Melbourne-based provisional psychologist Darren Godwin works with Australia's largest sport and performance psychology practice, Condor Performance

Professional sports teams have the services or psychologists to help players navigate the ups and downs of competition and their own doubts and motivation.

He says tween and teens athletes and their parents can benefit from the same sort of assistance.
