Frequently Asked Questions

Sports Psychology studies the performance, mental condition, and well-being of an athlete in various sport situations using psychological methods. It understands that emotional and psychological factors can impact athletes and their performance. For example, self-confidence, motivation, and determination are a few of the psychological factors that can influence how an athlete or a team performs.

Sometimes, despite training hard, your performance may not match your potential. It could be due to competitive stress, lack of concentration, or low self-confidence. The reason for this might be emotional or psychological barriers that you may not be even aware of. A Sport Psychologist can help you overcome these challenges, improve your concentration, manage game-related stress and get the best out of your training. Even if everything is going well for you, consulting a Sport Psychologist can still help boost your performance.
A Sport Psychologist helps an athlete overcome the emotional or psychological challenges that may be affecting his or her performance. By understanding the challenges and through mental skill-building strategies, a Sport Psychologist can help the athlete concentrate better, deal more effectively with game-related stress, train more efficiently and perform better.
An athlete usually goes to a Sport Psychologist to work on his or her performance. Not consulting one will not cause any harm. However, it is important that an athlete makes mental conditioning (working with a Sport Psychologist) an integral part of the training program in order to optimize potential.
All athletes, irrespective of the sport they play, age and level of competition, can benefit from working with a Sport Psychologist. If you want to enhance your mental performance or keep your performance consistent, going to a Sport Psychologist will help.
Consulting a Sport Psychologist can be beneficial at all stages of your training. Think about consulting one during pre-competition preparation, performance slumps, skill acquisition, injury rehabilitation, and career transitions. Your decision to consult will be based on your individual situation and needs. At Nudge Sports we believe that all athletes must make mental conditioning an integral part of their training program.
A Sport Psychologist and a mainstream psychologist are both professionals in the field of psychology, but they have different areas of focus and expertise. Sport Psychologists primarily work with athletes and sports teams to enhance performance, while mainstream psychologists work with those who need help to deal with mental health concerns in a larger context.

Athletes usually go to Sport Psychologists to:

● Improve performance & focus better during the game
● Work on self-confidence, motivation level etc.
● Manage expectations of self, coach & parents
● Learn how to balance studies or work with their sport
● Cope with emotions post injury and through recovery, stay motivated during rehabilitation and for best performance during the ‘back to sport’ phase.
● Improve as a team player, be better at communication, at handling conflicts and at being able to perform well no matter the team dynamics.
