Sports Psychologist

Any athlete, in order to express himself at his best, has to be aware of the close bond between the “sport” that he practises and his “psychology”.

Many footballers focus their work only on the technical level and they often close their career with satisfactory, but not excellent results. The secret of many “champions” is the Professional Psychological Consultancy. The footballer creates with the Sports Psychologist a relationship that goes from the motivational aspects to the awareness that everybody must have his own personality features.  A champion is a “machine” that becomes “perfect” if it is managed at 360 degrees. The professional relationship between the footballer and his Sports Psychologist allows the analysis of all processes that characterize his physical performance with the set-up of that awareness that is necessary to improve the technical and tactic learning. 

International research has confirmed how professional footballers that are followed by a Sports Psychologist improve their performances of more than 60% and are more satisfied than the athletes who don’t follow that path. A professional football player improves his performances if he understands that his season, his results and  his single performance are influenced by the psychological perceptions that he lives. The Psychological Sports Consultancy is fundamental to improve his own mental approach.
