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?

You’ll probably find that your mountain biking is compromised by having to hold the table tennis bat. Keeping the scrabble board balanced as you go over jumps must be a real pain, too.

You’re really onto something there!

Mountain bike table tennis scrabble is a sport I could get into watching!

I hesitate to get serious in a sometimes awesome comments section, but for the OP:

Peak Achievement out at Belconnen claim to have good results for sports psychology – I’ve seen them for “normal” psychology services, but I guess signed “thank you” posters on the wall from Patrick Johnson and a couple of other athletes are a reasonable testimony.

See #7. The post certainly got some odd feedback! Feed…. Hmmmm…. Burritos….!

As funny as some of these comments are, they don’t really help.

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.

Just hunger and the anticipation of chilli and beans. Especially when new burrito places are opening. Sorry to be boring!

Psychological pressure, huh?

Perhaps you might want some time out, to take yourself away for a while from the pressures of city life and the things that are causing you anxiety.

When the weather is warmer and the crowds are gone, you could head up to Thredbo for the summer season, to one of those nature resort clubs, and unwind a bit. There’s plenty to do there, to get your mind off things. Those places have great stuff like mountain bikes, table tennis, Scrabble… oh… wait…

I can probably help you. When you train I’ll ride my bike next to you and scream “RUN MUTHAF***A!!”.

All for the low, low price of $99.95 per hour.

But he also wants results guaranteed, so better take the cattle prod as well……..

If wraith can catch you, he can have you…

Great idea, set it up, bet it will improve his MTB skills…………I could paint a picture what it would like me chasing you on a MTB……..but it will scare the kids
