The world of athletes is ever changing. It is ever changing because of the challenges that athletes face physically but also mentally too. Sometimes fans do not even know that an athlete is going through the mental struggle of sport. This can cause the athlete to feel isolated, alone, and vulnerable to other areas that may prove to be non-beneficial for the athlete.
Through sports counseling in Orlando, ensuring the athlete maintains optimal mental health becomes the focus. By partnering with an objective supporter and trained mental health professional, the athlete can focus on mental success in and out of sport.
THRIVE Sports counselors have additional training that specialize in sports counseling for the athletes world. THRIVE Sports counselors in Orlando are rooted in the psychology of sport, optimizing the athletic mindset, and prioritizing each athlete as an individual.
Instead of focusing on performance first, sports counseling focuses on the mental health needs and stability of the athlete. This practice has shown to directly influence athletic performance in a positive way. Being an athlete at any level can pose difficult challenges to overcome, but having a healthy, non-judgmental space to process stressors allows the athlete to avoid bottling up emotions that can negatively impact sport performance.

This could be high school, collegiate, professional, amateur, semi-professional, professional and international athletes alike. We turn no blind eye away from any sport and welcome athletes of the diverse world of athletics to join us.
