Interview in basics areas (which can be virtual, via Smartphone or Skype) with the athlete. These sessions deal with aspects such as:
- General evaluation
- Setting goals
- Cognitive awareness: the athlete realizes something that does or thinks but is not aware
- Training technical skills (like relaxation or visualization)
- Identifying the keys to success to repeat them
*These sessions can include an eventual meeting with the technical staff to see how to improve their performance as a team.
Introducing work elements of practical psychological skills in the athlete training. A good example would be to integrate psychological skillwork in the physical session.
Attend a competition in which the athlete participates, to observe both his/her own behaviour in that situation and his/her interaction with the other agents. On the other hand, it serves to practice psychological skills in their own field and detect trainning needs in situ.
