Dr Pete and Hugh explore the importance of confidence. In this episode, we interview two athletes: Britain’s number 1 shot putter and World Championship finalist, Sophie Mckinna, and Rio 2016 Paralympic Silver medallist (Para Powerlifting) and Crohn’s disease warrior, Ali Jawad. We get some fascinating insights into what confidence means to them, how they build and maintain confidence when things don’t go according to plan, and the important role that psychologists and coaches can have in making or breaking confidence when it matters.
