Elliot Smith Sport Psychology

I have a passion for supporting people to engage and thrive in sports and exercise, whether that be in elite-level competition or at the local gym. Success can be however you define it, and I believe a suitable balance between physical and psychological training can allow you to achieve success. The services I provide can be beneficial for any athlete, sports coach, or organisation that strives to improve. These services can be tailored specifically for your own needs and desires, representing a unique and specialised kind of support.

I have experience working in a variety of different settings. For example, football, golf, tennis, trampolining, athletics, mixed martial arts, rugby, table tennis, gymnastics, skiing and CrossFit. I have been able to support individuals ranging from 8 years old all the way to 60+ years old. Whether you have aspirations of a professional career in sport, or there's an upcoming competition that you are passionate about, or you simply play sport because it's something you enjoy and it's good for your health. I can cater for all types of needs. 


Whilst I can support you in various directions

 I could provide services for:

  • Performing under pressure

  • Motivation and confidence

  • Focus, concentration and attention

  • Group workshops and seminars

  • Managing anxiety, relaxation training and mindfulness

  • Visualisation and imagery

  • Pre- and post- competition strategies

  • Rehabilitation and recovery

  • Wellbeing and welfare support

Based in Bedfordshire, I am currently completing my final stages of training in becoming a Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) registered Sport and Exercise Psychologist, via the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES). I am prepared to work face-to-face, and via online resources such as Skype, Microsoft Teams, and other apps that use FaceTime such as WhatsApp, Facebook etc.
It takes bravery and courage to ask for support, these may be your first steps in understanding how you can enhance and improve the qualities you already posses. Please do not hesitate to contact me.

I look forward to working with you.
