Benefits of psychology classes

Afp, Teresopolis

The Brazil team's use of a psychologist is helping them cope mentally with the huge burden of expectation that comes with trying to win the World Cup on home soil, according to Neymar.
Coach Luiz Felipe Scolari brought sports psychologist Regina Brandao in to work with the squad on Tuesday.
Neymar insisted on Wednesday that working with Brandao has been beneficial.
"I had never done anything like it before and I am quite enjoying it," said the forward, who stepped up to score Brazil's crucial last penalty against Chile in Belo Horizonte.
"It is not only us, in football, who are surrounded by emotion every day and need psychologists. I think it could do every person good, to make one more relaxed.
"We have a very good relationship with Regina Brandao. She is a great person. I am learning a lot and I hope to continuing doing it."
Neymar has scored four goals so far at this World Cup and has too often appeared to be the Selecao's only genuine source of inspiration.
