No, mental training should begin months before athletes face psychological stressors. If you wait till mental burnout then it defeats the purpose of building mental stamina. It is advisable to start mental training early on to develop the strongest mindset, build resilience, and prevent mental burnout. Before the pressure hits, athletes should know how to handle the game pressure so that they can flourish under intense competitive conditions.

Team or Group Workshops typically last for 2 hours per session.
It depends on every individuals goals and needs. One consultation session is enough to identify an athletes strengths and weaknesses but not sufficient to conduct rigorous mental training. 4-6 sessions are ideal for achieving short term goals. Some athletes require more training to develop a positive mindset while others pick it up in a few sessions. 6-10 sessions are essential for more intensive training and developing sporting resilience. Regular mental training on a weekly basis can also be conducted in more than 10 sessions in the months leading up to international tournaments for pro athletes who are serious about their game.
Online Counselling sessions are conducted over voice or video chats at a designated time decided by the individual and the counsellor. One must have access to a digital connection, internet, and privacy in your area to ensure comfort and confidentiality.

All you need to begin is an open and accepting mindset. Counselling begins by talking about your problems and building trust with the counsellor to help address and solve your issues. Most people who started counselling wish they had gotten started with it sooner and saved all the time they suffered on their own.
