Sport Psychology Why is Sport Psychology Important?  Learning mental coping skills to help the mind and body leads to optimal sports performance. Confidence is often undermined by negative self-talk and anxiety which leads to increased body tension and decreased performance.   Athletes start to present with a profile of playing “not to lose” rather than “to win” Recognizing these negative mental pattens and practicing strategies to eliminate these tendencies can result in a happier, healthier and higher performing athlete. Many successful professional and Olympic athletes  routinely use sports psychology coaching to help them develop their mental toolkit for success. What Makes Kelly’s Program Successful?
