Mind Set Game #32: Athlete wellbeing with Professor Stephen Mellalieu

In today’s episode of the Mind Set Game podcast, I sat down with Professor Stephen Mellalieu.

Stephen is a Professor in Sports Psychology and the Associate Dean for Research for the Cardiff School of Sport. He is Editor of the Journal of Applied Sports Psychology and co-founder and Network Editor of the World Rugby Science Network.

Stephen is a Chartered Psychologist of the British Psychological Society, a registered Practitioner Psychologist and Partner with the Health and Care Professions Council, and a British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences accredited Sports Scientist. He has 20 years consultancy experience in high-performance sport, working most recently within professional rugby union.

“My primary research interests lie in the area of athlete welfare, including stress, coping and performance, psychological skills training and behaviour change, and the organisational environment of elite sport. I am particularly interested in how those individuals who operate within high-performance sporting environments utilise personal and social resources as they negotiate the various demands placed upon them across their professional careers. I am also interested in mental well-being in wider occupational environments and the role that psychological skills and resilience can play in facilitating health and performance.”
