The psychology of physical enhancement, attitude, effort and energy with Dan Abrahams (Sports Psychologist)

Pacey Performance Podcast

This week’s guest on the Pacey Performance Podcast is sports psychologist Dan Abrahams. Dan became a psychologist following a stint as a professional golfer with an interest in the mental side of the sport. After calling time on his playing career, he became a coach and followed that up by gaining a master’s degree in sports psychology. He’s been working in this capacity for 16 years now, including for England Rugby, England Golf, and numerous Premier League football clubs. Following the recent Olympic and Paralympic Games, sports psychology has been in the spotlight more than ever. Dan discusses the impact this has had on the subject, including how an athlete’s mental state can be rated on a three-stage ‘traffic light’ system depending on their current needs. He also addresses the theory that you cannot coach attitude, effort and energy - although the athlete is responsible for their own attitude, Dan explains how coaches and sports psychologists can create an environment that engages athletes and helps them maintain all-important intensity when training. If you’re interested in the mental side of coaching and sports science, then this week’s podcast is for you. This week’s topics: How sports psychology is currently split between athlete performance, wellbeing and mental health Why sporting organisations need to address all three as psychology becomes more prominent Why sports clubs on a budget could spend time educating their existing coaches in sports psychology Why it’s said that you can’t coach attitude, effort and energy How coaches can engage athletes and maintain all-important intensity during training How to create a positive training environment that gets the best from athletes Building relationships with athletes – and maintaining boundaries between the personal and professional

Dan Abrahams - sport psychologist: people, players and performers


Dan helps people of all ages and at all levels to perform, in particular in football and golf.  Here we explore the different ways players coped with lockdown and how Dan helped them.  Dan then gets into the role of sport psychology in professional football -- I reckon much of this can equally be applied to life, amateur sport and school sport. He talks about the 3 Ps approach: people, players and performers.  Dan feels strongly that sport psychology should be an integrated part of the professional club, and explains why with his traffic light system: performance, wellbeing & mental health.  This was a fascinating conversation that begs for a part 2. Lots to take away, think about and apply.  Great for coaches, psychologists, people interested in achieving their own peak performance in life, footballers and more. I hope you enjoy. You can read more about Dan and his work on his website. On social media: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Plus, The Sport Psych Podcast on Apple and Spotify, which is well worth a listen.

Man Marking - Episode 55 - Dan Abrahams

Man Marking

Episode 55  Understanding the behaviours of elite athletes.   Dan Abrahams has an impressive resume. He has worked with Eddie Howe at Bournemouth, Eddie Jones at England Rugby, as well as providing sports psychology services to footballers including Richard Keogh, and Yannick Bolasie. His career as a sports psychologist stemmed from his time as a professional golfer. The solitude of an individual sport allowed him a unique insight into the thinking required to become an elite athlete. Since that time, Dan has gone on to become one of the most renowned sports psychologists working in professional sport.  Here at Man Marking, we had long wished to speak to a sports psychologist. The position, whilst commonly accepted as an integral part of modern day sporting environments, is still one that is shrouded in mystery to most fans. We were curious to find out what exactly a sports psychologist did, how much of an impact they could have on a sportsperson or a team, and how their work improving mental performance crossed over with mental wellbeing.  We couldn't have chosen a better person to speak to than Dan. Not only extremely well qualified, and with a broad range of experiences in various sporting environments, Dan has an ability to articulate the knowledge he has acquired in his field into terms a layperson can easily understand. So grab yourself a seat, plug in, and enjoy, we promise you won't be disappointed.  If you enjoy this episode, or any of our other episodes, please pop over to apple podcasts, and give us a rating and a review. https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/man-marking/id1506661828 You can find us on Twitter @marking_man and don't forget to use the hashtag #WheresTheTalkingLads  If you have been affected by any of the themes discussed in today's episode, we have listed some organisations below who are there if you need to talk: Samaritans Call 116 132 for free https://www.samaritans.org/ Papyrus UKCall 0800 068 41 41 Papyrus Website CALM ZONE0800 58 58 58 https://www.thecalmzone.net/help/helpline/ MIND0300 123 3393 https://www.mind.org.uk/ The Kaleidoscope Plus Group0800 059 0123 https://www.kaleidoscopeplus.org.uk/
