In this episode, I’m joined by Dr. Martin Turner. Martin is Senior Lecturer in Sport Psychology at Staffordshire University. He’s worked in a wide range of sports and is currently Lead Psychologist for the English futsal team. Martin is interested in using a counselling framework called Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy (REBT) to improve the performance and enhance the mental health of competitors from all sports. In this episode Martin and I talk about how coaches can use REBT, the relationship between thoughts, feelings and performance; the problem with extreme language; developing flexible thinking and embracing helpful negatives.
