SWAS places a strong emphasis on holistic development and provides a comprehensive wellbeing and Sports Psychology service to athletes. This is done through a series of education workshops, sport program workshops or one on one consults. (Link to Sport Psychologist & Paragraph on them when finalised)
When speaking about wellbeing there is a range of different factors that can impact on athletic performance, as well as our everyday health and wellbeing. Sleep, stress, diet, exercise and mindfulness are just some of the topics we will look at within our wellbeing workshops to ensure you are functioning at your best.
Sports Psychology involves the study of how our mental processes can affect our sporting performance and behaviour. Using a variety of techniques and strategies, a professional can support you to increase your awareness and control of these mental processes, which can minimize the negative effect they can have on your performance and well-being.
It is important to remember that you do not have to have something going wrong to seek support. Developing your mental skills is a really important part of your development as an athlete and a person, just like your physical skills. Of course, sometimes we experience some tough times, whether that be in our sporting lives or our personal lives. Our support people are there to help you through the tough times too.
