Episode 4 - A Different Kind of Personal Best

“Everyone, however experienced, can benefit from coaching and emotional skill development.” Wise words from today’s podcast guest, Elite Performance Coach & Performance Psychologist, Stuart Holliday.

He has his own consultancy - Focused Mind Coaching and works as the Asics UK in-house psychologist, as well as a coach at Sanctus who partner with businesses in the workplace to create an open environment where mental health is supported and people can bring their full self to work. He has private sporting clients and conducts endurance research alongside Prof. Andy Lane & Dan Robinson at the University of Wolverhampton. 

Prior to running Focused Mind Coaching, Stuart spent 4 years working for Professor Steve Peters at Chimp Management supporting Olympic and Paralympic squads, the England Netball Team and Liverpool FC. Stuart believes in applying his Olympic experience and standards to wellbeing and performance in order to make minds healthier and fitter.

In this candid episode, I talk with Stuart about how he manages his own emotions as a practitioner, as a psychologist, and running his own business in order to be able to operate at his best for the service of his clients. We also discuss the role of spirituality in a psychologist’s world, his view on what motivation really means, and much more. Don’t miss this one!
