The Sporting Difference was been set up by Chartered Sport psychologist Steffi Dampney, BSC, MSc, MBPsS, CPsychol, who endeavours to help both individuals and teams perform at their best.


Nowadays in sport many, if not most, of the physical aspects are covered, be it nutrition, strength and conditioning, fitness, physio, the list goes on!  However there often seems to be a missing link to achieving that elusive optimal performance... This is where sport psychology comes in.  When you spend so much time and effort training the physical, why not also apply yourself to the mental?  

Steffi works from the perspective that behind every athlete is a person, and by first taking the time to understand this person, Steffi can the help them explore who they are and how they can achieve their potential.  This includes recognising the impact that their energy levels, their well-being, their environment and their support network can have on them.  This ultimately allows them to appreciate the relationship they have between their thoughts, feelings, physiology and behaviours.  By doing this, she hopes to develop each athlete holistically, allowing them to consistently perform at their best.
