*  Whilst this course will help you develop your understanding of sports psychotherapy/counselling and how it is applied in the field, it will not provide you with psychotherapy or counselling skills, nor does it qualify you to call yourself a Sports Psychotherapist or Sports Counsellor. *

So, for now, settle in and get started learning about Sports Psychotherapy. We hope you enjoy it.
