2nd December 2021 — Charlie Unwin is a leading performance psychologist and mental coach who has trained elite performances from a range of different industries, including multiple Olympic champions, special forces, soldiers, surgeons, musicians, fighter pilots and business executives. As a Mental Coach, Charlie worked with numerous athletes competing at this year's Tokyo Olympics (including modern pentathletes Kate French and Joe Choong).
Charlie's passion for human performance has been uniquely shaped by a varied career, both as an international athlete and as a platoon commander in the army serving on the front-line in Iraq. Charlie is passionate about the concept of training our mind and body to adapt more effectively to life's challenges. He believes that this is something we can all benefit from no matter who we are, or how we define success. Charlie's approach has evolved from a unique blend of conventional wisdom, cutting edge science and an unparalleled insight into minds of the world's most accomplished performers.
Charlie visited Leweston School on Wednesday 24 November to give an inspiring talk to many equestrian and pentathlon students on how to use psychology to perform at your best in terms of performance, talent development, accelerated learning and delivering results under pressure. Leweston thanked everyone who joined for a fantastic evening about using psychology, particularly 'flow' a tool many will utilise throughout our lives.
