Endless nights pass without rest. Panic surges through your veins as you lie awake, greeted once more by the unforgiving hour of 3 am. The anxiety and despair is relentless; you’re barely holding on. But outwardly you maintain composure, presenting an image of having everything under control. Yet, inwardly, a fierce battle wages. Your inner demons are tightening their grip, leaving you feeling despondent and utterly drained.

My background in performing arts and sports (including Broadway and Olympics) makes me additionally aware of various pressures that can hinder personal and professional growth.
Difficulties in personal or professional life can make anyone feel overwhelmed, confused or hopeless. Relationship problems, health issues, loss, pain or traumatic past can add to the distress. Getting through these obstacles doesn't have to be a lonely process. In a supportive and confidential atmosphere, we can discuss your thoughts and feelings, and together, make sense of your unique life's circumstances, whether you are in crisis, caught up in relationship conflicts, facing identity questions or repeating patterns that don't always bring positive outcomes.

Sports Performance Therapists

How does sports psychology work?

Sports psychology helps athletes identify and overcome challenges, such as perfectionism or a fear of failure, and improve key mental skills, such as confidence or concentration. By applying principles and techniques from psychology, such as goal-setting, visualization, positive self-talk, and emotion regulation, sports psychologists help athletes improve their performance on the field and their well-being overall.

How long does treatment for a sports-related problem take?

The duration of sports psychology treatment depends on the athlete’s individual challenges, goals, the complexity of the interventions used, and even on the length of the season. A performance anxiety issue may be treated with a short-term treatment, like Cognitive behavioural therapy, while issues such as depression, substance abuse, or severe anxiety may require longer-term treatments.

How effective is treatment for sports performance problems?

Sports psychology has been shown to improve performance and help athletes manage their emotions. Sports psychology can be effective in boosting performance, team dynamics, and injury rehabilitation. Over the past decade, nearly every professional sports team in every major sport has added a sports psychologist to its staff. Many colleges have done the same, and even some high school programs have done the same. Olympic hopefuls may consult with sports psychologists starting in elementary school.

What are the limitations of sports psychology?

Sports psychology may have several limitations. Every athlete is unique and may respond differently to sports psychology treatments. Therapy can help an athlete reach their potential; it can help athletes cope with injury and pain, but it cannot change the physical limitations that may be affecting an athlete’s performance.
