Coaches and parents often find themselves in increasingly growing roles as it pertains to athletes and sport. It is important to understand that filling many roles in the life of an athlete is not always in the best interest of the athlete. These sessions/workshops are manufactured to create awareness of the many different viewpoints, strategies, and principles that surround competition, athletes, and other participants.
These individual Sport Psychology Sessions provide a conducive space to talk with our sport psychologist about various relative mental skills for sport performance, mental health (e.g., anxiety, depression), general life challenges, and overall well-being. Sessions typically last about 45 minutes but can be shorter or longer upon need.
Sport and Performance therapy is geared toward helping individual athletes or performers develop a growth mindset and progress towards overall wellbeing while maintaining performance goals and initiatives. Athletes often find themselves under various pressure from life on and off the playing field. Top Form Psychology prides itself on serving the sport and performance population in coping with these pressures and fortifying a mindset that is capable of overcoming obstacles.
Whether it be one's mental health, specific goals, certain challenges, or a simple interest in being the best version of yourself, Top Form Psych is here to guide you in becoming the best athlete, performer, teammate, coach, and person you can be.
Top Form Psychology is here to facilitate awareness around team roles and assist in the development of diverse skills that will allow teams to adopt an effective team ethos. Each session will be tailored to the specific needs and style of the team.
Services may include team building activities, leadership development, informational presentations, consultations with coaches, mental skill assessments and workshops.
A skilled and objective professional is often needed to decipher difficult team dynamics. Those may include:
- Developing trust
- Improving communication
- Reducing conflict
- Cultivating leadership
- Maintaining confidence through losses
- Unlocking capabilities with mental skills training
