What Do We Do?
The investigation of Smarter Thinking in performance domains involves conducting laboratory research as well as documenting findings from work we have done with clients in performance settings. We also offer consultancy services using Smarter Thinking as an evidence-based approach for anyone performing in sport or business.

My book comes out soon. It's about REBT...obviously.
It's called "The Rational Practitioner: The Sport and Performance Psychologist’s Guide To Practicing Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy"
Here is a preview of the book: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/365093484_The_Rational_Practitioner_The_Sport_and_Performance_Psychologist's_Guide_To_Practicing_Rational_Emotive_Behaviour_Therapy
Anyone else see remarkable similarities between Ellis' REBT (1950s) and Neff's ideas of self-compassion (2000s)? Self-Kindness Versus Self-Judgment, Common Humanity Versus Isolation, Mindfulness Versus Over-Identification...all exist in REBT right? https://www.annualreviews.org/doi/10.1146/annurev-psych-032420-031047 1/2
Mega ending of the Banana walkers tonight by James “sport is just cultural heroism” and prior to this “as Camus said we must assume that Sisyphus was happy”
While the stoics get credit for REBT Ellis was also influenced by more recent philosophy.
On the 28-29th November we are running our annual #conference with #REBT keynotes on #cancer, #anger, and nature based RE-CB Therapy and Coaching. Follow the hashtag #AREBT2022 for more information.
