#51 Dr Kathy Adcock - In Your Corner: Boxing as Therapy The Sport Psych Show

    • Sports

I have the pleasure of being joined by Dr Kathy Adcock in this episode. Kathy is a clinical psychologist, boxer and England Boxing Level 1 coach. Kathy works as a NHS Clinical Manager, working with parents and young people with a broad range of emotional and relational difficulties. She is also founder and managing director of social enterprise In Your Corner which combines non-contact boxing with evidence-based ideas from psychological intervention within community settings. And it’s mostly this fantastic enterprise that we speak about, specifically finding ways to engage with young people; boxing metaphors for life; the narratives people have about their lives and using sport as a way to become open to being psychologically flexible.
