What is Performance Consulting?
The American Psychological Association, or APA (Division 47) defines sport and exercise psychology as “the scientific study of the psychological factors associated with participation and performance in sport, exercise, and other types of physical activity.” Sport psychologists focus primarily on helping athletes use psychological principles and skills to achieve optimal mental health and to improve performance.
Here at S2S, we go beyond on just teaching you sports psychology skills to improve performance or overcome injuries. We also incorporate several interpersonal and cognitive-behavioral techniques to help clients maximize their sense of well-being both on the field and off. This is why we refer to these services as Performance Consulting.
Participating in sports can impact an individual in a number of different ways. Sports and Performance activities can impact coping strategies, social interactions, family dynamics, personal identity and future planning. Those same domains outside of sport can impact performance.
