Sport Psychology with David
1st session free
1 to 1 2 to 20
Firstly, it is better to know the person rather than the professional. I am down to earth, easy to reach, approachable person. Born and bred in South West Wales in Llanelli. I first started my journey as a Sport Psychologist when I ruptured my ACL playing for my regional rugby team. I felt at the time (almost 10 years ago) that there was no support, nobody involved that I can turn to. I felt that there was nobody there to; (1) be 'that' shoulder, or (2) support me psychologically through the unfortunate circumstances I found myself in. Since then, I have a B.Sc. Sport and Physical Education degree, M.Sc. In applied sport psychology, in my final stages of British association of Sport exercise science (BASES) sport psychology supervision, and have had a range of experiences from individual athletes to team sports; beginners to world class athletes. I assure you that I am able to communicate complicated information to something that is easily digestible. My goal is always to provide you with the tools to continue without my help.

About the session
Depending on initial assessment clients should expect the following services: - Teaching psychological techniques (e.g., imagery, goal setting, mindfulness, positive psychology, challenging irrational thoughts, CMT); - Developing athletes psychological skills which can be transferred to all aspects of life; - Working with athletes through a variety of transitions including within sport transitions (e.g., academy to senior) and transitions following the cessation of sport; - Providing one-to-one sessions and/or workshops to educate players about the benefits of psychological support to enhance performance. In my 7 years of experience of working within elite environments, it has developed my working philosophy as a sport psychologist. Whilst I am more than aware that improving performance is important, understanding the athletes holistically and ensuring that their wellbeing is not only considered but enhanced is very important in my consultancy work.
