Sport psychology can assist many people both on and off the field. Athletes, trainers, umpires, coaches, and managers can all benefit from counselling as a way to identify goals and problems, as well as find paths to achieve and overcome these. Elite sports people often find counselling useful for improving focus and overcoming fatigue.
During your sessions, you and your psychologist will discuss matters such as goal setting and implementation, stress management, communication skills, weight management, body image, and how to deal with anxiety. They can also assist with recovering from an injury or illness, regaining your former physique and mindset.
Psychological treatments are proven to help people with their issues by helping them to develop better coping skills and change negative patterns of thinking so that they can deal better with life’s conflicts and stresses.
Psychological therapies can help a person to recover and can also prevent issues from reoccurring. Psychological treatments can include Relaxation Skills, Psychoeducation, Psychological Counselling, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Inter-Personal Therapy (IPT), Behaviour Therapy, and Hypnosis.
Medicare rebates are available to those who are eligible. Rebates can be paid directly into your bank account when sessions are paid for using cash, cheque or EFTPOS.
