Show Notes Chapter Markers

I am joined in this episode by chartered Sport Psychologist Jo Davies. Jo runs a sport psychology consultancy, based out of Reigate in Surrey, and is the sport psychology lead at The Army Elite Athlete Performance Centre, working with the Army Target Shooting and Army Boxing Teams. She is also a sport psychologist for TASS (the Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme) and previously worked with the academy athletes at Surrey County cricket. She also supports several scholars at British Universities and is a guest lecturer at undergraduate and masters level sport psychology programs. How does she fit it all in…!?

In our conversation we talk about Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) and its applications in Sport - in particular the role of values, and how clarity over these can be beneficial for both individuals and teams.
