This work introduces the InSynergy Sport Emotional Insight (ISFEI Game Cards) as an explorative counselling framework with the aim of assisting sports psychology practitioners in understanding how athletes experience emotions. This tool is designed to quickly elicit clients’ deep experience narratives in non-clinical settings. The authors first explain how the ISFEI Game Cards was conceived; they then introduce the Chaos and Complexity Theory, as the theoretical foundation of this framework, and describe both the structure and the recommended method for the use of ISFEI. Finally, clients’ feedbacks and future trends are reported as starting points for improving the framework.
