SPORTS PSYCHOLOGY COURSE
The field of Sport Psychology is an interesting and ever-evolving area in the world of sports. The role of a soft skills sports psychologist differs significantly from that of a licensed sports psychologist in that soft skills sports psychologists are not permitted to identify and treat psychological disorders. Rather, soft skills sports psychologists deal with individual issues that reach further than the scope of a sports coach.
Trifocus Fitness Academy is offering you an opportunity to become a soft skills sports psychologist by mastering the theory of mental skills coaching. After completion of the qualification you will gain a deeper understanding of what makes a sportsman or -woman tick. In so doing, you’ll help them to improve their performance by allowing them to overcome any mental obstacles they may have to succeeding as an athlete.
Being a soft skills sports psychologist will allow you to work with professional sports teams as well as in high schools and amateur leagues. We highly recommend this qualification to anyone who wants to have a deeper understanding of sportsmen and -women, wants to have flexibility of having a diverse clientele and is ready to make a serious move towards becoming a specialist in this field.
