PROFILE

My name is Veronika Blaskova and I am working as a sport psychologist. I am helping athletes to become stronger in their mental strength and reach their best potential. During my tennis career, I have understood that sport psychology is enormously important for successful competitive sport. This is the reason why I have chosen sport psychology major. Mental practice is as significant as technical, tactical or conditioning practice. Therefore, mental practice should become part of every practice process. Accordingly, I am helping other athletes to reach their best performance and fulfill their highest goals.
