SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY CONSULTING GROUP
I am committed to the support of assisting athletes, families, leaders and coaches in sport and wellness activities and applied sports psychology.
A structured effort and the use of sport psychology theory and practice are the foundation of the program. After becoming fully engaged in the plan and approach, both the client and the consultant share responsibility for outcomes and success. I supplement an adaptive platform for self exploration of psychological performance for athletes, and their leaders in the framework of sport and competition.
WHAT I LEARN
I learn and define each athlete's deficiencies and strong points, to develop and design a comprehensive solution focused performance based modification intervention plan that is mutually developed for performance enhancement issues and concerns. Always sensitive and aware of ethical and legal standards of the profession, I will work in tandem with the client to seek mutually agreed upon outcomes.
I will work closely with each athlete in an applied setting to pursue improvement of daily life routines, practices, performance and personal approaches towards exercise, fitness, and overall mental and physical health and well-being. The net result is a significant plan to achieve consistent and effective performance and mental preparation.
“Reggie has been an outstanding influence to the girls on the high school lacrosse team. His encouragement, teaching style, and technique has helped the girls to their 2nd state back to back championships with two undefeated seasons. His way of working with the girls, and their response to him, is something that I think many could learn from.”
