Sport Psychology

What it is

 

At DBC Sport Psychology and Counseling, we are passionate about helping athletes unlock their full potential and achieve peak performance in the dynamic and demanding world of sports. Our specialized practice focuses on enhancing the mental performance and emotional well being aspect of athletes involved in hockey, golf, soccer, volleyball, baseball, softball, and other sports. We understand that sports have unique challenges and require tailored approaches to mental conditioning and performance optimization.

Andrew, Jon and Katie are Certified Mental Performance Consultants (CMPC) certified through AASP or the Association of Applied Sport Psychology. Being a CMPC is the certification standard for working in the field of sport psychology and we are fortunate enough to have three working with us!

Our Approach

Customized, Evidence-Based Strategies: Our team of experienced and highly trained Certified Mental Performance Consultants tailor our strategies to the individual needs of each athlete. We base our techniques on the latest scientific research in sport psychology, ensuring that our clients have access to the most effective and up-to-date methods for improving their mental game.

Performance Enhancement: We believe that every athlete has untapped potential. Our goal is to help you reach new heights in your chosen sport by improving your focus, confidence, and mental resilience. We'll work with you to develop mental skills that complement your physical abilities and enhance your overall performance.

 

Team Dynamics: We also work with sports teams, helping them build better communication, cohesion, culture and a competitive mindset. We recognize that the dynamics within a team can significantly impact its performance, and we offer workshops and tools to improve teamwork, leadership, and various other team dynamic concerns.

Overcoming Challenges: We understand the unique challenges that athletes face, including performance anxiety, slumps, injury recovery, and the pressure of competition. Our approach equips you with the mental tools to overcome these obstacles and emerge stronger and more confident.

Goal Setting and Achievement: Whether you aim to make it to the professional level, improve your game, or simply enjoy your sport more, we'll help you set and achieve your goals. Our goal-oriented strategies are designed to keep you motivated and focused on your personal athletic journey.

 

Sports We Specialize In

Hockey: From managing the intense pressure of the ice to boosting on-ice decision-making, our hockey-focused expertise helps players at all levels maximize their performance.

Golf: Golf is as much a mental game as a physical one. Our specialists can help you manage stress, improve concentration, and boost your mental game on the greens.

Soccer: Soccer demands a combination of skill, teamwork, and mental fortitude. We provide soccer players with the mental tools to perform at their best, from penalty shootouts to injury recovery.

Volleyball: Quick thinking, agility, and teamwork are critical in volleyball. We assist volleyball athletes in developing the mental skills to excel in this fast-paced sport.

Baseball/Softball: These sports require precision, focus, and resilience. Our experts work with baseball and softball players to enhance their mental game, from batting to pitching.

At DBC Sport Psychology and Counseling, we are dedicated to helping athletes not only improve their performance but also find enjoyment and satisfaction in their chosen sports. We believe that the mental aspect of sports is just as crucial as the physical, and we are here to guide you on your journey to becoming the best athlete you can be.

We have worked with athletes from Europe, Canada, Asia, and the United States of America. Everything starts with meeting athletes where they are in their journey and seeing what goals, ambitions and drives they have. From there, we develop a game plan with the athlete to address this and facilitate growth. By providing resources, support and mental skills training, athletes will be provided with an all around program that has research and experience to support it.
