Counseling for Athletes – Sports Psychology in Greenville, SC

How do you handle the pressure that comes with being an athlete? What tools do you use for improving your focus and motivation? Who do you turn to for help when you’re in a slump?

For athletes at every level, sports psychology has played a key role in improving performance and mental toughness. You may think that sports psychology is just for professional athletes, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. Whether you compete in high school or college sports, or you’re a professional athlete, you can benefit from sport psychology. In fact, sports psychology can help you improve your game, even if your only competitor is you.

How Can I Benefit from Sports Psychology?

Sport psychology is about more than just visualizing performance goals and practicing good breathing. This type of counseling for athletes focuses on more than just your athletic performance – because you’re not just an athlete. There’s so much more to who you are. Our counselors address your personal, professional – and yes, your sports life. We want to help you make gains in each of these areas. This is key in achieving your peak performance.

Athletes are under a lot of pressure. The constant strain to be at your peak performance, the challenge to be better than your opponent, and the stress of managing life outside of sports can be overwhelming. If you’ve ever experienced a sports injury or a difficult setback, you know how hard it can be to find your stride again after you recover. Sport psychology can help you cope with these pressures.

The only reason why my Family stopped going to see Ms. Dowdell is because I had to change jobs and at the time...Read more

my schedule would not allow us to continue services. She made sure my Family had a great transition to another Provider and that we had continuity of care. Now that my schedule has a little more flexibility, I am very thankful to be able to continue services with Ms. Dowdell who still remembers my Family’s history like we were just in her office yesterday (over 1 year ago)! She listens intently and never puts you down, and helps you understand your emotions and what issues and problems you may be going through in a way that you can understand but clearly. Personally, I deal with a lot of stress and being pulled in a lot of directions, and would when I felt as though my words did not make sense coming out of my mouth, she would know how to piece together what I was saying and not make me feel bad for being too vulnerable and made my therapy sessions a safe space to learn and grow from them. I am forever grateful for how she is helping my Family accept what we need to accept, change what we need to change, and heal from the root of our wounds; wounds I did not know were there. I highly recommend her.

Emily was the first therapist I had ever gone to after thinking for a long time it would be good for me. I was...Read more

stuck in a rut and repeating patterns and using coping skills that were no longer helpful to me. She helped me work through many of my personal issues, some which had been stewing since childhood. She always knew when to push and when to back off if a certain issue was too sensitive at that time. She is honest yet kind. I was sad to see her move out of Chicago but I will forever be grateful for the tools she helped me to develop for dealing with the sh**show that life can be sometimes. She helped me get back into alignment with who I really am as a person. I would highly recommend her for anyone who is struggling or even just looking for a little more balance in their lives.
