The primary task is to provide our patients with comprehensive psychological care and that is why we create conditions for full discretion and intimacy. This allows our patients to feel safe and receive support, understanding and help in solving their problems. Psychological assistance is understood as a process in which a psychologist accompanies the patient, helps him to understand the problem and provides preferred and desired by the patient changes.
Contemporary sports psychology has become one of the most important areas to support athletes in achieving top sports performance. The progressive professionalism and commercialization of sport also leaves athletes wishing to achieve more and more success, and as a result looking for different ways and means to facilitate their functioning.
Our knowledge and expertise in the field of sport psychology is used in two areas:
diagnosis and measurement:
- We measure the psychophysical state of the athlete during training, prior and during the event. We analyze the level of mental preparation, i.e., concentration, focus on goals, motivation and arousal, the level of self-esteem, self-control, self-acceptance, stress and how to deal with it during athlete recruitment and selection, test capabilities, an assessment of athlete’s need.
Advice and counseling in addition to the above. diagnosed areas is primarily focused on working with traumatic patients. Psychological intervention carries support, understanding, minimizes anxiety, and is based on the cooperation of the entire medical team.
One of the methods we use when working with patients is biofeedback therapy . This is a method based on passing feedback signals about changes in the physiological state of the body to the patient, so that he can learn to consciously modify functions that are normally do not consciously controlled.
We also use the EEG non-invasive diagnostic method which is used to study the bioelectric activity of the brain using an electroencephalograph. The examination is based on the appropriate location of electrodes on the surface of the skin of the skull, which record the electric potential changes on the skin surface, the activity of neurons derived from the cerebral cortex, and their reinforcement create one relevant record.
In the case of transfers, we use the U.S. version of the questionnaire examining mental skill performance – MSP.
