Find Athletes Therapists & Counselors in Bolingbrook, IL.

 

As an athlete, you may deal with physical and mental problems that can threaten your ability to play or make it harder to live everyday life. That’s where an athletic counselor can help.

Sports counselors or sports psychologists can help you cope with the unrelenting pressure of being an athlete, as well as identify your own values and desires for your athletic career.

Whether you are located in downtown Bolingbrook, the suburbs of Bolingbrook, other nearby places such as Naperville, Wheaton, or anywhere else in Illinois, Mental Health Match can help you easily find an experienced therapist or counselor who best meets your needs.

Do You Need Sports Therapy?

Sports therapy can help you if you’re dealing with any of the following situations:

  • You struggle to meet the demands of the sport.
  • You’ve suffered an injury and are finding it hard to cope.
  • You have anxiety about your performance or the outcome of games.
  • You have symptoms of stress, including digestive problems, unhealthy sleeping habits, headaches, etc.
  • You aren’t sure if you want to dedicate your career to sports.

In addition to affecting your game-playing ability, the issues listed above can also cause problems in daily life. As former NBA player Ben Gordon writes, a lot of athletes feel like they need to keep the pressures of their career to themselves, and doing so creates a lot of harm for your mind, body, and performance.
