The athlete will bring a variety of issues into the office, and by far, the most common syndromes are anxiety, self-doubt and loss of confidence, which has led to a protracted slump. This happens on all levels of sports from the young amateur, to the world's most elite professional. Athletes also can present with depression, burnt out, injury proneness, drug addiction, loneliness or anger. Family and team issues are not uncommon. Symptoms are often treated using a combination of standard suppressive techniques in addition to supportive psychotherapy.
