2: Managing Setbacks in Sport and Beyond!

In this episode I talk to Dr Josephine Perry, Sports & Exercise Psychologist and Established Author about coping with setbacks. Dr Josephine works with athletes, sports stars, actors; supporting them to manage injury, perfectionism, performance anxiety, rejection and barriers to performance.

This episode will appeal not just to those in sport but to anyone wanting to find out more about how we respond to setbacks and overcoming performance anxiety. She talks strategies for managing setbacks and how our brain responds to threat of failure or lowered performance.

We talk, setbacks in sport and other high performance roles, normalising feelings and reactions, the impact on mental health, mindset and recovery and factors impacting the recovery journey. Come join us!
