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……

e had a quite abusive life, prior to my adopting him. Directly from the onset of my scheduling his intake to his intake appointment, my spirit felt that this was going to be the correct place for him to be. Rachel, his therapist, is amazing! The entire staff is amazing. Their communication skills are dynamic and Talon is responding so positively; actually more so than he has with any other therapy group. The focus is on his success! Success in overcoming his obstacles and in life. As a therapist, myself, I highly recommend Thriveworks!
