Sport as Therapy
Using sport psychology tools for children with ADHD, emotional & social issues
The Sport Psychology Center works with children and youth who are having difficulties with limits, adjustment issues, social issues, or just coping with everyday pressures and fears. Our model is based on sport psychology tools and techniques that help athletes cope with the pressures of peak performance. We believe in going with the strengths of the child and working with him / her in an exciting and healthy “sport” environment. The individual meetings take place with our highly experienced mental trainers.
We provide a supportive relationship in a safe place with young and dynamic mental trainers, each of whom receives supervision on his work.

To the reader:
The purpose of writing Lucky Leo was to introduce basic psychology concepts to young children. Children encounter many stressors in daily life and, just as adults, need tools to cope. At the Sport Psychology Center we work with children using sport as a tool. The following sport psychology concepts are embedded in the story and provide opportunities for discussion:
Believing in oneself and one's goal even if others are not supportive
Visualizing positive images in order to relax and stay positive
Talking about problems helps you feel better
