EMDR — Transforming Stress and Trauma
• Enhancing Performance
Athletic or Sports Performance Enhancement and Peak Performance Therapy
If you are struggling to excel in your sport, or if you have not been able to get back into your game after a sports injury or a failed competition, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) therapy may be a solution for you. EMDR for athletic performance enhancement can help you to regain your competitive edge and remove the mental barriers preventing you from reaching your peak performance. The following are examples of athletic performance barriers that EMDR can assist you to put behind you:
You have trouble maintaining mental focus in training and/or competitions:
- Negative Thought – “I am a head case”
- You lack confidence in your abilities:
- Negative Thought – “I am a failure”
You do not trust your coach:
- Negative Thought – “My coach doesn’t get me”
You lack trust in the effectiveness of your athletic equipment:
- Negative Thought – “My cleats are too heavy, they are slowing me down”
You have trouble with other athletes on your team
- Negative Thought –“If he would just pass it to me more often, I would score”
You lack confidence in your body’s ability to heal after an injury.
- Negative Thought –“I will never compete like I did before the injury"
