PERFORMANCE, STRESS & RECOVERY
for LIFE, EXERCISE & SPORT
The Inner Athletics Research Map© explores how people flourish and excel in life, exercise, and sport, and the role of movement, mind, philosophy, and environment in this process.
Underpinning most of my research is the science of Positive Psychology and Exercise & Sport Psychology. In the past, we have also explored the role of Jungian Psychology in post-traumatic growth, specifically with regard to archetypal journeys and finding lost parts of ourselves.
I partner with the Positive Psychology Guild on research initiatives and projects. I also take a keen interest in the research needs of exercise and sport professionals and practitioners, and those who practice broader movement forms such as dance, yoga, and martial arts.
Areas of research include:
Exercise, Sport & Mental Health
Creativity, Movement & Wellbeing
Cognitive Functioning for Performance
Positive & Negative Emotions and States
Self-Defence & Martial Arts Training for Women
Embodiment & Mastery in the Martial Arts
