This virtual hub offers coaching support to individuals and training courses on Positive Psychology for Sport, Exercise, and Movement. The focus is on the Psychology of Performance, Stress, and Recovery. 

It is also a space where I share insights from my postgraduate studies in Exercise & Sport Psychology, and reflect on my current research on the Psychophysiology of Fear, Action, and Movement.

I work in partnership with the Positive Psychology Guild (PPG), where I direct operations, research, and education, and where Inner Athletics partners on the Somatics & Kinaesthetics Initiative. The courses you see below are each accredited by PPG and due to launch in June 2021.

To discuss whether Positive Psychology could support your performance in life, work, or sport, or to explore learning or collaborative research on Positive Psychology, please drop me a line at: claire@innerathletics.com
