Abstract

Given the personal and sensitive nature of mental disorders, and the stigmas to disclosure that often exist in high performance sport, it was not surprising to learn from Roberts et al. (2016) that the Sport Psychologist, with whom the CMD athlete is likely to have a confidential, trusting, and empathic working relationship, is the person they are most likely to seek out for support. For me, the capacity of the Sport Psychologist to provide the support being sought depends on their competence to both consult with, and refer, athletes with CMD, and the extent to which their own practice philosophy and counseling based training informs their consultancy approach. These two issues form the focus of this commentary.
