PHYSIO FOR THE MIND, BODY AND SOUL
Welcome to Sporting Chance.
Inspired by his own recovery from alcoholism, Sporting Chance is the brainchild of former Arsenal and England captain Tony Adams, MBE. Based on his experience, and what he felt was lacking, Tony saw the need for a safe, dedicated environment where current and former sportsmen and women could receive support and counselling for the kinds of destructive behaviour patterns that exist in the world of competitive sport.
Sporting Chance has since developed into one of the world's most innovative centres for the treatment of emotional and behavioural problems among professional and former professional sportspeople.

About Our Services
Sporting Chance provides support to current and retired sportsmen and women in three core areas; we are probably best known for our residential clinic which treats individuals who are suffering from addictive disorders related to gambling, alcohol or the misuse of other substances.
However, lots of people who contact us do not suffer from addiction but are struggling with other issues in their lives such as bereavement, depression, anxiety or difficulties with transition. Our nationwide therapy and counselling network enables our clients to access confidential, professional support to work through issues which not only impact on their quality of life but in many cases, their ability to perform to their best.
Thirdly, but no less importantly, we have developed a programme of education and training that we deliver directly to sporting organisations across the UK. Our seminars are designed to promote awareness of the increasing number of athletes in the sporting arena who have experienced problems with addiction, emotional wellbeing or mental health issues and the proactive steps that they and their employers can take with regards to prevention and treatment.
We are proud that our services have become an integral part of the welfare programme for our stakeholders including the Professional Footballers' Association (PFA), the Football Association (FA), the Premier League (PL), League Football Education (LFE) the Rugby Football League (RFL), the Professional Cricketers’ Association (PCA), the Professional Jockeys’ Association (PJA) and Sport Northern Ireland (SNI).
