Do You Feel...

If you recognize these symptoms in yourself or someone you know, reaching out to the experts at Foundations can be a convenient and effective way to start addressing these challenges. The team at Foundations is ready to guide you through your journey toward healing and personal growth. Taking that first step to seek help can lead to significant positive changes in your life.

Decreased Athletic Performance

A sudden or gradual decline in sports performance, where skills and abilities that were once second nature become challenging, can indicate a need for sports performance counseling.

Increased Anxiety or Nervousness

Experiencing heightened anxiety or nervousness before, during, or after sports events, often manifesting as physical symptoms like shaking, rapid heartbeat, or nausea, may signal the need for counseling.

Difficulty Concentrating

Trouble focusing during training or competitions, leading to mistakes or decreased performance, can be a sign that sports performance counseling might be beneficial.

Loss of Motivation or Passion

A noticeable decrease in enthusiasm or drive for the sport, which used to bring joy and fulfillment, might suggest the need for professional support.

Persistent Negative Thoughts

If an athlete is consistently bogged down by negative self-talk, doubts about their abilities, or pessimistic views about their sports performance, counseling can help.

Excessive Fear of Failure

An overwhelming fear of disappointing others, making mistakes, or not meeting expectations, to the point where it hampers performance, can be alleviated through sports performance counseling.

Mood Swings or Irritability

Uncharacteristic mood changes, especially related to sports activities, practices, or thoughts about performance, can indicate underlying issues that counseling might address.

Difficulty Managing Stress

If stress related to sports is becoming unmanageable or affecting other areas of life, this is a clear sign that sports performance counseling could be beneficial.

Issues with Team Dynamics

Struggling to connect or communicate effectively with teammates or coaches, leading to isolation or conflict, may be improved with the help of a sports counselor.
