Sports Psychology

The main goal of Sports Psychology, which utilizes both problem-focused and development-focused methods, is to build mental resilience in athletes. Mental resilience is like a muscle, it can be developed through consistent and regular training. Many concepts such as high concentration skills, solid self-structure, effective anxiety management, strong communication and team dynamics, perseverance in the face of adversity, and flexibility are all encompassed within the scope of mental resilience.
