You might hear about different approaches in Psychology. Really, what this means to us is how we see the mind functioning, and what we might do to try and help. Typically, I look at things from a cognitive-behavioural (CB) perspective. What this means is that I believe in the impact of thoughts on our emotions and thus on our behaviour. Take a look at the visual below:
Thoughts. Feelings. Behaviour.
Every client is completely different, but here’s a rough guide of what you can expect from consultancy with Seed.
You might not have experienced Sport Psychology before at all. You might have experienced something already, which could look very different to what we do here at Seed. Our approach lends itself to investigating what you are telling yourself – in general, and during specific moments you might be experiencing performance concerns or blocks.
We use a cognitive-behavioural (CB) approach. So what does that mean…?
If we start with what you’re telling yourself – what you’re thinking, we can start to unpick what emotions you’re experiencing as a result of this thinking pattern. Your thoughts and feelings will heavily influence the action you take – or – your behaviour.
So, in the example above you can see how the thought impacts on the feeling. Then the feeling impacts on what actually happens – our behaviour. This model offers clarity, and it helps us apply this approach to all sorts of different situations.
