I am honoured to be joined by Dr Christian Zepp in this episode. Christian splits his time between lecturing at The German Sport University in Cologne and consulting as an applied sport psychologist. Christian obtained his PhD in sport sciences with a focus on sport psychology at the Institute of Psychology at The German Sport University.
Christian has more than 20 years’ experience in high-performance sport and has worked in multiple sports including being sport psychologist for the German National Table Tennis team and the National Team Coach for the disabled standing volleyball team in Cambodia.
We speak in depth about the role of sport psychology – what it is and what it isn’t; common objections to using it; how it can help coaches and the possibilities it can open up for them and their athletes; and the importance of investing time with athletes to create trust.
