Counselling in sports is relatively unknown among researchers in Malaysia. Golfers like many athletes in competitive sports are often subjected to many psychological apprehensions. Researchers in Malaysia give little attention to the adverse effects of mental games and yips amongst golfers. Among the symptoms associated with the effects of mental games and yips are anxiety and loss of self-confidence, especially when trying to putt in critical situation. They often sweat and display feelings of awkwardness when performing under intense pressure. The aim of this study is to examine the effectiveness of Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy ABC (REBT ABC) module of treatment when overcoming psychological apprehensions faced by golfers. A combination of both qualitative and quantitative approaches was used. Factorial design of 2 x 2 was chosen as research design. A total of 28 golfers with handicaps that ranged between 0 to18 took part in the study. Rowe's Mental Game Test and Rowe's Yips Test were used to diagnose golfers with various psychological apprehensions. The REBT ABC treatment modules were measured as independent variable while mental game and yips as dependent variables. Respondents were divided into two groups, namely the REBT ABC treatment group and the control group. Each group consisted of 14 people. Respondents who were assigned into the treatment group were subjected to six short clustered counselling sessions for six weeks. For quantitative data analysis, both the paired t-test and independent t-test were used to determine the effectiveness of the REBT ABC treatment. Both theme and content analysis were used to consolidate the quantitative findings. The results showed that the REBT ABC treatment module was able to overcome the apprehensions associated with mental game and yips amongst golfers. Thus, results from the theme and content analysis further congealed the effectiveness of the REBT ABC treatment module subjected to the respondents. The results of this study suggest that counselling is pertinent in the field of sports especially in grooming competitive athletes. Thus, active involvement of counsellor in sports among sports-related organisations is proposed.
