Sports Psychology
- You already do it!

Have you ever gone through the race in your head before you run? Have you ever tried to relax before a race? Have you ever had an aim for the season? Have you ever tried to get yourself ‘up for it’?

Whether we are aware of it or not we all use psychological techniques. Just like any other coach a sports psychologist’s main job is to make the athlete aware of and better at doing whatever it is he/she is already doing.

In this space I intend to give a brief outline of some psychological techniques and theories. I suggest that you consider using the ones you are already using. It is easier to modify a technique than to learn a new one. However, have a go at the others, they may help!

This is only meant to be a general explanation. If you need a more specific technique to you, then contact me or another sports psychologist.
