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 sport and business. We also offer consultancy services to sport and business organisations using Smarter Thinking as an evidence-based approach for anyone performing in sport or business.

Perhaps the first know study of REBT in sport, was "A rational-emotive mental training program for professional athletes" by Michael Bernard in 1985. Conducted with 40 professional Australian rules footballers, the work reflects an early "5Cs" approach to sport psychology. 1/2

“We must keep a clean sheet...we must keep a clean sheet...we must keep a clean sheet"
...but we need to help players set better objectives
