Psychology

Sometimes performance psychology will get you through a mentally challenging time.

It’s important that you are mentally healthy as well as physically healthy.

Sometimes it’s that voice in your head that can affect your sports performance. Imposter syndrome appears in all walks of life and it can pull the rug from under your feet and steal your ability to function at an optimal level. And anxiety, depression and stress can eat away at your self-confidence. Getting psychological help can enable you to live a more meaningful life and handle challenges along the way.

They’ll liaise with other health professionals, including your referring doctor or physiotherapist, to provide a comprehensive analysis of your situation.

Provide a mental health plan​

They’ll provide you with a mental health plan in conjunction with your physical well-being.

Physiotherapy and psychology complement each other

Exercise and physical wellness are central tenets of most psychological treatment and mental health. Thus the disciplines of physiotherapy and psychology complement each other very well.
