Performance consulting FAQ
What is Performance Consulting?
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 Sport Performance and Injury Counseling.
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.
More simply put, how often do you find that when participating in sport that the stressors of everyday life like school, work, relationships, and finances affect your performance? In contrast, how often do you find that the demands of training and competition impact your life away from sport?
Why was I referred for Performance Consulting?
Is this covered by my insurance?
If you pay out of pocket, the Select Plans offer some cost savings. The additional benefit to not being paid through insurance is that you can benefit from as many sessions as you choose and a more flexible schedule.
What should I expect on my first visit?
Techniques and skills taught vary depending on your needs and goals. For example, performance enhancement skills training in areas of self-confidence, goal setting, imagery/visualization, and stress management will be integrated with cognitive-behavioral psychotherapy techniques such as cognitive appraisal and restructuring.
The techniques and skills discussed during your session often take practice and time to master so you will be encouraged to apply these techniques at home when you have the opportunity. Sessions typically last 50-55 minutes.
