Sports Supports Online Course: Foundations of Ego Psychology
An introduction to the fundamental elements of ego psychology in a sport specific setting.
Congratulations on taking the first step towards unlimited potential, success and happiness! We’re so pleased you have decided to join us on the path to unlocking your true potential. This is the first step, and a comprehensive one at that.
We are here to teach you that your potential is only as limited as your thinking and belief. Belief is not solid. Your belief is as malleable as your potential is.
This course is an introduction to the fundamental elements of ego psychology in a sport specific setting, in regards to how your conditioning and subsequent belief systems and structures, impede the progress towards your potential.
The course has been designed so that it is self paced and flexible, so you can take all the time you need to listen, contemplate, discover, and absorb the content included in this course. So work through the modules as fast or slow as you please, but we do encourage you to take your time.
The course is broken up into nine modules, each with a lesson, which is an audio recording of about 20 minutes in length. Some of the modules contain practical tool exercises, of which are accompanied by an explanation video. There are also bonus recordings included. Each module is completed with a questions component, which we have called your personal journal. This is where the gold is!
The personal journal questions are an opportunity and time to reflect upon what you have just learnt, and to apply these learning's to your own sport, fitness and/or life’s goals. We encourage you to take the time to yourself to complete these questions following each module. Find a quiet space and give yourself this time to look within.
The course can be viewed on any computer browser, or via the app on your phone. The app gives you the flexibility to log in any where, at any time, and for athletes the added bonus of listening to and using one of the included tools at a training session or race. We thought this was a nice little inclusion!
It is natural to have questions so we have a private forum to support your learning, of which you are welcome to post questions and discussion whenever you feel. Your registration allows you to access this forum, and we attempt to reply within 24 hours.
If you feel you would like some more individual attention to accompany your learning and self discovery, please book an individual consultation with Grant or Christie. You can do this via our website at any time.
Enough from us, welcome to the course, and we really do hope you get a lot of enjoyment from this journey of self discovery.
All the best!
Grant and Christie
Grant Giles has been involved in elite level sport for over 30 years. First as an athlete in both surfing and triathlon, and then as a coach, working with juniors, amateurs, right through to the professional level.
Grant's work with athletes, particularly at the elite level, along with his own battle with anxiety and depression, sparked an intense interest in psychology. In 2008 Grant commenced studies in ego psychology and the nature of consciousness, which has lead to his teaching in this area, both within and outside of sport.
Not only is Grant a Triathlon Australian Level 3 Triathlon High Performance Coach, a hypnotherapist and a strategic psychotherapist. Grant works with athletes of all levels who seek to find their true potential, coaches who wish to understand the psychology of their athletes better, business owners or those involved in the corporate sector, and has a special interest in those that suffer from anxiety and/or depressive thought.
Grant designed this course alongside his wife Christie to allow a self paced learning environment that covers the fundamentals of ego psychology in a sport specific context.
Grant feels that he has found his purpose in life, being to educate people about their own true nature, to teach awareness and compassion for self and others, and to learn to live from a place of authenticity. It is within this space that your ultimate potential can be reached.
