Dr Steve Peters

Spent the last couple of days working with him (he's the "part-time psych" at LFC) - really like his ability to simplify some pretty complex science.

 

Has anyone heard any of our players talking about any benefits they've reaped since he came into the club towards the end of last year?

Maybe not his greatest advert at the moment, mind (if you'll excuse the pun).

Steve Peters? He's the psychologist attached to the GB Track Cycling Programme and Team Sky. He's a massive part of that - I didn't realise he's working with LFC, if so a massive well done to whoever sorted it. He's helped turn some massively talented but mentally fragile cyclists (Vic Pendleton, Mark Cavendish, Brad Wiggins to name 3) into world class athletes.

Cav is not and never has been mentally fragile, nor Wiggins.

They've both had belief problems that he's helped iron out. Wiggins especially who cracked under the pressure of leading Sky in the team's first season - Peters spent a lot of time with him helping him get over that. 2 years later he's a TdF winner.

 

Cav's were more around whather he could adjust his riding style for the crack at the Olympics. It failed but he initially didn't think that was a course he could win on

wwiggins was a multiple world and olympic champion prior to winning the tour, cavendish is the best sprinter road racing has ever seen, neither were mentally fragile in any way.

 

Peters has helped out but they have done more for him than the other way round.

Sorry, disagree.

 

Cav does as well. I've had a conversation with him about it ;)

I think Carra has said he feels less of a need to shout. But Sterling still has an unquenchable thirst to shag everything that moves. In a pleasant surprise, Sturridge and the shrink are developing a heavy weed use regimen to cure him of that.

Is it me or is this some iffy stereotyping ground?

He helped sort Wiggins out a year or two ago after one or two quite specific/isolated meltdowns - this one for example

 

He also talked a lot about the work he'd done with Craig Bellamy and Ronnie O'Sullivan, both of whom he was very complimentary about ... as well as all the cyclists. Really fascinating stuff. He was quite tight-lipped about LFC - I assume he has to be, patient confidentiality etc. ... he only talks about work he has done with people when he has their express permission, for obvious reasons.
