper range of their capabilities and more thoroughly enjoy the sport performance process. Applied sport psychologists are uniquely trained and specialised to engage in a broad range of activities including the identification, development and execution of the mental and emotional knowledge, skills and abilities required for excellence in athletic domains; the understanding, diagnosing and preventing of the psychological, cognitive, emotional, behavioural and psychophysiological inhibitors of consistent, excellent performance; and the improvement of athletic contexts to facilitate more efficient development, consistent execution and positive experiences in athletes.
"I have found the work I have done with Sam has helped me understand how important a role the mind plays in sport. Which is something that I have previously ignored, but from our sessions I have learned that I can be ahead in a game without having any physical advantage which is such a massive confidence boost. As I feel like I am already ahead before I tee off.
Not only has it effected how I feel, my handicap since working with Sam has dropped from 9 to 6, not even to mention how much better I have become under pressure just by trusting the process. I would recommend anyone looking to take an advantage at any sport, at any level."
