In this episode I speak with chartered occupational psychologist, Sarah Broadhead. Sarah is Director and founder of Broadhead Performance which aims to give individuals and organisations in sport and business the insight, skills and support they need to perform and thrive.
She has worked in a range of sports including GB Taekwondo, British Swimming, GB Canoeing, Archery GB, UK Athletics and GB Triathlon. Sarah was part of the Director team that created Chimp Management with Professor Steve Peters, shaping the vision of the company.
In this episode we discuss Sarah’s fantastic new book “Perform & Thrive: A Sportsperson’s Guide to Mental Health and Wellbeing” which examines how sportspeople keep on top of wellbeing and the mental side in both sporting performances and life overall. Taking a deep dive into the elements that really count, and identify what can be done - practically - to provide sportspeople with the best possible chance of success.
Filled with real-world examples, findings from the latest research, plus life stories from top athletes, this book - for athletes and coaches - is a must-read for nurturing people who wish to perform and thrive.
