Sports psychologist?

By joingler - 20 August 2012 27

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good sports psychologist in Canberra.

I live in Watson so anywhere inner north would be great but I’m happy to go just about anywhere in Canberra.

Money isn’t a massive problem but I don’t want to pay unless I see results.

What’s Your opinion?

How is a sport psychologist different from a normal psychologist? Serious question. If the issue is mental wouldn’t the normal ways of dealing with mental blockages be essentially the same thing just different application? Sure I can see elite athletes with tens of thousands of sponsors dollars paying a sport psychologist but outside the top elite level is that even that common to find someone specialise like that? Just curious.

I am an amateur sportsman. I do competitive table tennis, mountain biking and scrabble (not kidding).

So it has to be something mental.

You can’t handle the Q.

Perhaps read a page of the dictionary every day? (This is for the Scrabble problem.)

Seriously, this person may be helpful:

I have never used him though, even for my burrito fantasy in the gym problem.

My results in mountain biking and scrabble have been shocking recently (although I am showing some improvement in table tennis). I don’t think that it is my fitness on the bike or my word knowledge lacking on the scrabble board which is lacking as I’m training well for both. So it has to be something mental.

You’re right. It’s definitely mental.

I hope you aren’t a race walker. As the former Australian netball captain Liz Ellis once said: “It’s like a contest to see who can whisper the loudest”…
