Hi everyone and welcome back to the Believe Move Grow podcast. I’ve been on a mini hiatus but I’m back with a cracker of an episode! Today’s episode is centred around the notion of teenage athletes’ mental fitness. This is a timely episode with the increased prevalence of high-profile athletes opening about their mental health struggles. I think it is key that those involved in a young athlete’s journey, including the athlete themselves, have an awareness of the importance to train the mind as well as the body. My guest today is Josie Perry who is a Chartered Psychologist. Josie works with those in sport, on the stage and in business. I invited Josie along to chat about her fantastic book ‘I Can: The Teenage Athletes Guide to Mental Fitness’. In my conversation with Josie, we discussed how Josie prioritises wellbeing first and performance second, her personal experience with PE, self-identify in a youth athlete and the importance of young athletes being confident to ask questions. So, without further ado please enjoy my conversation with Josie Perry.
