If you would like to improve your sports performance, whether it’s golf, tennis, horse riding, football, athletics, running, motor sports or something else, Cognitive Therapy and Positive Psychology, or maybe Psychotherapy, can help.
Most sports people put a great deal of effort into keeping physically fit, training, practising and honing their physical skills but often neglect their mind, their cognitive processes, and their psychology and the important role that all of this plays in their performance….or lack of!
Sports performance and sport psychology actually involves far more than ‘just’ working on the performance problems encountered when taking part in a sport. Almost always, the psychological or cognitive problems arising during matches or competition (and sometimes even during social play or training) are simply a reflection (and very often a magnification!) of problems which are already present in other aspects of a person’s life.
Therapy can help people to identify and understand any psychological patterns and beliefs relating to themselves and their sport performance which are unhelpful and preventing them from achieving their potential in their chosen sport. Also, as I have mentioned already, these factors will invariably be present in their ‘everyday life’ too, so sometimes a course of psychotherapy may be needed to help them to resolve other concerns they may have – such as general anxiety, fears, emotional problems, general confidence problems, low self-esteem, and so on.
Cognitive Therapy and Positive Psychology is useful to enable people to gain a thorough insight and awareness and understanding of how their cognitive – thinking – mind works, and how certain patterns and belief systems can be really unhelpful. Once a person understands more about their belief systems, their thought patterns, and behaviours, they are in a position to make effective changes and be better able to manage their performance issues. Psychotherapy helps people to work through the deeper issues aiming towards a permanent resolution of their problems.
