David Charlton Sports Psychologist

After being interviewed on a series of podcasts, I realised there were parts of me that I haven’t talked about on my own podcast.  So I invited a great interviewer, resilience trainer for referees and managing director of The Third Team, Nathan Sherratt to give me a grilling and ask me some difficult questions so that you can get to know more about my background.

What we cover in this episode:

  • Why I changed career and chose Sports Psychology as a new calling.
  • How my background helps me relate to client challenges that they bring.
  • Why I’m fascinated with Mental Toughness and place such a huge value on the trait.
  • How the demands and pressures of life and sport are intertwined. 
  • Some of the difficulties I had after the death of my late wife, Alex.
  • How I moved forward with my life and tried to look after myself.
  • How as a Sports Psychologist we support injured athletes and people who are going through difficult times.
