The perception of sport psychology has a tendency to be misinterpreted. Sport psychology consultants are trained to assist athletes with psychological preparation for competition and the mental and emotional demands of their sport. Certified athletic trainers agree that these services play a vital role in the development of any athlete and feel that it can benefit their performance on and off the field by improving focus and building confidence.
Current results suggest that better cognitive flexibility would enhance human performance by defusing from anxiety and stress during competition.
