Abstract [en]

Eriksson. C. (2010). How can mental top form be reached? Sport psychology consultants approach to mental training. Bachelor Thesis in Public Health. Gävle University, Academy of health and working life. The purpose of this study was to examine sport psychology consultants perceptions about mental training, and how they believe that mental top form could be achieved. Qualitative interviews were used as method. In total, five informants participated in the study. The result that emerged was that the informants felt that mental top form is about creating a balance between all parts of life. Trust for himself and his character was also important as well as the ideas you have. Becoming aware of the thought processes and learn to control those in a favorable direction is important. The basis for achieving mental top form was considered to bring the basic tension in the body. It was important to have clear goals. It was also essential to provide continuity in the mental training to achieve results. A powerful tool to use was considered to be the goal images, which means to see pictures of yourself for your inner that you want to work in different situations. Furthermore, it was important to stop and get to know yourself and your needs. Mental strength was considered to be the deciding factor when all other variables are equivalent. Should all work out mentally, it would be a higher minimum level because everyone would emerge. The conclusion of this study is that the mental training techniques used in sport can also be transferred to other contexts and to other groups of people to create mental health. But it is difficult to determine precisely which techniques each one needs because all seek out different things and all have different needs. It is of great importance to the mental workout is tailored to the individual's needs.
