Sports Psychologist

I am a sports psychologist focusing on supporting and developing mental skills in professional and hobby athletes. As a runner, I am closest to endurance sports, and my most frequent clients are runners, cross-country skiers, biathlonists, cyclists, or swimmers. Besides them, shooters also use psychological services very often. However, I also work with entire sports clubs, footballers, floorballers, and hockey players. My office is in Brno, but we meet with clients outside Brno online.

Office: Divadelní 6, Brno, Czech Republic

I obtained psychological education from Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. After completing my master’s degree, I continued with doctoral studies in clinical psychology, which I achieved by obtaining a Ph.D. in 2010. In addition, I participated in many psychotherapeutic trainings and courses. I specialize mainly in sports psychology because, as an amateur athlete, I am very close to the community.

Clients feedback


I contacted David because I was going through a period of uncertainty (health limitations). … David himself does a lot of sports and, therefore, understands an active person’s soul and life. He is a great listener and can advise on how to proceed in a given situation.


Thanks to him, I assured myself that I enjoy running the way I do … I successfully participated in the Czech National Uphill Running Championships on the Ještěd mountain, although I was initially more worried about the journey and related issues.


Very nice and friendly. It’s been two years since he helped me, and I still benefit from his advice and recommendations…
