Jasper Blake, head coach with B78, chats with positive sports psychologist Shannon Thompson about horse psychology, getting centred, and leaning into discomfort. For the win!
As an athlete and a coach, Shannon has always been fascinated by the psychology of achievement. Her interest regarding the power of the mind to impact an athlete’s performance and overall experience drove Shannon to complete an undergraduate degree in psychology, and then on to a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. Positive psychology is the science of human flourishing and high achievement, and offers a wealth of resources from which Shannon draws to help athletes find the performance they are seeking.
