In sport, there is a fine line between success and defeat - what makes a winner? Philip Hopley gives you insight to how top players in sport cope with short term stress and perform well under difficult circumstances. Additionally, in the modern world, our natural fight or flight response is often maladaptive and we need to find ways to combat this. Listen and find out how.

Phil Hopley is a Consultant Psychiatrist and MD of Cognacity, leaders in the application of neuropsychology to sustainable high performance in elite sport and business. He is passionate about coaching people, teams and organisations to be the best they can be.

Why you should listen - The world is not actually the world as we see it. Our brains are natural story tellers. We seek meaning in everything we experience. Managing Mind Traps (the automatic tendency to distort our perceptions) is the key to optimising wellbeing and enhancing performance in this non stop digital era.
