The broad concept of psychology is to understand human behaviour with the aim of removing all obstacles and bringing the best out of human potential and capabilities.
Clinical Psychology not only aims for the understanding, diagnosis and treatment of the bigger issue of mental health related to behaviour and mood, but addresses prevention and management of the root cause of the issue known as ‘stress’. It also deals with the management of pain and stress due to an injury and the long, difficult process of rehabilitation by providing support for the physical treatment.
The Sports Psychologist works with an athlete to identify the reasons contributing to under performance, or not giving the best of one’s ability despite being physically capable of competing well. They also help improve performance with mental and motivational exercises working with both groups or individuals.
