    Hello I am Suchika Siotia from India.
    I am a Masters student in Psychology.
    I have undertaken this course in order to gain experience of what exactly is sports psychology. Moreover my interest in this area is new so my curiosity has led me to undertake this course, this curiosity is because I Recently I got a chance to intern in Malaysia National Sports Institute under Dr Jolly Roy. All thanks to her.
    I have no hands on experience in sports. Nor do I have a favorite sport .
    This course would help me understand the field and also I would be able to see if I could include my Hypnotherapy Knowledge in the sport field.

    Hello Everyone,
    Ny name is Kai and I signed up for this course in order to gain more knowledge and tools to further strengthen my training from graduate school. My favorite sport would definitely have to be soccer which I have competed and coached at various levels throughout my life. I have a few years experience working within the field of sport psychology, consulting with various collegiate and high school athletes. I am hoping to learn more about the application of evidence based techniques as well as the steps to creating a comprehensive mental skills training program.

    Hi, Jimmy here.

    I used to be a swimming coach for the past 10 years but in recent years i have switched to rock climbing as my main sport of interest.

    Always been very interested about the the physiological preparation for athletes and so would want to learn more and hopefully apply it on my climbers in future to come.

    on a personal note, i used to play a number of sports, but again in recent years, rock climbing has been the main sport for me.

    Thank you for this great opportunity to learn more.

    Best Regards,
    Jimmy

    Hi all,
    I’m CH from Singapore. I am currently a swimming coach but focuses mainly on children / teenagers (non-elite). I do not have any formal knowledge of sport psychology and I was hoping to see how knowledge learn here can be adapted for my level of coaching. I hope to see if the mental training program can be developed for beginner level or even for those (especially senior) who is thinking of developing to their best at recreational level.

    Dear Suchika
    You were lucky to have the opportunity for an internship with Dr Jolly Roy at ISN in Malaysia. Dr Jolly is a very experienced sport psychologist and a beautiful person. I visit ISN regularly and will be back there in March 2016. I hope that you find a way to apply your hypnotherapy skills in sport. Have you found any readings on the subject that you could share with your fellow learners?
    Regards
    Peter

    Hi everyone,
    My name is Randell and I am from Singapore

    Why you have signed up for this course?
    I signed up for this course as I have been coaching martial arts and other adventure activities.
    Currently, me and my trainers are looking at how we can develop a our training programs to allow faster retention of learning and longer embedding of skill sets.

    What is your favourite sport?
    I love cross training in various martial arts (especially weapon-based systems)
    I am also an active member of the local action-shooting community and safety officer for IDPA.

    Do you play sport or involved in coaching?
    I have competed in martial arts for 10 and then been coaching for about 12 years.
    Currently, my team and I run a number of martial arts exposure and niche training programs for schools, civic organisations and individuals.

    Do you have any experience of psychology or sport psychology?
    What are you hoping to get out of this course?
    I have no formal training in psychology.
    However in both martial arts and shooting, a lot of emphasis is given to the ‘inner’ game of visualisation, mental resiliency.
    I wanted to take this course to upskill myself and better develop my coaching skills.
