I’m currently in the middle of reading the excellent The Chimp Paradox book by Dr Steve Peters which has been recommended by members in a book thread on the site. Thought I would share this video I found of him presenting at TEDxYouth in Manchester back in 2012. He blitzes the concept explained in the book but I thought the video provided a useful summary. For those who haven’t heard of him he is a Consultant Psychiatrist working full time in Elite Sport. He works/has worked with the UK Athletics, British Cycling, Sky Pro Cycling teams and has had involvements with a further twelve Olympic Sports as well as England Rugby and Premier league Football.
Thanks for posting the video! I'm also currently reading 'The Chimp Paradox' and would recommend it to anyone. It's a fascinating insight into what's going on inside your brain.
No worries Steve! I’m finding it a great book so far and as you say an absolutely fascinating read

Hi Claire. Thanks for posting the link (I can confirm it works). I’m sure you’re going to have an awesome experience at the workshops…very jealous!

MLP Thanks for the Post. I have read Dr Peters books and try to apply them to my coaching. Also in my own life, the video is very informative and his reputation in the field of sports is wonderful and great to learn from , especially when applying them .
