🎙 About The Episode

Today I’m joined by Professor Steve Peters. He’s a world renowned psychologist who’s dedicated himself to understanding the way the human mind works. He’s worked with elite athletes like the Olympic cyclists Sir Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton, 5-time snooker world champion Ronnie O’Sullivan, as well as the England football team, to help them overcome mental barriers and optimise their performance. He’s best-known for his book, ‘The Chimp Paradox’, which has sold millions of copies worldwide. The book gives us a mind management approach based on the idea that there are three forces which govern our brains. The emotional and primal ‘chimp’ is impulsive and often anxious, while our inner human is calm, logical, and rational. This system can help us better understand our behaviour and handle moments of stress and difficulty. In this episode we’re going to talk about how to use the Chimp Model to change your life, and how it can revolutionise the way you see yourself and others. You’ll get an insight into Professor Steve Peters’ world renowned coaching methods that have helped so many people lead happier, healthier and more successful lives. Enjoy!
