Sport Psychologist


Sports psychology is the study of how psychology influences sports, exercise, and physical activity.

Sports psychologists most often work with professional athletes and coaches, while others engage with amateur enthusiasts, or use sports to enhance just about anybody's wellbeing.

At a professional level, sport psychologists primarily help athletes cope with the pressure that comes from competition and fame.

Sports psychology is a fairly new profession, with the world's first sports psychology laboratory being founded in Berlin in 1920 by Carl Diem.
