I’m delighted to speak with sport psychologist Rebecca Symes in this episode. Rebecca works with elite and professional athletes to enhance performance and wellbeing. She is currently psychologist for GB women’s Hockey. Rebecca also runs her own consultancy, Sporting Success, which has seen her work with clients including Surrey County Cricket Club, Archery GB; England and Wales Cricket Board; and England Athletics. Her work with Archery GB has taken her to two Paralympics. She has also held roles at the FA across the men’s and women’s pathways.
We speak about personal and athletic identity; the impact of language; identity foreclosure; psychological recovery; and career transitions.
