Sports Psychology

The sport psychologists at Performance Boost use applied sports psychology to help athletes and performers to learn and practice mental skills that allows them to strive for consistent high performance in every match or game. Everyone remembers a time when you performed at your best. We help you to reproduce your best performances on a consistent basis. As you practice the mental skills that we teach you, you increase the chance of consistently performing at your best.

Sports psychology is not restricted to elite and professional athletes. Recreational and amateur athletes, including many children and adolescents benefit from visiting a sport psychologist.
