MENTAL BLOCKS with Natascha Wesch
Natascha is a sports psychologist, working at Western, that spent an evening with the CSR coaches, sharing her wealth of experience with, and knowledge of mental blocks in sport. We learned about what causes mental blocks in young athletes and the best strategies for helping them regain their skills through safe and slow progression, paired with supportive and positive thinking.
