*EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing)is an information processing therapy that helps clients cope with trauma, addictions, and phobias. During this treatment, the patient focuses on a specific thought, image, emotion, or sensation while simultaneously watching the therapist’s finger or baton move in front of his or her eyes. The client is told to recognize what comes up for him/her when thinking of an image; then the patient is told to let it go while doing bilateral stimulation. It is like being on a train; an emotion or a thought may come up and the client is supposed to let it pass as though he were looking out the window of a moving train.

Sport Psychology

Sport psychology scrutinizes mental and emotional aspects of human behaviors before, during, and after physical activities in various athletic environments.

The principles of modern sport psychology interventions integrate and teach aspects of cognitive-behavioral psychology, neurology, psychophysiology, holistic modalities, and sport-exercise science in order to sustain the athletes’ awareness of the enigmatic connection regarding mental process, physical ability, and performance.

The goal of sport psychology intervention is to help athletes to improve their performance, manage critical moments in competitions, increases resistance against stressful situations, balance anxiety levels, enhance competitive intensity, develop self-confidence and motivation, and harmonize the well-being.
Sport psychologists work with professional teams and athletes to enhance their performance through applying team, individual, or private consulting, evaluating athletes’ strengths and weaknesses, and monitoring their psycho-physiological reactions (ECG or HRV) in critical moments of performance or sport-related stress situations.

In professional sport environment, current sport psychologists apply sport psychology related techniques for the athletes’ emotional and mental control that synthesize concepts of concentration, self-talk, goal setting, relaxation, and imagery. Monitoring the training process with effective learning skills abilities and especially training endurance and intensity with optimum anxiety levels, stress management and recovery strategies have become principal tasks and well-sought prerequisites for sport psychologists. Sport psychology training is applicable for any professional or amateur sportsmen such as soccer player, tennis player, golfers, rugby players, athletes, runners, and so on.

Heart Rate Variability (HRV) biofeedback is psycho- physiological measurement (Heart Rate-ECG, Blood Pressure, and Respiration) to diagnose autonomic regulation, stress resistance, cardiovascular health, and vitality in persons. Heart Rate Variability (HRV) means changes in the interval or distance between one beat of the heart and the next. The interbeat interval (IBI) is the time between one R-wave (or heart beat) and the next, in milliseconds. The IBI is highly variable within any given time period. HRV is analyzed in two ways, either over time (Time Domain) or in terms of the frequency of changes in Heart Rate (Frequency Domain).

HRV biofeedback training is a special technique for training individuals to change their variability as well as dominant heart rhythms in cardiovascular activity in order to increase their vitality and health. HRV biofeedback is applied to a variety of medical and psychiatric conditions such as: anger, anxiety disorders, stress disorder, depression, asthma, cardiovascular problems, or chronic fatigue. Biofeedback training suites for individuals who would like to increase the percentage of total HRV (vitality) by proper breathing exercises in order to adjust their “resonant frequency” and, thus, generate autonomic balance of the nervous system between sympathetic and parasympathetic tone.

Each individual has a “resonant frequency” at which heart rate variability is the greatest and the most vital for their organism. This “resonant frequency” is measured by HRV biofeedback instruments and it is a training of the heart rhythm by respiration called Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia (RSA). This “resonant frequency” is mostly produced by persons in a relaxed mental state, with a positive emotional stage, and especially by diaphragmatic breathing at a rate of about 5-7 breaths per minute. Thus, individuals in HRV biofeedback training are directly taught to increasing their HRV parameters and, consequently, improve their mental health, vitality, autonomic balance.
