Why I Work with a Sports Psychologist

Oct 28, 2020 | Blog

I started working with Hannah this June. I’m not a naturally confident person and I have a lot of self-doubts when it comes to competing. Last year, I felt I was standing in my own way when it came to me not progressing through heats. I took myself out of the competition before I even entered the water. So when coronavirus halted this year’s Qualifying Series tour, I felt it was a really good time to explore new relationships with Sports Psychologists. I had a couple of introductory calls with different psychologists before being introduced to Hannah. On our first call, I felt we just clicked! I’ve been working with her consistently since then and I love it. We’ve been working on building my confidence from the ground up and also building my mental skills for competition (when it resumes). I’m really happy and appreciative to have her on my team and I’m looking forward to my next chance to compete!
