Sports Counseling – Therapists and Counselors in Colorado Springs, CO

A gymnast preparing for a competition, worried about a previous injury. A distant runner who is stuck running the same mile time, unable to break 5:00 min. A football player who is afraid to make a mistake. A soccer player that is continually frustrated with teammates, unable to work with the team.

Some people may wonder, why participate in a sport? The financial cost, lengthy practices and excessive stress are seen as “over the top” to some people. Not everyone understands the thrill and the rush of adrenaline when playing well. The comradery of the team, and the feeling of accomplishment when the goal is reached – the one you’ve worked for months to reach – these are the unseen benefits of sports.

Of course, there are many physical benefits as well:

  • Healthy Heart
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Helps with weight control
  • Lowers cholesterol
  • Helps to manage stress

The personal, social and emotional benefits:

  • Increased self esteem
  • Increased self-discipline
  • Improved attitude
  • Increased respect for others
  • Teamwork leads to sense of belonging, being part of something greater
  • Improved people skills – from playing as a team
  • Ability to remain calm and problem solve in difficult situations.

With all these benefits, you may wonder……

Jerry was Amazing!

Jerry was amazing! Jerry uses choice theory in order to help his patients grow and work through their problems...Read more

. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
