Overcome difficult moments with the help of psychological counseling!!

What psychological counseling entails

At Superfit you can choose from specialized psychological counseling or psychotherapy services in two main ways:

  • Treatment of eating disorders and support for lifestyle change

Given the currently distorted standards of beauty and weight, a person who wants to have a “perfect” image is at risk of developing an eating disorder.

Eating disorders are characterized by a persistent impairment of eating or eating habits, which results in improper consumption or absorption of food and harms physical health or psychosocial functioning.

Examples of eating disorders are: anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, compulsive eating, Pica syndrome, rumination.

  • Achieving potential and achieving sports performance

Performance athletes are distinguished by increased physical endurance, an often oversized self-image (necessary to achieve performance) and high self-esteem.

Most athletes have an intrinsic motivation to achieve perfection, but this is often supplemented by the pressure that parents, coaches or society put on the athlete.

In addition, in performance sports, competitions can be severe stressors, both mentally and physically. When the pressure of these competitions is added to other difficulties already existing in the athlete's life, the risk of not reaching their potential increases significantly.

In both situations, at Superfit we are with you with psychological counseling sessions to overcome the mental challenges related to nutrition or sports
