Forensic Psychiatry, Elite Sport and You...

… there is more in common than you might think! Learn about the similarities and the differences of the mind and how this knowledge and insight can help you to improve your own life and functioning.

Described as a ‘genius’ by GB cycling coach Dave Brailsford, Steve is a consultant psychiatrist and bestselling author and has worked closely with many of the UK’s most prominent athletes, including Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton.

In addition to his extraordinary success with British cycling, Steve has worked on twelve other Olympic disciplines as well as with Premier League and English national rugby and football teams, with an unparalleled reputation for giving people an edge – as well as the confidence to overcome defeat.

In his book ‘The Chimp Paradox’, Steve explores how to deal with fear and ‘become the person you want to be’, visualising and breaking challenges into small stages, focusing on the process rather than the outcome.
