Lvl up your skills while being AFK 👾
What if you could buff your mind and have the effects become a permanent passive ability? What if, instead of feeling on tilt, raging, or weaponizing that frustration through toxicity, you could know exactly why you’re experiencing what you’re experiencing and be in control of how you respond?
Reasons to utilize esports psychology
We work with esports athletes by helping them overcome emotional and mental barriers that may interfere with their peak performance.
It doesn't matter how much time you spend training or practicing — if you're unable to focus on what you're doing, then all of your hard work is basically for nothing. Sports psychologists teach mental skills that esports athletes can use to train their minds to stay focused when they need it most.
Increase confidence and self-esteem
Confidence comes from self-awareness and belief in your own skills. It's the starting point for all the other skills you'll need to perform at a high level. If you lack confidence, you may struggle with performance anxiety and low self-esteem, which will ultimately lead to poor performance during gameplay.
Develop skills to deal with setbacks and errors
As athletes, we all have to learn how to bounce back from adversity. Failure is part of the game — but the ability to bounce back from mistakes can be the difference between winning and losing. Sports psychologists teach esports athletes how to deal with setbacks and errors without losing their motivation for gaming or being a part of a team.
Learn to manage performance anxiety
Many esports athletes struggle to achieve peak performance due to performance anxiety. You might worry that a mistake or poor play will cost you the game or what other players might think of you. Sports psychologists can help you overcome this type of anxiety by helping you understand how it works and how to control it.
Strengthen skills for impulse control
Esports athletes need to maintain a balance between being emotional and letting their emotions get the best of them. Sports psychologists help gamers learn to control their impulses so that they do not let them affect their gameplay. We teach you how to recognize when you have lost control of your emotions and what steps you can take to regain control.
Become the most OP version of yourself
Sports psychology is about learning how to thrive in the face of challenges and adversity by adopting a growth mindset. This means that you are constantly improving, even if just by 1%, every day. By increasing your awareness and learning “right effort,” gaming can help you become the most OP version of yourself.
