EVEN SUPERHEROES NEED MENTAL SUPPORT

Years back Diego Maradona made a revelation “Messi a leader? You can’t call someone a leader who goes to the bathroom 20 times before every game. It’s useless to make a leader of a guy like that.” What is wrong with going to the bathroom 20 times? It’s common due to anxiety and stage fright. But, what you do to manage it is important.

Recently Virat Kohli revealed that he suffered depression and what he did to overcome it. It shows the significance of Sports Psychologists in the sports domain. Not only athletes, but the coaches, referees and even the team managers need the support of sports psychologist to keep them cool during hot games without seizing the fire in their belly. Unluckily, we have very less qualified Sports Psychologists to cater to our needs.

SMRI introduces one of the most advanced sports psychology courses, PG DIPLOMA IN SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY to cater to the world’s need for highly qualified SPORTS PSYCHOLOGISTS.

SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY

Sports psychology is a proficiency that uses psychological knowledge and skills to address the optimal performance and well-being of athletes, developmental and social aspects of sports participation and systemic issues associated with sports settings and organizations. One of the roles of a sport psychologist is to work with athletes, to teach them how to perfect their mental skills to improve their performance.

When compared to other careers, a sports person’s career has immense pressure. Their performance is witnessed by thousands of viewers in the gallery and millions of audiences all over the world. They are encumbered with the burden of expectations, and this stress can adversely affect their performance. Also, news, gossips and criticisms about them can impose a heavy levy on them. A sports psychologist can help them tackle such situations effectively and successfully.
