Talk Sport

Being a sports person whether amateur or professional requires dedication, commitment and sacrifice, varying depending on how important our chosen sport is to us as an individual and to us within our social network.

If you play 5 a side football because the banter at the pub after practice or a game is great, that can be the reason to want it to continue.

If you change locations and sport encourages you to get to know new people and to feel confident about who you are even in unfamiliar surroundings, that’s good enough reason to participate.

If work or relationships aren’t going to well but having a run out in the fresh air, getting sweaty and pushing yourself physically helps you cope, then that’s justification to keep pushing.

But what if all the benefits of sport and physical activities are taken away from you through injury, work commitments, your age, your face not fitting or many other reasons individual to you, how will you deal with it?

Try Talking counselling is here to help you through this process in preparation to ease your transition, during a period of injury or once you have retired and you are rebuilding.

If sport and physically activity makes you who you are, don’t struggle to cope alone with the impact of not being able to participate, Talk Sport.

Counselling fees are £50 per session, there are discounts available for block booking of 6 sessions or more.

Counselling sessions are 50 minutes and are typically arranged for weekly or fortnightly appointments.

Talk e-Sport

If you consider yourself part of the e-Sport or video game culture, whether you prefer multiplayer games with your mates or you have dedicate your life to making gaming your profession, your gaming maybe effecting your mental health.

Sporting partnerships

Try Talking Ltd continues to look for ways to encourage sports people and athletes to use mental health support during their competitive activities or in preparation for retirement. We are looking to partner with sports clubs, associations and organisations to bring the Try Talking counselling to their members.

Whether it is the endorsement of our service and signposting of members towards our support, to agreements to run clinics from sporting facilities, Try Talking Ltd are keen to discuss options.

As managers of sports clubs, associations and organisations we have a responsibility to empathise, support and encourage positive mental health performance as well as physical health performance, but the stigma remains and it will be stopping some of your members seeking support today.

Together with Try Talking Ltd we can fight the stigma and ensure all of your members are getting the support they need and reaching their potential. Click here to find out more about the Try Talking Partnership options.
